I fished Broughty Ferry yesterday so a short trip across the water to Tayport today.Fished 13:30 to around 20:00.Bait as usual everything going.Wind from s/w.Well i went over basically to see if i could l could catch myself a plaice or two.Fish were hard to come by.Got my first fish a flounder on my first catch then had to wait till 19:00 for my next fish another flattie about an hour after that got another flattie and that was my lot.So my total catch 3 flatties 2 i think may be plaice but i've been wrong before.
The long hours of nothing were passed by helping a couple on holiday with a kid set up gear and get fishing.A thought came to mind when setting their gear up,everything you buy you get instructions but that doesn't happen with those fishing sets you buy.We were entertained by a few dolphins that put in an appearance.Then there was the guy who was setting out to get his boat lifted out the water,who sailed right under my lines.I think if he smiled it would have been the first time in this lifetime.


My first fish a small flounder.


My second fish possible plaice ?


My third fish a possiblly another plaice.

Since i don't seem to be having much luck around the Tay think it's time to roam once again.

I remember a thread last year a few boys arguing till their blue in the face saying you don't get plaice in the Tay, Clearly you do!

You do get plaice in the Tay but i have found more on the Fife side and around Tayport area.Fox it's just a pity there wasn't a few more flatties about...maybe to much competition from dolphins and seals.

there were a good few years they didnt appear ,but there used to be some real crackers out of the tay estuary,2lb plus,hopefully see some of those again soon !used to be good plaice fishing in lots of places in fife but its not been great for a while ,reports from around the neuk would suggest its worth targetting them again.
