Sashsquash at 52lb4oz, Elliott used a Hinged Stiff with a supple boom, and a Sticky Baits Pineapple & N-Butyric Pop Up, and it was cast over to the left hand margin, he baited up the spot with 10 Spombs of crumbed and chopped boilies.
The Third week of march brought snow and very cold temperatures with north easterly winds, but it didn’t stop Chris Jackson from catching a nice 22lb mirror called Mac’s Pretty one which he had from Big girl, this came on a hinge stiff rig with a white pop up as his hook bait. He found a nice clear hard area on the far margin where he baited up with a kilo of crumbed boilies.
The weather improved on the fourth week of March and the temperature went up to 14 degrees in the day and a nice 8 degrees at night with a westerly wind which helped Joe Atkinson who was fishing in Oblivion, it wasn’t long before he was into his first fish of the trip a nice 22lb mirror Called Cleavage. The next morning, he was in again this time with a 29lb9oz mirror called Pebbles. He went onto have a 34lb11oz mirror called short Dorsal and the biggest of the Trip Foreign Legion which went 36lb4oz, a simple multi rig with a sticky baits signature pop up which was fished at 23.5 wraps. Joe was baiting up after every fish with 2 kilos of whole and chopped Sticky Baits Krill boilies which were soaked in pure krill and mannila liquid. He also landed a couple of doubles on zigs which were fished straight out in front at 70 yards.
Steve Bartlett went into Pole Position, he decided to put out all three rods on zigs. 18ft 20ft and 22ft it wasn’t long before he was into his first carp of the trip, a nice 23lb mirror called Indian spice, this came on his 18ft zig which was soaked in the new Outrageous Orange Goo,
Michael Lever was set up in Alcatraz, it wasn’t long before he was off the mark, with a cracking 35lb8oz Mirror known as “Cookies & Cream”. Michael also landed a 33lb Mirror in quick succession. Both the fish fell to Zigs with black foam which had been soaked in the new Outrageous Orange Goo, which were presented at 20ft.
Luke Cornelius went into Co’s Point, he put all three rods straight out at 28 wraps and baited the area with a few kilos of boilies, after no action he decided to change to zigs, as a few fish were coming out on them, it didn’t take long before one of his rods ripped off, after a hectic fight playing a carp on a 20ft zig he lands a nice 21lb8oz mirror known as ‘Monster’. On the last evening Luke decided to cast out a single hook bait, a Salty squid wafter which had been soaking in some Korda Squid Goo, the next morning just as he was packing up, the right hand rod went off, after a short battle a cracking mirror went into the net. It turned out to be an unkown fish so Luke got the chance to name it, he decided to call it ‘Little b’ and it went 35lb8oz.
Well that’s it for March, not a bad month to be fair as the weather has been so bad for most of it with Rain and rain and even more rain. We so need some warm sunny and dry days to warm the lake up and dry the saturated ground out.
