Temple Lake Latest Catches week ending 29/9/19
Every year this time is a busy one for catches on Temple, right up until the first run of frosts at the end of October.
And it’s shaping up well with four ‘thirties’ reported in the past week, including a brace to Joe Holdsworth.
Joe landed Two Tone at 34 lb 8 oz (this time last year it weighed 32 lb 8 oz, to John Keatley) along with a 33 lb 12 oz mirror and a 28 lb 8 oz common and a 26 lb 4 oz mirror.
He was fishing peg 14 in midweek with 18 mm JH Baits pop-ups, and the same company’s baits did the business for bailiff Tony Sawyers.
Tony landed five fish during his 48-hour session, which he was finishing this weekend, the biggest 31 lb 10 oz, along with a 28 lb 6 oz common, a 25 lb 5 oz common, a 24 lb 7 oz mirror and a 23 lb 8 oz scaly mirror.
Successful bait was Nuti-B crushed up and scattered in the area, fishing a single 12 mm pop-up over the top.
And Andy Hall, from Cranleigh, had never had a Bury Hill ‘thirty’ until this week, when an overnighter produced a mirror of 30 lb 4 oz for him, on a 12 mm Mainline Cell pop-up.
