Alders Lake - Thatcham
1745 - 2215
Overcast, quite breezy at times and the AT actually went up a degree from 15-16ºC
1 Bream; 4lb 14oz. 1 Tench - c1lb. 2 Perch - both 'half decent' around 8-10oz. 3 Rudd.
Bites a-plenty for the first couple of hours (though I think a lot of them were rudd attacking the shot) - went very quiet as it got dark - exact opposite to what usually happens. Only bite after 2000 was the bream - which was very much a last cast fish - and meant I had a very slimy net to put in the car! Surprised at the size of the perch - though I shouldn't be with all the prey fish available - might be a worthy target species from here in a year or two....
