Young Douce twins bank 17 fish in a day

FISHING-MAD twin sisters Ayla and Maisy Douce enjoyed a hectic day of action at a south-west park lake, banking 17 fish to over 20lb.

Under the watchful eye of dad Chris, the girls targeted an overhanging island snag at short-range, each using a simple lead clip set-up baited with a balanced 12mm Krill wafter topped off with half a white pop-up.

Chris kept the swim topped up with a couple of Spombs of boilies and mixed pellets after each fish.

The best fish of the day were both commons – with Ayla’s scaling 21lb 12oz and Maisy not far behind on 18lb 6oz.

Chris said: “The conditions were absolutely bang on and as soon as the rods went out, they started ripping off! It wasn’t long before I’d cursed myself for not bringing more bait!

“At one point we ended up with three fish in two nets, and also had double takes on a couple of occasions. The girls caught an absolute rake of fish and I was a tired mess by the time we got home!”
