April 30th Tench fishing

After the last session where things improved I was feeling confident again at catching more tench. I arrived to find the swim I wanted taken by James a lovely fellow tench fisher. He was leaving in the evening so I wasn’t in a hurry to set up anywhere else. So we chatted mostly about the Trent which will become apparent later this year. I plan to fish there during the autumn.

James and me

James headed home and I headed into the swim where the tench had been feeding well. The algae had been blown around and had deposited itself near to the area and the clear area’s had changed 10 yds to the right. It was the undertow that had done this.

Well I had nothing during the evening, which was not a surprise. The mornings were the best times on the lake.

The next morning I started off with a bang with a lovely dark looking tench of 8lbs 2oz

I also had 3 other tench that morning so they were still on the feed. It was still cool but no frost at night and temperatures were constant.

Beautiful sunset

The next morning the fishing just lifted off like a rocket. In 2 hrs of fishing I had 7 tench with the largest going 8lbs 8oz. It was one of the first times this season that I had seen tench rolling over the baited area.

Loverly

At one stage I had 3 tench in 2 landing nets and a double hookup.

In the end I had just a few maggots left and I left the lake at 11.30 am. I needed to be leaving at 5pm because they had a British Carp Fishing Qualifier match the next day. In all I had 9 tench that morning.

The largest male tench this session was 6lbs 6oz and was the last fish too.

23rd April

So after the short session and the pain of having to get a new boiler I was back on the lake once more. I arrived to find that the algae had risen to the surface of the lake and it looked just like a lawn. In places it was so thick it was impossible to […]

16th April Tench fishing (pike)

The weather hadn’t cheered up too much over the last week. There were still cold nights with the occasional frosts at night. I arrived to find the summer bay area pretty quiet. I set up at 10am and was fishing one rod on worm the other on maggot. The bay seemed to be devoid of […]

First tench fishing season 2019

With a big fat blank after big perch I couldn’t wait to start my tench fishing season. This normally starts around the beginning of April or thereabouts. It really depends on the weather and how warm it’s been. This year I’m back on familiar territory and fishing a large lake once again. The area I […]

Trout fishing at Dever Springs

Once a year I normally have a day fishing on the Dever Springs Fishery. It stocks with extremely large brown trout and a good average size of rainbows. I was to fishing with Ross and Mike a couple of guys I had fished with before. Now I don’t normally have the equipment for these fisheries […]

Perch fishing blank

The river season ended with a blank so hardly ideal, however I’ve enough big fish to satisfy my mind. it’s this time of year where I start to think about perch fishing on some of the lakes around me. Normally these lakes are deep and very large large and the perch are late in spawning. […]

Last day of the season and blanking

The wind and rain lashed down all morning. I fished so many swims from all around the fishery drawing a complete blank. The fishery was empty of anglers probably due to the river and weather conditions. It wasn’t the best of sessions for both Andy and I. Still what a season I have had. Some […]

Another 6lb 10oz chub

I was delighted at catching no 17 chub over 6lbs the previous day. I reflected on the fishing and decided to start very early today. The forecast was for very strong winds of 60mph and heavy rain from early morning. I was on the river at 7am thinkng that I would get a small window […]

Monday 11th March and another 6lb chub

After returning to the river after going home for the weekend saw it dropping in height and colour. I was going to fish a swim that has been kind to me over the years. I had been fishing an area at the top of the swim where there was some slack water. I was using […]

Another H.Avon double the very next day

Well after that huge barbel the previous day you could forgive me for fishing the same swim. I arrived at opening hour and moved straight to the swim. Using the same boilie and pva bag approach in the slightly deeper part of the swim. The river hadn’t moved much in height and the colour had […]
