IS­LAND LAKE (24 PEGS)

Angling Times (UK) - - SOUTH -

This fea­ture-filled wa­ter is stocked solely with carp to 18lb and is the best place to prac­tise your feeder skills on the com­plex. Each of the 24 pegs has a chuck to an is­land and you can catch 50lb-90lb of carp on a bomb and pel­let out­fit or a mini Method feeder loaded with mi­cros tight up to these fea­tures. As the wa­ter tem­per­a­ture cools, cast­ing down the is­land shelf into deeper wa­ter is a su­perb tac­tic – es­pe­cially when switch­ing your pel­let hook­bait for worm or corn. Cat­a­pult­ing 4-5 free­bies of pel­lets or corn over your peg every five min­utes will also in­crease the chances of get­ting a bite with­out over­feed­ing. Try cast­ing into the open wa­ter be­tween the main is­land and mini is­lands from pegs 2, 7, 10, 17 and 20 for a bet­ter stamp of fish.
