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.
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.
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.
Hi there is some really big bream in belvior castle in the second lake going up to 8lb and if you just want to catch bream take a trip up to codnor park its full of them they have open matches on wednesdays and sundays.
