Temple Lake Latest Catches week ending 14/4/19
The first capture of Nemo each year is always a special moment, and this time it was Aaron Warner who took the honours, recording a weight of 45 lb 8 oz.
Aaron was fishing peg 12 with Vanilla bottom baits cast between the islands, and he also had a 27 lb common and a 21 lb mirror in the same busy hour.
And the Double-Row Linear was also landed, Dan Mayne bagging himself a new personal best with a weight of 39 lb 6 oz, having caught the fish at 37 lb back in March 2016.
The latest capture came from peg 11, on 15 mm Mainline Cell in a snowman presentation, over a few loose offerings between the islands.
The fish was last reported back in September at 37 lb 6 oz, to Matt White, and last July it weighed 39 lb, to Terry Baker, its then heaviest weight.
Also in action was Ray Harding, from Mitcham, who landed a 19 lb 10 oz common on a 24-hour session on Saturday, using an 18 mm Sticky Baits Manilla wafter over a few loose offerings, at peg 1.
Last week we reported how the Silver Common fell to James Whitmore at 35 lb from peg 9 for a new common carp PB, on Cell, in open water.
He has sent in a picture, which is posted here.
