I should be going to Fickle hall Fisheries tomorrow in darwen. Its quite new, stocked november 2001 with carp, tench, roach, ide and pink rudd. there is 4lb tench in there but it will be way to cold for them! Carp are quite small 2lb-5lb, have i got a chance with them? Im using my newly boght pole (8m milo winch) and i thought for baits i could use trout pellets and crushed hemp with maggot as hookbait. Any good? I could use boilies ledgered but is there any point??? thanks

Hi Joe -- I think the first thing would be to check to see if the fishery is frozen or not first..[;)]
Then the best option would be 'fish light' for bites to see if the fish want to feed l would use say 3lb ml and a 2lb bottom to see if the fish are interested with anything from 16 to 22 hook..barbless with pinkie to start...but dont over feed them with freebies otherwise you will kill the swim stone dead mate...ok...
If the fish are feeding maybe you could go up to 5lb ml with 3lb bottom....

Anyway whatever you do tightlines mate.....[:D]

You wont catch by staying at home !!!!!

Thanks. It was worth going just to find out my new pole had a crack in the joint!!! I caught 1 roach im guessing this is because the lakes wer completly frozen over(1 inch thick ice) and i threw a brick on line for 15 minutes to break it!!! Water was bl*dd* freezing and my hands went numb after mixing my groundbait, (which i later found out before i chucked it in was banned!!!) So it wasnt my day and sally the dog was barking at me! Still i was happy with 1 roach
thanks for the tips.
