A warm week where the fishing was hard especially from the bank. Bank anglers did well if they managed one or two fish. Boat anglers who fished deeper down the middle continued to catch. On Sunday when most people were struggling, Steve Lane used a white/green lure anchored off pylon point to take 13 fish with most coming on the hang, 5-6 foot down.
Today, Tuesday, it is much cooler and three anglers have had more than 5 fish each by lunchtime.
If you are planning on coming bank fishing try not to pick a hot sunny day.
