First session, which lake?

Postby browning27 » Wed May 07, 2014 9:13 pm

Hi all, new to the forum/club, looking to do my 1st session on Saturday. Will be fishing on pole and method feeder, what lake would be best to visit? Preferably one that's not too busy, looking at Bradley Green, Alvechurch, swan or skilts? Any recommendations would be appreciated.
Thanks
James

All good choices but swan is not realy suitable for feeder fishing as its long and narrow.
Bradley green has the highest stocking density and responds to most methods esp margins but feeder tactics will also take a share of fish but it"s realy carp carp and more carp.
Skilts is a good mixed fishery that tends to be quiet because of the trek from the car park to the pool but can be rewarding.
Carp are the main target on matches at Alvechurch but there are other species for the pleasure angler and with 2 pools to chose from it"s rarely a struggle for a peg.
Whatever you decide on,have a good day and post on here how you got on.
Regards Peter.

James,the carp probably average 3/4lb but plenty of bigger fish into double figures.
