SPLASH­ING out hard-earned cash on an ex­pen­sive syn­di­cate per­mit isn’t al­ways nec­es­sary to find big fish – Hull’s Pick­er­ing Park of­fers you the chance to land per­sonal bests of a num­ber of species for as lit­tle as £3 a day.

Small sil­ver­fish are few and far be­tween and it’s their big­ger broth­ers and sis­ters that dom­i­nate the ac­tion, with bream to dou­ble fig­ures, tench to 7lb and carp to over 20lb.

The 80-peg fish­ery is packed with fea­tures that cre­ate an ob­vi­ous tar­get zone, with five is­lands, sunken trees and large mar­ginal reedbeds.

With a huge head of bream and tench, Pick­er­ing suits feeder fish­ing but you can catch on the float closer in too. Tench con­sis­tently pa­trol the mar­gins, es­pe­cially in the morn­ing or early evening. Be­tween the two is­lands is a hotspot for the feeder and here both species

can be had on a feeder packed with ground­bait with worm or pel­lets on the hook. Right now tench are be­ing caught in num­bers, of­ten more than 10 in a ses­sion, so get your­self down to Pick­er­ing Park right now!
