Go Fishing NI’s ‘Catch Report’ – Wednesday 16th November 2016

Another instalment of the catch report, reporting news on catches across Northern Ireland.


Craigmore Fishery

Weekly report 10/11/16 to 13/11/16
Can I ask anglers to remember the basic handling rules for fish as I have saw a couple of marked fish. When possible unhook the fish in the water without touching it, if your barbs are squezed this is easy. If you have to use a net unhook the fish with snips without touching it. DO NOT then lift the fish out of the net with your hands and place it back in the water, use the net to put the fish back in the water, you shouldnt have to touch the fish at all but if you do ALLWAYS wet your hands first. This basic knowledge will keep the fish in pristine condition and prolong their life… This weekend saw a big dip in temperatures with the roof of the hut white with frost on friday morning, but still a few caught on dries with more just below the surface. Steven Best landed 14 on Friday and 17 on Saturday on damsels, yellow dancer, butchers and lures 2@6-7lb and a few 3-4lb. Andy Maguire 20 on lubes 1@4-5lb. Gary Rock 17 on lures 14@lb,1@6lb and 1@8lb. Ryan Esther 8 on lures 1@5+lb. Jim Magill 12 on on spiders and dawlbachs few 3+lb. Barry McFarland landed 15 and lost guite a few on black shipmans 1@4-5lb and a few 3+lb. Martin Foster 13 on lures 2@3-4lb.
