Holbeach and District anglers have at last found the fish on a pleasant and warm Sunday morning, fishing for the Hereward Trophy on the South Holland main drain at Decoy Bridge.
In-form Holbeach angler Tom Wilson won the match after catching six good size tench for 22lb 1oz. Included in his catch was smaller roach, skimmers and perch.
Second was Jim Fennelow who had a bream of 5lb. He also had smaller roach, skimmers and perch totalling 7lb 2oz.
Third was Roger Smith (4-15) with skimmers to 1lb 8oz.
Pleasure anglers are also having large catches of tench and better bream anywhere from Leedsgate Bridge all the way past Lammings Bridge.
There have been carp and a large bream shoal sighted, roaming between Foremans Bridge and Cement. The advice is too look for the cloudy water for the bream and clearer water for the tench.
