Caught using Freshwater Shrimp.

Old Mills Big Paul’s at 55.04 fell to a Shrimp dumbell wafter to a margin spot fished over pellet and a mix of Shrimp, Active Nut boiles. Also a 34.04 Mirror fell to the same tactic.

Dylan fished a 4 night session on his local syndicate using a glugged 15mm SAS Squid bottom bait fished over a bed of about a kilo of a mixed SAS Squid, Freshwater Shrimp and Liver Specials boilies. Fishing the far margin with the bait presented on a helicopter rig with 1.5 oz lead. Had the run at first light .
So left my son in charge of the rods while I went to the toilet. On way back had a coffee with one of the other members. Next thing we hear daddy daddy I caught a big one. So of I run. When I arrive Tommy has the fish at the rod tip ready to be netted. So I do the honours and relise it a 30 plus common. Tommy first 30 and caught without me being present. He was made up an so was I. It was too big for him to lift. One very happy boy.
This was the first time using Trent Saits SAS Squid, it did me 15 fish that session with the common been the best of the bunch and been a new PB common. Claymarsh is know for been a harder water but since switching to Trent Baits my catch rates have shot through the roof. I did more fish first session using the bait then I had done in previous years so it really does speak for itself.
Chris Turley fished a 3 night session on a Midlands syndicate with this 31lb 14oz mirror as a result.
Chris used a few handfuls of our Active Nut boilies chopped with particles to the far margin on the patrol route. Using a Active Nut wafter on 9 inches of 20lbs thinking anglers think link with a size 4 stiff rig hook on a D and a 3.5oz lead helicopter style.
Mark fished a 3 day session at Langholme resulting in this 31lb 9oz Common. Mark’s baiting approach was spombing a mix of our 3kg Sweet pellet with Nut Syrup and 2kg of chopped Freshwater Shrimp boilies at 100 yards. Mark’s hook bait of choice was a Freshwater Shrimp cork ball pop up.
Caught using Freshwater Shrimp dumbells in bags of crushed shrimp and pellet fished at range to showing fish, this be the best at 32lb 2oz. 1 of a 10 fish hit in 24 hours from Bernershall fisheries in Essex.
20mm Liver Shellfish boilie straight out the bag.
New lake record, I think it’s a new south west record. I was fishing a 48 hour session on my local syndicate in North Devon called Riverton. Caught from the Shadows fishing a clear spot in the weed.
James fished over a kilo of our Freshwater Shrimp boilies used in conjunction with mixed particles with a Freshwater Shrimp corkball pop up as the hookbait of choice. The result was this 28lb 10oz beauty on his Midland Syndicate 36 hour session.
