Default Tench 2016

Kicked off this year's tench campaign on Thursday with a 13.14 mirror on maggot feeder! Stuck to my guns and got my first tench of the year shortly after, a male about 4lbs, then as I was packing away the last rod left in got me this nice fish of 6.13 to complete the day!

Lovely early season tench Steve. We saw 3 out on Good Friday whilst fishing lobworms intended for perch, biggest was a good six.

Anyone still using bfw's sister site, tench fishing world ? Would be good to see that being used more frequently and livened up with a bit of banter.

I'm looking forward to my tenching again this Spring but sadly the big 60 acre pit I fish is always slow to warm up for the tench to really get on it.

Lovely tench Steve. I'm itching to get out also but like Duncan, waiting for a big pit to warm up a bit.

Didn't know anything about a sister site, I'll check that out thanks.

Just had a look, not a member there but noted that all member e-mail addresses are visible. Might need a dose of looking at for security.

I had a quick look at tench Fishing World and it seemed to be pretty dead, no recent posts?

Had a good day today with a total of 8 tench, best 5.13, all came to maggot feeder, lost a couple of others.

Back on the tench trail yesterday after a week's holiday on the south coast, wasn't sure how the water would react to the clear, sunny conditions but it decided to reward me with 4 tench, all males, with a best of 5.10. Also had another that came adrift after a few seconds.

A bit of help from you seasoned Tenchers please? I've joined a local club for a bit of close season tenching. The two main lakes for the Tench are shallow and during daylight hours apparently the water birds are murder diving continuously on your baits so I want to bait the previous evening for early morning sorties. I intend using a blanket feed laced with a small "particle" and some dead maggots. Hopefully this will not interest the tufties and coots too much!!!
my question is, what particle ? If I were doing this for Barbel or Carp I would be using hemp but is this as good for Tench or can you suggest a better option, buckwheat or the like perhaps but I want a small particle size to hopefully deter the birds!!! Any suggestions please ?
