Scourie Monday: Mackerel day.

Monday: Is Mackerel day

A small haul, later we caught a few more 

Waiting for Kevin the Crab's Catch
It was a day of brilliant sunshine and a fairly calm sea. Scourie Jetty sits just below the hotel. And moored out to sea sits Richard’s RIB*. So off we went to catch a fish. 

There was not that many mackerel about, I think they had still to journey further south from more northern waters. However we caught some and one Pollock, which will make fish cakes. In the evening we ventured out again with Anthony and Charlotte and caught more. 

And in between was a trip up to Kinlochbrevie to meet up with ‘Kevin the Crab’. He and his crew were out for lobster and crab that day and thus provided the hotel with a goodly catch for the menu this coming week.
