well I am off work for the week[:D] so had a visit to gone fishing at platt bridge not fished it much apart from the odd winter match. weather was bad very very windy and pretty cold in general. fished from 11am to 4pm on the pole at only 11m due to wind on peg34 bait was micro pellets and 4mm Ringers cool water expanders on the hook. 25 minutes until the first bite and fish on a 4lb carp. Missed loads of bites all day but the total catch was 22 carp around the 1-2 pound mark and 1 carp at 8lb 4oz plus 2 bonus tench weighed the biggest at 6lb 2oz and at least 30 skimmers around 6oz not a bad days sport for 4 would recommend if you live in the wigan area.

peg 24 is the dolly peg on there according to the regulars best bait in order are pellet corn meat and if all else fails maggot but you get loads of small stuff if you go on maggot. take a tip/bomb rod and fish to features and reed beds. can be hard going on there don't overfeed you will kill your swim. Tight lines[:)]

From macdonalds in platt bridge head towards wigan. Go under railway bridge, cricket club on right, take 1st turn left ( if you get to widdows you've gone too far ) down dirt track and through the field and under the bridge. Carry on till you get to the fishery.
