No Tench but..

Post by Aquaerial » Sat Mar 28, 2015 7:46 pm

There was a proper ol' chop on the lake this evening

I knew I'd grabbed the wrong evening to start my Tench campaign but there is always a compensation.. the Bream love a bit of chop to the water..

I didn't net them up and this was the best of the bunch...so nice to feel the buzz of a possible Tench again even though by the time I packed up you could virtually surf the blimmin' lake.
Happy days,

Nice size bream :Thumb:

Although we have had a very mild winter again in the southern half of the UK , temperatures are generally poor ie few hard frosts but hardly any days with temperatures reaching double fugures, plus often northerly or easterly winds - so definitely not tench conditions - yet.

Still waiting for the tench to wake up up here too. Consoling myself with trout.

Made the breakthrough last evening, not big but the first tench of the year is always special....

Had some hoofing great breams too....

The moat was very kind, had a couple of rather nice carp too.
