F1 carp hotspots and more
RECOMMENDED OAKFIELD FISHERY, AYLESBURY
THE UK has seen rain, snow and blustery winds over the last two weeks. That has put a huge dampener on match weights, but Buckinghamshire’s Oakfield Fishery hasn’t got the message!
Red Kite Lake has shown no signs of slowing down and in a recent competition an angler bagged a winning 188lb of big F1s to 5lb on caster fished shallow at 14m. The maggot feeder has also been fishing well in matches and produced a 105lb bag of big F1s and carp to 8lb for an angler on peg 6.
Brook and Swallow have also shown form. For a bag of skimmers, roach, barbel and carp, Brook is the lake to be on and the best tactic is to fish the pole at 10m on the deck with
corn, worm or maggot over groundbait.
All four species will show to this method but if you want to focus on the carp, cast a pellet bomb between the islands for fish to 8lb. PRICES: £9 per person, £6 per person after 12pm CONTACT: 07580 415402, 01296 770899 or visit www.oakfieldfishery.net
