He caught several good size Ballans on a variety of baits which included ragworm,crab and prawn. Terry won the competition with a colourful Ballan Wrasse weighing in at 5Ib 14oz. The big Ballan was returned alive.

Hi, the winter is here and the fish on the Tarn are playing hard to get with many anglers blanking on a regular basis and with only a couple of fish coming out a week, I have been fishing really carefully. Due to having to work 6 days a week at the moment I've been getting down the lake in the dark so fish location has become hard! Most of my sessions have been in a swim with some good margin holding spots and have resulted in at least one fish every trip and one night even...

I have not managed to get out as much recently as at this time of year my work schedule is demanding to say the least. However, i did manage a quick day session a weekend before last and the weather had turned really cold throughout the week and we had the first proper thick frost overnight. With this in my thoughts, I had already planned to just fish single hookbaits on chod rigs cast at any showing fish. This was to be my plan of attack due to the cold water temperatures...

For my last Overnighter of the year, I was at my usual club lake and using my usual bait...BERKLEY’S TUNA SPICE! I arrived on Saturday afternoon, and thankfully I had my favourite swim. I’d set up my Rods prior to the session and therefore had my Rods out within minutes of arriving. I was just using a couple of Rods and didn’t bother bringing the Spod or Marker as I know the Lake well. After my first casts, I led the Rods on the ground whilst I got my Alarms out the Rod bag....

Accuracy is the most important thing at any time of the year, in the past I have seen many anglers find a spot with their marker, pop it up to the surface then just cast to it which is very inaccurate as distance is very difficult to judge over water. I can remember a time I was on one particular venue out in a boat and was watching a angler spod to his marker then cast his hook baits to it, he thought he was bang on target from the bank but as I was in line with the marke...

After reading that Gulp! needed field testers I was keen to join the army. A couple of emails back and forth and I had been recruited. After reading up about the bait I decided to order the Squid and Liver, and the Irish Cream Boilies. The delivery was here in no time delivered to my classroom (I’m a secondary teacher) and I anxiously waited till the lunchtime bell to get a speak peak at my new boilies. With two minutes till the bell the kids were already waiting behind th...

It's been really good to get out on the bank side again following a recent accident at home while decorating I almost cut the top of my casting finger off. With the damaged finger now fully healed apart from some numbness it's a short session day trip that I 'am on. Autumn seems to have gone so quickly I feel like I have missed a good bit of fishing time . On arriving at the lake there is a cold North Easterly blowing , not to hard thankfully , quite a bit of cloud cover w...

Hello again, The autumn is in full swing and the fish are still feeding at the Tarn. I finished work on Saturday night and headed down the lake and was pleased to see the swim I wanted was free so loaded the barrow and was in the swim setting up by 5.30. The rods were straight out and a handful of bait delivered over each rod. I chose to fish one rod on the gulp red crustacean and the other on squid and liver. I was still setting up when my left hand rod on the squid and ...

In this Blog I would like to introduce you to one of the lakes I go carp fishing on. It’s a small reservoir that was dug many years ago to build the old local hospital. There are lots of Lilly pads and over hanging tree, with not too many swims. It’s so peaceful & quiet there, at the shallow end there is a nice area of Norfolk reeds. You cannot fail to find fish held up in the reeds at any time of the year, even when there is snow on the ground & ice on ...

Finding fish and breaking PB’s Now I’m all up for helping youngsters enjoy our passion for chasing and trying to out whit those scaley beasts we spend so much of our time following, so when I found a day free I managed to take my cousins son fishing at a local lake. Now this lake used to be home to some stunning carp but after the Golf Club owners decided to back fill it, completely change the look of the lake and some of the bigger residents went walkies I was a little du...
