Lower Ebro Catfishing…. Latest Catch Reports…. Late March 2018

An excellent trip this year for the ‘ambulance crew’ of Martin Campbell, Del Elliott & Ray Jennings who have all bagged treble figure Catfish in a 3 day trip.

The first day belonged to Martin, who took a couple of fish on the legered chicken approach, with baits fished close to the margin up stream of Amposta. The first was a modest sized 55lber, but this was followed by a more respectable 116 lb later in the afternoon on Big Cat Alley.

Day 2 saw action with fish of 81 & 64 caught by Del, with Ray getting off the mark on a 74. The final day was looking like a quiet one until the river came to life in the final hour of the day. Ray and Martin were hooked up on fish of 120 & 81 on one boat, while on the other boat Del whacked into a lovely fish of 130lb to really put the gloss on the holiday.
