There’s been some autumnal chill in the air with some violent northerly winds whipping down the river. This is rarely a good thing in terms of the fishing, and action has been slower over the last few days. Despite this there was a decent brace for Darren Raynor on his first visit to the Ebro, with Catfish of 134 and 129 caught at Amposta.
A rare outing on the Delta today due to the Amposta slipway being temporarily off limits. There was not much occuring until a take in the early afternoon was connected, and a Cat of 123lb was caught by Steve Bamber, despite at one stage getting into a horrible sunken tree under the bank. The 200lb power pro snag leader was our saviour on this (and many other) occasion!
Another stellar week on the Ebro completed for Dave Toomey, Rob Curry and Darren Langham. The fish have showed up on a daily basis and continue to respond well to Chicken bottom baits in pre baited swims. Out of 9 Cats, 6 exceeded the 100lb mark, and Darren enjoyed a wonderful Wednesday, catching 3 mighty Silure of 155, 160 & 138! Rob had a great final day with fish of… Read More »Lower Ebro Catfishing…. Latest Catch Reports…. Early September 2017
The lb Catfish continue to be caught on a daily basis, and it was the turn of Isac Mircea from Romania with the latest at 107. Chicken carcass fished close to the weed beds was once again the successful method.
An outstanding one day session today for the Sparks family, who originally herald from the US but are currently based in Switzerland. Youngsters Charlie and Theo both felt the sheer power of these Ebro monsters, with 14 year old Charlie landing a 119lber which he struck and played all by himself. This fish was enough to put a smile on everybodies face, but the icing on the cake arrived in… Read More »Lower Ebro Catfishing…. Latest Catch Reports…. Early September 2017
Bottom fishing with chicken carcase has been a revelation this summer and continues to produce Catfish of the highest calibre down on the lower Ebro. One particular hotspot, fishing off a bank of weed north of Amposta, is absolutely on fire at the present moment and has produced 3 gargantuan fish for first time visitor Zsolt Papp from Hungary. He has bagged Cats of 157, 177 and 178 in a… Read More »Lower Ebro Catfishing…. Latest Catch Reports…. Late August 2017
Steve and Luke Twomlo have been dreaming of catching one of the Ebro’s legendary giant Catfish, and with just one day on the water were able to turn this into reality when a 121lber accepted a bottom fished chicken carcase. The fishing continues to be excellent at present, with almost every single session currently yielding something in 3 figures! Youngster Luke struck into the fish before Steve took over on… Read More »Lower Ebro Catfishing…. Latest Catch Reports…. Late August 2017
It’s been a superb return to the river last week after our summer break. There have been a few hurdles to over come, the main problem being drifting weed on certain days making some of the favoured swims almost unfishable. Despite this we have been able to find some suitable areas, with one spot in particular producing a bumper return of 5 100lb + Cats. The delighted anglers have been… Read More »Lower Ebro Catfishing…. Latest Catch Reports…. Late August 2017
July has ended the way it began… with more of the lower Ebro’s giant Catfish being captured by our delighted clients!

The trip was almost rounded off to perfection when Shane hit into another hard runner, but sadly the fish was lost… Read More »Lower Ebro Catfishing…. Latest Catch Reports…. Late July 2017

A few small to mid sized fish were then caught before James Taylor finished the trip… Read More »Lower Ebro Catfishing…. Latest Catch Reports…. Late July 2017
