It’s that crazy time of year again, where one week we are winter fishing and the next we are off out in summer sunshine.
I popped up to St Abbs today as the weather was great. I took two spinning rods and put a spinner on one and a redgill type lure on the other. The sea was as clear and as flat as it gets up there, absolutely crystal. I had a good few chunky coalies that were knocking on 2lb and dropped a real fatty off that was probs nearer 3lb.
Most fish today preferred the redgill lure and I also caught a mackeral and four pollack, losing a cracker of around 5lb that was an amazing copper colour. It just slipped the hook as I went to grab it, a likely story I know
So all in all a good last day with around 20 fish, who needs bait!
