Big tench haul from stillwater

The tench fishing season started early for Nigel Peers when he slipped the net under five big tench topped by this 7lb 4oz fish.

The South- East based builder netted all his fish using a legered 15mm popped-up boilie which he cast tight to some snags at an unknown stillwater.

Nigel started his session at dawn and successfully attracted the fish into his swim by using PVA bags filled with pellets before topping up his swim with loose-fed small pellets and odd boilies during the day.

By late afternoon he had landed four fish with the biggest coming as the light started to fade.
