1lb 14oz. Tench



A few very enjoyable hours spent fishing in the evening for Tench with Linda, Jim and Ollie. Groundbaited carefully on arrival and was into a Tench of 1lb 14oz. on just my second cast using a strawberry flavoured maize and redworm bait on a paternoster rig, a rapid result. Things then went rather quite with small Roach here and there until the sun dropped and the odd Bream and Rudd were then taken, though nothing of any size. A Crayfish was caught after it tangled itself in my line on my second rod which was fishing a method feeder rig and boilie on a hair. A really good sized Cray it was too! Had two good runs on the method feeder but figure the hair link was too long as neither fish was hooked. At 21.45 a second small Tench of about 1lb. was taken on my paternoster rod, again on the strawberry maize and redworm hookbait. Both Tench gave me 6 points for the evening, though neither was very large, this lake appearing to hold a lot of small fish, though may not be a great site with a view to a big specimen. Still, a beautiful place to spend an evening all the same...
In addition, Simon took three small Pike from the boat on Malaren a few days ago, which gives him three points towards his point total for the season. The points table is now fully updated...
