Angling Times (UK) - - SOUTH -

THE best lake on site for catch­ing not big weights and mul­ti­ple species too; you can ex­pect to catch over 10 species here us­ing sev­eral tac­tics.

Sur­pris­ingly, an­glers are still catch­ing shal­low and down the edge – with some of the re­cent match win­ners em­ploy­ing these tac­tics to good ef­fect. Lo­cal an­gler John Fos­ter won a re­cent open with 139lb 5oz of carp and sil­ver­fish from peg 16a by fish­ing paste down his near side and the pel­let wag­gler at dis­tance – so don’t be in­clined to start fish­ing on the deck just yet.

John also won an­other match from peg 1 with 112lb 15oz of carp, tench, bream, ide and roach. Other bang in-form pegs are 5 and 28, where an­glers in a re­cent match fished shal­low with caster, pel­let and paste in the mar­gins for weights of 113lb and 97lb re­spec­tively.

Al­ter­na­tively, the feeder is a great method on this lake, with many an­glers mak­ing the most of the far bank mar­gins for the big carp, bream and tench. Al­most any bait on the hook works, al­though dead mag­gots tend to pro­duce more bites from all species.
