FISH UN­DER FLOODLIGHTS FOR CARP TO 20lb-PLUS

Angling Times (UK) - - NORTH -

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)
