Seven rigs and my first anchor lost today, what happened to the single digit wind strength? They’ve not done their business yet but it can’t be long now, doubt I’ll get another chance this year for a real big fatty.

I winkled out this fish, my first Sea Trout aboard Das Bite.
I also had two tiny finnock, onwards and upwards to better tides and better fishing.

This was followed by another, slightly bigger fish which put up a scrap punching above its size in the tide before a quick visit to the net and making its onward journey.
These little features are great, with the undulating bottom
these small gaps provide spots for the fish to hold up, rest or ambush passing
food items. Even when these are covered by a few feet of water you can spot the
signs. Three of fish this morning came from spots like this, hundreds of yards
from the main flow.

We started to pick up some nice trout but we did have a few setbacks. The weather wasn’t great, the fish finder failed and most likely, the area we ended up fishing as a result of this wasn’t renowned for the biggest specimens the loch can throw up.

The fishing was as variable as the weather, decent at some points and downright horrible in others, spring time fishing in Scotland I guess. I spent a couple of days trying to track down some big fat Perch at the weekend. There were a few other anglers doing likewise. With nobody giving too much away I’ve no idea how their sessions went but our goal would have been the same at this time of year, a fish with height and girth, the biggest fish of all some might say, in the Perch fishers’ world at least. I kind of agree. I enjoy fishing for them.
