The NEW LAGOON continues to fish well, even with the drop in water and air temperature. Venue bailiff Bill, had a busy day last week, catching several Tench between 4lb and 6lb.
Other members have also enjoyed the brilliant Tench fishing on offer. Roach to over 1lb continue to show and plenty of small Carp to around 6lb have been caught. We recently netted the New Lagoon so that we could remove some Pike and monitor the young Carp that were growing on in there. We removed several Pike into double figures which were moved to the Ballast Pit and chipped, weighed, recorded and moved 40 Carp between 4lb 8oz and 12lb which were also moved to the Pit. We are looking into surveying both of these waters in the near future, to give us a long term plan of action for the well being of both, habitat and stocks.
The current venue record Tench caught by Jason Craven weighed 8lb 8oz.
Our junior members have also caught some lovely big Tench.
