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!
