May 29 Inshore codling at St Andrews and Dunbar

A couple of quick reports on St Andrews and Dunbar at the end of May/early June. First off was a trip in Ian’s Raider a few miles along the coast from St Andrews. This proved to be a fairly typical trip – i.e. plenty of codling – and we picked up around 30 each, plus a good number of small coalies. No mackerel, although the sonar and other boats suggested they were about in decent numbers.

A few days later I took my inflatable out for 2 or 3 hours from Skateraw beach near Dunbar – this time the coddies were slow to put in an appearance but there were plenty of mackerel. Coalies around in numbers too, plus a little pollack and a short spined sea scorpian to round off the species count.
