Old Lake Latest Catches week ending 26/1/20
You can pretty much predict when the bream will be keen to feed, by looking at the temperature and whether it’s rising or falling.
Mark Lambert took advantage of a rising thermometer and double-figure values to land nine bream of around 4 lb 8 oz from peg 14, in the middle of the Front Bank.
Mark, from Camberley, was fishing on Saturday with yellow Dynamite Baits Washter, and he also had fish on double red maggot.
Earlier in the week the going was a good bit tougher, due to the low temperature, Paul ‘Tommy’ Hiller winning the league contest with 15 lb of skimmers.
He fished a cage feeder cast to the island, and finished up on a pole with dead maggots and Daiwa Advantage Green Bream groundbait with pellets.
And before the cold snap took hold, Terry Petman, Alan Adams and Ian Chandler, from Mersham, shared a catch of 30 bream from pegs 10, 11 and 12, all on small feeders and double maggot.
