Last week l published about Andy pilingers catch and he came again the next day and more or less replicated the session with 18 carp up to approx 8lbs all on floating crust to the dead reed bed it’s the way he always fishes winter or summer and has constant good results.(he’s experienced and very good at it)
Ruby fished well today with five anglers all having mixed bags in the 20 to 30lb range.
Two-night anglers on Jade done well last night with 10 carp between them with doubles the biggest 15lbs
and two-day anglers fishing the point had constant action all day with stacks of bream and skimmers and several good carp with a pole.
George and Mel from Manchester had good fishing with a session on Jade producing once again a lot of bream skimmers and carp and today George on emerald and Mel on sapphire both catching a total weight of over 60lbs each.
All in all a good week and with the days getting longer and warmer the prospects for the coming weeks and months looking very good.

18th February

Andy and Charlie fishing on Jade today. Had a great day (as you can see from the great smiles). Caught 10 carp 4-5lb, 1 carp 9lb, 1 carp 11lb and the last carp 16lb. Also, caught loads of skimmers🎣

20th February

Just a quick report l was talking to one of our holiday makers staying on site with us and he fished Ruby yesterday which is generally smaller fish and he had a lot of skimmers but nudging a pound and half which are becoming proper bream he also had carp topped with one weighed at 12 and half pounds he tried to find me to see if l wanted to move it because of its size but couldn’t find me and it went back into Ruby he said it was pristine and appeared to have never been caught before l’ve know him for years and l believe what he says to be true he’s a angler that’s been fishing a long time and is a genuine person so fishing Ruby watch your poles.(and rods)

21st February

A warm spring like day Jade catching loads of skimmers and both anglers had several nice carp l’m not sure on the sizes 
An angler staying on site fished Jade yesterday and had seven carp all doubles pictures to follow.
Bristols phill terry fished top of the car park on emerald not a particular popular or easy peg and had the best days silver fishing he’d ever had with a weight in excess of 40lbs his words not mine and he only fished until 3.30 he also had a similar weight of carp once again in excess of 40lbs.
His fishing mate cliff fished on peg one of emerald and also had consistent action all day on skimmers and a good bag of carp hopefully the weather forecast will be right and the water will warm up and this weekend should produce good fishing.
There’s lots of fish showing on all the pools today with some good size ones cruising around on the surface especially on Jade all they need is someone to sling a floating crust in front of them as there going to be looking for food more at the moment until the natural food wakes up it could be a opportunity to get some better fish as you can identify there size more easily and try to avoid the smaller ones.

23rd February 2019

Bristol’s Andy Pillinger fished 2 days ago and only managed 6 carp on floating crust. However, today same tactics with floating crust he caught 38 carp with a weight of a 150lb. Just goes to show day to day fishing varies. Floating crust seems to be a definite working bait at the moment. One night angler tonight will report tomorrow on his catch🎣
