Got some fish, and a leak!

Out of Montrose yesterday on my 3.8 ie/Mariner 15 2 stroke.
Bit breezy and a mixed chop going on but comfy enough for some fishing.

Managed 9 Mackerel before heading in as it was getting too lumpy for comfortable fishing. SIB started behaving very odd when I opened up a bit, stuffing the bow at an angle, then I noticed one side of the floor sucking down and flexing.

Got home and cleaned up, flipped her over and soaped the hull, suspected the patches I had applied after mice had a chew in the garage. No leaks at the patches but the adjacent seam where the "shark skin" finish joins the seam strip had a 4" line of tiny bubbles.
New patch kit and PVC glue on it's way.

Hi Warder..

Plenty mackerel over in the west too.. fortunately no leaks to be seen over here.

It took me two hours to find the shoal..but when I did..every time I pulled in the three lures..it was a full house. My boat acted a bit strange too..it normally planes no problem with its 6HP engine..but with the bucket full of fish right at the rear.. it took the wee OB a while to get out the hole.

It reminded me of the gannet I saw .. it couldn’t fly because it was so fat with its fish dinner

Glad to see they are decent size mackerel around this year too..not many wee ones.. not like last years small fry. My freezer is full of winter bait already



Tight lines and good luck with them leaks.

Cheers Gurnard, yep all nice size fish. Just had one with some bread and butter, still warm from my neighbours smoker

At least I also have my 4,8m Smartwave to get out on, covered over a 100 miles in 2 trips over the last 2 weeks, 60+ on Lomond starting the running in on the Yam 60 and 40+miles on Tuesday, Montrose to Catterline via some caves and cliff views fab sunshine and calm seas - Neptune must have been in a great mood that day

Hi Breezeblock..Loch Linnie and Loch Leven are full of them..as are Loch Fyne and Loch Goil..its been a few weeks since I was at Oban..but I got a few down easdale way nack then.. just a case of finding the shoals..plenty around

That bucket full came from Loch Leven ..took me two hours to find them..but had to stop fishing after half an hour as I didnt want to slaughter them..they are still all down deep..I have not caught any near the surface yet

Ferryden, right through the village to the car park by the water. I also trailer launch my 4.8 Smartwave there at any state of tide, always deep water without getting my car tyres wet! (NP300 Navara) and only 5 miles from my house
