Decided to fish Ashpole again after the previous weeks weed clearance exercise took place on the Monday which yielded immediate rewards with people catching fish from the Monday evening and into the Tuesday when Brian and Richard reaped the rewards with nets full of Tench and Carp.
Decided to get there early expecting a flood of anglers but to my surprise the lake only had one angler but several arrived a few hours later . Chose peg 26 which is a peg i have never fished before but i have fished the majority of the pool pegs before and recently had been consistently fishing pegs 9 and 10 so a change was needed. The peg had a great aspect with the island trees giving a great background to my floats sitting in the water.
Peg 26 …… what a picture !
My office awaits !
10 mins and a few perch and Rudd the form was broken with this 3lb pounder on double maggot on a 4 foot slow sinking rig
Another followed after a splattering of Tenchlettes , about 2.5 LB
More Tench followed then a Torpedo sped aways and gave my SENSAS elastic a good test , it passed the test and this 5lb bruiser was conquered.
End of a 8 hour session in the sun and first to weigh was my small fish net or Rudd / Roach / Perch and 14 Tenchlettes …….for about 7LB ish ?
My Last carp of the day was this exorcist missile that tore of at MACH II , controlled it then had the beast in my net ……nice 7 LB pounder
Then the TENCH net with 81 (- the 14 in the first net ) . For a 2 hour spell it was non stop action as the Tench got the taste for the meat and sometimes a bunch of reds on a 16's
Fed 1 kilo of ground bait with 0.5pt of dead maggots and tin of hemp , 2 tins of corn , 0.25 bag of micros and mashed meat …….ran out of feed in the end!!
Caught fish up to 3 LB , quite few 2.5 , 2.0 LB and many at 1.5 LB and the rest were 1 LB
small net 7LB (+14 Tenchlettes)
6 X Carp = 22 LB
67 Tench = 75LB
