This was a special 60th birthday present from Trevor’s wife Anne, daughter Michelle and son in law Robert who had also come along for the day. The wonderful Decoy Lakes near Whittlesey in Cambridgeshire was the chosen venue.

It was a warm summer morning with light westerly wind. All the strip lakes were free. I decided we would fish the middle pegs on Cedar Lake which are always good for big barbel.

Pole at 7mts was the chosen method, loose feeding with 4mm Van Den Eynde hard feed carp pellets plus using a small pot on the pole to feed some 6mm pellets, hookbait was 4mm and 6mm banded pellets.

Within a few minutes of feeding, both anglers were catching well. Rob was only using one net and had reached the limit in under 2 hours. Trevor had 2 nets and had reached the limit by 1 pm and they were both returning fish as they caught them.

We left at about 4pm Trevor and Rob had both had a brilliant day catching close to 200lbs each.
