Angel of the north Fishing Lakes Catch and Match results for week ending Oct 21st 2006


Weather conditions having major effect on fishing this week, however good size and quality of fish being caught, diverse tactics and balanced tackle essential,




Water temperature at 12 deg, with all fish species still feeding, Crucians and Tench still feeding, Carp very prolific, excellent range of species still being caught. Balanced tackle and end tackle and plumbing up essential to target the shy winter bites but conversions to catches doing well.

Best baits cockles (fresh), mussels, worm, corn, maggot, and expander pellets over small amount of angel feed pellets.




Coming into its own when windy very sheltered and fishing well, again good sizes also range of species coming out. Best baits expander and maggots also corn and cocktails of corn and maggot or casters, worm starting to do well also.




Carp now in winter dark golden colours in great condition ready for the winter colder weather, depending on weather conditions this week they have been much closer in to banks feeding of natural blood worm and fresh water shrimps, best baits on hook have been expander pellets, maggot, corn and caster doing well and worm also coming into its own, over Angel feed pellets –but a lot less feed pellets.
