AJ's Lake

Match & Pleasure

Layout

The depth of the lake reaches 5.5ft-6ft at the deepest points. Margins can vary from peg to peg but can be anywhere from 12"-30".  Ledges and shelves around the margins can be anywhere from 2ft out onwards, some of the best shelves are at around 10m and can present bait very well on a pole line.

Baits

6/8mm Feed Pellet banded and loose fed  would be the best all-rounder great for carp (pole, wag, feeder). Groundbait is  great all year long for a mix of fish. Chopped worm & Caster is awesome for Bream, Crucian, and Ide. Maggot's a good all-rounder for bit bashing and the odd surprise.

Species

Common Carp, Mirror Carp, Ghost Carp, Crucian Carp, Bream, Roach, Ide, Perch, Tench, Grass Carp, Gudgeon

Methods

In order of anglers appeal rather than best method would be;  

Waggler towards the islands - perfect warm weather fishing combined with a good breeze.

Bomb or method feeder towards the island - safe bet all year round.

5-13 metre pole lines straight out in front off the shelf or shallow in open water.

Margins top 2+2 - can produce all year round but best in warmer weather.

 

Hosker's Snake Lake

Match & Pleasure 

Species

Mirror Carp, Common Carp, Grass Carp, Crucian Carp, Bream, Ide, Tench, Roach, Orfe

Layout

The lake is around 5ft deep at the middle or deepest part with the margin ranging anywhere from 12"-24". The island that runs down the middle of Hoskers is anything from 10m-14m away from the pegs.

Methods

Most anglers will set up 2 or 3 lines.

  • Island line fishing on or just off the shelf from the island

  • Inside margin line either left or right

  • Midway, fishing shallow

Baits

  • Pellet

  • Worm & Caster

  • Remember there is no groundbait allowed on hoskers, but swapping your usual mix for micro pellet will be just as effective.
