Trout season 2020 catch reports

Recommended Posts

Well fished Grafham yesterday which was more like the north sea . Blowing a gale and pouring with rain and it's the first time out on a boat i have ever actually felt sea sick which was a first for me 😂😂 we headed over to the north shore but it was far to windy to fish even with the drogue out so headed to the south shore for some shelter.  Had a fish follow and my boat partner lost one . Him fishing a di3 with a snake and me fishing a di5 sweep with a tadpole.  Eventually the wind dropped enough for us to venture  back to the north shore.  We're eventually we found some fish . I took 5 to the washing line on a Hoover line 4 took the blob booby on point and one took a size 12 black buzzer which made my day nice overwintered fish just going over 3lb . My friend took 3 fish one about 3.5lb all to a black snake.  So in the end 8 to the boat which considering the weather I didn't think was a bad result for us

Fished chigborough yesterday with the girlfriend.  Had a great day on the bigger lake fished 3 hours landed 10 , lost 5 missed countless takes ! Mini black lures, blob and crunchers doing the damage! Was windy but a beautiful day to be out fishing.

Blanked on Saturday, which was a shame!

More importantly I’m trying to figure out if fishing is classed as exercise?

It was deemed that golf wasn't.
