Well the Trent has filled up again with all the rain so resorting to some commercial piking :confused:

Rycroft in Hemington has a pike lake and will give it a go tomorow with some lures and my new piking reel :love: Fish in it upto 23lbs so i've heard. A bonus Perch or three would be nice too :D

I think it's the lake in below picture unless someone wants to correct me? Never been to it before.

Gotta drop the missus at work so probably won't get there until around 10ish.

That’s the one. Some nice bream and tench in there too.

The one in the middle (??) is the specci lake, 20lb + carp in there.

The one below that (??) is Donno lake, which contains carp and silvers.

If you’re going via the bottom gate, I would venture a trip out to see if you can get to it as the underpass often floods and you might not be able to get through after all the rain we’ve had. There is a top gate in Shardlow which should be OK. Ring Mark the bailiff on 07816 052235 to get best pegs for pike if you can get, good luck.

Completely flooded out, even the trent is really high and can't get my usual route to the trent and mersey canal so gave it up for the day as a bad idea.

Ah well maybe next time :)
