"What a day on Blagdon Lake today for my guest Trevor Ball and myself. Started on Washing Line tactics and Trevor had his first ever Blagdon trout - a cracking 4:08 rainbow. And it was also his first time boat fishing! We had 5 by lunchtime, then switched to dries and went to the Top End - catching a further 11 rainbows - the best weighing 6:00 on a Claret Bits. Moving around the lake into Holt Bay we had more fish to 4:08 - all on dries.  Blagdon Lake is absolutely on fire - from the Dam to Wood Bay. "
