The river season will soon be coming to an end in a few weeks so many anglers are trying to squeeze as much fishing in as possible.

After a difficult January, Simon Irvine managed to land a 2lb 8oz Perch from the Fens. A couple of hours in the morning was all that was needed using Strike King Rubber worms fished Texas style.

Neil Owczarkowski has continued to make the most of early morning sessions for Pike, landing another double on dead baits and a few smaller jacks on small jigs.

Mike Bartlett had a windy day out in the Fens landing several Pike to just over 10lb during a mid-week session using small Roach and Lamprey dead baits.

Adam and Mickey Bartlett have also been out every week with no decent fish landed yet but getting plenty of action from smaller Pike to low doubles.

All round it’s been a difficult winter for fishing but there is still time to get out there and try your luck!
