Peg 32 has produced all week with all species being caught from here lots of good sized carp as well , the island is producing on all pegs some cracking tench both golden, and green to 7lb 1oz coming of the island and some of the ghosties in double figures also coming of the island, peg 16aa is still as productive as ever lots and lots of fish being caught from this peg,

Bassetts is as productive as ever with fish a chuck from gudgeon to 8lb 3oz carp by a 9 yr old Penny Moore her first day learning to fish what a great start

Hook baits try angel pellet, paste, cubes of meat, prawns, mussel, sweetcorn, soft pellets, feed angel pellets to keep fish in swim at this water temperature they are very hungry, if soaking angel pellets try some coke drink to soak them in adds sugar and taste fish love in warm water temperatures. Groundbait mixed with hemp also good to feed and keep fish in the swim.
