Foul weather makes those indicators fly!

Dale Walters fished a 3 night session at Gingerbread Lake and, despite bad weather conditions, was rewarded with a single run on the last night. The fish turned out to be an immaculate 26lb 6oz linear mirror carp. It was a new personal best for Dale too.

Dave Hallybone decided on a change of venue targeting New Road Lake on a day of wind and heavy rain. Dave was trialing a new bait and soon found that the fish had a liking for it as throughout the day he went to land no fewer than eight carp. His best was a 21lb 6oz mirror and the remainder was all hard-fighting doubles.

Winston Pogmore has been enjoying some great action fishing at McGregor Lake and last week was no exception as le landed numerous carp to a season’s best of 13lb 4oz. Also, he caught a bonus tench weighing 6lb 8oz that was another season’s best for him from the venue. His tactics were to fish with pellets over a generous bed of Vitalin balled out at the start of his session.

A new secure car parking area has been created at Priory Farm, Harrold to which access can be gained through the gate which has been fitted with the club’s lock. A thank you to the small band of members who carried out the work.

Please note that the gate at Biggleswade RUFC is being kept closed during the day for members visiting the Broom fishery on the Ivel. However, the gate can be opened without a key. The small footbridge over the ditch alongside the river is in need of repair so please exercise caution when crossing it.
