user tips


"prawn or shrimp is a good bait generally"

" I tend to do float fishing to catch my fish unless conditions are windy where I would fish on the bottom at this premises. I have always fished here and had good and bad days. It is said that prawn or shrimp is a good bait generally, but dog biscuits get the carp munching on the surface without a doubt. Dough balls are a general good bait and fishing the whole day with dough balls will ensure you catch at least something (carp, bream, roach or the odd chub, though I have never caught one). Maggots and worms (supplied on the premises) are a great ammunition to tackle the fish, you would certainly end up with something (even if it means going to the pond just to the left of lake 2 where there are now carp up to approximately 5lb). The river is great for maggot fishing because you would never know what you would get in that river. I have seen some carp on the surface in it and caught a pound and a half perch which was quite a nice surprise! At Frant lakes, I would recommend dog biscuits for carp, and big pedigree mixer biscuits might be the most expensive but float a long time. Bread is great for a multiple of species and maggot is too. Worm is likely to hook you a perch and sweetcorn is almost destined to attract skimmer bream. Bream on this premises are not particularly large and still have very distinguishable silver scales to indicate they are juvenile. If float fishing, I would recommend fishing 7ft out or tucking your float into foliage. As a warning, the larger and more targeted fish are very timid and catching fish on the surface will require many biscuits on the surface, to get the fish into a feeding frenzy. Another warning is not be fooled, these fish are smart and realise that when the premises closes at 19:00 or around that time, the fish will munch like there is no day tomorrow at 18:30. It is like it is dinner time for them. As I have said before, I prefer to float fish unless conditions force me not to, so these tips are mostly aimed at those who prefer to float fish as well..".
