Draycote Water Fishing Report Friday 3rd November 2023

Posted by & filed under Reports.

Friday was bright and sunny to start with but clouded over as the day progressed. We had lighter breezes than were forecast and this made for a comfortable day out on the reservoir. On the bank today were Tom Johnson and Dave Ward who between them netted 7 fish, using crunchers and snakes at the Swans Nest. Tony Broadway also fished the bank to net 4 fish using FAB’s and crunchers at various points along the northern shoreline. On the boats Graham Homer caught 3 fish using cormorants down in Toft Shallows. Another season permit holder Paul Havard fished at the western end of the reservoir, netting 4 fish in total. Paul used a floating line with small crunchers on the droppers and a candy booby on the point. Kevin Hart used a clear glass intermediate and olive zonkers to net 5 fish near the Farborough Dam, with two of his fish weighing in at nearly 5 lbs each. Jon Crowley caught 5 fish during a morning session. Jon fished around C buoy and along the Tower Bank using a fast glass line with cormorants.
