A Typical Tench Day on Oak Pond

As is usual with Tench fishing the alarm went off at an unearthly hour to get lines in at first light.(ish)

With mist rolling over the lake we set up in “Big Bay” and “Gate” swims. Big Bay had been the killer Tench swim for the past 3 weeks but had started to slow down a bit so I plumped for the little fished Gate swim.

Sure enough I was the first to put a fish on the bank with a mint 4lb female. It just got better from there with a 3 1/2lb and a 5lb before Damion landed a beautiful 5 1/2Lb female. After another two Tench out of gate, Damion waded in with a 6 1/2 monster.

Not to be out done I landed a new PB at 6lb and the just as we were about thinking of packing up my left rod screamed off and after some serious hit and hold fishing to keep it out of the trees on one side of the swim and lilies on the other I banked another PB at 6 3/4 LB.

    Sounds like you guys had a great days fishing! I have been looking through your gallery. It looks like you have some really nice looking fish in your ponds. I would love to come down and fish them some time.
