THE OAKS IS TOP OF THE TREE

Angling Times (UK) - - NORTH -

MATCH weights at The Oaks Lakes have been soar­ing, with over 300lb of fish just to frame any­where!

Th­ese weights have all come from the Ash, Beech and Sy­camore pools, the lat­ter pro­duc­ing the big­gest weight of 406lb 1oz for Phil Sel­lars off peg 12 – a new venue record!

On Cedar the top five an­glers in a re­cent match all fin­ished over 130lb and from dif­fer­ent ar­eas of the lake – with pegs 5, 8, 16 and 62 all im­press­ing, and the top weight of 171lb com­ing from peg 48.

On the 68-peg Maple Lake the Method feeder with ground­bait and punched polony on the hair is catch­ing 50lb-plus bags of F1s and carp cast­ing tight to the is­land.

Paste over mi­cros next to reed beds is also pro­duc­ing the big­ger carp to 7lb.
