Temple Lake Latest Catches week ending 13/10/19
Mark Savage was in action again, landing a 34 lb common from peg 9 on a Mainline Activ-8 pop-up over free offerings glugged in Liver Extract, along with pellets.
Mark gave Temple Lake newcomer Lilleymae Perry some advice on where to cast after her first ever night there, on peg 1, on the down-wind bank, had produced a blank.
The result was five fish, all of them commons and all of them personal bests, weighing 30 lb 3 oz, 27 lb, 26 lb 8 oz, 25 lb 4 oz and 23 lb, on Mainline Cell wafters over whole, chopped and crushed matching bottom baits in Smart Liquid, “pushing my skills to the limit and the reward was amazing.”
And Andy Hall added to last week’s two ‘twenties’ to 27 lb 14 oz with a 22 lb 8 oz fully scaled as he was packing down on peg 9.
Andy fished a snowman presentation over six 15 mm baits and a pouchful of 12 mm to “put the cherry on top of the cake to end a very productive and still testing last few sessions.”
Two weeks ago we reported how Joe Holdsworth had landed a brace of ‘thirties’ and a brace of ‘twenties’, the biggest being Two Tone at 34 lb 8 oz, which he caught last May at 35 lb 10 oz. Joe has sent us the pictures, which are posted here.
