Tench start to feed hard when the water temperature hits double figures, they can be caught below that, but it's usually slower going.

Agree seems temp driven - my local tench population has gone mad with recent high temps be interesting to see if the recent drop slows them down

Seems to me a bit of prebaiting definitely helps - currently using a mix of 6mm pelleted, hemp, maize & corn- had six yesterday
