No children allowed-no bivvy brigade-no trout pellets-no floating baits and that's all the rules that i can remember
Peg 1-7 and the pegs opposite no's 1-3 (in the 20's or 30's) are the better pegs.It is where the water runs off the lake.
Barbel close in feed up the bank and hook themselves dead red maggots at the beginning straight into the margin,them a few every 10 minutes or so fish it after an hr just to have a look sometimes they're straight on to the feed.just keep having a look.
6-8 mt there is a drop of to around 5 ft no need to go 14-16 mts the depth is the same further out.Worm and caster worked well for me and I also fished another line fed heavily with micro's fished corn/meat on the hook.( ten to and ten past)
The ten peg horse shoe (great in winter 40-50 lb bags)
Chopped worm /caster it is stuffed with Tench and Chubb to 2lb ( av 8-10 oz)top two only
down the track pellet and corn carp to 8lb
Lots of small F1's tight up against the far bank.(they'll eat anything. lol)
The fish move out as the session gets on you cannot keep the tench and chubb coming on he top two all day you have to follow the fish out.(a bit strange really)
the horse shoe has been done so that you fish top two 3 ft, 3-4 sections 4ft 5-6 sections 5ft then 7-8 sections back upto 4 ft then steps back to 3ft. 16mts at the widest point but mostly 14 mts.
Big double figure carp,bream,skimmers,Ide,roach,Tench,Chubb and barbel in main lake.
Chris who owns the place will peg it out if you ask him to and tell everyone the best way to fish their pegs,he'll even walk around during the match giving tips.
Butty wagon and toilets on site.Great Fella nothings to much trouble for him, His brother Steve Openshaw owns Lingmere lake in Leasowe(moreton) on the wirral and that's well worth a visit.
Good luck hope this helps
