Change in weather but no change in luck for Cambs anglers

Even though the weather took a turn for the worse and plunged us back into winter like conditions it wasn’t enough to stop anglers getting out and catching a few fish.

Iain Cockcroft had his first adventure to a new syndicate and was rewarded with a lovely Common Carp, a solid PVA bag with a Manilla pop up hook bait doing the business.

Andy Mendy had a great trip to his syndicate in Earith landing a Linear of 31lb 8oz and a fat Mirror of 31lb 4oz. Using Sticky Baits Signature Squid pop ups over Krill crumb and particle worked extremely well.

Kev McLean had a busy day session on a club lake with Stickybaits Krill over a scattering of boilies helping him to six carp to around 20lb.

St Ives Tackle Shop owner Mickey Bartlett said: "Hopefully with Easter coming up we will see even more happy anglers showing their catches off in the warmer weather."
