Bonds Lake Latest Catches week ending 4/11/18
Bonds has been in great form, as indicated by how popular it has been, often the first lake to fill up on warm weekend days.
One of the great attractions is how a variety of tactics work, meaning visitors can fish in a way that they enjoy and still catch plenty of fish.
Pole or feeder, straight lead or waggler, or pellet waggler up in the water with bait fired over the top all work well, and the fish keep on the move, giving lots of anglers a slice of the action.
Paul Benefield was in action this week, landing 12 carp to 10 lb on Friday on Method feeder and 2 mm soaked pellets, using 12 mm white dumbbells on the hook.
Leatherhead angler Paul also had a surprise 1 lb 8 oz roach, casting across to the reeds from peg 14.
A couple of summers ago Paul landed an outstanding 45 carp from Bonds, on waggler and banded pellets, and he has also had catches of 36 bream to 6 lb from the Old Lake, and the week after that 35 tench to 5 lb from Milton.
