Milton Lake Latest Catches week ending 4/6/17
Milton Lake is the place to try for a catch of prime roach, using a waggler on a running line or pole just a short distance out, close to the pads, where they can be lined up with a little-and-often loosefeeding approach. And in the mild spells there are crucians, tench and bream to be caught, along with occasional carp.
Lake regular Alan Derbyshire was back in action again, but this time under match conditions, showing that his tactics work even when there are keepnets in the water.
His net of crucians and a 4 lb 3 oz tench with a couple of big roach gave him a win by over 10 lb in the Fishtales contest with 45 lb from peg 22, on pole and pellets over cupped in groundbait and pinkies.
And Richard Sullivan-Paul, from Kingston, had 40 crucians on a pleasure session at peg 1, along with six tench and a bream, on 13-metre pole and corn on the hook, feeding 6 mm halibut pellets.
