A wild day up here today with constant north easterly winds and bright sunshine throughout. This hasn’t stopped the fishing however, with some good results achieved from the boat anglers we have had on today.
Keith Sprung had 4 fish to his boat. He caught along the East bank and had his fish in the morning.
Chris Sharples and boat partner Davy Howe had a good days sport out there amongst the waves today. They landed 10 fish to the boat between them, the lions share falling to Chris with 7 fish in total. They fished a slow figure of 8 using fast intermediate lines with blobs and cormorants in the Northern Shallows, East bank and Grindys.
Chris Aldred had a good day today with 7 fish in total to his end of the boat. He caught using a black/gold cormorant. His best fish was a 4lb blue but unfortunately it wasn’t a tagged one! Well done though that is a good tally.
His boat partner Geoff Thomas was top rod today with a cracking 10 fish to his end of the boat. Geoff was using a fast intermediate line and used a slow figure of 8 retrieve and saw action on a cats whisker, tequila blob, diawlbachs and a clan chief. Their best areas were the Northern Shallows, East Bank and Grindys. Top notch stuff Geoff!
Thanks lads for another good visit to us here at Stocks, safe travels tonight and enjoy your curry!
