Kevin Lyons from Melview Lodge reports on some super tench fishing for his clients in the Longford area.

Gilbert with a great catch of tench at Melview Lodge

Gilbert and Belinda who we reported on last week finished their second week the same as they started the first, Kevin said they were also catching Bream, Hybrids and Roach but were only interested in the Tench. Fishing prebaited swims and only prebaiting with corn, casters, pellets and maggots they produced some cracking Tench to 6 lb.

Fishing in and around the Longford area has been good at certain venues and patchy at others, prebaited Bream pegs have been slow to produce however other places have been fishing well for Tench, Bream, Skimmers, Hybrids and Roach. I think we are due for another change in the weather next week so we will see how other anglers at Melview Lodge get and we will let you know next week.
