LANCASHIRE COM­PLEX IS GOOD FOR A WIN­TER ‘TON’

Angling Times (UK) - - WHERE TO FISH: NORTH -

REC­OM­MENDED ROSE­MARY WOOD FISH­ERY, ORMSKIRK, LANCASHIRE

BOTH lakes are in ex­cel­lent form with match and plea­sure bags to 100lb be­ing caught.

On Is­land Pool a va­ri­ety of meth­ods will work, and tar­get­ing sev­eral ar­eas should keep you in touch with the fish. Start by fish­ing to the is­land with a Method feeder and a hard banded pel­let or a wafter on the hook.

Mean­while, feed a swim around 8m out with pel­lets and ground­bait and fish a soft pel­let over the top. You’ll en­counter some qual­ity bream along­side the carp.

If you’re search­ing for the larger carp tar­get Moss Lake, where fish to over 20lb can be caught. In a re­cent ses­sion an an­gler landed 17 carp to 19lb us­ing pel­lets on the pole.

The mar­gins are pro­duc­tive through­out the year. Feed mi­cros or 4mm feed pel­lets and fish ei­ther a hard banded pel­let or a soft ex­pander over the top.

The bomb can also work well, and us­ing 8mm pel­lets can bring bites when the fish are fur­ther out in the lake.

There are also some qual­ity roach in this wa­ter. Feed a cloudy ground­bait and fish mag­gots over the top on the short pole for 30lb bags.

You can also park right be­hind your peg on Moss Lake.
