The last seven days have seen anglers drawn to the still waters with good results.

The rivers have still been very patchy, but afternoon sessions on Ten Mile Bank have proved more successful than early morning visits.

Bream to 6lb 8oz, skimmers to 2lb and roach have all shown in sessions between Modney Bridge and the Chapel during the late afternoon and early evening. Tip has again been rewarding in locating the fish. Top baits this week have included worm, caster and maggot, but changing baits has helped to keep the fish feeding.

Pike to 16lb have been recorded, along with a few jacks to 4lb. Both lures and dead baits have been used to attract the pike.

Cut Off Channel: Tench have again showed during recent visits, a catch of four tench to 18lb has been reported, all caught on the tip.

Springside: Tench have showed on the pole line to 5lb. When presenting a double maggot bait, carp to 17lb have also been reported when using a ledger presenting corn as a hook bait.

Bear Lake: Hungry carp to 10lb have shown throughout the week, method and cage feeder both rewarding when presenting maggot as a hook bait.

Shepherd’s Lake: Bream to 6lb showing on the tip. Both cage and method feeders have been used to attract the bream into feeding. Maggot has again been very rewarding, chub have also been showing on this method.

Tottenhill: Bream to 4lb showing on the pole line at 11 metres. Waggler has also been used to find the bream, carp to 9lb have also shown when using maggot and corn as a hook bait on the method/ pellet feeder. Roach have shown well when fished for.

KLAA books will be available from local tackle shops from March 17. Could all members note the new rule of unhooking mats to be used on all KLAA still waters comes into force from April 1.
