Lovely fish i was going to go today but it was cold over the weekend again. Ive got my favourite swim well raked out ready for them starting to feed... so im hoping to beat my pb this year which stands at just under 5lb Very Happy

Good luck pal. A good raking usually gets them going as i'm sure you're well aware. Do you tend to float fish or use a feeder just out of interest?

On the float, fished over depth and tighten rite down so the float sits at an angle so that the slightest knock registers... its only a small pond and im fishing about 15 foot out so i find this the best method... i bought a whip last year for getting lives i might even try that

my preffered method too, usually with a mussel bait.
I have been getting some sucess with the larger fish on the feeder though so i'm persevering with that for now although i don't find the method as rewarding

Yeah u can't beat watching the float slide away.. where i fish nobody really targets tincas so you can catch them with red maggots and brown crumb.. perfect example i went down last year about seven am and someone was fishing my swim. He had baited it with particles,, swimstim and was using halibut pellets on the hook. I had no other choice but to fish the next swim up and within ten minutes i had a 4 lber followed by a couple of smaller ones
Lol honestly the guy was gutted but its because there not pressured u can do this

Tench fishing's picking up nicely, but I thought I'd hooked the mother of all tench today, until I saw this!

Haha dont u hate it when that happens cracking little fish though, I hooked into a monster of a carp fishing maggots last year for the tench, well i say monster, prob upper 20's pos 30! Played it for bout 10-15min on my lighter 1.75 test rods with 8lb line I use for the tench, but they just wernt powerful enough, didnt have anywhere near enough control and had a hook pull in the end through just not being able to control it. ive disappointed myself this year though, no where near enough tenching done Crying or Very sad !

Not yet but the weather up here has only just changed for the better in the last 2 weeks. We had snow 2 weeks ago!!....no kidding.

Maybe now that the weather has warmed up I'll get some tincas on the bank real soon....hopefully!
