Milton Lake Latest Catches week ending 20/8/17
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.
The Dorking club match on Sunday was won by Mark Gillard with 39 lb of crucians and tench from peg 21 on 11m pole and 4 mm feed pellets, fishing expander pellets on the hook.
Runner-up was Dave Spear with 32 lb on pole from peg 17, ahead of Pete Growns with 25 lb 15 oz on pole and maggots over little balls of groundbait, and Steve Midgley with 21 lb from peg 19 on long pole and soft pellets.
