I might get one shortly as bycatch. As long as they're not <1lb I don't mind too much. 4lb+ and I'd be happy to see them :thumbs:

I can't recall ever catching one in winter (other than when cod fishing at sea!).

I feel your pain. I used to target the tench at a local pit with lobworms and my first fish on worm was an 8lb+ tench, the second was an 8lb+ bream, yet after that it was a never-ending run of eels, eels and more eels. All of them the same size - around 1lb :no:
