Yes, i went to Bestwood ponds.
I only live a few miles from them and never fished them before so thought
i would take a look. icon_smile.gif
The tackle shop said to me that i will need a key, now does this key fit all
the fishing Locations or just Bestwood ponds.
the key fit`s all nott`s aa gate`s bestwood,strelly, attenbourgh,kirk hallem,shelford hams,kings mill and clipston. bestwood duck ponds look great loads of fish but also loads of natrual bait blood worm and crayfish by the bucket loads by the way i live in bulwell myself
there is loads of fish but like i say their`s also loads of natural food pond 1 is the best stocked pond 2 is the carp pond upper 20`s but loads of pike great for winter pond 3 bream and roach pond 4
is better rudd tench and roach pond 5 was the trout pond but they don`t stock them anymore
if you fish pond 1 fish the road side the first 10 pegs have sunken tyres at 8 meters plus loads of lillies don`t feed to these features because the fish are allready there a single hook bait will get you bite`s caster or worm is good there. avoid groundbait because the natural bait that`s there hold`s them anyway pond 2 to the island or the margins meat or bolies over pellets is a good mathod for the carp dead baits for the pike over blood pellets (used for trout)
could you give me some advice on what pound line to use and what size hook and maybe what type of float.
I wouldn't mind trying for tench.
I don't want to go for carp as i haven't got carp gear at all.
