Temple Lake Latest Catches week ending 23/6/19
Temple has been racking up the ‘thirties’, adding another three to the tally this week, the biggest reported falling to an angler on his first visit to the lake.
Ross Genders had a memorable introduction when he landed The Parrot at 31 lb 12 oz, and there was a 31 lb 9 oz common for Graham Collins, fishing peg 13 with a boilie tipped with corn cast close to the edge.
Also landing a ‘thirty’ was Ray Harding, his 31 lb 8 oz mirror adding to his 24 lb 14 oz common reported last week, and also a 20 lb 4 oz common.
Ray was on a four-day session, using 15 mm Sticky Baits Manilla bottom baits with 12 mm Mainline Cell pop-ups over a scattering of freebies close to the island.
David McCallum was also on his first trip to Temple, and he was “well happy” with mirror carp of 28 lb and 24 lb 8 oz, along with a 19 lb 4 oz fish, from peg 2.
Bailiff Tony Sawyers had a mirror of 26 lb and commons of 23 lb 2 oz and 17 lb 8 oz from peg 11, in strong winds and heavy rain, baiting with crushed boilies and hemp.
Luke Luff landed a 26 lb common from peg 4, and Andy Hall had a “mint common” of 18 lb from peg 15 on Sunday afternoon, fishing in the left-hand margin.
And last week we reported how Barry Godfrey, from Morden, landed a 29 lb common from peg 10 on his birthday, casting a Cell boilie tight to the brick ‘monk’ overflow. He has sent us a picture of his fish.
