Tottenhill wasn't quite at its best as the bank holiday weather engulfed its eagerly-awaited opening last weekend.

But there were enough carp and bream around to keep Lynn AA's die-hards happy as another summer kicked off on the popular club pit.

This is bran tub fishing at its best, where you never know what the next bite's going to bring.

Kirsty Reed showed her dad and several seniors the way home, with a 57lb bream and carp net, while fellow Lynn youngsters Nathaniel Winner and Tom Cockle netted 51lb and 47lb of carp respectively.

In slightly cooler climes, the fish seem to want the bait nailed hard on the bottom, with pole fished pellet and inch or two over depth and regular loose fed the key to keeping bites coming.

This is one fishery which generally goes from strength to strength as summer gives way to spring and the water warms, so it's one to pencil in if you're looking for somewhere to get your string pulled this weekend.

Elsewhere, roach nudging 2lb were the icing on the cake at Stanton's Lake up at Snettisham, where the bream were also obliging, even in windy conditions, with the best scaling around 7lb and a 22-fish bag of slabs averaging 4lb sending one angler home with a smile on his face.
