Dave and Mark’s day of mixed emotions

Yesterday was a day of mixed emotion as I took my youngest to Heybridge Basin. We fished the first swim and in the first few minutes had a nice Rudd and lost (never saw it) a large fish.  At the end of the session we’d had two Tench of approx 3 and 4 lb, my biggest ever Perch of approx 1.5 lb plus loads of Rudd, Roach, Bream, Perch and Eels.

Now the downside… I lost a really big perch and a really big slab and when we went to bring the keepnet in there were only two really small fish left in it as there was a big hole at the bottom of it. I looked at Mark and we both fell about laughing!!!!

That said what a great afternoon and conditions were far from perfect as it was so windy.

Hopefully, armed with a sewn up net, Dave and Mark will be returning to do battle with the beasts of the Basin again soon.

Spring Tench

Robert Poulton wrote:  A lovely tench caught from one of the island swims at Slough House Farm on a 15ml tutti fruity boilie tipped with a small pop up.  Put up a lovely scrap.

We don’t receive many pictures of tench so I thought I’d put this one on the front page.

Dan’s PB Tench

Dan Thornett had a good days fishing at Slough House Farm landing six fish in a day session.  He caught two 19lb commons, a 20lb mirror, 2 mid doubles, a 5lb tench and his new pb tench of 6lb 3oz:
