    Fished peg 18 on 7/9/2017. Very slow from 7am only 3 small stockie mirrors, kept a steady dribble of bait going into margin and at 12.30 started to fish. Between this and 2pm I had 7 commons smallest 7lb and biggest just over 11lb with two breaching the 9lb mark. Bait was luncheon meat fished 2ft from bank. Angler on 16 also catching well and 33 had around 10 fish when I packed up.

    Tuesday 31 January Fished peg 19 at Horseshoe started at 8am and for first 2 hours not a bite then had 7 in the next 3. Fished towards the fallen tree. Bait was white chocolate pellet fished with a pellet cone of red aggressor 4mm inside. Had tried washed out boilie and peach and pepper wafters but like all of us they like chocolate. Catch was 3 bream (probably the ones I put in they said hello as if they knew me) 1 tench 2-3 pound and 2 commons 5 and 8lb and 1 mirror beautifully marked guess at 7lb. All weights are approx as left scales at home.

    Fished Deeping Roadside 31st Dec, didn't think it would be very good as the water was very clear, I gave that peg 10 a go and had my best weight from that section ever with 22.5lb of roach. Mick Wright and Des Dalton were fishing above the foot bridge and Mick had about 15lb and Des probably 8lb

    Great day at Horseshoe Lake today (24/11/2016) caught a dozen carp between 3 and 13lb. Most between 6 and 8lb. Fishing in the margins near to the point using worm and red maggot. Lake still fishing well if your lucky enough to hit the right day, so give it a try this winter.
