The A Team Exclusive
hree years after setting out on Monks,
with my main target
being to catch the
seven A-team members, I slipped the net
under the 50lb 2oz mirror known as
the Peach, my second Monks 50lb’er.
I banked the impressive fish from
Monks, marking the perfect return to
the lake after a long lake closure for
spawning. Monks pit isn’t a water you
can target fish… all you can do is try
and play the numbers game and just
hit the areas you think the bigger
ones are holding up, and fingers
crossed, eventually the larger girls
give themselves up. The Peach is a
rather elusive fish, only coming out
once last year. She had hit the banks
earlier this year in May on a zig, so I
hoped she would still come out over
The lake had been rather busy the
past two weeks but had not produced
many fish, I think mainly due to the
ridiculous temperatures. So when
a r r i v i n g o n Tu e s d a y m o r n i n g, I
planned to fish only small amounts of
Double D 38lb 8oz.
