BIG CARP ON PEL­LET WAG AND POLE

Angling Times (UK) - - WHERE TO FISH MIDLANDS -

IF YOU want to ex­pe­ri­ence ex­plo­sive ac­tion with dou­ble­fig­ure carp on the pole, Earlswood Lakes is the water to head to this week.

Match and plea­sure an­glers fish­ing the En­gine Pool at the West Mid­lands venue have been re­port­ing carp in ex­cess of 24lb, with plenty of smaller spec­i­mens too.

The match record is over 400lb here, so you won’t have to wait hours be­tween bites. There are 105 pegs on this 25-acre lake, but the most pop­u­lar swims are num­bers 5-25 near the car park. Pole an­glers have caught well on big pel­lets and meat, but if you pre­fer a rod and line ap­proach opt for a pel­let wag­gler.

Keep flick­ing in pel­lets and fish a larger ver­sion, say 8mm, over the top.

The pool also con­tains a good head of bream for those who pre­fer sil­ver­fish. PRICES: £7 a day, £5 con­ces­sions, avail­able on the bank CON­TACT: 01582 843454, or 07906 798610 LO­CA­TION: Earlswood Lakes, Malt­house Lane, Earlswood, Warks, B94 5RZ (park­ing is on the car park on this lane) RULES: Bar­b­less only, one rod limit, no night fish­ing, no Method feed­ers on the pole

Pel­let wag has been work­ing for the carp.
