Bit of a slow start to the Tench season, what with all the topsy-turvy weather of late, but more than happy with this one from last week....

9lb-10oz :cool:

That’s a beauty! Good Angling.

Has anyone fished for tench in deep water? There’s an area of one of the lakes I’m currently fishing that goes down to 18’-20 feet, but it looks lovely; a nice gentle-ish slope which is covered in weed, on the end of a spit. Feels ideal but I’ve never fished for tench in deeper water.

My syndi' averages 14' and goes down to over 30'. I was catching them in 8 foot of water, on the slope, a rod length or two out at the weekend.

The fish in my earlier pic was caught in about 10ft, on the slope.

Deepest ive had them at is 11ft.
Let me ask you one question. Is your money that good. Will it buy you forgiveness. Do you think that it could. I think you will find When your death takes its toll All the money you made Will never buy back your soul.

Deepest I’ve had them is probably about 8ft,
I fish a deep pit with depths down to 40ft but only get tench in the margins or on top of the bars
