Temple Lake Latest Catches week ending 19/5/19
Temple provided a fish of over 30 lb for the fourth week on the trot, this time Artur Truszynski landing a 31 lb mirror carp.
Artur, from Crystal Palace, was fishing peg 2, and he also had a 23 lb common, on a single 16 mm Sweetcorn boilie over a small amount of hemp.
Adam Rogers came close to a ‘thirty’ with his 29 lb common carp from peg 11, casting to the channel between the islands with a 15 mm Mainline Cell wafter and adding free offerings.
Earlier in his session he had landed a lovely 19 lb fully scaled, casting to the pads to the right of his swim, over a few freebies.
Last week we reported Joe Holdsworth’s capture of Two Tone at 35 lb 10 oz, one of four in his session at peg 14, the others being commons of 28 lb 10 oz, 28 lb 8 oz and 20 lb 8 oz.
He then added a 26 lb common and a 24 lb 1 oz mirror to take his tally to six fish, a seventh fish being lost to a hook pull.
He has sent in pictures of the fish, which were on JHBaits snowman presentations of 18 mm B4 boilies tipped with 12 mm pink Nuti-B pop-ups, fished in the gap between the islands and in the island margins, over a mixture of 16 and 18 mm B4, putting in 50-60 baits after each fish.
