    April 4th – 10th

    12lb 3oz David Mackay, Edinburgh, green pea, boat
    11lb 4oz Roly Stanford, Finedon, pink buzzer
    10lb 6oz Steve Eplett, Kettering, black buzzer
    + a further 35 fish over 4lb

    4lb 10oz Mr Mortimer

    Best Areas
    Bank – every area of the lake producing fish
    Boat – gravel bar, boat bay, dam, east arm

    Best Patterns
    Black or olive buzzer, bloodworm, damsel, cruncher, black/green lures

    Another decent week, especially for bank anglers. Boats are taking fish but with a still cool water temperature many fish are where the food is, in the margins. I would think the boat buzzer fishing will really switch on sometime within the next week or two.
    When the mainly cold wind drops there are good hatches of small buzzers. Nymphs caught as many fish as lures last week.
    The majority of fish continue to be taken 3 – 5 foot down with only a few rises.
