Mega bream have been on the munch in Dovecote Lake – 'annoying' anglers trying to catch carp.
Fishing way, way out, visiting rod Scott Rowson couldn't get away from them: and in 48 hours bagged an incredible run of 13 thick-backed doubles from 12-8 to 17-1...AND managed three carp to 36-15!
But Scott's super-bream were tiddlers compared to the one Terry Atkins – also reporting through GoneFishin – banked at a new lake record of 20-4 but which, sadly, he didn't photograph...
WHEN Shaun Taylor set out to give a pal pointers on chub fishing MKAA's Ouse, it turned out to be a real masterclass as he bagged a 6-6 and lost an even larger one.
THE biggest pike from Black Horse Lake this weekend, as reported through Waters Edge, was a 23...which had snatched a carp angler's chod rig!
TYRONE Calderlay had a 16lb carp from Tear Drops.
OLNEY's Dave Partridge had Ouse perch of 2-7, 1-12 and 1-6 on worm, Saturday.
THREE pegs in a row did the business on New Inn canal, Sunday, filling the frame in MKAA's individual winter league third round. Lee Jones had 8-15, Bob Gale 7-9 and Paul Chapman 4-2. Paul Abbott leads with 46 points ahead of Alan Ford and Steve Wright both on 44.
NEWPORT son and father Dave and Roger Tebbutt made second and third in a 51 peg Wellingborough league round (canal at Foxton) with 8-8-10 and 8-3-3.
OSPREY's Decoy Lake do fell to Charlie Lawrence on 67lb. Stuart Richards had 43lb and Ashley Priestly 34lb.
BEFORE his swim went stone-dead, Linford's Mick Hefferon had 10-10 of skimmers in the first 40 minutes of MK Vets' 23 peg midweeker on Mill Road cut. Packing up with an hour to go he was still a runaway winner as next up was Dave McLlennan with 2-14 ahead of Nigel Moore on 2-8.
SUNDAY's Nene-Towcester sweep on the long pound – Stoke Bruerne canal – saw Bob Eales with 10-4 followed by Bas Eaton 3-6 and Mick Goodridge 2-14.
CALVERT's Itters Pit do went to Les Smith, 2-14, as Austin Maddock had 0-15 and John Weatherall one ounce.
