An often overlooked swim which gives some up close and personal fishing. When the fish come into Scottie's they are there to feed, and are ultimately very catchable.
|Prevailing Wind||Southerlies blow straight into Scottie's Corner|
|Average Depth||10ft in the corner gradually sloping to 16ft in the entrance to the bay.|
One rod fished across to the far side, towards the bottom of the bay. 15-16 wraps in line with the end of the overhanging tree off Co's Point are both productive area's. Don't overlook your nearside margin up to the left hand side.
This is a short range, intimate swim where the longest cast is only 60yds. in the Spring and Summer, there are fish frequently moving in and out of the swim. We removed the snags from the far side of the swim in December 2018 where a lot of fish used to hide. This has resulted in the fish feeding more in the swim, as opposed to hiding up. Don't be afraid to spend time with the lines out of the water; it lets the fish move into the bay with confidence.
If you like a big Common, the 'Cut Tail Common' likes this swim and was caught here at over 60lb. The best haul of fish in recent times from the swim was taken by Matt Finch who only fished evenings and nights. He landed eighteen fish from twenty bites in a week! Will Greenhill landed the much sought after "Split Pec" from the 15 wrap spot in May 2019 at a whopping 66lb 8oz. There's plenty of things to make Socittie's a more than viable option.
