The deep, large nature of the Main Lake makes it ideal for pellet waggler fishing with 6mm or 8mm pellets. Don’t fish too heavy or you’ll miss out on the smaller carp however, so try a hooklength of about 5lb. Also consider the pole shallow at 13m, fishing depths between 1ft and 3ft. Method and pellet feeders also work well.
If you want a busy day with silverfish try putting some groundbait and chopped worms around 11m out on the bottom. Finally 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!
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.
