Last week a crew from the Netherlands enjoyed the nice weather while fishing from Red Bay with Hamish Currioe on Predator II…

My latest party of Dutch anglers had some nice specimen fish and quite a few skate as well last week. The only problem we had was catching fresh mackerel so the humble dogfish and coalfish came into play again as baitfish.

I can see this becoming a trend for the season as the big pelagic boat operating from Peterhead is taking 150 tonnes of them a week along with the Icelandic boats. I personally don’t think the ecosystem can sustain that kind of high tech facilitated exploitation, however we will see. Thankfully the fishing for now was good enough to ensure that this crew will return to Red Bay 2015 for their fifth time.
