Summer 2013

What with holidays and family commitments I rarely get the chance to do that much fishing in July and August, and that was true for this year too. The inflatable got wet a couple of times off Skateraw as I headed out in the early morning for a few mackerel and codling, and I met up with Ian for a trip out of St Andrews in early August, but Alcatraz saw no action at all.

To be fair, the second trip on the the little SIB was on a beautiful calm morning and I had a couple of hours on the River Garry wreck which produced a nice ling of 9.5lbs plus some decent codling and pollack, so there were certainly fish about for the taking.

Ian with a decent St Andrews pollack - he's had much bigger fish than this oneSt. Andrews was slow at times, with a lot of small pollack and codling showing, although Ian showed his customary expertise with the spinning rod and knocked out several decent pollack as we sat at anchor.
