Milton Lake Latest Catches week ending 21/7/19
Summer is the time when Milton Lake seems to come into its own, as regular on the water Alan Derbyshire showed with his latest catch, from favourite peg 2.
Alan, from Epsom, landed 40 crucians and ten tench, the biggest 5 lb, along with two nice roach, on 11-metre pole and yellow 4 mm expander pellets, feeding 2 mm expanders and small balls of groundbait by cupping them in regularly.
He fished slightly overdepth, to counter the slight undertow in the water, and got through three-quarters of a pint of feed.
And Steve Robinson from Fine Line angling store, in Tooting, had 15 crucians to 2 lb and six tench to over 5 lb, along with a bream and a rudd, from peg 3 on Monday on a small waggler and worms.
