A slow start due to onshore wind but the fish were taking the bait in the afternoon with Bull Huss Tope and Thorn-back Rays caught and returned. Two  Harbour Porpoise swam passed the boat but were hard to photograph. Later in the evening we diid a wildlife trip seeing Peregrine, Roe Deer, Grey Seals and sunsets.

The Loch Lomond boys set out to catch Smooth Hounds and these hard fighting fish liked the taste of the crab baits today with a dozen or more landed on the boat and a good number of rattling bites kept the rods moving.
