MOLANDS The fishing improved a little this week but was still patchy with match weights to over 120lbs in some areas but other parts not so good. Meat seems to be the bait fished close in or down the margins for big f1s to 8lb and on the bomb across to the far bank for carp.8mm hard pellet on the waggler and shallow pole with pellet have also been working. Best areas have been 1-4 ,15-25,42-48 and 57-60
GEARYS The cold nights are still affecting sport on Gearys with anglers struggling early in the day but it does pick up into the afternoons. Carp to 21lb were reported by pleasure anglers and nets to 90lb were best in the matches. Method feeder with wafter, dead maggots and small boilies has been the best approach for carp. The skimmers have been showing well with the best net of all skimmers for a long time came off peg 33 with Baz Byrd catching 58lb of them on long pole and pellet.
LITTLE GEARYS Still not producing its best form with nets to around 70lb this week. Meat or maggot down the margins later in the day has been the best tactic with bomb or waggler and pellet feeder to the island also working. Pegs 1-13 and 21 – 30 have been the most consistent
ANNIVERSARIES Match and pleasure catches to 80lb were caught this week with most pegs producing plenty of f1s and silvers with the odd bonus carp. Pole fished pellet, caster and corn has been the top tactic but on the wider areas bomb or a small feeder with banded hard pellet has also been working.
GRATUITIES Carp to double figures have been caught on waggler and bomb with 8mm pellet fished to the island. The margin sport on the corner pegs has been really good with worm or meat catching lots of carp and f1s. For those that like the silver fish nets to 25lb of nice sized roach and skimmers are being caught on maggot or caster
WILLOW Pegs 1-6 have been the best pegs with anglers catching carp to double figures and f1s to 5lb in nets to 60lb +. Waggler or feeder up to the island has been the best approach but don’t ignore the margins later in the day when bigger carp and f1s are coming to corn or meat.
SIBLINGS A Fished a little better this week with match and pleasure anglers reporting catches to 60lb. Corn or meat down the margin or maggot/pellet down the middle and banded 6mm pellet across to the island have been the best tactics.
SIBLINGS B Nets to around 60lb were caught this week and most pegs producing decent sport but it was the pegs at the end of both arms that provided the best of the action . Pellet ,meat ,maggot or caster fished short or down edges has been the way to go.
