Good Session at Rixton

Had an afternoon and evening session at Rixton today.
Very slow to begin with, in fact it took over an hour for thr first bite to arrive.
I was using my feeder rod with a hair rig set up alternating between Fishmeal pellets and Sweetcorn. I began to catch small Skimmers, each one I caught was bigger than the previous one.
At 7.00pm the Quiver tip flew round, I thought I was into a Tench, although the fish felt heavy it did'nt put up much of a fight, when I got the fish to the net I was amazed to see the biggest Bream I've ever caught, it weighed over 4lbs (see the photo's below) I put the kettle in the photo to give some scale

I must be honest I was targeting the Tench, I could see plenty of Tench bubbles they never took any of my baits.

Rixton was looking good this evening,I was amazed to find I had the place to myself.

Might have a Pike session on the Bridgewater tomorrow.
