THIRTIES NOS. 10 & 11 OF THE YEAR!
Turning up to any Linear Fisheries water on the Sunday of a Bank Holiday weekend is never going to leave you with too many options.
With Gaunts rammed and just two swims free on Unity Lake, Jason Dowling had very little choice, but despite having his hand forced, he still managed to bag his 10th and 11th thirties of the year in the form of a belting 33lb 12oz mirror and a lovely 32lb 2oz linear, which were backed up by fish to mid-twenties.
Trimmed-down 12mm PB pop-ups fished over a bed of 12mm whole and crumbed Bug boilies, hemp, maize and tigers, all soaked in Calanus Hydro and Bug Hydro Spod Syrup, did the bites for Jason.
