Going here tomorrow to put a deadbait or two out and perhaps chuck a lure about if anyone else up for some Piking? :D

It's in Nottinghamshire for anyone concerned with Tiers, but closer to Melton.

It's day ticket and been informed it's about a fiver *if* the bailiff comes along.

I looked at the weather yesterday and said 1C overnight, but low and behold it was -2C when I stuck my nose out.

Think I need to invest in some sort of heavy weight and length of rope for ice breaking 🤔
