Catch Report weekending 18/9/17Challenging week for the guys with conditions changing quite dramatically. The nights are getting longer and the mornings considerably cooler, the carp are soon to detect the drop in water temperature and realize its time to feed up ready for the colder months ahead.Jason Hammond did real well to nick a couple of bites and bagged himself a lovely 32lb 2oz mirror along with an upper double common. He fished out to a central area at 24 wraps where he presented d-rigs accompanied with mainline cell.Adam Elmore had a great result landing five carp which consisted of 4 upper doubles and a 26lb mirror. He had them from various spots, but all his fish came to a stiff hinge and a generous amount of cell freebies.Geoff Smith decided to jump into a corner swim with a tempting looking treeline which was bound to hold a carp or two. He fished tight to some over hanging trees and was rewarded with a brace of commons the largest of the two going 25lb. He used 15mm P.P.M hookbaits and loose fed particle and boilie crumb over the top.Blaine Burgess had the one bite which seen a nice 28lb 2oz mirror grace the net. He fished to a choddy area at 22 wraps and presented a stiff hinge over the top with some cell freebies.Jason Kershaw was 24 hours into his session when the last catch report was posted and was on four fish to 33lb 8oz. He went on to catch two more to add top the tally, a cracking 26lb 10oz mirror being the largest of the two. He persisted with the same tactics using GS4 liver pop ups over a marginal spot which he would top up after each bite.Ricky Bradbury was also mid session last catch report and ended up netting himself another mirror this time slightly bigger at 24lb 6oz. Same tactics again using solid bags over a decent bed of bait.Mike Green and Glen Johnson were on the Cromwell pool which was proving difficult but were very happy to save a blank on there final morning with a brace of 17lb mirrors. Multi rigs and 10mm pineapple pop ups doing the business.Still waiting for on quite a few pics so please everyone remember to send them over so we can get them up throughout the week.
