FISH UNDER FLOODLIGHTS FOR CARP TO 20lb-PLUS
THIS floodlit fishery is set in peaceful surroundings with around 1.5 acres of water to go at. The lake’s depth range, from 3ft down to 13ft in places, makes it ideal for margin and feeder or bomb work all year round.
Although the fishery is stocked with more than 10 species it’s the carp you currently want to be going for – with fish topping 20lb falling right now. The best way to catch them is to cast a pellet waggler or Method feeder some distance, with banded 6mm pellets on the hook.
Similarly, you can draw the carp in closer to the pole line by pinging in 4mm pellets at 8m and fishing a 6mm bander over the top. Start off on the deck, but the carp will soon show shallow on a hot day.
Fishing corn or worm down the edge line will also pay off for the odd barbel and tench to 6lb, as well as koi to 10lb and surprise sturgeon to 5lb. Prices: £6 a day, dawn until dusk Contact: Graham, 01257 253899 Postcode: WN6 8RS (nearest)
