I've been sea fishing for years and really enjoying lure fishing but I'm getting a bit fed up of the long drives to find water that is suitable. So I thought I would try going for Perch or Pike or other species locally. Any advice on good places to fish would be welcome including which ones need a day ticket. I'm happy to drive around the Somerset, Wiltshire & Gloucester area as well

Not an area I know well at all but I’d say the Kennet and Avon canal would be worth a go, the one time I fished it me and my dad had multiple 2 pound plus perch. Was bait fishing but no reason you wouldn’t get them on lures as well.

thanks Silverfish, I'll take a look. I spent my youth in the 80s fishing on the Rochdale Canal, but I bet there's not as many shopping trolleys in this one

Kennet & Avon Canal is a superb venue for lure fishing. Kopyto, Fox Rage, Berkley etc. etc
Pewsey through to Little Bedwyn. A lot of boats in the summer, very quiet in the Winter months .
Tickets on line from MDAA. £6.
Hope this helps?
Buck.
