Phil Gimbert showing prebaiting pays

Phil Gimbert and friend Nigel Baker were over for a  fishing holiday and stayed with Kevin and Jane Lyons at Melview Lodge in Longford, they decided to stay on the same venue and it paid off for them in the end. They managed some good Bream during their stay but the best was the last day when the fish started to move onto the feed, both Phil and Nigel shared a catch of just over 140lb with Bream to 5lb, Roach, Skimmers and a bonus Tench which was very good considering some of the weather conditions during their stay. Phil said they could have done with a few more days as the fish really started to feed well.

Nigel Baker with his share of the catch.

Fishing before the bad weather front moved in was very good in the Longford and the surrounding areas. There have been some great catches of Bream and Tench, not forgetting some cracking Roach, Rudd and Perch catches. The bad weather has affected some venues making them difficult to fish with the high winds and rain, However fish are still being caught so log on next week to see how the other anglers of Melview Lodge faired.
