  1. been down with a marker float and cast it out in a few fishable areas..... but even at 15 foot down it was getting clogged up with weed.... how do u stop the ring getting jammed?
  2. no they have no bait bans or bait specs.... you can use whatever you like...... definatly over stocked.... all day the whole water surface was fizzing with bubbles.... never seen anything quite like it.... i fished with 2 rods but ended up taking the second out after a few hours.... after i landed 40+ fish i was getting bored and pretty [censored]ed off with the state of the mouths.... so at 3pm i left all the damage apart from one fish (which had a snapped pectoral fin) were damaged in the mouth... when i went for a look around a few days before there were a few gypos fishin with mickey mouse style gear.... its a shame that the owner doesnt give a toss about her fish
  3. thanks for the advice.... going to start feeding them some halibut pellets uploaded these photos to show you what im up against BEFORE IT FLOODED As you can just see there is a long(3/4 mile) thin (150yards) trench this was very deep 15 feet in the margins with a shelf going to 25feet+ AFTER IT FLOODED Now you can see just how much it has flooded.... the actual water level has rising by 15-20 feet..... and the whole right hand side and top side of the lake is totaly un fishable apart from a small section in the right corner[/img]
  4. willow bank definatly DOES allow night fishing....that link must be old or false[/i]
  5. Willow bank fisheries near s(censored)horpe, north lincs ... carp up to 35lb in all 3 lakes.. and catfish up to 70lb in 2 of the lakes.... i think its quite expensive though.... 30+ for a night session google "willow bank kirton" i think its quite an easy water, coz my mate caught a few fish and he is just a "cast onto the horizon and hope" kind of angler... so if your good at watercraft you should get them going.. .....although matt hayes fished here overnight on "the great rod race" for the cats and caught nothing.... ha Edited to remove swearing. This is not allowed in any form, please don't do it again. Stoogi.
  6. ahh.... after reading that... it sounds that a lot of the damage could be caused by joker anglers dragging the fish out the water and barbless hooks as they move around the mouth ..... it does sound like the same damage
  7. yea i would be happy if i caught one fish from here.... its very clear and all the carp are 30-40 years old!! so all of em should be fighting fit monsters
  8. The nest, Winteringham, North Lincs I got told about this place and that it was fishing well They wernt wrong.... i must have had 40 fish on the bank in 6 hours......i ended up taking my second rod out of the water!! but 99% of the fish i caught were in a horriffic condition mouths deformed, ripped, lips missing, one even had its pectoral snapped in half ... sort of hanging on by a thread.... its was a massive shame, every time i got the fishes head out the water the first thing i was stuck by was ther terrible mouths....kind of upsetting really ....ive fished quite a few day ticket waters but never seen anything like this. Is there any way of the environment agency forcing the owner to have a barbless hooks only rule (i was pretty shocked that this grossly over-stocked day ticket venue didnt have one already) coz im sure its cowboy anlglers using barbed hooks thats causing this?????????? i absoluty hated seeing the fish like this and would urge anyone NOT to go there and support the place
  9. no but ive tryed coiling it in a mug ..... it just seems to wrap its self around itself....... could it be because im using light mono line? are you supposed to use a stiffer hooklink for zigs
  10. Always put the welfare of the fish before anything else ..... make sure the rig is safe.... read up on safety clips and safety leads
  11. How do you cast a zig when the hook legnth is 12ft ?? ive tryed the method of coiling it around something circular and casting and ive tryed using pva tape but every time i reel it in its a mess! please help
  12. Cheers mate..... and hello everybody... im sick of fishing over-stocked over-fished day ticket waters and here in north lincs there are very few decent syndicates (well ones that i know about any way)..... .... so im up for the challenge
  13. Just up the road from me is an old huge open-cast iron ore mine... very deep (over 50ft+ in places) which used to be a day ticket water.... ....one of the best days fishing i had as a youngster was here, fishing the slider float in the margins (which were 15 feet deep!!!) and catching lots of big tench all through the morning.... but about 10 years ago lake flooded onto the farmers field and has the water level came up by about 15 feet and has remained at this level since.... so all the pegs and areas that used to be fished are all 300 yards across what was the field... there is however one spot (off what used to be a cliff) that looked quite deep.... 2 years ago i fished this spot hoping for these tench.... and as i was fishing i saw a massive carp swim past my feet.... definatly a 30+ and this is what kinda got me into carp fishing..... .... now im going to attempt this venue for the carp i know that nobody fishes it but what sort of baits would work on such a water where natural food will be high and where the fish will have never seen a pellet or boilie? and the sheer size of the water and the fact that you cannot yet to the bank side in many places (due to cliff faces covered in thick trees) mean that many areas of the lake are totally un-fishable basicaly where do i start??? anyone else fished this kind of unknown before?
