HIGH­FIELD FISH­ERIES BLACK­POOL, LANCS

Angling Times (UK) - - WHERE TO FISH -

A BEECH LAKE (35pegs)

If you’re on a peg where you can reach the is­land with a pole, in­tro­duce damp­ened mi­cros and dead mag­gots fish a banded 6mm pel­let or corn for carp to 8lb, skim­mers and tench. On the feeder, clip up and cast tight to the is­land with damp pel­lets around the frame for big carp.There are also ide in here to 2lb-plus which show to cast­ers shal­low or on mag­gots on the deck. End pegs 1, 18, 19 and 35 have seen the best match weights of late.

B OAK LAKE (42 pegs)

Oak fea­tures three is­lands. Peg 33 re­cently pro­duced 72lb 6oz of carp, F1s and skim­mers in a match, and the sur­round­ing pegs fea­ture plenty of open wa­ter and is­lands. Mar­gin fish­ing can pro­duce carp to nearly 30lb. Pegs 1, 10, 25, 26 have shown form in the mar­gins, and peg 26 saw a 93lb 14oz bag in a re­cent com­pe­ti­tion.

C ASH LAKE (25 pegs)

Ash is the small­est lake on the com­plex but also the deep­est. There’s a fan­tas­tic head of still­wa­ter bar­bel in here and fish to 5lb can be caught short down the edge or at the bot­tom of one of the is­land’s slopes on dead mag­gots, worm seg­ments or cast­ers. There’s also a head of spec­i­men cru­cians and perch to over 2lb, which show to mag­gots over ground­bait in open wa­ter, or down in the mar­gins with worms (specif­i­cally for the perch). If you’re af­ter carp, pegs 11, 12 and 13 are good, es­pe­cially if you fish tight up to the is­land with pel­lets or corn. For mar­gin fish­ing pegs 1, 10, 14, 22 and 25 are the ob­vi­ous candidates for pro­duc­ing the bet­ter carp and bar­bel. Pegs 5 and 18 are also good feeder pegs, as they can reach the gap be­tween the is­lands.
