MOLANDS Still fishing quite hard with spawning going on early in the morning but catches improved as the week went on. In matches nets to 120lb were best and the biggest carp reported was 23lb 8oz. Worm and caster on the pole at 13 meters or down the margins have been the most consistent match tactics and the carp anglers have caught a few off the top on oily floaters or dog biscuit and on the bottom with tuna or fish flavoured boilies. Best areas have been peg numbers 8 – 15, 19 – 29 and 54 – 60
GEARYS Fished steady with more signs of fish spawing through the week and match weights to around 80lb with decent back up catches were caught from all around the pool Bomb with pellet, method to the middle stumps, mugging on the pole and corn or dead maggot down the margins have all been working well. The carp anglers have caught off the top with floaters and boilies fished with a PVA bag on the bottom.
LITTLE GEARYS We had the Guru festival on through the week and the fishing got better as the week wore on. Match weights to 150lb + made up of mainly f1s with the bottom end from pegs 13 -25 the best area . Caster fished shallow and meat or worm down the margins have been the top tactics at the moment.
ANNIVERSARIES Steady but not spectacular with weights to 50lb this week. F1s to 5lb, carp to 10lb and ide to 2lb have been caught. Pole fished caster, pellet shallow and on the deck have been the top tactics but meat, corn or worm are also worth a try.
GRATUITIES In decent form this week with plenty of carp being caught up to double figures and smaller F1s. Crucians and skimmers also showing well. Hard pellet or expander on the pole has worked best for mixed catches to 50lb. Waggler and bomb with 8mm pellet has also been worth a try.
WILLOW Slowed a little but still giving decent sport from F1s and carp. Waggler fished shallow up to the island has been best for the bigger fish and pole fished pellet or caster fished shallow and on the bottom have also caught. Pegs 5 – 10 have been the most prolific pegs.
SIBLINGS A The fish were spawning mid-week and it has certainly made it tough over the last few days. Small F1s to 2lb have been the only fish having a go but the odd carp and silvers are also coming out. Pole fished caster and worm has been the top tactic.
SIBLINGS B The only pool that the F1s are really having a go with nets to over 80lb this week with the end of the pool from pegs 7 – 11 in good form. Caster or pellet fished shallow and worm or meat down the margins has been the best approach.
