Martin being the first to land a nice fish of 4lb in nearly the first swim, this chub really tried to do him over in the weed and snags. i fished the next swim above Mart and had another chub bow wave up behind the lure 4-5 times this fishing drives you MAD its soooooo frustrating i managed to hook this tiny chub of around half a pound but it still managed to put a good scrap for itself! in nearly every swim fished chased and hit the lures (both on tiny JitterBugs now) we had some huge chub smash our lures and we both hooked and lost fish over 5lb. Martin managed another two fish of around 3 to 4 pound. along the pools i finally landed a better fish which done me over in the reeds and streamer weed! i thought it was possibly a pike at first but once i yanked it from the streamer weed i could see it was a chub of around 3lb, great sport on our fairly light Chubbing gear!
we ended the river session back down on the first sections where Martin flicks his JitterBug into the wier pool and instantly SMASH the best chub of the night of nearly 5lb is landed, i didnt get a photo due to rain but was the usual fat chunky southwest river chub! all in all awesome chubbing on surface lures in the pitch black of night. we ended the night with 6 chub banked and god knows how many hooked and lost!! heart stopping fun. we headed back to one of our Piking spots where we hooked and lost over 10 pike and i managed to land a fish of 9lb. it was getting late so we headed back. great all round session with a good head of fish, i highly recomend!!
