Old Lake Latest Catches week ending 1/7/18
Bream sport shows no sign of slowing down on the Old Lake, with over 40 fish landed per angler for the second week running.
Ian Burningham, from Chertsey, returned after landing more than 40 fish to over 5 lb last week, along with tench to 4 lb, while fishing peg 9 on the Front Bank with pole and corn or soft hooker pellets.
This time he had 25 fish and a tench, while pal Terry had over 40 bream, fishing a feeder with a long hook length, which proved critical, and hard red halibut pellets banded on the hook.
Ian used an 11-metre pole and soft pellets over groundbait, feeding six small balls at the start and catching immediately, topping up with more later.
Carp anglers were also catching bream, Graham Bicknell, from Midhurst, landing seven in between his 14 carp on an overnighter at peg 2.
Graham had a 25 lb common and a 22 lb mirror, along with the other high-doubles, all on single 18 mm bottom baits over scattered free offerings.
Richard Urquhart, from Croydon, had a successful session at peg 75, around the back of the island, landing 14 fish.
And Mark Constable, from Westcott, did an overnighter in the middle of the front bank and included a 16 lb common in his catch, on a single 18 mm JH Baits boilie over freebies.
