Milton Lake Latest Catches week ending 29/9/19
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.
The Priory Farm club contest produced plenty of action, the top weight being 32 lb for Ian Farmer, on pole and 3 mm expander pellets, from peg 2.
Dominic Synic was second with 30 lb 4 oz of mainly tench on Method feeder and pellets, from peg 22.
Equal third were Steve Parkin with 26 lb 12 oz from peg 21, along with of Terry Petman on the same, on pole and pellets at peg 1.
Organiser Ray Smee was fifth with 24 lb on pole at peg 3, including roach to 1 lb 8 oz on worms.
