Old Lake Latest Catches week ending 19/5/19
Angling pals Richard Urquhart and Paul Downey are no strangers to multiple catches of Old Lake carp, having had plenty of successful sessions, including a shared 31-fish catch in August 2017.
And the Addiscombe and Banstead pair’s latest visit also provided plenty of action, their 34 carp including a 23 lb mirror.
All were caught on 18 mm Mainline Cell wafters over free offerings, at pegs 14 and 16, casting towards the island.
Also enjoying carp action was another lake regular, Hugh Bonsor, from Leatherhead, who caught eight to 19 lb 8 oz in a 12-hour session on Friday, from peg 40, on the same single 18 mm Cell, in open water, using a kilo of boilies.
The Old Lake carp have had a go at spawning, but stopped when the weather cooled and the nights turned more chilly, so their focus is back on feeding until the next run of hot days.
