Still in lock down and still fishing local
I did have a near or just over 2lb perch aswell. Then fishing over to the tree i had some nice f1,s and a couple of small carp, all on banded pellet, feeding 4,s and banding a 6mm.
Last Thursday and peg 11 was my choice for the day, must say this was the most disappointing day ive had here in a long time as far as silvers go, just tiny roach and skimmers, no quality. But by again fishing pellet across at 16mtrs towards the island, i did have a nice run of f1,s again , one decent skimmer and a lone carp of about 7lb.
Then today i went on 31, veey cold to begin with, plenty of snow on the ground still,
and the top end of the lake was still covered with cat ice, so the water temperature was probably only about 4c I fed three lines today, groundbait and caster at topset and two, the same mix for 13mtrs slightly to the left, and a micro pellet line at 11mtrs to the right, i caught skimmers and roach on all three lines, but the 13mtr line was.the most productive, the pellet line seemed barren until i fed some groundbait there, without a doubt groundbait seems to be the key on this lake at the mo, it still seemed like a bit of a scratchy day but i still managed to end up with about 12lb of silvers, and two f1,s which i put straight back, Chris(the bath karaoke legend) Ollis was there so thanks for taking the picture.
Wont be going again till next week, probably back to huntstrete, but may go on withy for a change, as there are some quality roach being caught, or if the rain holds off i fancy another go on the chew in keynsham park after the dace again, have to wait and see . Stay safe everyone.
