Managed a 24 hour session last night with a few of my mates at Old Mill Lakes in Lincolnshire. I have never been to this fishery just heard some good things about some good sized carp on the bank in the lake known as birch this lake has carp including 11 known 30s around 60 20s and a few just under which to me was perfect for a chance at bagging a winter cracker. don’t be fooled thinking this will be an easy water as locals reported to us that to have one fish out of the lake...

 A new year and a new lake to fish, my last two blogs involved me pre-baiting the smaller lake on the complex so that’s where I started. The weather was ok a lot of cloud cover though but it was mild something that  I thought the carp would react to. I decided to go with a mobile approach and fish with one rod, so that I can pounce on any showing fish. I started down at one end of the lake where I saw a lot of bubbles a sure sign as to where the fish were, by the time I had s...

Looking at the weather forecast I must be mad! I got my gear barrowed round and all set up before lunchtime thanks to the help of my slave fellow bailiff, we had taken a walk around the lake earlier and spotted some carp around the island taking a leap out to clear their bodies of slugs and snails, so the island swim it was. The first sign of action was at 21:00 when the middle rod, baited up with a Pineapple Fever bottom bait along with a stringer of chopped boilies, unfortu...

My year has been hectic to say the least, but very kind to me. I’ve had PB Catfish, Chub and nudged my Pike weight up by 8oz’s with this beauty from a famous Reservoir Being chosen to represent GULP! as a Key Opinion Leader and getting invited to join Wychwood as one of the consultants has made this year very special and I am truly grateful. In the 80’s and 90’s I used Owner hooks for my Carp and Pike fishing but they became hard to get hold of and in the end I move...

The weather is still playing havoc, strong winds and rain means its grim out on the mud, I don’t think I can ever remember a session on the Orient when there have been so many southerly winds and a complete lack of winds from the north. Not that I’m complaining it keeps things mild and makes a change from the 2007 and 2009 sessions when it seemed the only wind came from the north. A small gap in the weather meant I could just redo all the rods, I think I have mentioned be...

As I was packing the car the wind was really gaining strength as the low pressure moved in again. Then the rain started to hammer the tackle room door, looks like good conditions for a bite. The car was moving around in the wind as I wound my way through Cheshire to Shropshire. Unlocking the gate, the noise was loud as the wind rushed through the trees it was more like an express train. Leaves where dancing on the wind; highlighted in my headlights, like they had a mind of...

After the last session and managing to snare a winter fish, I thought I would return to the same area of the lake and see if I could repeat the process and catch another. On arrival at the lake it was devoid of anglers; not a good sign, I walked the banks looking at the water for any clues. It was flat calm with some thin ice in the margin; the car display had registered minus 4 as I drove down the lane through the fields. The sky was blue and the sun was starting to show ...

  On a recent perch hunt, we targeted a tiny, over-grown lake that once produced fish to over four pounds. I hasten to add; this was over thirty years ago! Looking at the water, I doubt if many have fished it between then and now! Northern Ireland is littered with these small ponds, mostly old Flax ponds that supplied the Irish Linen industry. Many are alive with fish, and relatively un-explored. Eventually we found a small clearing that allowed two anglers to cas...

FishabilLakes(November Session) http://www.lakefishabil.com/ Fishing in November is always a challenging prospect in the UK and the weather can play a major part in our results.  However I had just had the phone call from good friend of mine Ellis Brazier (Shropshire’s Fireman of the year pin-up 2011-12) about a trip out to Fishabil Lake in France.  Memories started to flood back of times when this great lake had been at the forefront of the carp scene but had dropped o...
