Old Lake Latest Catches week ending 15/9/19
The Old Lake’s bream do enjoy a bit of wet and windy weather, and this week they responded, providing up to 36 fish per angler.
Paul Seymore, from Chertsey, led the way with his big catch of fish to 4 lb from the middle of the Front Bank, on peg 11, using waggler and dead red maggots while feeding groundbait.
And the following day John Springfield, from Merrow, landed 18 to 6 lb from peg 48, along with two tench to 6 lb 6 oz, all on freelined bread paste, showing that less orthodox tactics can be successful.
A few days later, the Dorking AS match last Sunday was won by Martin Cooper, from Carshalton, with 69 lb of bream.
On the carp front, lake regular Claudiu Popa had a successful session of seven carp, the biggest a 16 lb common, fishing peg 2 from Friday night until Sunday morning, using 16 mm UberBaits boilies tipped with 12 mm pop-ups in snowman presentations, over a few freebies.
