A brighter day Wednesday with winds that started in the West first thing in the morning which then later went to the Northwest. Draycote members Mike Garner & Tony Broadway fished from Lincroft point using fry patterns to land a brace each. Fishing from the boats Ian Richardson & Bob Smith enjoyed a good days sport landing 15 fish to their boat. The  pair fished with Di 3 sinking lines with a Humungous on the point and cormorants on the droppers. Landing their fish from Albert Bottom drifting towards E Buoy commenting on a “very good day” Draycote member Peter Elliot fished with Stuart Lee over from Canada landing 27 fish to the boat. They also fished in Biggin Bay and around Lincroft point but found popper hoppers to be their best patterns. John Kirk landed 12 fish while out on the boat, using a floating line with a booby on the point and then hoppers on the droppers.
