Back to the pit with Bream in mind!!

With Friday being the start of my half term I had decided to get over to the pit early doors and fish for the Bream and tench. Arriving very early I spombed some participles onto a patch about 40 yards out, and quickly set up my rods both onto this area.

I was convinced that "the mistress" was going to give me a spanking this time, so sat back and prepared to take my beating!!!! This was until I saw a bream roll over the baited area, followed by a couple of beeps on my left rod....go on take it!!!! It did!. After a bit of rod dancing the fish was in the net, incidentally just as a pair of polish anglers arrived...after I told them last week that there was nothing in the lake I felt a bit embarrassed! On the scales she went 8lb 12oz.

First bream of the morning.

About 2o mins passed before the alarm screamed again, waking up all residents in the local area. This time the fish swan directly towards the bank, before fighting very hard in the marginal clear water. Slipping the net under another bream , which looked very similar to the last one....peas in a pod in fact, scaling 8lb 10oz!

Here very simliar sister!

A long quiet spell followed with only a couple a beeps indicating moving fish. I did have some issues with my right hand alarm, missing two bites due to the alarm not sounding but hearing the baitrunner which with bream was seemingly to late. This drove me crazy as when checked all appeared fine, perhaps they need a service back at Gardner!

After the long quiet spell came 5 mins off manic action, with firstly my left rod running, and landing a beautiful 9lb bream. Just 2oz of my PB weight!!!! Then whilst re baiting this rig the right hand rod ripped of with a slightly smaller on of 7lb 10oz.

Beautiful 9lb bream

Nearly two tone!

The shoal had definitely been over the baited area. Unfortunately as quickly as they came they disappeared, resulting in another slow spell. This was until once again my left rod howled out its shrilling scream. This bite was not a bream, but after a spirited fight a nice tench of 5lb 11oz was landed, quickly photographed and returned.

Nice belly

Things had definitely slowed down towards mid morning. Though I did managed to sneak two more tench the first being slightly larger at 6lb 0oz and the second coming as I was packing away my tackle to head back home. A smaller fish scaling 4lb 10oz

Pretty tinca

Last knockings!

I was very pleased with this session as in quite difficult conditions in a new peg I had managed to bank 7 fish again. Once again some other anglers did not far as well. I await my spanking!!!!


  1. Very nice Andy,looked like a very productive day for the old slabs.

  2. You seem to just fall into the right pegs every time mate! She's obviously got a soft spot for you, but women are contrary creatures - one little word out of place...or unsaid... and you'll get that spanking.

  3. Well done Andy! What a good result. Like Jeff said, be careful, be very careful. Spanking on the horizon?

  4. That peg has been cruel to me of late, but on the right day at the right time you never know what it might throw up, top rodding mate!

  5. Great session very well done.

  6. If the Trx Suspension Online package is all rugged and out of shape, regardless of how much of a treasure the inside is, no one will be interested.
    Some of these Cheap Trx will come with the product for free but if high quality package has to be done like in wholesale, the buyer has to compensate for the extra packaging.
    It seems that among the consistently hottest sellers from this TRX suspension trainer line is the Highrise.
    High quality packaging of TRX For Sale, watches, earrings and other help protect them from getting dust or moisture from the environment.
    When people see a buyer carrying a bag with the TRX Suspension Training Sale of the company, they will definitely get attracted and pulled towards with an urge to get the same.
    trx exercises also enhances flexibility in transport.
    If the Trx Workouts has a good shape, it will be much manageable to transport and distribute.
    This is highly paid much to details because the cheap trx company has stores all over the world and a slight mistake can end up destroying the whole collection.
    In today's world, nothing without a trx for sale package has the ability to sell including an eraser.
    Simple though very important thing to consider is that the TRX Workouts Sale package is not only aimed at preserving, but to get the attention of the target market.
