JSB reports… This was our first visit to Glencorse in 2009 and we had a slightly lower than average turn-out of 14 anglers. The conditions were very respectable for the time of year, with the westerly wind varying from light to moderate. It did swirl a bit in various areas, as it is wont to do on Glencorse, so drifting was awkward at times. The temperature was reasonable however and the overhead conditions varied from light cloud to bright sun. At this time of year sunny conditions don’t seem to put the fish off to the same extent, although there weren’t many fish showing for most of the day.
Most people had a fair bit of sport, with 3 boats having 11 fish each. Len Newby and Ivor Young were both using a slowly retrieved Green Fritz lure on an intermediate line on the Road Shore. John Robertson and Bob Norris stayed in the Dam Basin with a slowly retrieved DI3 and a Black Tadpole and a Damsel respectively. Tommy Steven and Hugh Thomson did very well to get their 11 at the Top End as they had to make a return trip to the Boat House thanks to both a broken rod and a broken outboard. Black and Yellow tadpoles on a DI3 did the business for them.
Special mention has to be made of Trevor Gibson’s basket of 19 taken on a Yellow Dancer and Orange Blob along the Road Shore. Total catch for the 14 rods was 73 fish, 56 of which were returned. We look forward to further success at this venue over the next few months.
