MOLANDS Fished a lot tougher this week with match nets to over 100lb but was very patchy. The top tactic at the moment is to fish across to the island with method/pellet feeder, waggler or bomb with 8mm pellet and down the margins later in the day with banded 6mm pellet, caster or corn. Carp to 25lb were caught in matches and by pleasure anglers fishing boilies with tuna or strawberry the top flavors at the moment and there were still fish being caught off the top with oily floaters.
GEARYS The cooler weather has made the fishing a lot more difficult but nets to 100lb were reported and carp to nearly 20lbs were caught. Bomb with pellet or corn ,long pole with banded hard pellet and boilies with a PVA bag have been the best tactics this week and the best pegs have been 7-12,18-23 and 31-36..
LITTLE GEARYS Fishing hard but fair with f1s and carp showing all around the pool . The fish still want to feed up close to the island or down the margins. A small pellet feeder/method feeder, waggler with 6mm pellet and bomb with 8mm pellet have all worked well across to the island and down the margins, caster, worm or pellet fished over ground bait.
GRATUITIES Fished ok with mixed nets of F1s, small carp, crucians, skimmers and the odd tench coming out to maggot, caster or expander pellet fished down the middle. A small feeder to the island is catching a few carp up to double figures. The end pegs have fished best with 8, 9 ,15 the pick of the pegs.
WILLOW Nets to around 50lb this week with carp to double figures and F1s to 4lb. Fishing tight to the island with a feeder or waggler and down the margins with pellet, paste, corn or worm have been the best tactics.
ANNIVERSARIES Pegs 1 – 6 and 17 – 21 have been in the best form with the F1s producing best of the action. Pole fished pellet or caster or on the deck or shallow has been the best bet in the open water and 6mm hard pellet, waggler or bomb has been working well too.
SIBLINGS A Fished ok at times this week with carp to 12lb and F1s to 6lb featuring in catches. Pole up to the island with corn, punched bread and dead maggot have been working well. Later in the day switch to the margins with similar baits.
SIBLINGS B Lots of F1s from 1 – 4lb being caught on maggot and pellet on the deck and shallow. The carp are showing better with fish to 10lb featuring in nets with corn, pellet or bread dobbed across to the far side reeds.
