Records are being broken with match weight of 188lb 13oz by John Foster in 3 hours on Lookout Friday Evening, then with the size of fish and numbers of fish being caught by pleasure anglers its been a very productive week, as if the fish know autumn has moved in early and are feeding up well.

Paste out of angels 3mm pellets over angels 8 or 10mm pellets doing so very well and feed angels 6mm over the top to keep fish in swim.

Chopped worm, caster, maggots mixed with hemp great for silvers with some cracking bream over 10lb getting caught, large ide, orfe, rudd, roach, skimmers, tench all feeding well, some big crucians in good numbers also, and big perch also feeding up.

Plenty of fry also on all lakes so spawning was sucessful this year again  all spawn hiding in reeds, Bassetts has even tiny gudgeon so so small which have spawned.
