Fraser Hayden visited another BHAA controlled stretch of the Upper Ouse above Bedford in search of big perch that were known to be present. He used a block end feeder filled with maggots and chopped worm with lobworms on a size 8 hook. Only one bite registered on his rod top during a brief four-hour session, but this resulted in him catching a pristine 5lb 6oz chub.
Bailiffs have caught two new members who were persistently coming on to the lakes before the approved time for entry and, as a result, the Board has decided to suspend their membership until the end of March. Members are reminded that the published entry and exit times must be strictly adhered to if they wish to avoid a similar fate or worse.
Please note that BHAA has exhausted its supply of club membership books for the season ended 15th June 2020 so persons wishing to join the Association will have to wait until the new season’s books become available circa April or Early May.
