Rough weather at Aberdeen's cliffs
Fishing a roughish sea

Arrived just as it got light and hit three fish within the first hour, best going just under 5lbs. Thereafter it was quite poor, with only one small fish landed and another couple of bites. Bait was fresh lug, so no complaints there – the water was just not rough enough for long enough to get the fish in and keep them there.

Used the dvice again, and it certainly helped in casting a bait further than normal against the wind.
