Temple Lake Latest Catches week ending 3/11/19
Following on from Joe Docherty’s 33 lb 4 oz PB common, there were three more ‘thirties’ reported this week, including the Parrot to Andy Hall at 32 lb 14 oz.
Andy was on a 24-hour visit and also had ‘the slate-grey common’ at 28 lb 8 oz and another common of 27 lb 2 oz.
He was fishing peg 3 and using pellets tipped with corn, getting his runs at 2am, 10am and 3pm, and the Parrot provided him with a new PB.
The last reported capture of the fish was in June, when it fell to Ross Genders at 31 lb 12 oz.
Bailiff Tony Sawyers added a ‘thirty’ to his tally with a 31 lb 9 oz common, from peg 11, on a 12 mm JHBaits Nuti-B pop-up over a few freebies and crushed pellets.
And Matt White also broke the 30 lb mark, his 30 lb 10 oz mirror being accompanied by a 17 lb fully scaled.
Matt fished peg 9, using CC Moore Live System boilies in the margins, getting the fish after a cold night.
Last week we reported that Joe Docherty had a PB 33 lb 4 oz common from peg 10, along with a 22 lb common, both on 12 mm Sticky Baits Manilla wafters over free offerings of hemp and corn. He has sent us pictures of his fish, which he caught with the help of a homemade bait-boat.
