I was fishing a winter league match about 10 years ago and I had 147lb and won the match at a place called Tollerton ponds fishing just using my top 2 in about 6ft of water the fish was shoaled up either getting out of the wind or just in slightly deeper water. The 2nd place had something like 35lb. This was in freezing cold temps in January. I still remember it to this day, the fish was not moving and all I had to do was get it right in front of there noses and they would eat it. I could of had a lot more but I had to keep going for a walk to stay warm all the other anglers was cursing me and coming to watch and stand behind my peg lol.
Can have some good days in winter but also some sh## days too. I fished a winter league match on year and I was all wrapped up and trying to stay warm and just focusing on the lake infront of me and not really noticed how much it snowed and after the match we had to dig our cars out of the carpark because it had snowed about a foot deep but obviously the snow wasnt settling on the water so I didnt realise how bad it had got :eek:

Hi John,
I have not been fishing in the Uk for a few years now but planned on starting up this year :sad: But I would have been getting rather giddy at this point as three of us had booked and paid for a weeks Carp fishing in France on the 23rd of this month which is not going to happen now :angry-banghead:

I was hoping fishing would have been allowed. Saying everyone would have took it up. Like they’ve all began walking, running and cycling.

Hey frank , I’ve a cycling holiday booked for the end of May and as yet I’ve not had a cancellation email. Fingers crossed.

I see her point.
I’m going to a place near here that’s has the room. I can park at the peg and the guy says leave the money in a tub 2mtr behind. It’s plenty big and no one needs to be near you the pass. Plus onset has said he’ll kick anyone off who starts walking around.

That lake looks flat, I could have wind surfed on mine. I lasted 3hrs and had to go, it was just to cold in the wind. Had about 20 fish but nothing massive.
Frank,,, I can’t sit in a bivvy all week for one fish. Do you watch “monster carp” some big buggers on there
