A hot ending to the week with water temperature hitting the highest temp for years, fish happier feeding dusk and dawn when sun light fading , best baits try on the hook maggots, worm, paste, caster and pellet, mussle and prawn also try sweetcorn, do feed well.
Some good fish out very early in the morning eg Peter Craig a season ticket holder fishes 3am to 6pm and bags up he had a cracking 19lb 2oz mirror, a 16lb 7oz mirror and a common full of eggs at 23lb 9oz all on Bowes.
Lots of fish being caught on Lookout with some excellent crucians 17 in total to Alice Evans from Manchester together with Carp, and 11 tench also a 2lb 13oz perch (with a mouth full of fry).
Bassetts has been very productive as loads of schools, clubs, and ypouth clubs booking coaching and everyone catching high numbers of fish but also getting some good sun tans
When you are fishing make sure you keep both margins fed as fish are very close in and up in the water. A pleasure to enjoy these warm days.
