I’m lucky to have access to around ten to a dozen exclusive tench lakes.
Many years, my clients land upwards of eight hundred tench between April and June. Average weights are probably between four and six pounds but we catch literally hundreds between seven and ten pounds. What is exciting is the number of eight and nine pounders that we land, generally a hundred or so each season.
Here are three techniques that are out of the box and have delivered for me when conventional rig and baits have not hit the mark.
