well lads , thinking of heading to greenock tomorrow, to see if the mackerel are in the area yet, looking for an early fill of my bait freezer.

whats the chances of it ?

i know its a bit early , but i have had one in loch fyne earlier this year and seen another caught in ft william and heard of others elsewhere, with this warmer weather iv gotta give it a go , if anything it'l get me outa the house for a few hours.

One of the guys from work landed a couple of macs down the rocks north of Largs last week.
Im sure you will get summit, probably only one or two for a gut load of effort though.

there is no fishing at mcinroys now , the new layout of the place does not leave any room for anglers.

now, now Adeys, that's called cheating. :)

i was going to buy a couple of bream from the mongers and take them to anster - pretending i'd caught them there! :g: was to be an excellent april fools. :g:


i'm sure you will soon be into them - a high tide and a sunny evening should do it. i remember fishing at Macelroy's Point (sp) one summer - ye gods - it was a total 'nedfest'. i have to say that they were ok even let me squeeze in (and it was a squeeze - about 20 people fishing that 30 metre stretch of rocks). bearing in mind i have an english accent that was no mean feat.

am i right in thinking they take a while longer to reach the east coast!?
