  1. All your replies are helping guys atm . We have had a few bad experiences trying new places which has always brought us back to our fave place about 30 mins from home . To be honest we are grateful for any fish on a day session , be nice to go where we have a good chance of banking some high doubles maybe low 20's to beat our pb's , but then as u may of seen from the pics section any carp we land puts a smile on our face lol
  2. Thanks for all the replys , too be honest we just fancy a change of scenery . We haven't fished many open water places , mainly islands and smaller commercials . We did try barston as its right around the corner from lavender hall , but the day was just so wrong driving rain super cold and uneventful , so would like to go back . We just haven't open water fished and as yet dont have marker floats or spod , however just got a new bait boat . I keep going on fisheries.co.UK and trawling through them and just haven't settled on one . We also went to hollyhurst and caught a few last year but no toilets for us lasses and almost got shot by farmers who were practically shooting at anything that moved . We gave pool hall a call and I spoke to the owner who said the runs and the spec lake have all been knocked into one again now and the dam has been fixed and sorted . We just don't kno , we have three days to fish next week . Would like to try riddins asas mentioned don't mind smaller venues that said we like a place with a good ish chance at catching . I don't mind putting the work in either to put a few on the bank but am desperate to beat 21lb lol and Sarah is trying to beat 18lb . Anymore places u can think of let us kno , were halesowen based and can travel 45 mins but don't fish over nite just day sessions Thanks Laws n sar
  3. were from halesowen and normally drive about half hour to lavender hall as its our fave place , but we want to try a few new places out we like the look of riddings and also Pool Hall . have checked some reviews out for pool hall and a few years ago they were abit hit and miss after they split the lake however that was 2 years ago . We like the idea of the runs water there and the fact it has a speccy lake . Was riddings nice ? we also wanna be able to try our new bait boat out and some places dont allow it . any other suggestions ? thanks Laws
  4. I have been given a list of places to try fishing when we went to fosters of birmingham today i wondered if any of you guys had fished them and can shed some light on them : Earlswood lakes (which lake for good big carp / runs ) Drayton reservior Riddings speccy lake Pool Hall in trescot Kingsbury water park I have had a look at the riddings place online but cant find anywhere that sheds light on their rules . Earlswood im unsure of which lake is ok and the others i havent heard of . Any help much appreciated thanks Law
  5. Ugh I have been researching baitboats and im now totally stuck . Any ideas which one is best ? ideally wanting to be spending around 300-450 max cheaper if we can . Any advice would be great , thanks
  6. Thanks for all the comments we haven't really had anyone teach us , mainly trial and error and online research and of course getting ourselves on the bank . We are mastering our own rig tying altho I have decided I hate shrink tube as my kettle spout is waaay to big to concentrate the steam , grr ! Lol
  7. I hope the thread doesnt turn into wildmoor bashing , as the place was great and not at all how people have reported . Just wanted to post some of the lovely fishes we have caught
  8. thanks guys , we love fishing and cant wait to try townparks fishery devon next week . We fished the smaller lake at wildmoor , when u book you get the place to yourself , we plan to try the bigger lake next time i will dig for some more pics of the lake we fished
  9. laws

    41lb pb

    well done mate!! where was this from ? Great fish and fab write up! i have got my 20lb target now i need to up to to a 25lber and one day maybe a big un like this will grace my net
  10. So we havent fished too much of late , had a trip to Wildmoor waters in may and have to see it was brilliant and despite the bad press the place is jam packed with carp we got showed around and they were all basking on both lakes . We did have to contend with really hot weather which meant we had to go out and buy aload of decent float gear , then nicked some gorgeous fish off the top . We went monday afternoon and stayed till 10 on the friday however they began to spawn on the thursday which made it impossible! Heres some Wildmoor pics Last week we went back to our fave place Lavender hall and the weather conditions were perfect not too hot nor too cold and they were hammering the cell! The weights went from 7.5lb , a couple of tens , an 11lb , a couple of 13lbs and the last pics is an 18lb fish that seemed very old and bashed around!
  11. thanks for your replies guys , we didnt manage to settle on a new place for last thursday so went over to lavander hall again and had a cracking day , will add some pics in the pics section . Planning on going down to devon to visit family next week and plan on fishing town park fisheries near totnes , has anyone heard of it ? Will bear all your suggestions in mind and go and have a look at a few for sure
  12. Looking for a new place to go around the birmingham surrounding area's . We normally fish lavender hall or alvechurch fisheries , have tried hollyhurst lakes and barston . Any other places ? we like to fish boilies and have two rods , some places are restrictive in terms of rules and dont allow bolies or two rods . Looking to beat personal bests of 20.5lb , any help would be great , ta Laura
  13. We fished lavender hall thursday i got a 14 out and lost one last min and sarah had four good runs but nothin on the end . Hopefully will be going bk in a few weeks as i love the place will post a pic of the catch in abit x
  14. Thanks marty , what i meant was focus on bait presentation etc , we have caught well but have never paid much attention to rig presentation before so wanted to see if i can make it better i suppose . However i do like to keep it simple
  15. Thanks mate , theres alot i want to learn , at the min my rigs are simple but seem to be catchin well but think this year i wanna play about abit more with rigs and rig presentation . And also find some new places to go around brum , warwick and coventry areas
  16. Now dont make me get the mallet out ! Lol .
  17. No not the ironing but on a sunny day i string line between tree's n dry the washing
  18. Yeah mate no worries , we need to call them first as last time we went they only had six pegs open on station due to water levels being so low due to a leak . We normally like to fish peg 1 i think which was closed last time . Hoping it will be better by thursday , we are planning for tues or thurs
  19. Hey ross , yeah i didnt really stick weights up as i dont think u can tell by looking and i didnt want to get the whole "that doesnt look that weight " and " are you sure that weighs that etc" My pb was 21 and it was me in the biker jacket 6th pic down in the second lot of pics . Then the fist pic of me with the biig un was 19 , but looks bigger than the 21 if u kno what i mean . Sarahs biggest was 17.5 lb and was in the second lot of pics with the baseball cap on . Most the fish ranged from 10-19 lbs . Hoping to go fish lavender hall and alvechurch next week , may even go back to barston lakes as we went 2 weeks ago and just got soaked in that down pour from 6am till about 12 before we squelched back home and dried off lol!
  20. thanks guys , nothing beats a day on the bank to be honest we havent fished since before christmas as we have been so busy but cant wait to get out there for 2 days next week . sirblanksalot : next fish i catch will be dedicated to u haha! managed to find these pics from last year also , hope u dont mind me sticking them up
  21. thanks mate do u fish there very often ? Im trying to route around to find the pics from alvechurch we got some nice ones from there also . Planning on going to both fisheries next week at some point woop !
