Reports are few and far between this time of year mainly due to the fact that the colder weather puts all but the keenest anglers off. However for those that persevere there are rewards to be had.
The lake has not seen many fish grace the banks this week, however a few pike have come out. Ashley Cardinal landed an 18lb pike on a lure whereas Jonathon Fromant managed a small jack on a roach dead bait.
Maggots are the going tactic at the moment, with a few fish coming out using PVA bags filled with them. Fish to 21lb have been caught. Winters lake is fishing slow at the moment so would advise keeping mobile and casting to showing fish with maggots, zigs or single hook baits.
Adam landed an 18lb common on mainline new grange baits, Stefan managed 2 commons of 13lb and 18lb as well as an 11lb mirror on short zigs while fishing with maggots into the deeper water. Trevor Francis landed 10 carp to 21lb7oz with most of the carp between 17lb and 19lb on maggots, well done Trevor!! Tony landed 3 carp to 16lb on small “Ronnie” rigs with a 12mm pop-up. David Barnham landed an 18lb carp as he was packing up to go home.
Fishing best for bream at the moment whilst its quiet for carp, Best method for the bream has been ground bait feeders with pellet hook baits cast into the deeper water, this has accounted for bream to 7lb.
