Our winter league final match was on the New Canal and Match Lake with 30 anglers taking part.
It started slow due to a very cold night with hail stones which were just like snow on the ground.
Putting the fish off the feed there was only 10lb between the top 10 anglers.
It was a close fought match to the end.
1st on the Canal was Luke Sorokin with 59lb 2oz, 2nd was James Thomas with 53lb 3oz and 3rd place was Mikey Williams with 52lb 14oz.
On the Match Lake, 1st place was Andrew Neal with 49lb 1oz, 2nd was Nigel Morris with 45lb 8oz and 3rd place was Bob Giles with 45lb 6oz but the overall winner of the 6 matches was Adam Mitchell with 64 points, 2nd with 63 points was Andrew Neal, then Mikey Williams with 61 ½ points. 4th Luke Sorokin with 59 points and 5th Andrew Crocker with 58 points.
Just goes to show it was anyone’s up to the last, a very good 6 weeks fishing.
On the other lakes The Big Pit is on form with anglers reporting some good bags with carp of 10lb plus, while the Pleasure Lake has been coming up with bream from 2 – 5lb range and the odd mid double carp.
The Specimen Lake has been a little slower compared with the last couple of weeks but the best has been another 30lb plus mirror for Harry Wakling’s mate. While Sasha Dickes got 7 carp fishing 3 nights off peg 12.
Don’t forget we are a no litter zone if you get caught leaving litter expect a ban from the fishery.

A Record Week at White Springs.
A 43lb 8oz Mirror and yet again, another fish over the 30lb mark what a week it’s been here at the fishery.
Ethan Bevan from Merthyr Tydfil fished off peg 4 and landed a 43lb 8oz Carp called Hand Job, while his mate Hywel Lloyd-Jones caught a 32lb 8oz mirror off peg 6 and another 8 upper doubles.
Another angler to do well and break records was Allan Godrich fishing off peg 10 on the Specimen Lake. Fishing for Bream and Perch, Allan hooked into something bigger and landed a 27lb 1oz mirror on just 3lb line and a size 20 hook using a single grain of Sweetcorn for bait. What an angler. Well done Allan, that’s got to be a record for match gear fishing.
The Specimen Lake has been fishing very well with forty fish being caught on there last week.
While the Big Pit has also been on form most days with anglers reporting some good catches.
The New Canal and Match Lake have been good for Carp around the 2 to 4lb mark.
While plenty of Bream and a couple of Tench have been caught out of the Pleasure Lake. The Tench weighed around the 3/4lb mark.
Last weekend’s match was held on the Match Lake. It was fished in some awful weather with Phil Lewis coming first with 49lb.
2nd Adam Norris with 36lb 4oz and 3rd Peter Williams with 33lb 8oz.
Allan Godrich got a big surprise.
After more than fifty years of match fishing, winning his first match when he was just ten years old with a 2oz roach from Bryn Mill Lake in Swansea. Alan has become well known in local match events over the years. Culminating in winning the Welsh National on Port Talbot Docks in 2001.
Having retired from his trade as a carpet fitter many years ago, he now spends most of his time on the bank here at the White Springs fishery, due to the easy lakeside access.
Being the expert angler he is, he’s allowed to fish the Specimen Lake here at White springs to target the specimen Bream and Perch.
Last Thursday he set up on peg 10 between the trees, using a nine metre Daiwa Tournament whip, fitted out with a no. five elastic with 3lb hook length with a size twenty hook topped off with a single grain of Sweetcorn.
Fishing just off the margin at five to six feet and after a couple of small Roach, he hooked into something a bit bigger. Realising it was a Carp he called the anglers on the next peg, George Deakin and Olli Hill on holiday from Birmingham to ask to lend their bigger net. Using his skills from match fishing he landed a Mirror Carp that weighed 27lb 1oz, this is a record for Allan and White Springs on such light tackle.
Well done Allan and all other angleres.
Can all anglers and patrons of the fishery remember to take their litter home or use the bins provided please.
Until next time , tight lines and all.

What a week it’s been. The fish have come on the feed everywhere.
The Specimen Lake has produced some nice fish, especially for Chris Skelton from Monmouth who fished peg 8 for his first visit to White Springs.
Chris landed 8 fish, his best being a 33lb 10oz mirror that’s not known to the regular anglers who fish the lake. Chris was using Squid and Octopus pop ups on a blow back rig, fished over a bed of hemp, chopped bollies and sweetcorn.
Another angler to do well was Mark Wozencroft on peg 11 who also caught 8 fish, his best being a mirror at 30lb 8oz and four more Carp all over the 20lb mark.
John Flewin was another angler to do well. He fished peg 2 and landed a 26lb 7oz mirror, 23lb 10oz common and a couple mid doubles.
The place to be was on the Big Pit, our new runs lake where Simon and Ian Pearce from Pontypool fished on the New Island to land fifteen and sixteen Carp each. All were around the 10lb mark, while Anthony Clarke on a day session landed 22 Carp, his smallest being 8lb.
Anglers at last weekend’s match on the New Canal did well with the boys fishing in very windy conditions.
Adam Mitchell won the match with 93lb 4oz.
2nd was Andrew ford with 57lb 8oz.
3rd close behind was Dan Bowen with 50lb.
Adam Mitchell with his winning bag.
Another match was also held on The Match Lake. That match was won by Andrew Crocker who weighed in with 59lb 6oz.
2nd was Luke Sorokin with 47lb 8oz and again close behind in third was John Harvey with 45lb 2oz.

Nice to see the match boys finally taking a few pictures of their catches.
The match lakes are also on form producing excellent weights for the time of year.
Well done to all anglers.
Please can anyone using the fishery take their litter home or use the bins provided.
Until next time, tight lines and all.

Another challenging week with the weather still unsettled.
Last Sunday after starting off slow with the overnight frost, James Thomas got the fish feeding to weigh in 32lb.
2nd place was last week’s winner Pete Edwards he got the silver fish to take down the track for 31lb 12oz then Allan Goddritch third with 27lb 12oz.
While a pleasure angler on the Pleasure Lake was watching Carp take Chum Mixers off the top, this lake is warmer in the winter months with the water coming up out of the well, so it’s always good for a bit of surface fishing even in the colder moths.
The Specimen Lake has been slower but anglers are reporting seeing carp feeding, so pop up baits are the things to use.
Please if you have any pictures you would like to post onto the website, contact me at email@example.com.
Until next time, tight lines and all.

Yet another wet week, but the fish are feeding. It’s just hard to see their bites in these conditions.
The Specimen Lake has seen a couple of nice fish coming out this week. Justin Williams fished out of the Old Cabin (peg 1) to land a nice 31lb 11oz mirror while Jason Cadwallader fished peg 8 to land a 28lb 8oz mirror using White Chocolate tipped off with Sweetcorn.
On the pleasure side Perch and Bream seem to be the fish to go for but John Charlesworth fished the Old Canal now called the Big Pit and he got a bag of 100lb of Carp all averaging around the 9/10lb mark. Our new stockies are starting to feed well.
The winter match series had the third match last Sunday with Pete Edwards from Pembroke winning with 46lb 22lb with the majority of his catch being was silver fish.
2nd with 41lb 12oz was another Pembroke lad, Mark Goodhall of West Wales Angling.
3rd was Chris Hall with 36lb 12oz.
4th John Harvey with 34lb 12oz.
5th with 33lb 14oz was Mikey Williams.
6th was Richie Barnet with 33lb 10oz.
7th Chris Bradley with 32lb 8oz and close behind was Chris Wells with 30lb 8oz.
Good weights for the weather conditions.
It was a very close match with thirty anglers taking part.
The points system sees Nigel Morris as top man with 35 points then with 34 points each are Mark Goodhall, Adam Mitchell and Mikey Williams.
With the results being so close the Winter Series could still be any bodies.
Here are some pictures of the new stockies that have again been added to the Big Pit this week.
Some lovely Commons and Mirrors and once the stocking process is finished this is going to be a truly awesome runs water.
Well done to all anglers.
Until next time, tight lines and all.

It would be fair to say we are having a mild winter so far, with loads of rain and some windy days making it hard for the anglers to hold onto their poles. This has made the match fishing a little slower than normal.
Match anglers are not able to see all the bites they are receiving but the mid-week match was held on the New Canal with Rob Jones on peg 20 coming in first. He managed to bag 63lb 6oz of carp all on the pole.
Second place went to Allan Godrich who fished close in and caught silver fish, which were mainly Bream for a 39lb 2oz bag.
The weekend saw the second match of the winter series take place on the Match Lake and New Canal with 30 anglers in attendance.
Rob Jones again picking peg 20 won the match on The New Canal with 51lb 12oz.
Second was James Thomas with 46lb 12oz then very close behind in third with 46lb 9oz was Mickey Williams, who said he lost more fish than he caught due to the windy conditions.
On the Match Lake Andrew Neal was first with 56lb 5oz, second was Ritchie Barnett with 42lb.
Then very close in third was Pete Edwards with 41lb 11oz.
Despite the weather it was a close run match with the lead changing on many occasions.
On the Big Pit some of the new fish have come out again with anglers reporting Carp all around the 9/10lb mark.
The Specimen Lake again has been a little slower on the weekend, but mid-week saw two anglers catching. One with four fish, best being a 26lb mirror, while Tony and Gail from Caerphilly who fished peg One (The Old Cabin) lost five fish. Tony said one was a big one, believed to be one of the lakes forties.

With the weather still on the mild side for the time of year the fish are feeding well, with the Pleasure Lake producing plenty of action, especially for the silver fish. Bream, Roach and Perch have been reported in abundance.
The Big Pit had also been on form with plenty of the new Carp now being caught around 9/10lb mark.
The New Canal and Match Lake have been a little slower than normal but fishing up off the bottom is proving to be the best method to produce some good bags.
Sunday’s match saw Nigel Morris come out on top with a weight of 40lb 4oz, then the weights dropped to 27lb for Wes Sheldon second and close behind in third with 26lb was James Barnett.
On the Specimen Lake there’s not much to report this week but fish to nearly 20lb have been caught, the best being 24lb Mirror landed off peg 6.

Despite the very bad weather conditions last week, the carp competition on the Specimen Lake took place in some of the worst weather of the year.
There were twenty anglers taking part.
They were all competing for £1400 worth of prizes and among the field of very strong competitors were the Gronow brothers, current Welsh Carp Masters champions.
Leighton Morris twice winner of the Tony Smith Memorial Challenge competition for Children’s Cancer and Cystic Fibrosis. And quite a few White Springs regulars.
After the draw at 11am Friday. The forty eight hour match started at 2pm.
The first fish to come out was from the Island peg. Leighton Morris was off to a flying start and things were looking good for him.
Visiting anglers had done a forty eight hour session prior to the weekend on the same peg to land 14 carp. Leighton was fishing that same spot.
Yet within the first hour of the start, John Cooper of Bad Boy Baits landed his first fish. Then it was the turn of Matthew Gronow with his first catch of the competition.
Not long after, the weather turned with some very severe conditions. Anglers were fighting to keep their bivvy’s pegged down and trees in the distance came crashing down.
Despite the terrible conditions there were eleven carp caught in total and it was a very close run competition with anglers only waiting to land one of those big White Springs fish to win.
The final results were;
1st John Cooper, winning with four fish and receiving £1000.
2nd Matthew Gronow with two fish picking up £200.
The Nash reclining chair, White Springs 5 kilo banana boillies and a free forty eight hour fishing ticket went to Leighton Morris with the biggest fish of 22lb.
We would like to thank Paul and Martin for running the event. Well done to them and all competing anglers.
On the pleasure side, the lakes and New Canal have been producing some nice bags and individual fish. Sizes of 9lb and 11lb Carp have come off peg 26 of New Canal, while The Pit has also been producing some good fishing with paste or maggot being the baits catching most.
Beth and Jarrod would like to say thanks for supporting White Springs by giving a special offer of buy one day ticket and get your next visit free. Weekdays from now until 19th December. So come along enjoy the angling and save on your next visit to the fishery.
