Fishing Week

Recommended Posts

Just back home from a week on the boat. Spent a lot of time fishing I am no expert but caught plenty of roach, perch and bream on the southern rivers. Most of the roach I caught were covered in black spots to some degree, can anyone tell me what this is ? Thanks

Was there a lot of "duck weed" about where you caught the roach?

No duck weed. Caught around the Brundall area on the Yare and further up around Wittlingham.

No sign of black-spot down on the Waveney although we have had it in the past. Personally been having some cracking good rudd fishing lately!

This is commonly known as Black Spot Disease (for obvious reasons) caused by a parasite. Here's a link to wiki with a more detailed description. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Black_spot_disease_(fish)

Nothing new. I was catching roach like that 60 years ago.
