Big perch on the cards at Viaduct

Angling Times (UK) - - WHERE TO FISH -


AT Bait-Tech Viaduct fish­ery plea­sure an­glers are fill­ing their boots with carp, bream and perch.

The 35-peg Cary Pool is a pro­lific match wa­ter where 100lb-plus nets of carp av­er­ag­ing 5lb-6lb are com­mon, but re­cently perch over 3lb have been banked on worms, cast­ers and prawns close to the bank. Don’t feed too much or too far out or you will risk be­ing ‘carped out’.

If you don’t fancy a ses­sion with the stripeys, big­ger carp to 15lb can be tar­geted. Fish the bomb with corn, pel­let and mag­got into open wa­ter and ex­plore your peg by cast­ing around and look­ing for in­di­ca­tions to lo­cate the fish.

On the Spring, Mid­dle and Match Lakes some crack­ing nets of bream and skim­mers can be put to­gether by fish­ing mag­got and corn over mi­cros at 13m. Al­ter­na­tively, bomb and pel­let is a great way to put to­gether a 100lb-plus net of carp, and this can be achieved by feed­ing ac­cu­rately and again be­ing ac­tive with your cast­ing.

On the Match Lake try fish­ing shal­low with caster or pel­let for a bag of carp and F1s.

If these fish fail to show you can al­ways switch to a deeper rig and fish over the same line you’ve been feed­ing.
