Can anyone tell me the best place to try for Bream in Nottingham.I want to fish somewhere where the fish respond well to heavy baiting.I have been told to try the A1 pits near Newark and was wondering what your views on this fishery are.
Thanks

Hi,

You could always try Attenborough Gravel pits there are a lot of bream in there but as always location is the key.

The best areas we have found are either the railway bank of the day ticket pit, or the trent bank.

There are lots of other pits there but many of them i believe are on a season ticket.

Then there is Holme Pierpoint rowing course, you would need to check there is not a regatta on and the place to head for is the side with the hump and fish around there as there are Bream to be had there.

Someone said it was a bit weedy in some pegs.

All in all there are not that many places that you can still fish for Bream traditionally in the Midlands let alone Nottingham.

I went yesterday to Kingsbury and had 3 slabs for 17lbs 8ozs but it didnt fish well at all even on good pegs and previously up until a fortnight ago it had been.

Hope it helps. [:D][;)]

I would ring the bailiff on the a1 pits - and see their website.

I understand that 1 or several lakes where drained and many bream removed some years ago.

Contact no, ( I hope it is right is) 01636 612108

Sutton Lawn Dam fishing its nuts off, just yesterday local angler Hadge Miller had 24 Bream to 4lb, and 5 Tench to 5lb all on method feeder, 50lb bags are common most days, but mid-week best time as week-ends get a bit busy.

River Trent on Victoria Embankment (free fishing) in Nottingham has big shoals of big bream - opposite the blue barge/flats is the local hotspot.

Goach, lake 4 on the A1 pits is where the big bream are. They average 9-10lb with the odd huge fish but its a summer venue and it can be very hard to get on in the summer weekends.
