Lymm Angling Club: Members soak up the sunshine
IT has been another successful week for members, with many taking advantage of the sun and getting some hours on the banks.
Ashley Davidson was at Lymmvale targeting the tench, when a fully scaled mirror carp decided to take his bait.
It tipped the scales around to 15lbs 14ozs 0drs and to finish off the short session Ashley also had two tench to 3-8-0.
Warrington-based Jason McBreen was planning his first trip this year and settled on Serpentine Pool.
He was soon into the fish and had a new personal best of 23-7-0, followed by three mirror carp.
Not a bad first session for Jason, who also reported losing a certain 20 at the net.
Mike Quinn had another short session on Belmont Pool mid-week and fished Oak peg taking a couple of carp to 15-0-0.
Mike reported plenty of fish showing in the out-of-bounds area, which is a sure sign that they’ll soon be spawning.
Later in the week Mike spent 24 hours on Lymmvale and enjoyed catching a total of three mirrors to 16-0-0 followed by a tench of around 5-0-0, a personal best.
Mike Whewell had a couple of hours in on Serpentine mid-week and was rewarded with a hard-fighting ghost carp and a mirror.
The father and son duo Mike then returned to Serpentine Pool a few days later and had three carp in total, including a best for young Ben, a pristine looking common at 18-0-0.
Paul Critchley paid a visit to Milton Brook looking for a big carp with fakes baits and particles.
The first few hours proved un-productive so after a chat to the Bailiff he moved to another swim and was soon in luck.
The first was a common at 7-12-0, followed by a mirror weighing 12-12-0.
Paul was pleased with his day’s efforts and had rang the changes on hook bait and hook length, proving to himself that it isn’t always about boilies.
Shakerley Mere is popular with members and Alex Dean had a great result on this challenging water, taking a cracking looking mirror of 24-0-0 caught on a bottom bait fished at range.
Day tickets for Shakerley Mere can be bought from the website and although it is our only day ticket water it can provide some hectic action for non-members.
Finally, Darren Grub is the first member to enter the Catch of the Month competition with a stunning ghost caught from Serpentine Pool and weighing an impressive 15-10-0.
Darren’s capture will be entered into the first monthly competition for June and he stands to win £50 of mixed bait and a £20 voucher for Bailey’s Tackle and Bait.
