The last seven days has provided some good sport for the most hardened and brave anglers.

Again the weather conditions have been difficult to forecast with minus temperatures showing over the weekend.

Consistent rainfall and strong gusty winds have all been present in the past week, but a few anglers have been on the banks reaping some rewards.

Ten Mile Bank: A catch of bream for 75lb has been reported from an angler fishing the tip. A variety of hook baits was used to accomplish this good catch.

Roach, bream and skimmers were all reported on mixed bags caught between Modney Bridge and the Chapel. Tip again proves to be the most rewarding method.

Cut Off Channel: Lynn bailiff Ernie Smart braved the cold on Saturday and despite losing a couple of tench, Ernie’s persistence paid off for a very enjoyable session by landing four tench between 5lb 7oz and 6lb 6oz plus a bonus bream of 8lb 2oz. Another angler also managed to land four tench at the Fordham end of the Cut Off.

Jacks have been recorded from the Cut Off at Stoke Ferry, all caught on ledgered dead baits.

Shepherd’s Port, Bear Lake: Despite the weather the carp have been showing well. Carp tactics when presenting small boillies and the method feeder presenting maggot on the hook has seen carp show between 7-12lb during a steady week.

Shepherd’s Lake: Carp to 12lb also showing in this lake. Despite a no show from the silvers carp have been seeking out the baits that have been offered. Carp style tactics have featured strongly in catches reported.

Tottenhill: Carp ranging from 8lb-13lb have been reported from pole anglers when presenting corn as a hook bait. KLAA match secretary Ian Hoddy has again been enjoying some good sport with a catch of seven bream to nearly 5lb and a couple of carp.

Roach and skimmers have also showed when targeted.

Anglers Corner will be moving from their current location into new premises at Unit 8, Horsleys Field on Tuesday (next to new fire station). The shop will host free parking for all its customers.
