  • Finding a clear area, free from weed in the fishing lake can help.
  • Boilies, fed little and often, fished with a ‘snowman’ with a bright topper is always a good start.
  • Another good bait for Tench is sweetcorn.
  • Rudd Lake is a ‘cracking lake’ with a good head of Carp that aren’t shy feeders; with a handful of ground bait over your hook bait it won’t be long before you will be catching fish.
  • Another good way to catch some nice Carp is feeder fishing using ground bait over a hook bait of 10mm boilies is good for catching Carp, Bream and Tench.
  • Again, feeding boilies while spodding hemp and maize is very productive. We’ve found that pink pop-up boilies work well
  • For smaller fish like Roach, Perch, Rudd and Bream, maggots and small pellets work well.
