Recent Highlights

13th May 2019

Tom Loraine has had an incredibly productive spell of angling over the late winter and early spring and he has shared some of the highlights with us recently.

‘After a very successful winter I decided to keep the catch reports to a minimum due to various reasons, the main one being the most obvious! 

I’ve had a great late winter into spring on the TA terminal, catching over 50 carp during this period. Those 35lb Tungskin hinges and TAOE Hooks proving too much for these fairly pressured carp in this intimate, but fairly deep lake.

I kept the bait (Manilla 12mm and 16mm combined with bloodworm pellets) going in over two areas for 3/4 months and consistently took fish off of both spots during this time, moving between the areas depending on the weather, pressure and sun hours during the day. 

Carp between 20lb – 37lb with most being in the 20lb bracket and a great bit of sport it was. The big girl didn’t show up, so I’ll have to wait for her capture this spring and hopefully before spawning!’

Absolutely mega angling Tom, we look forward to seeing you with your big target in the not too distant future!
