It’s been unseasonably cold, quite a few windy days but the anglers that braved the conditions have been rewarded with some good catches.

 

 

The mid-week match held on the Old Canal was too windy to fish to the centre islands so anglers fished down the track along the margins to get some nice sport.

It’s been a funny Winter so far with some warm days and others blowing a gale with cold winds coming from North East, yet we’ve had some good sport, especially on the Specimen Lake and Big Pit waters.

 

This winter’s stocking has made a big difference with the resident stock more active and feeding well.

Despite there being no results posted over the last couple of weeks due to illness, the lakes have been fishing very well, especially the Specimen Lake and The Big Pit with three fish over the 30lb mark having been reported.

Chris Clarke fishing the Island swim on his second visit to our Specimen Lake managed to land four fish, his best a 32lb 4oz Mirror called The Turk, while Anthony Wilson fishing off cabin 9 beat his P.B with a beautiful 28lb 12oz Common.

 

 

 

Anthony Wilson also landed this cracking Common at 28lb 14oz.

 

 

 

Another angler was Chris Poole on peg 8 who landed three carp, a 22lb 3oz, 23lb 6oz and a very nice 31lb 02oz Mirror.

Harry Wakelin did 48hrs on the Island to land four Carp, his best being a 26lb 8oz Common, while Hywel Jones landed nine fish having found a shoal just off the Island on peg 6, all around the 18 to 21lb mark.

While John Flewing on peg 6a netted a 28lb 14oz Common, shows bigger fish seem to be more loners than in shoals.

 

Also over last weekend Anthony an angler from Port Talbot landed a lovely Mirror at 22lb 4 0z to beat his old 17lb personal best by just over 5lb.

 

 

The Big Pit has also been quite good for Carp and Bream.

 

Visiting anglers down from Birmingham staying in the Scandinavian log cabins fished for Perch and were rewarded with a couple of 4 ½ lb fish. A great result for them.

 

On the match side, the winter leagues last match was on the New Canal and Match Lake.

 

Results from the Match Lake were.

 

1st Rob Jones with 52lb 12oz.

 

2nd Ian Exall 43lb 10oz.

 

3rd Wes Sheldon 33lb 5oz.

 

On the New Canal.

 

1st Andrew Crocker with 72lb 12oz.

 

2nd was Mark Jones with 50lb 6oz.

 

3rd Nigel Morris with 47lb 12oz.

 

Excellent weights for the conditions on the day.

 

I would also like to bring to all anglers attention that while maintenance work was being carried out on the Specimen Lake a number of death rigs have been found, culminating with an angler landing a Carp while still tethered to a cracked off lead core.

 

Due to this total lack of fish care, the staff here at White Springs have increased its number of bailiffs with John Flewin now joining John Cooper as part of the bailiffing team.

 

Anglers on the Specimen and Big Pit lakes will be approached as regular checks will be carried out on the condition of angler’s rigs. This has to be done to ensure the welfare of the Carp in both lakes.

 

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

Martin Mathews from Carmarthen is no stranger to White Springs, enjoying his winter fishing. you have to think before you cast out to where the fish are holding up as they are not feeding every day in the colder weather, but he has been rewarded with one of our new fish 26lb from peg 2, yet he lost a much bigger one as the other anglers around the lake heard his calls of disbelief.

 

Another angler to do well was Kristian Jenkins from Llanelli on cabin 7. He landed a 29lb 5oz Common on Nash Coconut Crème pop ups, a few more ounce’s and someone will be able to name it.

 

While anglers on The Big Pit are also picking up fish that are new to them, with a few of our newer 17/18lb’s being reported.

 

The pleasure side has also been a little slower but fishing for silvers has been fair with anglers saying fish down the tracks, in other words down the sides, using maggot or chopped worm seems to be working.

Last week ends matches were on the New Canal with Ben Hicks doing it with 48lb 10oz.

 

While Wes Sleldon on the Match Lake got 25lb 8oz and very close behind was Andrew Neal with 25lb made up of silver fish and a couple of Carp.

 

Perch are coming off most lakes up to 4lb.

Don’t forget Memberships are still available until the 20th Feb.

So get one and save on every visit with our discounted rates for members.

 

Well done to all anglers.

 

And until next time, tight lines and all.

 

Breaking News

Posted by Richard on January 20, 2015 at 2:00 PM Comments comments (0)

White Springs has always been one of, if not, the top fishery here in Wales.

 

In its Thirty Two year existence, it has gone from strength to strength. Always keeping ahead of its competitors and providing first class fishing on all levels, from a very competitive Match Angling League to Pleasure fishing for the day angler or to specimen hunters like myself who can regularly spend up to three nights or more, hoping to catch what could be a Welsh record Carp.

 

You only have to read the catch reports to tell how good these lakes are, or even, just speak to one of the many friendly anglers who frequent the establishment and they will all say the same thing. The fishery is managed by a team that strive to bring us the best.

 

The Specimen Lake over the last year has been stocked with over thirty four specimen Carp, with weights between 18 to 22lb of fast growing, hard fighting fish. The ones that have been caught are gaining weight with every capture as this lake continues to thrive as does its inhabitants.

 

Now for any other fishery that would be an excellent re-stocking policy for one lake, but no, not White Springs.

 

This fishery has to excel in excellence by bringing in another twelve carp with weights ranging from 27 to 34lb.

 

All the fish are genuine English Carp which have been acquired from the stock ponds of the much acclaimed Broad Oak syndicate water, an old estate lake on the Kent / Sussex border.

 

Such is the quality of these Carp that there is a very long waiting list for that particular syndicate.

 

And such is the prestige of these Carp, the syndicate operate a micro chipping scheme so that each fish they breed has its own identity to prove that they were bred from their much-admired stock of old English Carp.

 

The Carp that have been introduced to the Specimen Lake here at White Springs are believed to be from the Dink strain, given their massive shoulders and flawless markings. A strain that is renowned for its hard fighting Carp.

 

Naturally raised in the estate stock ponds, these Carp have never even seen a line, let alone a boilie.

 

So I am pleased to bring you these pictures for your own reference should you be lucky enough to have one of these beautiful specimens cross your net cord.

 

 

 

Memberships are still available for all lakes here at White Springs. Please contact the fishery for further details.

 

Thanks must go to Bethan and Jarrod for their endeavour to bring the Specimen Lake into a truly top Carp water, not only in Wales but to compete with any day ticket water throughout the country.

 

So to all specimen anglers, let the naming rights begin, as not one of these Carp have been fished for before and any angler that should be lucky enough to land one.

 

Start thinking what you could call one?

Until next time, tight lines and all

Despite the first cold snap of the winter I’m happy to report some truly excellent catches especially for the silver fish and Perch. Dan Bowen fished on the Pleasure Lake after a cold frosty start. The fishing then came on big time with him weighing in 79lb 8oz off peg 6.

 

While Alan Godrich was the other end on peg 15 after a late start. He weighed in 51lb 4oz.

 

Then Sunday, Swansea anglers had a silver fish match on the same lake with John Clement weighing in 25lb 4oz.

 

Very close behind was Peter Williams with 24lb 2oz and third was Phil Lewis with 20lb 4oz all silvers Excellent fishing for the time of year.

 

While Andrew Crocker on the Match Lake fishing off peg 7 got 46lb. Many of the other anglers are all looking to beat our best Perch of 5lb 4oz.

 

On the Specimen Lake the best fish reported was a 27lb 8oz mirror and also a 17lb new stockie has come off the Big Pit.

Don’t forget to book in for our Christmas Turkey competition on Sunday 21st December fishing the Match Lake and also our 2015 memberships are now available so join and save on every visit.

 

We would like to thank all our customers for their support through the year and to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and a Prosperous New Year.
