Temple's first fish of 2009 smashes through thirty pound barrier

Bury Hill regular Mark Savage braved freezing conditions on Temple this weekend to bag not only a new PB, but also Temple’s first fish of 2009, a stonking 36lb 2oz mirror known as Italian 1.

Fishing peg 4, Mark who had been on the water since Friday fished a number of different methods and baits before settling on a light running rig and a balanced Questbait Rahja Spice boilie tipped with a fake corn which had been glugged for 3 months in a trick glug. Fishing a size 10 long shank blow back hook, Mark decided to try something different and opted to use a 12” Korda super natural hook length which he pinned down to the lake bed.

With tag number 138134, the big ‘Italian’ is a new PB for Mark beating his previous best fish, Temple’s Ghost which hecaught last year weighing 35lb 4oz. The Italian was last cught in May 2008 weighing 34lb 14oz.

With fish on all lakes now starting to show, expect to see more big fish caught over the coming weeks as the weather starts to improve.
