CHARITY FARM FISHERY, WIGAN, LANCS THIS fishery has been throwing up a lot of large carp recently including this impressive 14lb 8oz specimen landed by seven-year-old Freddie Owens.
The youngster fished sweetcorn down the edge on Pond One, although all four pools here contain an impressive head of carp to 20lb.
You’ll find plenty of open water on each lake, which makes them ideal for practising your pellet waggler or feeder skills – and it’s these exact methods that are producing some of the better fish when the sun is up.
You’ll also find plenty of silvers including chub, roach, rudd and perch on each lake when maggots are introduced. Contact: 01257 451326 Postcode: WN6 9PP
