      Fished on the club lodge at Bradshaw, Bolton.Small water 10 pegs ,depth of water 6ft to 18 inch, unspoilt . Good head of crucians , skimmers bream, carp.

      Oh. and you can buy a pint 100 metres from peg to bar, bliss!

        this may not work but try making some ground bait up before the match or you you get to the lake (if your allowed some lakes do not accept ground bait), before setting up to fish chuck a ball of bait roughly where your going to fish and this method may attract more fish!

          Thanks mate. groundbait is allowed but in small amounts. what type is best at this time of year?
          was thinking of pure breadcrumb, what do you think?

            welcome to the site rush
            Practising for matches is rarely any good because places fish different in matches, It's only any good for looking at the lake and making a few rigs

              Try something with a bit of fishmeal in it, plain brown crumb will not work as well, at this time of year you want something with a bit of feed content in it - the best bit of advice would be to try asking in the local tackle shop if anyone knows the particular lake well and what works down there, that will be the quickest route to increasing your catch!

              Hope you enjoy the site, and post some questions - it will bring you bigger catches!

                      Hi Gary, Dynamite Baits green swimstim groundbait would be a good one to get you started with. You can also make paste with it and it's dead easy to mix just by varying the amount of water you add to it.
