Down there for the first time in a couple of weeks, i've got the message about slack lines and easy on the bait, but,wondered what the stock is other than carp?

Is there a lot of silver fish, am i gonna get plagued if i take small baits??

02-04-2003, 13:05
No u wont get plagued mate..the sliver fish are yet to even pick up a single bait of the clans. no nibble on the baits either..but then they were never in the water long enough to get eaten by anything other than the carp http://www.rmcangling.co.uk/forum/images/graemlins/smile.gif
Cash once claimed he had hell n all trouble with small silver fish..?? god knows what he was using..pinkies i think

When I fished there in September...silver fish were a nusiance....small skimmers wolfing 14mm boilies and pellet hookbaits....just ask Mike Lyddon.
Still it makes the buzzers go...

For anyone who's interested a 27.5 lb common was caught from the point swim yesterday. Probably the biggest common in there.

Martin...wasn't a 30lb+ common taken last year?

In answer to my own question.................no... http://www.rmcangling.co.uk/forum/images/graemlins/grin.gif

Last May.....is it the same fish? (http://www.rmcangling.co.uk/news/pages.phtml?CAT=1&ID=412)

Well done Smarts, yesterdays fish was probably another of the small number of commons in there. I didn't see it personally.

is that the one where hes standing up.........thats just not carp fishing .....

10-04-2003, 09:02
Or could it be this one I had last year at 25....now at a better weight? Pad common (http://www.rmcangling.co.uk/images/uploads/bovis_pads3.jpg)

Fairly destinguishable scale pattern if so....?

Blimey, if that is "Smudge" at 27lb+ thats some growth. She was 20lb odd when i had her2/3 years ago.
Testimont to a well managed / run venue.

it's not smudge it's the common that matey caught from the pads and he's stood up 4 the photos and the mirror was 26-6 not 27 as my brother said
