Nothing extra about bait bans in the Guide Book - so tigers are OK I reckon.

now i can't help you there G - and to be honest not sure if any south bailiffs get on here - if you need to know how busy it is typically I'd give yac a call on 01252 861 955 and ask them....i'm sure they'll help you out.

Can anyone give me any tips on the South Lake? Going down there for a week in a couple of week's time and we did the same last year with little success apart from a couple off the top? Any tips on where to try and what to try for fishing on the bottom?

On the south lake many tactics work.
If you are planning to use boilies as freebies i wouldnt use to many as the fish seem to shy away from big beds of boilies.
The fish are most of the time spread out all over the lake so being on fish isnt to much of a problem if it is busy, but location is always important on any lake. So i would advise a good walk around the lake. Most of the bailiffs (probably all) are a really good source of information. The first two islands always hold fish, getting tight to the snags in the middle of the two islands is the key (locked up on a tight line), These can be fished from swim 2(The car park) and 13(The boss). The margins produce well. Apart from when fishing to the snags id definately advise slack lines.
Ive fished the south lake a few times this spring/summer landing carp upto a common of 20lb 8oz.
Good luck, catch a few and let us know how u get on.

Cheers Justin,
Appreciate the advice and think I'm going to opt for slack lines with leadcore leader,semi-fixed leads and blowout ring rigs.....might give the method a bash whilst I'm there as the guys in Yateley shop said it might be worth a go?

I'll let you know how I get on...... http://www.rmcangling.co.uk/forum/images/graemlins/wink.gif

I'll be there from Monday through to Saturday...Can't wait to get out of this office!!!! http://www.rmcangling.co.uk/forum/images/graemlins/frown.gif

Alright Beanie,

When you get there make sure you have a word with the bailifs... they're top, helpful blokes who know every inch of the lake and are happy to give you all the help &amp; pointers you need.

A load of us just took it over for the weekend and we found it to be an exceptionally well run &amp; well looked after day ticket fishery... very rare now days!

Thanks to all at RMC for lettin us use the lake http://www.rmcangling.co.uk/forum/images/graemlins/cool.gif http://www.rmcangling.co.uk/forum/images/graemlins/wink.gif

Hi All,
Well we were in the Garden Gate swim from Monday to yesterday and banked 17 carp to 24.12, 3 Tench to 5.10 and a couple of 1.8 roach!!!!

Not a spot of rain all week and most runs came between 2-4.30am although we caught fish throughout the day really, despite the hot conditions. Had two out off the top on bread and chums......Only trouble is tomorrow I'm back to the office http://www.rmcangling.co.uk/forum/images/graemlins/frown.gif

Hey ho.........
