    Hi Ian,

    We fished the 4 islands on Saturday mate, ( the one with Larry T Pots red cloud) and it fished well to say a lot of cold water had gone in. cold wind chill as well mate which knocked them off. Nine of us fished a knock up, 59lb won it on paste peg 18. 56lb second on maggot and mainly meat to far bank peg 23, 40lb third with maggot, and paste peg 22. The water levels are still down quite drastic, but the Canal is fishing its head off mate, still plenty of time for the level to come back a bit till your match. We have a match on the Old Lake on the 28th of April and will let you know how things are doing on the Canal. Mainly Carp some odd Chub used to be some Barbel in there but only a few showing know. By the time you fish it will have warmed up a bit so pellet, paste, corn, meat. Down the track will be the option mate if the water level does not increase, normal water levels you can get some shallow to far bank, it doesn't really fish well in the margins on our matches as we are usually peg 2 peg, so top two and two, if you draw 11 or 17 the corner pegs fish right over, 24 down to 30 are good pegs, not many good weights come of 12 -16, 17-24 can fish very well and 1-5 can kick up a good weight. This winter the Canal has been fishing it's head off mate. Are you going on the Big Bash at Lindholme on the 9th of May, only Toby the Ballif from Portland will be there. Will keep you posted on any news Ian.
    Regards Billy Boy :)
