A view on Fishing,Community and Life on the NW coast of Scotland

Deceptive Appearances.

Seeing as prawn levels were low and squat lobsters were non-existent at the Inn it was back on the water with an indifferent forecast. Southerly becoming calm and then going round to the north-east. Unfortunately it blew as southerly force 4 until about 3 o’clock before quietening down so hauled 350 creels bouncing about the Sound and only the last in a bit of peace.



Such a change in the weather on the way in it was hard to believe that it was the same day but how often do we say that here.

The numbers of seals seem to be increasing and look well relaxed.


There seems to be a lot of blue whiting about. Normally they do not survive well in the creels and drown to get eaten by crab/squats /prawn. The fact that there were a number of live/fresh ones tells you there were large numbers around. May attract the bigger feeders, be good to see some dolphins and porpoises.


Leaving the Inn after a very pleasant shift all was peaceful and quiet looking across to Rona from the Street.
