As soon as 4pm came wow fish a chuck is being caught and if you are in from opening fish a chuck then you have to work hard to catch fish till the eve again.
Wind direction has proved to be make or break fishing this week, when the wind swings to the East the fishing became hard, Saturdays match was won with 55lb in a east win and John Foster had 87lb 14oz on a North wind.

Bassetts is producing some good carp and anglers are also getting some cracking silvers, young anglers on Sunday Reece Emms 14 yrs old, Graham Simpson 14yrs old and biggest fish caught by Bruce Wilson 11yrs old all from Sunderland had a cracking session learing to fish.
Lookout has shown that the fish are starting to shoal together get on a shoal and fishing is great you do need to walk the banks before fishing to determing which peg to fish on, Jon Ainsley from Gateshead caught over 100 fish in an afternoon session with carp coming on to feed at 4pm and ton up John Foster did well on paste on Sunday with 103lb 10oz
Best baits as water temperature drops is maggot, worm, caster, paste made out of angel 3mm or micro pellets, and pellet on the hook, sweetcorn on the hook, and later in the day luncheon meat on the hook, but you must put loads of feed in to get good catches .
