4lb 3oz. Bream, my biggest swedish Bream to date...
A day out at the Slott went somewhat away from the planned chain of events, the plan being to catch some bait and proceed to the tip of the slott to fish for Pike. As it happened, frustratingly, not a single baitfish could be tempted and we ended up on the bridge to try for bait there. No baitfish were present, though Bream were. Simon and I had a number of bites culminating in a 4lb 3oz. fish to my own rod, my biggest swedish Bream to date and a 6 pointer to boot!
After an uneventful couple of hours at the tip we decidede to return to the bridge where Simon had a 2lb Bream, awarding him his fist point of the year. Ed and James then arrived in time to see the fish of the day, another surprise from the Slott from right under the bridge, a cracking 2lb. 2oz. Ide, another new species from this site, which never fails to hold a surprise or two every year. This noteworthy fish netted Simon another 6 points.
The day wore on very quetly, Simon headed home whilst the rest of us fished on. At about 18.30 the Roach suddenly began to feed heavily and we caught an absolute stack of them, some of them reasonable fish. Headed home after a good day out happy with a good days fishing...
As a footnote a day out last week at Lidingö, generally unproductive, did produce a Pike of around 3lb. for James, the fish falling for a lure, earning him his first point of the year.
