Sailing lake has been of fire this week with both the predators and Bream catches being fantastic. Les Lerigo of Coventry has had the run of the Zander population with no less than 3 Zander over the magical 11lb barrier. Les used small dead Roach to tempt Zed’s of 12lb, 12lb 3oz and 12lb 8oz and 2 around 3 smaller fish to of 8lb – 9lb. Les fished 3 separate late afternoon sessions and chose to fish into the bays on the islands.
Carl Wilson of Nottingham also had a couple of big Zeds with fish of 10lb 12oz and a new personal best 12lb 9oz specimen, Carl fished close to a snag on the corner of the green bank bay using kebab rigs and chunks of herring.
Pike anglers have also been fairing very well with multiple catches of pike between 5lb and 19lb. Roy Stanton of Newark fished legered deadbaits from the dam end to take 4 pike of 12lb, 12lb 3oz, 13lb and a week’s best 19lb 2oz.
Lure anglers have been catching up to 10 fish in a session by keeping mobile and hitting the many bays around both the sailing lake and boys pit.

William Stokes of Syton fished the waggler to take 8 Tench and a bonus 8lb Carp, William used corn over hemp and pellet.
