The information that I'll give you on these pages is based on my own fishing experiences
in these areas,and those of fishing friends of mine. Times to fish and tides to fish are certainly not set in stone and you
may well find that someone else who has fished these places will give you a different opinion.Such is sea angling as I'm sure
you are all aware. You may easily find that going at "the wrong time" may give you a bagfull of fish,and by following my lead
Likewise bait is really a matter of personal preference,and I don't think it's worth
saying much about specific baits for each mark.I use just about anything I can lay my hands on including crab,lug,rag, squid,herring,
mackerel ,razorfish, mussels,lures, spinners,jellies etc. All that I can say is that it seems that the winter fish in
this area will take all the above ,but the summer fish don't seem to have much interest in the squid or the fish baits.But,again,that's
maybe only something that you'll be able to gauge by trying them yourself.
Another thing I'd like to mention is that there are probably a hundred rock marks
between Elie and Crail and more often than not they'll hold fish.At almost any point where you have kelp beds,you'll have
red cod.For this site I have concentrated on the rock marks that are both productive and relatively safe.Rock marks that give
you at least 2 or 3 hours fishing without having to constantly watch your back,and constantly move to keep away from the incoming
tide.If anyone has other rock marks in this region that they fish and feel that they fulfill this criteria,please do email
me and I'd be happy to include it on this site.
Last thing I'd like to say here is do not go fishing these rock marks alone,and do
not go fishing them in rough weather. None of the rock marks here are suitable for rough weather and you would be very foolish
to try to do it.Always fish with a friend as no matter how sure footed you think you are,you just never know when
you might tip over into the drink.And in these sort of places.You won't get out.
If you do fish any of these marks and get some fish,I'd be delighted to see a picture,hear
of your experiences,and be very happy to instigate an area on this site to show off such info.You can contact me at this address
