Junior Spring League: Round 5

Round 5 took place on Sunday 18th of May on a bright sunny day. A tree blossom meant the whole lake was covered in fluff making presentation difficult.

Juniors Report: Round 3

Sunday 27th April saw the third round of the Lymm AC Juniors Spring Series taking place at New Pool, due to Easter holidays this was changed from the week earlier as scheduled. An overcast and unsettled day greated us, the water level had dropped an inch or so and this brought with it a slightly clearer water colour which didn’t offer the best fishing conditions. Due to the date change we also shared the water with club anglers so pegs were limited and high angling presure but it give the Juniors a chance to show the adults a thing or two.

Connor Higham joined us for the first time this series and as peged on the Academy pegs, normally these are stuffed full of roach and skimmers but has in the past produced some decent fish including some decent carp. Feeding small amounts of maggots over his rig it started to produce some small roach.

Match winner Sarah Taylor with 9lb 3oz of carp and roach.

Viking Baits

The session began on Sunday evening after work, I made my way to Chester Specimen Pool before dark fully expecting a fishless night but to be on the water stalking at first light. The night came and went as anticipated and my idea of getting up at first light was shelved as I slept in until mid morning. With the warm sun rising I made several circuits of the lake dropping in a handful of bait here and there, watching for signs of the elusive carp.

On what must have been my fourth or fifth lap I spotted faint shadows amongst muddied water, a sure sign of feeding fish. Taking a chance, I lowered in my rig which was far more complicated than i’m used to. Anti-tangle, shrink tubed, blow back, snowman thingy connected to a Viking Baits Tigernut boilie and matching pop-up. A bit more technical than my…

Wrinehill produces it’s first ‘Thirty’!

Lymm AC member, Wayne Taylor visited Wrinehill Pool recently for a spot of carp angling. Wayne arrived at the water in the morning and soon spotted some fish moving at short range. In double-quick time, he was settled in to a peg nearest to where he had seen the fish and presented a couple of baits, combined with pva bags, at about 15 yards range.

Within an hour, Wayne received a take and moments later, landed a common of 17lb. After that, things went a little quiet, however, in the afternoon, the wind swung direction straight into Wayne’s peg. At about 6pm, Wayne had another take to one of his rods and, after a while, he was sliding the net under a considerably larger mirror carp! Once it was hoisted up on the scales, and witnessed by a patrolling bailiff, Wayne recorded it’s weight at 30lb 10z, a superb creature and Wrinehills first 30lb carp!
