Heron Lake, Matches »

[31 Jan 2016 | Comments Off on Match Result 31st January | ]

We had 5 brave the weather on today’s open, here are the results:

  1. Neil Hodder Peg 9 29lb 2oz
  2. Aide Holland Peg 7 20lb 4oz

I started fishing the margin with micro’s and dead reads and picked up a carp and some roach which then went quiet. I struggled for bites for the next 2 hours until I started loose feeding corn on a short line and started catching straight away. I loose feed corn for the rest of the match and picked up a nice mix of carp, skimmers, roach and crucians on various lines.

Thanks to all who came, our next open is 14th February.

  2. Roger Baker Peg 19 32lb
  3. Aide Holland Peg 10 20lb 12oz

Tony caught on the pole all day in a margin swim to his left. He fished up next to a Pontederia Lilly in about 2 1/2 feet of water, feeding corn and fishing corn on the hook for a great winter haul of carp. Well done Tony 🙂

Our next match is an open on Sunday 31st January. Hope to see you there.

Fir Tree Pond »

[18 Jan 2016 | Comments Off on Work on Fir Tree Pond | ]

Fir Tree pond has a shallow section along one side which over the last few years has been over grown with rushes. (Below) Fish have been holding up in this area making catching in other parts of the lake more difficult.

Fir Tree Pond before work 18th Jan 2016

 

We had a digger in to remove all the weeds, which has made a bit of a mess down the far end!! All pegs are still fishable and when banks have dried out I will be adding 2 more pegs on Fir Tree pond, this will give us a total of 15 pegs on this lake.

The next phase for Fir Tree pond is to have a new stocking of carp, not totally sure on which size we are having yet but will post on my blog page when we get them! 🙂
