Foremark has continued fish well despite some challenging mix of weather this last week with some frosty mornings, strong cold East North East winds and clear and very bright afternoons.
The fish are still holding close to Verdon’s point and Flamingo bay, however some boats are now taking some good fish around the dam wall near the car park and a few fish are showing down Carvers arm between Sun blest bay and Bramble bay.
Fishing on sinking lines or intermediate lines in the early mornings then switching to floating lines with buzzers or the washing line have been taking fish in the afternoons.
Verdon’s point down to the sailing club have been producing fish from the banks in the mid to late afternoons this has seemed to be a regular occurrence from the start of the season.
Noticeable catches of the week:
Derby county angling club member Mr J Chilton bank fished on Tuesday and landed 15 fish while Mr P Fitch landed 13 on black buzzer. Friday was a good day for season permit holder Mr S Wilson taking 16 trout and a 15lbs pike on a DI7 line by the dam wall. Mr B Price had 10 trout to his boat and Mr Fitch was back again and took another 13 fish. A Tough day on Saturday with a very bright and breezy day but Mr C Martin banked 12 fish.
Mr D Dodds fished from the bank on Sunday with Damsels and buzzers and netted 9 fish while Mr J Woodward took 13 fish by fishing deep with a white lure.
