How to rework my C# console application code so that it writes out records on a more timely basis?

I am writing a C# console application using VS2010 that reads a check image file comprised of a combination of binary and text data and writes out 3 files.

The application writes out records very slowly. I was wondering if you could suggest alternate code to make it run faster. It only writes out about 2 records per minute to the file with the file extension "ard.out".

My code is attached.

Not sure how significant this is, but you seem to do a LOT of needless skipping...

In the

for (int i = 0; i < bytes.Length; i++)

loop, you skip 0 bytes at
var data = bytes.Skip(i).Take(anchor1.Length);
the first time, then 1, then 2....etc.  If bytes.Length is large, this could involve a LOT of repeated skipping, when you could have done (initially set restBytes = bytes)

var data = restBytes.Take(anchor1.Length);

....
....
....
stuff
....

restBytes = restBytes.Skip(1);

where you never have to skip more than one item per loop.

There are other instances in your code of the same construct.
