A few fish have started to show on a couple of the rivers; sadly not the normally good end of season river, Ten Mile Bank, but the Relief Channel.
A few anglers have been on the bank during the last week.
Relief Channel: During the last week a few tench to 6lb have been showing to the tip anglers, also the bream to 7lb have started to make an appearance for the tip anglers.
Many bream anglers are hoping that the big shoal move in like they did at the back end of last season.
Cut Off Channel: Tench to 6lb 4oz were reported during the early part of the week, tip anglers again reaping the rewards.
Springside: A quieter week than of late but the carp to 9lb have been showing on the method feeder whilst offering either a white or yellow bait.
Bear Lake: Odd carp to 14lb have started to show more frequently than the last few weeks, but more anglers have started to show on the banks as the milder weather moves in.
Method feeder has again been the more preferred method when offering maggot hookbaits.
Shepherd’s Lake: A carp to 18lb 1 oz has been recorded.
Chub to 4lb have once again been the more dominant feeders, showing over the bream baits that have been offered. Red maggot has been the more productive bait used.
Tottenhill: A carp to 19lb 6oz has been reported, also another carp to 17lb was recorded during the same session during the last week.
Carp tactics have been finding the better fish.
It is with regret to announce the passing of former KLAA bailiff and angler Peter Thomas.
KLAA would like to pass on their condolences to the family during this sad time.
Peter’s funeral is to be held at Mintlyn Crematorium on Wednesday, March 15 at 3.15pm.
Proud 18 year-old Elliot Stanley of Lynn collects his trophy for finishing 4th in the BirelART Senior Lights Kart Championship.
Elliot told the Lynn News: “To finish fourth is a great achievement in this particular class of racing.
“Unlike many other classes of kart racing the engine, gears and chassis are the same for everyone, so results are really down to the driver. Often the top 15 drivers are within tenths of a second apart during qualifying, with exciting close racing.
“Another added bonus is that this championship is the least expensive to race in. I would encourage anyone interested in kart racing to look at the BirelART web site and come along and join the fun.”
