Well my first bets would be scouring the water for a few hours to see where they show the most and then get to grips with the lake bed; features so i have a basic image of where the fish are and what surrounds them everything else i shall have to ponder you guys for Wink

Very sensible, I think it pays to spend as much time on there not fishing and walking round as it does fishing itself but having said that they dont show themselves as much as on a lot of waters particularly early on in the season but they do give themselves away if you keep your eyes peeled. Generally theres no major features although there is one or two. I dont know whether you have been down in the summer months but it gets very weedy so that gives you a starting point and also is a good indicator of the shallower areas are.

Thank you.
Ive never fished over weed so this will be a good learning curve for me and is would give time to try out the zig rig which i am going to be trying later on this year.
With regards to keeping my eyes peeled on the water then dont worry because when i am fishing its the only i do.
I havent been down yet i am hoping to very soon tho so it may be good to meet some one down there so they can give me a rough layout of the surroundings, etc.

Im sure once its thawed there will be someone about again. Its not the easiest water in the world but it can be cracked with a bit of dedication. its a good "learning curve" water. Its definately not for the complacent angler. Those who put the time and effort in and are prepared to walk to the swims and pop down to do a little prebaiting regularly etc will be suitable rewarded!

You need to buy a full season ticket unless you know someone on there. In which case you can get a 24 hr guest ticket. There is a day only season ticket but to be quite honest I wouldnt bother with that if your after carp. Im not sure whether you have spoke to Russ or not so I dont know how many new members He's allowing on this year you'll have to speak to him on that really.

Thanks.
I know someone who is joining hes called Larry quite a short dumpy guy hes got glasses, if you've seen him.
So i may be able to get a guest ticket with him.
I was actually looking at the day only ticket; mum being paranoid of me doing night sessions on my own Embarassed

mmm tricky one, your unlikely to be fishing on your own as such. Russ's dad Olly is a full timer from the spring through til christmas. also theres always a few other lads on hand especially at weekends. The biggest plus as regards to safety is that it is so secluded so you tend not to get random people walking round at night. If Im totally honest I think you might struggle fishing just days. Not because you only catch at night but because a lot of the time it takes longer sessions to get the fish going. (not in all cases though) but its not easy so sometimes you need to sit it out for the long haul which can mean two or three days.

Ooooh right.
Sounds a safe place and looks it; from the maps.
If i play my cards right my mum may get me the full syndicate ticket.
What species are best to go for in the day time?

Well its jam packed with Bream (if your not totally carp obsessed) so if you have got a feeder rod and theres a good chop on the water get on the cage feeder with groundbait, caster, worm, sweetcorn etc. Vitalin is also a good one for the bream -as I found at my peril! also theres some clonking perch that can be had on spinners. one or two hybrids, roach, a few decent eels etc. To be honest most of my best hits for carp have come between 5 in the morning and mid day so day only sessions could pay but id say to prebait little and often to maximise your chances of that.

Ta mate.
I love I heard theres pike in there is that true?
I am an early bird my self and get up at 3am to go on most occasions to get the most out of day sessions.
I would mind pre-baiting for day sessions only thing im worried about is incase someone was to fish my pre-baited spot Shocked lol but thats something you cant always avoid.
Would you say it would be classes a red letter days to catch around 3 fish in a day?

Hiya, There used to be one or two pike but I believe that most were lost when the lake was drained a few years back although I have it on good authority that one or two remain. Your right about prebaiting and unfortunately its the risk you take but you can do a couple of things to maximise your chances of that not happening. One thing would be to avoid prebaiting the popular swims i.e ones that are easily accessible and close to the car park. Make the effort to bait swims that take a bit of a walk to get to and try baiting a "Plan B" spot aswell if you expect that there might be someone in your first choice swim. Also and I know it sounds a bit naughty but it has worked for me is to prebait after dark and keep your captures quiet. By doing that I have been fortunate enough to keep swims ticking over for two or three weeks til the swim has died. The secret squirrel approach is not for everyone but if your sole aim is number crunching which admittedly mine was then it pays to play your cards tight to your chest and have a few tricks up your sleeve. Not that I advocate stroke pulling like! Laughing
And yeah if you have a three fish hit youl'll be the talk of tardy son, thats if you even tell anyone you had em! lol!

I tend to go for the harder to get to swims anyway like you said no one really uses them which is good for many reasons.
I would have to turn into a suck up for one of my parents to take my to Tardy after dark to bait up lol, but i understand what you mean.
Oh right well i hope to be the talk of Tardy soon then Wink
How many would you say you get a day?

As I say its no push over but Si's right you can get multiple fish hits but again the weed is a big problem you'll lose as many as you land, I lost 6 fish the one morning and felt sick to the stomach! The last season I fished it properly I had 27 fish. you can go to some waters and have that many in a couple of days but to tot that many up on here you have to be completely blinkered and slightly insane and think about nothing else! Seriously though, if your the sort to get itchy feet and are not prepared to suffer a few blanks it might not be for you. Some people join, fish a few sessions and get demoralised and you dont see them again so it certainly sets the hard core anglers apart. Neutral

Dont worry guys i dont get fed up of things like that so easily if i know there are some clocking fish in there i will stick around until i catch them.
Sometimes a blank session isnt always a bad thing for example you can learn from them.
God i cant wait to get down there Razz
