Draycote Fishing Report w/e Sunday 24th May 2015
Has the weather been a bit mad this week or is it me? (don’t answer that). But what a week, we’ve had cold wet windy days closely followed by warm sunny flat calm days. It seems that if you’re coming here fishing at the moment, bring everything!
A weekly rod average of 3.8 shows that the place is fishing really well. Remarkably, as well from the bank as it is from the boats, The water has warmed up a fair bit but has remained crystal clear. None of those algae blooms that dog us so much at times have shown up yet. Buzzers and Red holographic dawl bachs’ seem to be the order of the day for most anglers but, if only just to prove me wrong, Lee Henfry and Nigel Keeber weighed in 16 fish for 49lb caught on DI 7’s and tubes on Saturday.
The usual suspects of Tony Broadway, John Dews and Gordon Slack visited us on a couple of different occasions this week and all did extremely well. The best of which was Tony who managed a large number of fish from the bank including a golden trout of about 7lbs.
Other notables this week were, Mr Bob Askew who had a good bag on Tuesday which included 3 fish of about 5lbs. Season ticket holder Mr John Dickens who caught 11 fish in 3 hours on Wednesday on a black buzzer with orange cheeks. Regular angler Mr Paul Farrell, who had a “Good evening” on Thursday, catching 6 fish, using our very popular last 4 hour ticket. Season Ticket holder Mr Sean Hanlon had a good bag on Friday, on a mixture of buzzers and dries.
Best bank areas;
Dunns and Biggin Bay, Lincroft Point, the Cornfield and Toft.
