Foremark report week ending 17/11/2014
Telephone Number: 01283 703202
Fishing at Foremark again this week remains very similar to the previous weeks both in methods and areas. Minkie boobies on intermediate and slow sinking lines working best although floating fry and muddlers on floating lines have also taken a few fish. The lodge bank, the shores of flamingo bay produced. The banks have again been more consistent than the boats this week. The best results continues to be those anglers that have been more mobile in their approach and also willing to change lines and fly’s to keep the fish coming. On Monday west midlands police force fished a friendly end of season boat match with 6 12 rods for a match average of 2.3 the winner being Mr J Goodwin with 11 fish followed by his boat partner Mr m Cartlidge with 7 fish. The top bank angler this week was Mr G Mann with 7 fish in a 5 hour session taken using orange hot head damsel and a yellow and headed cat’s whisker. While boat fishing on Thursday Mr R smith took 4 trout and a 20Lbs plus pike on a white lure hooked on the outside of flamingo bay and finally netted up by the tower Mr Smith said it was a very good fight.
Water clarity is currently good and the water levels are still very low this week and some areas of the bank may have soft mud/ sand. Just to remind you that we run a no wading above the knee policy.
