Excellent Sport on Offer at Local Lakes
This 1lb 8oz perch took a liking to luncheon meat
The last few weeks have seen Dad and I, joined by my friend Dave, sampling the fishing available on some of our local stillwaters and I am pleased to say with good results. A variety of tactics and baits were used from centrepin reels and floating crust to bite alarms and boilies with all methods producing good fish. Highlights included double figure carp for all of us, topped by a 16lb 1oz common for Dave which he tempted on a red thai curry boilie that I had made myself. Tench to 5lb 2oz made an appearance along with some decent bream, roach and perch. Conditions seem to be perfect at the moment and with summer changing to autumn it provides an excellent opportunity to get out there and enjoy what our lakes have to offer. For information on fishing any of our local venues pop in to the shop and have a chat with us.
