2014 - April 6th GAC Ashpole spinney

Decided to fish the Ashpole Spinney after hearing good reports from the FACEBOOK page of the club's information centre. The weather was expected to be a little rain but a continuation or warm weather was expected.

 Car ready for the off.

 Packed and ready for its 14 minute journey to the fishing of excellence

Just need to negotiate the opening !

Office for the day was peg 10 which i have used before back in the 90s when i won twice of it.

 Great start to the island with a full linear carp after 5 minutes

 Another to follow minutes later

 another specimen hard fighter came to the net

They kept coming and i had 8 in the first 90 minutes

First Tench of the day !

 Lost a few aircraft carriers  but the 2-5lb fish kept coming

Best Tench of the day about 2.5lb

Estimated about 13-14lb of Tench and about 10lb of Rudd/roach/Perch plus 9 Carp for about 27lb gave  me a great 50 lb plus weight  , maybe more ?

Think he liked the ground bait and pellets …… caught everything on corn and maggot with ground bait  and dead maggot feed .
