Handy Guide to the Lakes
SIZE: 2 acres | PEGS: 20 | DEPTHS: 4-7ft
Tench to 8lb, Carp to 20lb, Rudd to 2lb, Roach to 2lb, Pike to 20lb, Perch to 3lb
Maggots and casters for the small fish and Luncheon meat, worms, sweetcorn and boillies for the Tench and Carp.
Float fishing close for the small fish and ledger and method feeder for the larger species. Pike are caught by spinning during the winter months.
Sit in one of the corner pegs and cast up the side of the bank underneath the trees. Red 10mm boillies is the top Tench bait on the Rudd Lake. If attacking the larger Rudd fish around a foot deep with a strung out rig.
SIZE: 14.5 acres | PEGS: 30 | DEPTHS: 5-9ft
Tench to 9lb, Carp to 27lb, Rudd to 2lb, Roach to 2lb, Pike to 25lb, Bream to 7lb, Barbel to 15lb, Eels to 5lb, Perch to 3lb
Large halibut pellets score well for the large bream and barbel and 15mm boillies work well for the Carp and Tench.
Distance ledgering with PVA bags is the method for the Carp and method feeder or convention open end feeder for the Bream and Tench. Pike are caught on dead baits during the winter months.
During the height of the summer there is some weed around so if attacking the Carp then fish with “popped up” baits to eliminate the bait being buried. Also the method beats the conventional feeder due to the same reason for the Bream and Tench.
SIZE: 4 acres | PEGS: 40 | DEPTHS: 4-10ft
Tench to 9lb, Carp to 25lb, Rudd to 2lb, Roach to 2lb, Pike to 20lb, Bream to 8lb, F1s to 4lb, Eels to 5lb, Perch to 3lb
Polony is by far the best hook bait on all methods on the Duck Lake followed closely but red and white 8mm boillies. If fishing the pole then soft hook pellets feeding 4mm hard’s works really well and if pellet doesn’t take your fancy then good old worms and casters will sort the skimmer bream out.
Long pole for Skimmers and Tench, short pole will catch you huge amounts of Roach with odd bonus fish thrown in. The method feeder comes up trumps when the fish are feeding well, but if they shy off then a little opened feeder or straight lead will keep them coming.
The larger Carp and Tench patrol the islands, so cast tight with larger baits! Pegs 22,23 and 24 hold large shoals of Bream and Tench close in as it deeper Keep alternating your hook baits, as one day from another can be completely different!
