Pike season 2016-17 catch report
Hi my name is Matthew Gannon I'm a plumber from Redditch and I thought I would inform you of an excellent season fishing for predators on the BAA rivers. I've been fishing mostly the Pensham stretch and Barton and have have fantastic results, I've caught a good number of double figure pike including a 22lb 8oz fish from Pensham. I have also had some good fishing at Barton the biggest being 13lb and a number of zander also. Kind Regards
Hi. I did a bailiff visit to Fladbury today just as member Martin Branch was landing this hard fighting 5lb Avon barbel. Although there was a lot of water on and it was pulling through, this was the 3rd one Martin had hooked although he had lost one. I have also attached a picture of his very simple rig using big cubes of curry flavoured luncheon meat anchored down with a 4 oz lead. Colin Townsend.
More big Uckinghall Z's
Me and my friend Adam fished Uckinghall Thursday 2nd March and caught these two cracking zander of 12lb 8oz and 11lb 7oz we were over the moon! Tom-wiggie Folkes.
After the all the hard work on the Fisheries working party at Backstone yesterday myself and Spud decided to have a relaxing day at Uckinghall. Spud was just nodding off when his alarm screamed off and he hit into this hard fighting 10lb 8oz zander. She was taken on a small roach dead bait, ledgered hard on the bottom. Colin Townsend
Christmas day catch
With no family commitments this year I took advantage of the unseasonably mild weather and went to Eardington Brook. Finished the session with fourteen barbel! Brilliant! Chris
Christmas Eve Severn treat
A Christmas Eve session on the middle spent chasing chub whilst the barbel were sleeping. Two chevins graced my net, a 4.9, then a new PB of 5.8 shortly afterwards, both on cheesepaste. Happy days. Johnny Care
