Old Lake Latest Catches week ending 6/10/19
It is great to be able to sit down at almost any peg on the Old Lake and catch lots of sizeable bream, perhaps over 100 lb in a day.
But that’s what you can do at present, the latest club match, with Hackbridge AS, being won with 95 lb of them.
Paul Williamson used pole or bomb and pellets, at peg 13 to take the honours, ahead of John Everiss with 90 lb on PVA pellet ‘tea-bags’ and pellet hook baits, at peg 1.
Third was Gary Simmons with 76 lb from peg 3, ahead of Paul Taylor on 64 lb 10 oz at peg 11, and Andy Ryan in fifth with 63 lb 12 oz from peg 46, on pole and pellets, using 4 mm on the hook.
A pleasure session for the bream provided over 70 lb of fish, many of them 5 lb, for Rob Drasey, from Lingfield, fishing peg 36 on the Long Bank on Saturday in flat calm conditions with pole and pellets.
Among the carp catches, Stuart Liddle, from Reigate, had eight fish on a 24-hour session at peg 2 on Saturday, the biggest an 18 lb 3 oz common and an 18 lb mirror, five of his fish being commons, on single 16 mm Sticky Baits Manilla boilies, over spodded hemp and crushed boilies.
And Terry Lawrence, from Beckenham, had seven carp to 20 lb 2 oz in the Jungle, on 14 mm Premier Baits Peach Melba boilies.
An overnighter at peg 75 produced four carp to 21 lb for Barni Kocsis, on single 20 mm Scopex bottom baits alongside PVA bags of crushed freebies.
