Had two brilliant days recently on the Middle Lake at Longshaw. On the first day, I had 3 bream about 2lb, a crucian, a load of roach around the 6oz mark, and two tench around three pounds. These all came on pole fished sweetcorn, fishing just over depth. I also had a nice chub of about a pound on maggot. Also had a carp at 7lb and three further tench around 3lb on ledger fished chick pea.

On the second day I had fewer fish but still a good day. This time the chick pea brought a 6lb carp and a couple of tench. Also had a tench on bread flake. The sweetcorn and pole produced loads of roach, this time they were bigger, with 6 or 7 being around the 1lb mark. Also had 3 small bream and one of about 3 and a half. Maggot produced the odd better roach but caught about 10 tiddlers on it too.

The bigger carp are in there too...I saw one cruising about in front of me at about 15lb but he wasnt feeding. Can't recommend it highly enough, they have a lodge selling maggots, worms, corn and chick peas too. The guys who run it are very friendly, as were the locals. Never fished there before so it was good to be able to ask the regulars for advice - and it worked!

Yeah I'll drop you a line next time I'm going down there. I was fishing the spot at the end of the causeway between the two lakes, in the corner. I found that I was hardly getting a touch on the float when using 5lb line, I had to drop right down to 1.7lb stuff to get em going. I thought about trying worms but never did, I'll take some with me next time.

I fish longshaw as much as I can, its my favorite stillwater,
I have found pink or red maggot to be a top bait for the roach with brandling sorting out the bigger specimens, corn works well for the crucians and tench with crust a close second
the owners are top geezers allways ask before setting up and they will guide you to the hot spots,
there are roach to 3 pound in the water with plenty of 2 pounders,I have had crucian to over 3 pound and tench to over four
I found the trick is to bait up with a bread/hemp mix first, you dont need a massive amount, a kilo is too much and then just a little loose feed, maggot or corn every half hour or so two catty pouches is about right, this keeps the roach feeding well and in your swim. do not overfed as it will kill off the takes
I normally fish about six inches overdepth with a 12 or 14 hook to a 4bb waggler on 4lb line with a number 4 or 6 shot as the tell tale
you wont do wrong over at long shaw nice place and no numpties!



why are the next pegs to me vacant?
