Martin Finch reported.

At George's this Morning. Peg 19, fished waggler with Corn as usual. In the first 3.5 hours I caught nothing but Tench - stopped counting at 20. All small up to 3/4 lb. So I switched to the margin for the last 1.5 hours. At last some Skimmers/Bream! Had one at just over 3 lbs (see photo), three around the pound mark plus eight others, as well as two decent Tench and a small Carp.   03/05/2022.

David Critchley reported from George's lake.

Mixed session at Georges this morning. Fished peg 4. Started off with sweetcorn on waggler but no luck. Not unexpected tbh as I never seem to be able to catch anything on the float. Could do with someone showing me how it’s done . Put out the trusty bread punch on bomb and caught a succession of small Carp and Tench from the gap in between the islands.  28/04/2022.

Pete Eade had another great day on George's Lake.

Bit of a disappointing morning at George's. Fished peg 17. Bread punch on bomb. Could see plenty of fish feeding but not interested in my meagre offerings. After 3 hours switched to sweetcorn on my pole. Caught half a dozen small Tench about 2 metres out. Put the bomb out again and got this nice mirror but that was it so packed up early. Pretty Mirror David well done.  22/04/2022

Beautiful morning up at Georges. Wind a bit nippy but nice and sunny. Fished peg 6. Had two rods out, method feeder and bread punch on bomb. Caught some nice Tench and Bream on the feeder but caught these three beauties on bread punch:

Another report from Martin Finch.  07/03/2022.

Sunny but a chilly wind at George's this morning. I decided to use maggots rather than my normal corn. In 3 years of fishing at George's, I have only caught 2 Gudgeon. This morning I caught 20 plus. Also the same number of tiny Perch. I had some nice Roach too. I have caught plenty of Roach bigger than the one in the photo but it was my biggest at George's. Plus I had some Skimmers and a couple of decent Tench. Well done Martin.

David Critchley seems to have mastered Georges lake he reported.

Roger Ackroyd reported  28/02/2022

Well had a session on George's on Sunday. Chose an end peg where the wind was blowing (stupid and my first mistake). Well it started well with some nice roach and skimmers to maggot over micros and ground bait on pole in the first hour. Then the wind got up and blowing straight at me it made presenting a static pole bait nearly impossible . Out came the feeder. Started on maggot feeder and took a few Tench coming regularly . Then switching to a small ground bait feeder and using a few different hook baits it managed to fools some quality Crucians and then a few wobbly Carp. Ended up with a net of about 15lb of silvers and add together with 3 Carp put straight back with two others falling off at the net roughly 23lb of fish. Certainly on the feed and if the wind hadn't frozen my fingers and stopped me from pole fishing I may have had an even better day. Can't wait to go again .

Martin Finch reported.  27/02/2022.

A wet and windy session at George's this morning. Not another soul in sight! Bites were hard to come by and I had long quiet periods. Managed 6 Tench, two Crucians, two small Carp and this Bream of about 3.5 lbs. Used Corn and Bread punch on the waggler.

David Critchley reported had a beautiful day up at George’s today. Fished peg 19. Bread punch on bomb. Hooked 5, landed 3. Nice ones too. Well done David. 27/02/2022

Warren Thornton reported had a good day on George's slow start then the bream picked up, tricky trying to hold the pole in the wind. Fishing single red maggot over bed of ground bait did the trick. Roll on the March match. Well done Warren top angling in windy conditions.  26/02/2022

Martin Finch Reported  07/02/2022

Good session at George's this morning. Six decent Carp, this beautiful Common the best at 5.5lbs. Some Tench and Skimmers. All on Corn.

Amazing session for this time of year, started with 2 Carp 2 Tench and load of Roach Skimmers and Perch, then came an amazing Crucian Carp session just over an hour mid afternoon 25 in total never caught that many before let alone in winter. Great practice for starting the Sunday matches in march

Great afternoon on George’s, caught 5 Tench, 4 Carp, fished peg 16, caught on maggots. Met 4 different people and chatted for 3 out of the 5 hours. Lovely afternoon.  30/01/2022

Martin Finch reported.  31/01/2022

I wasn't expecting much this morning at George's with a strong cold wind blowing. I found a relatively sheltered peg and immediately got bites on the waggler. Using double maggot alternating with caster, I had 26 good quality Roach, 15 Perch and a nice Carp of about 4.5 lbs.

George's is fishing slower with the cold weather, deeper water seem to be producing the fish. Had this report from Aaron Jones and his dad. Great couple of hours on George's this morning, I had 5 carp and 2 roach and dad had a lovely crucian and a couple of carp after having advice from regular members we moved to deeper water.

Nice change doing a few hours of match fishing something totally different to what I'm used to.

Club member Adrian Norman reported.

Fishing wasn't great this morning, with just one small carp in the morning session, however this little chap kept helping him/Her self to my maggots all morning, beautiful little bird, its not just about the fishing.
