Kingennie: It’s been a busy week at Kingennie with the Easter holidays and luckily the weather has been kind if not a little windy at times for fishing.
There have been a lot more fish moving on the surface as of late and the better the conditions the better the rise seems to be.
The Bankside appears to be the most popular pond at the moment and it is understandable why; in the past week the pool has produced over a dozen fish over 5lb including Mr Gordon 7 c+r 1@7lb on buzzers, Mr Marshall 5 c+r 1@7lb on buzzers, Mr Cowan eight c+r 1@5lb on dries, Mr Sherriff 1@ 8.5lb and one @10.5lb on yellow dancers, Mr Rennie one for 7lb 15oz and returned one at around 9/10lb. The buzzer fishing has been really good at times but when the weather turns it is better to go on the lures.
The Boathouse is still very clear and this has really changed how it needed to be fished. Lures aren’t quite as effective as they just seem to be following then turning away.
The top method has been 2 buzzers and fab on a floater and just let them swing round in the wind. There have all so been some big fish from here as well Mr Holmes had 1 for 8lb 4oz and put back eight on a blob. Mr Dixson put back 11 on suspender buzzers with two fish estimated to be over 5lb.
The Burnside has been quieter but those that have fished it have been rewarded with some good catches, Mr Gibson had six fish quickly after moving up from the bankside on a bloodworm. The Deid Ferret Club did well taking 27 fish for 52 lb with the largest weighing 7lb.
The Woodside has been very busy and some people have been struggling as the fish seem to be shoaling up and if you are in the wrong spot then it has been tricky. As usual powerbait has been as deadly as ever with most people reporting that as the bait of choice. Mr Reid had his four fish for 7lb Mr White and his son had five for 8lb on spinners.
