January fishing tips and tricks

Tips & Tactics

  • Posted Tuesday, 23 January 2018

Specimen Waters
Zigs are worth a try at the moment on all 3 waters ranging from mid water to 2ft. Light baiting with maggots and medusa rigs worth a go on all 3 waters as well as it's not worth heavy baiting just yet. Bright single hookbaits also a favourite at this time of year.
Runs Waters
Short bright zigs from 2 to 3ft and single bright pop ups with a light scattering of bait is working well on the runs waters. A cloudy spod mix over the zigs is well worth a try on the Middle Pool.

How's it Fishing

Runs waters are fishing well especial Middle pool. These pools always have great winter form, at the moment short zigs with bright coloured foam are catching well placed around 2-3 feet in the water. Single bright pop ups with a light scattering of bollie is also producing results. On the specimen lakes Glovers is having some fantastic winter form with 2 new 30's, again to short zigs anything to 2-3 feet. Worth trying these methods on Bridge and Quarry.

October fishing tips

Tips for the week ahead

  • Posted Thursday, 05 October 2017

For Middle Pool a spread of boilies or a load of boilie chops spodded out with bright pop ups over the top. Dam Pool fish are down into the deeper ledges, use boilie and pellets, wafters or balanced baits. For Lodge use the same methods. The Quarry, fish for a bite with solid bags, stringers or mesh bags, light baiting advised. Same tactics for Glovers and The Bridge Pool.

Tips for the week ahead

  • Posted Thursday, 06 July 2017

The carp on all the lakes now are being influenced by the winds and you will find a lot of fish on the windward banks. Fish are still well catchable on the surface so don't rule that tactic out, and especially were you might have calmer water. Good beds of mixed particle and pellet is doing well on the runs waters at the moment, with Lodge and Middle Pool fishing very well over this method. Over on the specimen waters it is essential to spend a bit of time finding those clear spots, and its paying off for the ones that spend that bit of extra time.

Tips For The Week

  • Posted Monday, 24 June 2017

We have a lot milder weather this week, and low pressure but the fish are still on the surface and up in the layers. Surface fishing is the method to use to catch some cracking carp on all of our waters at the moment and through the week. On the 3 main Specimen waters it's crucial to lead around with your braided marker rod, don't bother with a marker float just a bare lead is far easier to use and to find clear spots.

The fish seem to want a bit of bait so a good mix of hemp, corn, pellet and boilie chops is a good option and you then have a variety of hook bait options to fish over the top with. The same goes on the runs waters just that you need a lot as a small 2 pint bag is no good. A good day's floater fishing you want a couple of kilo of floaters. Fish are still following fresh winds on all the lakes so keep this in mind when picking swims.

Carp spawning.

Spawning Information 2017

  • Posted Thursday, 25 May 2017

All Pools have finished spawning except for The Quarry. This will reopen at 12pm on Saturday 27th May. Plenty of good silver fish including double figured barbel and large chub are showing and being caught on the pleasure pools (Canals, Mallards, Doughnut, Duck Pond and Pintail).

Tactics for this weekend: Surface fishing on all pools is recommended as is fishing in the margins and up in the water with Zig Rigs, etc. For silver fish, fish shallow on the float with maggot, caster or pellet. Fish far margins for the best results.
