Draycote Water Fishing Report Saturday 2nd September 2023

Posted by & filed under Reports.

Despite the forecast for Saturday we had light breezes and good cloud cover right through until late afternoon. Again Draycote did not disappoint, producing a rod average of 5.1 on what should have been a difficult day. Hares ears, buzzers and crunchers showed up everywhere on the catch return as well as blobs and FAB’S, mostly fished on floating lines or midge tips. Season Permit holder Alan Grant took to the bank near the old pipe in Biggin  Bay to net 4 fish on a floating line and buzzers. Staff member Mark Braun had a cracking day over in Biggin and Duns Bay, netting a total of 11 fish on boobies and black buzzers. Jon Crowley netted a dozen fish during a morning session on ginger midas and claret bob’s bits. Jon worked the outer edge of Duns Bay, past D buoy, as well as A buoy and Rainbow Corner. Young Ed Douglas had 15 fish to the boat on dries such as crippled midge, bob’s bits and culs.
