St Abbs Head Fishing

Anyone got any experience of fishing out of ST Abbs head in the south east of Scotland?
I'm going thru there in 2 weeks with my old man to do a bit of fishing.
Renting a static caravan in Eyemouth.*
I've never fished the East coast so any words of wisdom regarding fishing tips hazards etc would be greatly received.*

Hi kaman

Never fished there but dived it loads good slipway sharp drop off on springs.be aware it's a marine reserve so you have to go outside that the underwater wildlife is fantastic,cafe there too,I don't know about St abbs but Whitby fishes well on the flood and drops right off on the ebb don't know if that is how the North Sea goes for inshore fishing.
But I will say go north or south it's beautiful especially the head its self you are able to land on the other side of the head the cliffs are dramatic loads of seabirds.you will definitely enjoy it,Eyemouth ,Dunbar and small harbour called rock all good to walk round,good fishmongers & fish & chips in Eyemouth.you can launch of the beach at Eyemouth & coldingham the bay at Eyemouth has some protection from the hurcarrs reef .
Cheers. Jeff

Like Jeff I've never fished but dive it and rib there regularly. Who are you fishing with? If you've not booked look up Peter Gibson and his boat Selkie. Even if you catch nothing you'll get good chat, a ton of knowledge and a decent cuppa.
Dunbar and North Berwick are both worth a trip.

Cheers guys for the replies.
I'm fishing from my own Sib but will be doing a fair bit of sight seeing along the coast as well.
Might as well throw in a few lures sit back relax enjoy the scenery and hope that the fishes are biting.
Doesn't get much better tha that.

"When the wind's in the East the fish bite least," that's my tip for East Coast fishing!

Gutted to have missed out on fishing St Abbs a couple weeks back.
Forecast was terrible for the days we had the caravan hire in Eyemouth.
My old boy took my mum instead.
Maybe next year.........
