On Sunday the 15th of June, Myself, Scott and Tam aka the Salty Dabbler, Salty Tiddler and the Salty Tangler went to Loch Etive for a day of sea fishing
Tam and Scott are more enthusiastic about the sea fishing than I am and had been to Etive fishing a few times. This was first ever sea fishing trip from a boat.
We were on the boat about 8am and went up the loch to an area that Tam likes.
On my first drop I picked up a small cod then on my second drop I landed a Ling. As the day progressed we moved about a bit and caught further codling and whiting. Then came a lull where no fish were caught for a while. We then moved a couple of mile down the loch and hooked up to a buoy and threw out our baits of squid which attracted three Thornbacks and a doggy. Time was getting on so we moved back up the loch and fished for the last half hour catching numerous codling.
We headed back ashore about 5pm.
I quite enjoyed the fishing which might have been poor by some peoples standards but the three of us rather enjoyed ourselves with about twenty five fish for the boat.A lovely enjoyable way to spend a day on a warm summer’s day.
