Tottenhill has hardly been visited by an angler all week; Ten Mile very quiet too, with anglers and fish not showing consistently.
Relief Channel is still the predators’ favourite with odd pike to 10lb and plenty of jacks showing on lures and shads. Middle Level at Three Holes has also been showing plenty of jacks when targeted on lures and shads.
Ten Mile Bank: Odd roach and skimmers showing on the tip during midweek sessions but again heavy winds and rain disrupted any chance of anglers showing on the bank over the weekend.
Cut Off Channel: Two tench have been reported by an angler, one just nudging the 6lb mark and the other one was 6lb 5oz.
Middle Level is very quiet with the only catch reported at Three Holes.
Springside: A mixture of carp showing on the waggler and tip when offering maggot on the hook, roach and rudd also showing on the whip and pole when targeted with caster, pinkie and maggot.
Shepherd’s Port, Bear Lake has been very quiet,
Shepherd’s Port: No carp reported this week, but bream have been showing on the tip, when using conventional bream-style tactics or a maggot feeder. Maggot has been the more rewarding bait.
