The Area is Fishing really well at the moment

The Area is Fishing really well at the moment.We had a Fortnight of Strong Winds and heavy rain which caused a lot of disruption for the small Boats,Charter Boats and the Shore Anglers but lately we had some cracking weather again, and both small Boats and Charter Boats have been getting tremendous Fishing with lots of Anglers busting their PB,s and some catching their First new Species. During the Bad weather Lochryan Sea Angling Association held their 3rd Match of the Summer Series, this was meant to be on Monrieth Beach but had to be switched to Terrally bay because of Floating Weed. It was the wrong Tide for Terrally  ,but a few Dogfish and 1Bass and a Grey Gurnard were Landed.Results   Longest Bag  1st Eric Mclean 112cm 2nd David Muir  109cm 3rd Alec Bell 108cm  Longest Fish  1st Brian Goupillot  Bass and 2nd John Higgins Grey  Gurnard.
