Temple Lake Latest Catches week ending 14/5/17
There’s been no let-up in the action, with another five ‘thirties’ reported in the past week.
Heaviest of the four was Two Tone at 35 lb 8 oz (see photos) for Mark Constable, fishing his favourite peg 9 and using Monster Baits boilies cast to the far margins over a handful of loose offerings.
Glen Holden landed a 35 lb mirror and a 22 lb common (see photos) from peg 8, on Mainline Cell bottom baits.
Conor Cook, from Westcott, had a ‘thirty’ and a brace of ‘twenties’, the biggest being a common of 32 lb 12 oz (see photo), along with a 28 lb 8 oz common and a 29 lb mirror, all on single 18 mm Cell bottom baits with small PVA bags in open water at peg 12.
And fishing pals John Mason and Terry Baker both bagged ‘thirties’ on a shared session, John’s being a 32 lb 4 oz common, to which he added a 29 lb 15 oz common, and Terry had a 32 lb 2 oz mirror and another of 26 lb 14 oz.
Matt White was also in action, landing three ‘twenties’, a mirror of 26 lb 6 oz, and commons of 25 lb and 24 lb 10 oz (see photos), from the road bank on single baits cast to the island margins.
Blake Watson came close to a ‘thirty’ on a short session at peg 14, tempting the 29 lb 14 oz common (see photo ) on a single Wraysbury Baits McNut wafter cast to the right of the island, off the reeds.
Dan Smith, from Chertsey, had an overnighter at peg 13 and landed fish of 26 lb 5 oz, 21 lb 10 oz and 17 lb 7 oz (see photos) and lost another, casting tight to the reeds with PVA bags of five crushed Mainline Banoffee boilies and a light scattering of freebies.
And Jordan Jeffrey landed a 20 lb common (see photo) from peg 13 at first light, on a 10 mm CC Moore Live System pop-up fished on a 4 ft zig rig.
