ST JOHNS LAKE
The cold North East wind and morning frosts made the going tough until Wednesday when fish started to feed again.
Thomas Potts and his pal, Jamie Thomas found the fish on the Road Bank. Thomas caught a nice 21lb common (a P.B.) and Jamie caught a mirror of 17.13 and a common of 14.14. All three fish were caught on maize Other fish to twenty plus were caught from both the Point and the Long Bank. Korda’s Danny Fairbrass was there to take advantage of the feeding activity and caught two twenties to 25.12. Danny was using Funnel Web PVA bags for his loose offerings and maize on the hook.
