Temple Lake Latest Catches week ending 8/9/19
Mark Savage found carp showing around the lake and perfect weather for his week-long visit, and he made the most of the opportunity with seven fish to 32 lb 2 oz.
The biggest fish came at the end of his session, and was his only mirror carp, the others being five 20 lb-plus commons and one of 17 lb.
Fishing peg 9 to the left-hand margin, tight to the pads, Mark started with a 24 lb common, then the 17, then a 24 lb 7 oz common, then one of 26 lb 7 oz, and a 25, before he ran out of his fishmeal pop-ups and had to switch to Mainline Activ-8.
He still added a 20 lb 2 oz fish and then the big mirror, this one on a 16 mm Baitworks Scent from Hell pop-up, with pellets glugged in Liver Extract.
Also landing a ‘thirty’ was new member Max Delahunty, on his first visit, bagging a 30 lb common and adding a 26 lb mirror for good measure.
Max was fishing peg 3 with 16 mm Sticky Baits Manilla pop-ups cast tight to the island.
Chris Spencer, from Great Bookham, landed a 28 lb common from peg 1, on an 18 mm Mainline Cell bottom bait in a snowman with buoyant corn, over a few freebies.
And last week we reported that Jose Garcia had a 24 lb 7 oz fully scaled, on a home-made Peach boilie.
This week he has added a 21 lb 6 oz common, from peg 14, on a home-made Toffee and Coconut boilie and a Ronnie rig, with six baits in a PVA bag, casting tight to the island.
