Netted this splendid Pike, weighing in at 13lb 14oz, on Jurassic; on our final Piking session of
the season with Dave, Richard and Razvan. It was caught on a float ledgered smelt attached to a single circle
Caught the above Tench on Smiggies, it weighed 5lb 1oz and was witnessed by David,
Richard Gamble, David Burton, plus Dimitar Dimitov who's fishing with us on a guest ticket.
I had a total of four cracking Tench with the smallest being 3lb 8oz. Then I had
one that was 4lb on the nose. Followed by another at 4lb 3oz and the biggest at 5lb 1oz
which was a new P.B. for me... Giving me a total weight of 19lb 11oz with the for Silvers I
also had. The biggest coming in at 1lb 8oz. All the fish fell to the feeder with sweetcorn or meat as
the hookbait. Unfortunately the only one bugged by the crays was Dimitar, the guest, who had a total of three
big ones, one heavily laden with eggs. All were promptly dispatched.

4oz, six fish made up of Silvers and Bream. Its nice to see the new Bream showing and in good
