Pleasure Fishing :
Milder weather has seen an upturn in the fishing at Hallcroft this past week.
Most noticeable have been the impressive skimmer/bream bags including Nick Speed’s 55lb of them in his winning net last Tuesday. There have also been no fewer than 20 other 40lb plus nets of skimmers throughout the whole week.
Moat and Bridge Pools are consistently providing mixed sport of carp and silverfish to a variety of baits including pellet, corn, maggots and casters.
Reed Pool is still producing double figure carp with pellet and corn the best baits.
Finally Croft Pool continues to provide plenty of bites from the smaller carp to 2 ½lb on pole and feeder tactics.
