What year? What mods are you using? I died in there once in 1940 after taking out three DD's, but the only ships in there were DD's, at least a dozen of them. Stupid me taking out three, I should have just gone past Scapa but couldn't help it

Just keep going, sooner or later you will run smack bang into a task force with a nice juicy illustrious in it or an escort carrier. I run into 3 now, but then again i have played the game for quite a long time. And it was around late 1941 when i first encountered a task force.

You can find more capital ships in ports
see :

I found additionally Illustrious in Loch Ewe Feb'42 and later the same year.
Frankly speaking task force's meeting is really exciting !

I have found Revenge BB's,King George BB's,Illustious CV's and a lot of Auxilary Cruisers and of course DD's in Scapa.
Don't know the period though.

The biggest warship that i nailed was a Fiji Light Cruiser on Loch Ewe. Ive been there, in Gibraltar, Firth of Forth (i think that is the name), even HALIFAX!!! But never found a single ship (not even cargo ships), except for that Fiji. Now iam using a little mod called SH3 World, that increases the amount of ships. Im coming across 26-ships convoys, but no task force yet... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/bigtears.gif
