After a six-fish catch on Abbey Lakes’ Wild Boar, Alex Shorrock moved over to the usually more challenging Heron Lake for the second week of his stay and duly rinsed the place, landing 23 fish in total, including two sixties and four fifties!
Amongst Alex’s haul were the Long Common at 61lb and another 60lb-plus in the form of Gums, whilst friend, Paul Richardson, also enjoyed an amazing session, smashing his PB on three separate occasions as part of a 22-fish hit, but we’ll have more on that tomorrow!
To combat the crays on the lake, the lads used plastic maize soaked in Hemp Oil for their hookbaits, which they fished over 15mm and a few 18mm Secret 7, SLK, Bug and Switch boilies, all soaked in matching Hydro Spod Syrups and Hemp Oil. Also added to the mix were crumbed boilies, particles and maize, covered in Hemp Oil and Fish Hydro.
