Milton Lake Latest Catches week ending 11/8/19
Milton Lake is the place to head for if you want tench, bream, crucians and specimen roach, along with a chance of a bonus carp, either on waggler with a running line, or pole close in or up against the lily pads.
Fish can often be lined up with a little-and-often loosefeeding approach, using small baits and very small balls of groundbait, and are particularly active when the weather is warm.
Richard Goodchild enjoyed a memorable capture when he landed a roach of exactly 2 lb to crown a successful day’s fishing with a small Drennan maggot feeder.
The Tenterden angler also had 15 crucians and ten tench, five of which were over 5 lb, along with the big roach, which was weighed and witnessed, all on white maggots with two on the hook.
