Redek is king of the lake

Bradwell Lake can be far from the easiest of waters to fish but ‘Redek’ has been making it look like a piece of cake – bagging a string of specimens.

Thursday night through to Saturday he landed a string of bream to 12-8 – including the 11-7 pictured – plus several tench to 7-1 and the magnificent 2-3 roach, pictured, which eclipses the 2-1 netted by Pete Seidler a day or two earlier and also reported through Willards.

Word through the Tackle Hub is that Willen’s carp were on the move over the weekend with one rod getting at least five good doubles/early 20s, while over on Parc Farm 1, an angler reported through Great Linford Tackle that he’d had a 34lb common and ‘AJ’ reported through GoneFishin that he’d had his seventh 30 of the season from the complex.

An open organised by ‘Bucko’ on Tofts Farm, in memory of the late local matchman Terrie Tapp, saw Maver MK’s Ian Smith win with 107-9 – just 1-3 ahead of ‘Franco’. Carl Hully had 93-13.

Most struggled in Kingfisher’s match on Lodge but carper turned matchman Mircea Peredecu found bream and bagged 36-10. Robin Lett had 20-1 and Steve Chilton 10lb.

With just two rounds to go Ernie Sattler has a huge lead in DATS evening series. The latest round on Lodge went to Phil Bardell with 21-15 as Nigel Steel had 19lb and Mark Hughes 8-10.

MK Vets’ do on St James Lake in Brackley went to Austin Maddock with 13-8 as Barry Witteridge weighed 11lb and Dave McLennan 10-14.

Roach and dace were on feed in Newport’s latest Ouse open with Steve Drakulic getting 12-3, Myles Phillips 11-6 and Paul Chapman 9-4.

Old hand Mick Hefferon was in fine form on Linford’s Brickyard canal section, topping the club’s match with 9-10 followed by Pete Whatley 7-6 and Chris Spearman 5-11.

Olney’s Saturday evening Ouse sweep went to Pete Morely with 8-9 of silvers ahead of Steve Bull 4-14 and Graham Prince 2-5.

Calvert had an ‘exciting’ visit – not – to Hill Cottage Farm where Derek Bishop had four carp for 6-10...Bruce Harvey 0-13 and Dave Lewis 0-12.

Towcester lads worked up a sweat dragging swims at Astwell before the start of Sunday’s match and probably wished they hadn’t bothered.

Les Goodridge had 4-10, Tosh Saunders 3-12 and Darren Pannell 3-8.
