Increasing temperatures and settled weather has seen Hallcroft getting back to top form with all species feeding well.
Bridge Pool has seen the top weight this week from a club match which was over 120lbs of carp and bream Moat and Bridge Pools are continuing to produce good sport for both pleasure and match anglers with good nets of carp and skimmers on pole with pellet or meat. Several bags of 70lb plus have been recorded. Match weights are topping the ton on a variety of methods from shallow fishing to feeder or bomb.
Reed Pool continues to fish well for the bigger carp, bream and the odd chub and tench on corn and cubed meat.
Croft is providing good sport with smaller carp to 5lb on pole and pellet at full depth.
Top tip now the water temperature is increasing : try paste or catmeat at 6m.
