Bonds Lake Latest Catches week ending 17/3/19
The carp are becoming increasingly catchable, now that temperatures are on the rise, and there are still roach and perch being caught on pole or waggler tactics, along with a few accidental carp.
Father and son Martin and Alfie Swieton decided to try somewhere more sheltered after a windy start on the Old Lake that produced several bream, and were rewarded with a 17-carp catch on Bonds.
The biggest fish weighed 11 lb 10 oz, and all fell for pink wafters cast tight to the island over 6 mm pellets.
And Richard Nathan, from Carshalton, had five carp, four of them doubles, the biggest 11 lb 14 oz, on Pineapple or Monster Crab boilies over loosefed pellets.
