Record Breaking Match News & Upcoming Events.

Posted by Richard on August 6, 2014 at 1:00 PM Comments comments (0)

 

 

What a week. Fish are everywhere with fishery records being broken.

 

 

Jim Hart after coming back to fishing after a couple of years off fished the mid-week Wednesday match that was held on the Match Lake.

 

 

He drew peg 14 and fished chopped Worm over pellet to land a new lake record of 163lb 12oz.

 

 

2nd was Chris Bradley on peg 22 who got 105lb 12oz then another new comer was George Woodhead from Tenby who got 75lb 8oz to finish third.

 

 

The weekend match was held on the New Canal with Lew Spinks winning with 73lb 12oz. Joint second was Jeff Horner and Dick Brunton both from Pembroke Dock got 69lb each, with Alan Godrich coming 4th after losing a few nice fish at the net. He managed 67lb 8oz.

 

 

All other lakes are fishing very well.

 

 

Anglers are reporting catching lots of fish, but due to a keep net ban in place due to the hot weather. Anglers are unable to record there weights.

 

 

This last week we have stepped up our bailiffing of all lakes to check anglers are using the right tackle. The results have been disappointing with people not using the correct tackle for coarse fishing.

 

 

We have an on site tackle shop with everything you require available to buy or hire.

 

 

This week is our annual fund raising week, where we collect for children’s Cancer Hospital and Cystic Fibrosis. The Tony Smith Memorial Match will be held on the Specimen Lake with a raffle and Saturday afternoon BBQ, There are still two places left for anyone interested.

 

 

Well done to all anglers and until next time, tight lines and all.

Carp Masters & Match Results.

Posted by Richard on July 28, 2014 at 8:15 AM Comments comments (0)

 

 

 

After a hot week with temperatures in the upper 20’s, the fish are feeding well, early mornings and late afternoons and with the mid-day times, you will see the fish moving around, but a little slower to hook.

 

 

 

Last Wednesday’s match for the senior anglers was on the Pleasure Lake with George from Kilgetty getting 104lb 5oz.

 

 

 

2nd was Alan Godrich with 98lb 4oz .

 

 

3rd place was John Charlesworth with 95lb 6oz.

 

 

 

They were catching well on pellet and maggot.

 

 

 

While the Sunday match was on the Canal part of the Big Pit with Peter Williams of Swansea getting 83lb 12oz.

 

 

 

2nd place was Paul Davies with 63lb 6oz and trailing close behind in third place Alan Godrich with 53lb 9oz.

 

 

 

Weekend before last saw the Welsh Carp Masters qualifiers held on the Specimen Lake with 10 pairs of anglers travelling from all over the country.

 

 

 

There were Twenty Six fish caught in total.

 

 

 

The winning pair was John Flewin and Ethan Thomas, fishing off the Island Swim to catch nine fish using Innovate baits.

 

 

 

2nd place went to John Cooper and Dafydd Gould on peg 10, The Trees to land four fish for 78lb 14oz using Pro Bait.

 

 

 

We would like to thank the Marshals for doing a good job in the organisation of the event.

 

 

 

I myself have had the first chance in five months to get in a few sessions on the Specimen Lake. Managing to land one fish and losing Three.

 

 

 

But what I must say is the amount of work that has been done on all the lakes.

 

 

 

 

 

Jarrod and Gavin have been working tirelessly and the results are fantastic. All the Islands on the lakes have been cut back and they look great.

 

 

 

 

 

The highlight of my two sessions in the summer sun was to catch a glimpse of the big orange Koi that can be sometimes seen cruising through the lily beds.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Last weighed some ten years ago when the lake was partially emptied, the weight then was 24lb and judging by these pictures I think we could be looking at a 30 lb fish which is still to be caught and named.

Posted by Richard on June 28, 2014 at 4:45 AM Comments comments (0)

 

White Springs has become a fishery for everybody with different sizes of fish to please all types of anglers. A session on the Big Pit catching Carp to mid doubles.

 

Whilst the Pleasure Lake is good for Bream, Golden Orph, Carp and nice Roach. Whilst a day on the Match Lake going for the F1 Carp that feed most days, could be very good fishing up in the water at this time of year.

 

The last couple of weeks there has been a Mid-week Wednesday evening match fishing from 6pm to 9pm with some good results.

 

Luke Sorokin got 98lb while Mikey Williams got 90lb. Over the last few weeks some other anglers have also had good weights and doing well for a few hours evening fishing was Dan Bowen getting 130lb 4oz, Rob Jones getting 109lb 4oz and Chris Wells with 110lb 12oz.

 

We are sorry there are no keep nets at present on the lakes, except if you are in a match. This is due to the weather conditions and the spawning season.

 

Please remember that we are running our annual charity event The Tony Smith Memorial and places are running out fast. It is being held on the 8th to the 10th August on the Specimen Lake. Please contact the fishery for details.

Latest News, Match & Catch Reports.

Posted by Richard on June 4, 2014 at 4:15 AM Comments comments (0)

 

The fishing is going well after the last couple of weeks, when the fish were spawning.

 

 

Margin fishing is doing the business feeding little and often and using small hooks like sizes 12 to18.

 

 

Fishing to heavy and you will lose lots of bites and playing lightly seems to be the key as pulling them too hard will damage their mouths and cost you fish as well.

 

 

Last weekends match on the New Canal was won by Russell Palmer from Cardiff with 76lb.

 

 

2nd was Dean Jay again from Cardiff with 69lb.

 

 

While on the Big Pit local lad Zack Williams got 76lb 10oz on his session, but the Match Lake has been doing better for Carp and Bream.

 

Visiting anglers from Liverpool got a very nice golden Koi of 13lb 10oz.

 

On the Specimen Lake another two boys from Cardiff fished mid week off peg 8, The Point to land a 34lb 8oz Common in mint condition.

 

Harry Wakeling just finished a three night session on The Island peg.

 

He had 16 fish, biggest fish was Nails at 27lb 8oz, and he also had a 27lb Common.

 

 

 

He also managed five fish over 20lb, and 10 fish being mid to high doubles.

 

Most fish were taken on Pro Baits Squid and Orange pop ups fished over a mix of Squid and Orange and B1 bottom baits.

 

Please can we also remind you that bookings are now being taken for our

 

Tony Smith Memorial Charity Event on the weekend of August 8th.

 

The places are being snapped up quickly as this is a very sought after event.

 

Please contact the fishery for details and your sponsorship forms.

 

Also can I remind anglers to take their litter home or use the bins provided around the lakes.

 

Well done to all anglers and until next time, tight lines and all.

No two days are the same, just when things started to pick up we got another cold, windy snap, making you change back to a winter method of fishing, but anglers on the new canal and big pit have been doing well for carp, bream and perch, whilst a few nice tench have come off the pleasure lake.

Last week’s match was won by Lliw Spinks with 99lb 8oz Lliw caught a carp of 3/4lb on the whistle which he had to put back that would of put him over 100lb mark. Well done Lliw 2nd was John Charlesworth 3rd Allan Godrich off the new canal.

While anglers were catching well using luncheon meat on the Big pit, Clive Beckett and Kevin done well midweek on the pleasure lake for bream and perch using soft hook pellet and feeding maggot.

The Specimen Lake has been fair with anglers catching on most pegs but nothing to big this week plenty in the mid 20’s.

As the weather warms up all keep nets will have to be taken out at 1pm every day
