On the Grand Union canal last week the most productive area was

  Leighton Town centre opposite Tesco’s where an angler had over 90

  fish, mainly perch using maggots and a whip. In the early part of last

  week a couple of anglers had 6 bream each on section 3 just north of

  ‘Three Locks’. The bream were showing along a number of sections last

  week but with the heavy frosts over the weekend, smaller fish are being reported.


  The weather is starting to affect the fishing at Wyboston. On North

  House Lake Jem Gribble caught a 17lb mirror carp and Steve Slater

  caught a 16lb 8oz common. On the South Lagoon the predator hunters are

  out. John Portman caught a 13lb 4oz zander; Bill Holtum had one at 8lb

  8ozs. Eddie Kemp caught 2 pike to 9lbs, Ewan Thompson had 2 pike to

  8lbs and our bailiff Danny Kelly had 5 pike to 15lbs (3 doubles). The

  adjoining River Ouse is very clear and finding fish is becoming difficult.


  Please be aware when fishing on any of Luton‘s water’s during very

  cold weather. A number of our river stretches and lakes are very deep

  only a few feet out. Please ensure that you wear sensible footwear and

  if fishing from a wooden platform take extra care as these can become

  very slippery after a hard frost.


  The Officers & Board Members Match took place on the Grand Union

  Canal, section 7, The Globe, Linslade on Saturday. Results: –


  1) Dave Moss             6lb 8ozs            mainly roach on caster


  2) Malcolm Harley        5lb 5ozs            mixed bag


  3) Dennis Hunt            3lb 12ozs          mainly roach on bread punch.


  On Sunday Luton had an inter-club with Dunstable and Leighton Buzzard

  on the grand union canal sections 2a, 2b & 3a at Turnover Bridge.


  1) Dave Pellow            6lb 2ozs


  2) Shim Arthurs           3lb 10 ozs


  3) Darren Perry            3lb 4ozs


  The fishing was difficult due to the canal being iced over on arrival.

  The swims were eventually cleared by the anglers and boating traffic.
