I love fishing Salford Quays in Spring. The Pike have been spawning, and the bream and tench making their annual migration out of the deeper docks into the three shallower docks in preparation for spawning in a couple of months time. Its the time of year when fishing the Quays is at its best – before the place becomes a canadian pondweed infested pit.
Paul and I have spent a couple of sessions trying out a few different techniques and baits – a slow start – including a blank – but i think we’ve cracked it now.
Tench to 4lb 14oz, Bream to 4lb+ and a nice carp of 17lb have been bending the rods recently – good fun!

That carp is so cool. Caught 4 bass today. Tight lines…

Lovely fish, all of them. That Carp is a clonker Paul has caught. Well done boys.
I have been contemplating making the Quays my regular haunt – i only have 4 hrs max so no travel
anyway good to see they are still there – great fish
well done to you both
