Milton Lake Latest Catches week ending 16/7/17
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 in action once again, this time landing an impressive 25 crucians, eight tench, three sizeable roach to 1 lb, along with good numbers of perch.
Alan, from Epsom, fished an 11-metre pole and maggots or 4 mm expander pellets, cupping in 4 mm pellets and maggots, showing the sort of sport that is on offer to anyone who adopts the right approach.
