hiya lads,i have been to one of my local coarse fishing ponds,watermill farm, i used to carp rods both on the same rigs as i use at fish pond farm,the only thing i did different was i used a groundbait feeder instead of a lead.the only bait that i put out was the breadcrumb and corn in the feeder.i only had one.it was about 6lb,i did not bother takeing a pic as it was in bad condition.

 

ths swim i fished.

Another quick tip for you mate, if the red spots are where you are fishing to from the swim you are taking the picture from, you should try and point your rods more towards the spots. Works wonders for indication and may get you an extra fish or two onto the bank :mrgreen:

fish pond farm has thawed out, i have just spoke to the owner (john) and he said its finaly thawed out so i have booked a day on monday. he said no one has fished it sinse 2 week befor xmas and there has been no bait put in.

 

how should i fish it??? should i do what i was doing last year, fake corn over a small bed of spod mix or should i use fake corn with single pva bags and not spod mix???

Well although there has been no bait put in, i wouldnt recommend spodding, too much of a risk, last thing you want to do is put them off. Small pva bags should be fine enough.
