Lower Ebro Catfishing…. Latest Catch Reports…. Mid November 2014

Paul Baber and Rob Taylor have recorded some decent results over the past week in dropping November temperatures.. with 4 out of the dozen Catfish boated going over the 100lb mark.

Conditions have been mixed, some of the cloudy days offered action throughout the session, whilst the sunny days proved more productive around twilight or an hour or so into darkness.

Both the guys recorded a best fish of the trip of exactly the same weight at 137lb. Rob took his fishing after dark drifting past the chicken factory where large shoals of mullet were gathered. Paul’s fish was taken far down the Delta on a margin drift at twilight.

PB for PB. This 137 gave us an emphatic take at twilight and a lively scrap.

A mad half hour was capped by Rob's 137.

Other Catfish over the ton included a 105 taken by Paul in mid afternoon from the margins of Isla de Gracia, while Rob took a 107 shortly after dark on a brown water hotspot on a day when the river had fished well.

We managed to coax this 105 out of the margins in bright sunlight
