A question for any of you who have fished the South Lake at Yateley.... have you any idea if the good perch & pike stocks are still in this lake, if so have any of you fished for or caught any this year?

A m8 from yorkshire was down recently and

"hooked a total of ten fish. I banked eight for 18,16,16.5,14,12,12.5,13 and 11pounds. Total of 113 lbs of pike, at about 14
lbs average, in just less than 7 hours"

That was a couple of weekends ago.

We're going piking on there tomorrow so I'll let you know!!

I remember fishing the South Lake just after it opened, and getting pestered by the pike. I hooked about 6 over 2 days, and landed fish to just into doubles.

Tony this has to be the place for the next Pike fish-in,
me thinks?

Went down to South - Lake frozen over - Came back home!!! LOL

There was a bit of free water in the corner just round from the balif swim but that was taken by some guys also after pike from the look of it!!

Might pop back down New Years Day if its not solid again!!

Ditto.... went there this morning and it was solid, ended up at papercourt, ice free as usual and made friends with a pike of about 20lbs I followed around for 4 hours.... clever pike he was... didn't want to know although he did follow my plug in once...... as for a pike fishin, I don't think could be possible Bob as it is a day ticket water and advertised as being open 365 days a year..... up to Ian. Oh yeah is the bailiff always like that??????????? say no more.

So why cant we pay a day ticket and have a whip round for the Charity?
