    Fished a match there 2 weeks ago.
    I was second with F.ones. Peg 14. Method to corner of island with Sweetcorn on a 14s. Peg 12 won it with 6mm expanders over hemp close in on pole.
    Fished pretty patchy although it was still settling down after the floods.
    Fish showing now to Red Maggot nailed in the track as it gets colder. Definately better in the windy pegs.

    iam their this weekend do they still catch on small bits of paste close in or has that a no no now cus it has gone cold, do you still catch up in the water,
    and when feeding maggot what’s best to feed with it micros or just maggot.

    on that day m8 was it best to just feed a nugget groundbait on it’s own (after every fish) or did you put ant micros in with the ground bait as well,

    Dave, i put a small ball in with micros at 9mts- 10 and 2 o’clock, went on the tip at the start for 1 fish. But the pole line was better, small nugget with micros after every fish 4mm on the hook.Think you will catch at 4mts later on aswell mate same method

    guzzle i don’t think you would need to float pole mate as most of the fishing at heronbrook is speed fishing or fishing to far banks in shllow water.
