Summer Tips

Being a small lake the fish are easily disturbed so fishing the central channel first off is a likely bet. On warm still days pellet wagglers work well when the fish are cruising. Method and pellet feeders also work well, particularly towards the reeds and bushes at either end of Frog Hall.

The margins at the end of the day are where you’ll often get the biggest fish, with some fantastic fishing to be had in the evenings, feeding corn heavily. Be warned use at least 8lb line however, as these are big fish!

Winter Tips

Fish tend to push out into the middle of the lake so use a method or small pellet feeder. A bomb and corn approach works too, especially in the harshest conditions. You might catch a net of silverfish on the long pole with maggots, casters or pinkie baits.
