Hi All
I fished taynuilt slipway for first time today.
Not quite as good as i had hoped!!
Lovely place ! and the guys i met had caught some mackies one doggie and a thornback earlier on.The latter two were some of the species
That i had been targeting on this weeks break ( with family)
I fished alongside my 14yr old daughter ! who usually catches the best one's if she is with me
We fished at low tide for five hours ! when we left the water was fairly
racing in! I have read a lot of posts about etive ! hadnt heard you needed a grip lead that could doubled for an anchor on the QE2 before
We used mackie strips on pulley rigs ! also tried spinning dexters,jelly worms ,krill mackie feathers.at same time as bait .
What did i catch ??? thats right zilch!!
Well apart from three gurnards of some sort.
Do have a pic will put it on later just so someone can identify it!
whatever they were ?? it was new species to me!
But they were very small about a pound for the three of them combined. We also tried an hour at Ardchattan priory !! but same result. We probably fished wrong spot there as there was no one else there!! the bit we fished was straight down from the church with the blue door??? I have a few days left before heading the 200 miles back home,so i hope i will get out again at least once more
And might yet get a (thornie) .doggie or spurdog,that i came here to
try to catch for the first time.
Regards

Hi,
I fished there last week and didn't catch much either. One Dogfish in 5 hours. I used mackeral for bait and one hook rigs cast quite far out. Going by the reports I read on this forum I thought I might be in with a chance of catching a Spurdog. It was raining for a while before I arrived there last week so there would have been a lot of freshwater in the loch and that might have affected the fishing. Also, loch etive is said to fish better at night but I'm sure you could still get a few fish during daylight. I might be back up soon and I think marks like the church or the area around the connel bridge look better since the water is deeper. However I've heard that around the connel bridge you need big grip leads to hold bottom due to the tide. Also you could try the dunollie castle to ganavan area outside Oban. I've never fished there but I have been in the area and there are one or two posts on here from a few years back saying that it is good for pollack and dogfish. Sandeels and squid might be worth a try also. good luck

Give it a try during darkness and you should see your results improve . Also give Sandeel and Blueys a try from up there. best with a grip lead as well as the tidel race can be very feirce esp there where the loch narrows
