the Cliffs o Cunningsburgh is not too bad, mostly Mackerel cod n piltiks there
Lunna for some deeps close in, Cuckoo wrasse, cod, piltiks, olicks..good range o fish there...head up the grutwick track for the best places
and there's always the loch o hellister in Weisdale, cod flukes n piltiks a plenty
or if you're feeling fit head for Stavaness in North nesting, large salt loch with quite a few monsters hiding out

the best place to fish there is just below the viewpoint opposit the skerries and maybe a wee bit further south because of the weed. Don't let anything settle there or you'll lose it
At lunna, baits close in for the olicks and wrasse
spin deep or drop some feathers for most everything else
and if you catch a wee mackerel for bait you can be almost assured of a blind hoe or 2 but only really with the freshest of bait
Hellister is good for spinning or baits, drop a bait in there and you're gonna catch pilticks...no smaller than 3lb anyway

There are some good rock ledges with high tide, and with low tide there is a rather obvious stone which sticks out a little bit, and is a favourite spot for sillocks. I can't remember the name of the stone, but ask any of the older Cunningsburgh folk and they'll know the one I mean.
That stone is where I got 16 score of sillocks one night.. my personal best.
Further north towards the Mail Sand, there is a reasonable chance of a trout at the right time of year, but not much else.
PS. Flawsey4, the stone I mentioned is easier to get onto than Kilderbroch.

Are they still getting a lot of fish off Blacksess pier at Scalloway?
Quite often see ones along the deepwater berth and around where the Gemini was- what specie do you catch there?
