AT MESSINGHAM’S Grange Park Fishery, match weights across all four pools on the com­plex have been in triple fig­ures over the past month.

Of these, Heron, Osprey and King­fisher have been pro­duc­ing the goods for match­men us­ing mag­gots, paste and pel­lets. The best weight of 207lb was by Phil Deitch, who mostly carp to 5lb down his edge line on paste. But it’s not just carp that dom­i­nate, as an ex­cel­lent stock­ing of F1s, gold­fish,

cru­cians and sil­ver­fish fea­tures across all the lakes to help with catches in the colder months.

In one open match last year, peg 11 on King­fisher pro­duced 120lb of pure cru­cians for one an­gler fish­ing mag­got shal­low – so you know it’s not just the carp that will pull your float un­der. Right now, paste and pel­let is work­ing, as too is mag­got and caster shal­low, al­though the reg­u­lars here are hav­ing bet­ter re­sults on meat and hemp at 7m on the deck.

On the 26-peg Curlew Pool, young­sters and plea­sure an­glers can catch carp to 4lb. PRICES: £5 a day, £4 con­ces­sions CON­TACT: 01724 764828 or 07970671943
