It has been another busy couple of weeks on the fishing front with plenty of decent catches.
Mickey Bartlett ventured over to the Fen Drains and by float fishing Bluey dead baits, he managed to land three Pike up to 12lb 4oz in an afternoon session.
Paul Marriot and Simon Irvine have also been visiting the Fen drains managing to land quite a few small Zander between them by fishing short evening sessions.
On the Carp fishing front Phil Lee has had another blinding session, landing nine in 48 hours with the biggest going over 37lb. He was fishing at 115 yards range and a depth of over 20 feet.
More success has fallen to Valius Paskonis’s rods again as he managed to land several Carp over 20lb while fishing his local syndicate at Earith Carp Lakes.
