Blunt's Mere 15th September 2010

Today Trev & Tim arranged a session at Blunt's before the cold weather sets in, it proved to live up to expectations & Tim had the time of his life Bagging up Big time with so many big carp to 13lb & some bonus Tench, It was obvious to Trev that Tim has perfected the method to dominate this Lake & he was justifiable rewarded. Trev had Five Carp to 12lb.....& a good time was had negotiating the overhanging Trees,,, Ha Ha Ha just watch the expert Trev !

The River Stour Sudbury

Friday 6th August 2010

After a previously cancelled trip Tim & Trev Finally got out on the river aboard Piker 1 for a bit of mixed Summer fishing, species targeted were Perch, Roach, Bream, & of course their favorite Pike,,, All were boated although the pike were small they made good sport on spinners, Tim & Trev had no less than 7 Pike on spinners & had several that shed the lures when hooked, Tim caught his first Perch on a spinner & a nice day was enjoyed,,  the rain kept off all but a light shower,,, 5 of the Pike were caught trolling from the boat which was a new experience & method for Tim & Trev,,, May we take this opportunity to wish Dave a speedy recovery from his recent accident & Trev looks forward to their next outing soon,,,,,,

Friday 9th July 2010

This was the first summer fishing Trip that Trev & Dave had been on this Season & it turned out a cracker ,,

The weather was very hot although some shade could be found under the trees, The fishing was Fantastic what with Dave Bagging up big time with the Perch & Catching a Monster late in the day.

Trev had a Couple of nice Bream as well as Perch, Scimmers & big Rudd on hooking a small perch Trev had it taken by a Pike.

As the River was so Clear Trev had a go at taking a couple of underwater Pics which have been included in this update although forgive the Quality as they were taken with Trev's Mobile Phone,,,

Cants Mere 23rd January 2008

Trev Decided to take a trip over Cant's to get the tight line feeling back after a couple of blanks Piking in recent weeks, he was not disapointed armed with one float rod & a loaf of bread he fished from 9-30am till 3-45pm & bagged up with too many carp to count, as he was fishing alone the few photo's published here were taken using his mobile phone Tripod & timer, this place is really the place to be when the fishing gets hard elsewhere....

Cant's Mere 8th May 2007

We arrived at the water at 6-30am & fished until 6-30pm when we ached so much from catching loads of double figure carp, the wind was increasing as the day progressed and turned to gale force by the afternoon. This was truly the most productive session on Cant's that we can remember,,  largest carp weighed 14lbs & we had several fish between 12lbs - 13lbs baits varied from Bread to Boilies,, we are now looking forward to Blitzing Blunts Mere very soon where we both hope to break the 20lb barrier .. roll on summer !

Seabrook's Reservoir 23rd March

Trev was joined by an unknown Reggae performer to fish for carp on a cold damp day,, after a long period of inactivity Trev demanded a bite and sure enough Dave landed his only fish of the day,, after a few tales from the Caribbean Trev landed a very similar fish to Dave's & lost a very decent fish on the float rod, bait of the day Luncheon meat ...we were the only anglers fishing on the lake today, I wonder why !

Cants Mere 27th January

The first trip of the year for Dave as he has been very busy with other commitments,, we arrived at the car park at 6-45am & fished from 7-30am until 1pm, due to overnight frost and the recent cold weather  the fish were off the feed and we struggled to catch a total of 4 Fish best about 8lb & Dave lost a monster at the net !
