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.

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

Bit late in the season for a big fat female but with temperatures dropping this evening I fancied a quick session on my local pit and had this 7 pound p.b.male ,lovely dark fish and fought very hard, spent a good time in the net recovering and told several of his mates to come see me, turned into a cracking session with several other nice fish😀have I missed the boat for a nine plusser this year I wonder though...

No Si
I’m still persevering on my bogey water ,still blanking.
Haven’t fished for a few weeks due to the weather and I’ve just arrived home from a holiday with the wife .
I may take a drive to the lake on Thursday just to have a nose.
I must admit I’m starting to ask myself,what am I doing wrong,
Even the owner is starting to take the p**s ( sill hoping he’ll let me do a night )
Went to different water about two months back lost a good cat then foul hooked one about 30 lb (typical)
Released it in the water didn’t weigh it ,to busy kicking myself.
If my rigs are working on one in theory,they should be working on the bogey water .
Where this water has them to a ton I’ve beefed the end tackle up ,as in big hooks,heavy hook length etc
Which took some getting use to ( visually ) but as you know they’ve got mouths on them like buckets hence they shouldn’t notice a large hook
I’m sure when it happens, and it will ( so I keep telling myself ) I’ll forget all these blanks
If it doesn’t happen this year there’s always next , after all I’ve been waiting for my first twenty pound pike for donkeys years .
Roll on winter.
Regards
Tom :shake:

Got the tincas going well a couple of evenings ago with some nice fish over seven coming my way so i thought I would return in the morning, unfortunately I didn't equate for the thunder storms and didn't take the brolly,thus i got soaked, luckily I had waterproofs in the truck, so decided to fish through them. Weather slowed the tench down but did get this roach at two pound four and a nice plated mirror that gave a good scrap.nothing massive but a very nice 24 hours fishing

His coach is called Simon :laughs: not you mind : laughs:

I loved fishing the Waveney, few years ago now. I have my winter Pike fishing mapped out, unfortunately the Waveney isn't on the radar, should I fancy a change of venue one day I will bear your offer in mind :thumbs:

Good luck with your campaign, personally I am really looking forward to it, I have a couple of challenges lined up in :narfuk:

Tight lines PB
