Milton Lake Latest Catches week ending 21/5/17
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.
Milton Lake seems to attract anglers who come in threes to enjoy some quality crucian and roach action.
Jez Brown, Ray Pulford and Mark Hewer landed crucians to over 2 lb and 15 roach from 1 lb 8 oz to 1 lb 15 oz, along with tench to over 5 lb (see photos below), fishing just 5 ft out in 2 ft of water with pole and maggots or casters, feeding micro pellets and baiting two spots.
Jez commented: “A great day’s sport was had, and we will definitely be back.”
