Getting down to a nice spot on the chelmer with a quiver tip and worms and pellets for chub and a light lure rod for perch! First few casts with the quiver tip had it bent double with some really nice chub biggest being near 3lb! Really hard fighting fish in the weir pool then had another 3 perch on the tip all wing around a pound!
Now to the lures,
Switching onto my Daiwa 7-25g rod paired with my Shimano fx xt reel,
Onto the lures! The ever faithful FFS lures have done me a good job over the perch season this time on a 3G cheb I had a micro frog in pukka perch colour a few casts about the section I was on but then I decided to cast into the flow of the weir and hopping in across the bottom and what a hit felt like a absolute rocket a good few minutes and a pike tried coming for the beast I had and I extended my net to it’s full length and scooped it out the water as fast as I could!
And wasn’t I happy 2lbs of striped beast which has officially beaten my chelmsford PB of 1lb 3oz!
Casting back in and I was onto another fish of a similar size which I was absolutely chuffed about in the net he went, the next few casts graced another 6 perch to my net but nothing big.
The quiver tip went off again with the nice surprise of a small trout probably only a pound then after that 2 mor little chublets
All In all it was a amazing session and the next few lure sessions are gunna be a bing the for me! And also getting back to the tench soon!
To all of you that are out tight lines!
