Mike Heljula’s Amazing Tench HaulPallatrax Angling
Pallatrax Team member Mike Heljula as been in contact and what a catch report! In a 10 hour spell he caught an amazing haul of huge Tench with Mike smashing his personal best several times! At the end of play, Mike had landed seven Tench to 9lb 12oz and the haul included 3 x 9lb plus fish, 1 x 8lb, 1 x 7lb and 2 x 6lb.
Tactics were a helicopter set up with a Stonze System natural weight wrapped in Daphnia and Maggot Crush (method mix), a Fluorocarbon hooklink to a size 10 Wide Gape Gripz design hook which included Jungle 10mm Squab pop up and some red maggots directly on the hook.
Fishing the light density Stonze in weedy conditions with Gamma mainline doing what it does so best. Mikes rig was then pinned down using the new Back Stonze – they do the job of a standard back weight, but so much better!
Congratulations, Mike, a session to remember forever!
