Overcast skies Monday and Northwest winds, with the wind dropping later providing a nice ripple on the water. All water member Andy Lillie fished with Graham England with the pair boating 12 fish from a morning session. Using suspender Minkies and also daddies, fishing near Lincroft Point. They spooned the fish to fish that they have clearly been feeding hard on sticklebacks. Draycote member John Dickens used dries all day to land 9 fish with Crippled Midge and Bob’s Bit being his most productive patterns. Gary & David Turner also fished dries to land their fish, taking 5 in an afternoon session. Ian Watts & Rob Toptalo enjoyed a great days sport landing 30 fish to their boat. The fishing a washing line on a floater, but found it was when the popped and pulled the boobies the caught the majority of the fish. The pair drifted from C Buoy down to Y Buoy finding the fish closer to Y in the morning but as the day progressed caught more at C Buoy.
