Old Lake Latest Catches week ending 14/4/19
A cold but sunny week made fishing difficult, but with warmer weather forecast, there’s a good chance of a return to the sort of form that provided Chris Chapman with a dozen carp on a 24-hour session.
Chris was fishing peg 2, and in addition to carp to 19 lb he also had two tench, the biggest 6 lb, showing that they are keen to feed.
He also had a few bream, all on 18 mm Mainline Cell boilies cast tight across to the far margins.
Last Sunday’s Hackbridge AS club match was won by Mark Hathway with 45 lb 6 oz of bream on Hybrid feeder and white dumbbells cast six metres short of the island, from peg 14.
Runner-up was Andy Ryan, on peg 46, with 41 lb 15 oz on pole or feeder, ahead of Ray Tingley, on peg 29, with 39 lb 8 oz on pole and pellets.
Fourth was John Swann with 33 lb from peg 20 on pole, followed by Dave Walker with 32 lb from peg 19.
There was also a 50 lb pleasure weight of bream from peg 3 over the week.
