SPORT: Probably the nicest day of the year so far! Buzzers buzzers buzzers!
Stuart Morgan and his boat partner had a cracking day with 20+ fish to the boat!
The action came thick and fast throughout the day with all the fish coming to red cheeked buzzers fished on the floater. Phil’s flats, the shallows and Willow Island provided the bulk of the haul.
Regulars David and Joan had a great morning with 8 fish to the boat. Again buzzers were the way to go and had they had a little more luck David would have landed possibly the biggest fish of the season! David hooked into a monster trout down by Willow and after a lengthy battle spat the hook! It happens to us all, but I get the impression David won’t forget it for a while! None the less they both had a cracking morning fishing! Good angling (almost!!)
John and Tracey Watson had a day out with Paul and they too found the fish keen to take buzzers, along with the green pea! Willow Island and the shallows was again the spot to be in.
Numerous bags were had from the shore today with buzzers once again doing the trick.
I believe the pot is up to £500 for the first and second fish now!
I can’t believe we haven’t had one to the scales yet!
