Lines mostly D3 and fast glass With Black/Green lures , boobie, fabs to mention a few.   On Sunday 24th March due to the increased strenth on the wind the club called off and the others who did go out , called it a day around 12 oclock. 54515664_408577983291883_1899575618824044544_n

 Update to 31st March,  Been a excellent week for the fishing with some tremendous bags coming off.  There has also been a large number of fish returned on Catch/release. Mid Week saw some great bags averaging around 12/13lbs for 4 fish. But several larger fish have been taken and released. Mikey Piper had 4 for 15lbs and released his biggest ever fish. All taken on intermediate line teamed up with Black/green Fritz and Sunburst Blob. The Phenoix Angling club was out on Saturday and had some excellent bags , again averaging around 12/13lbs for 4 fish. One of their members had well over 20 fish alone. On Sunday, the temp was much lower and it was bitterly cold. It was a slower start for the Pencaitland AC, but the WEATHER IMPROVED and so did the fishing. Most of the club had a great day and had fish in numbers.  Regular Kenny Gray had some outstanding sport with 30 plus fish including this cracking Rainbow showen below. Intermediate .or D3 sweep has done great. Cormorants, blobs, damsels, Dancers etc etc have all taken fish in good numbers.55698741_1304777619674988_8151361046020358144_n (1)
