Mixed nets rule at Grange Park Fish­eries

Angling Times (UK) - - WHERE TO FISH -

WHEN the float dis­ap­pears at Grange Park Fish­eries it’s any­one’s guess what will be at­tached to the other end, with big nets of carp, F1s, cru­cians and sil­ver­fish be­ing recorded week in, week out.

Al­though a mem­o­rable ses­sion is on the cards from any of the lakes at this pop­u­lar com­plex, it is Heron and Os­prey Pools that have shone in re­cent weeks, with a Su­per­cup event pro­duc­ing 100lb weights.

Pole tac­tics are cur­rently dom­i­nat­ing on both, but wielding 16m of car­bon is far from es­sen­tial, with plenty of bites com­ing at much shorter lengths and good fish to be had in both the mar­gins and near shelf at around 5m, where you will find around 4ft of wa­ter.

Try feed­ing two lines at 10m, but make sure they are well sep­a­rated. A 4mm ex­pander pel­let over a pinch of mi­cro pel­lets or dead mag­gots will score well, but a very neg­a­tive feed­ing ap­proach is vi­tal to suc­ceed at this time of year pot too many free­bies in at the be­gin­ning and it will al­most cer­tainly spell dis­as­ter.

Mag­gots and pinkies are great al­ter­na­tives and can help pick up a bet­ter stamp of fish when the go­ing gets tough.

They are are ex­cel­lent for catch­ing the sil­ver­fish when the carp aren’t feed­ing.
