well I am off work for the week 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.
