Old Lake Latest Catches week ending 15/3/20
Fresh from landing a 3 lb 6 oz crucian carp in an Old Lake match earlier this month, Tony Morris enjoyed another memorable session, this time pleasure fishing for bream.
Tony and fellow matchman Mark Hathway landed 73 bream for around 200 lb of fish to 4 lb during their Wednesday visit.
Tony had 43 and Mark 30, all on feeder and maggot hook baits on the Front Bank.
The West Ewell club contest on the Front Bank was won by Mike Newland, who fished pole at peg 9 for 48 lb 4 oz of bream to 5 lb.
Runner-up was Ray Smee with 47 lb 8 oz on pole and maggots, ahead of his travelling partner, Ian Farmer, with 46 lb 12 oz.
Just before the predator season closed last Saturday, Adam Bolton achieved an ambition by catching his first zander, after several attempts.
Adam landed the fish of about 4 lb 8 oz on the last but one day of the season, having made an early start, on a freelined one-inch roach head two rod lengths out, in bright sunshine, after baiting up with breadcrumbs soaked in Predator Plus liquid, fishing by the Boathouse.
