Had a little walk along the Dam whenfinished work yesterday and had a word with a few anglers. They seemed to be having a few but were casting to the horizon and fishing small bags of pellets with floro pop-ups or a bright bottom bait. They werent bagging but had a few carp each. As for others on the lake on the boards i didnt walk round so dont know if they were catching.

Carp are moving alot on there atm. Mornings are slow especially if theres been a frost but carp are coming onto the bait around midday. No need no pile bait in yet, small bags, single baits over a couple of spods of particles seems to be working.

Staring to move and come out alot up here as the carp start warming up. If you got a few pegs between you and other anglers dont forget to fish tight to the margins with a handful of bait over you hookbait. ;)

Had a job interview at the hotel over the road from Drayton today. No sign of Mark the baliff and didnt see Bencarp16 if you were fishing although only really walked along dam wall and near the sailing club. Fro mthe anglers i spoke to seems the carp are coming out from all over the lake and a few are coming off the top. If i get this job maybe spending a bit more time down there on short day sessions this summer. Floro pop-ups still seem to be popular and having their fair share of carp. ;)

Checkbook and pen......again!!!!

Never fished in the end. Heading there next week.
Plan is to fish pop-ups over my spod mix at distance and fish the margins at night. <!-- s:idea: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_idea.gif" alt=":idea:" title="Idea" /><!-- s:idea: -->

Water level very low at to monment. Over a foot below the boards. <!-- s:o --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_surprised.gif" alt=":o" title="Surprised" /><!-- s:o -->
In answer to Ryans post in another now locked post.
Anything goes mate but as the summer goes on the carp push further out in the lake. Head to pegs on the sailing club or pegs around 85-95 and cast towards the sailing clubs bouys that are on the lake. In the evenings and nights fish the margins the carp come round and hoover up the left over bait from the day ticket anglers. Most fish around the 12lb mark and i have never caught/seen a common come out yet. They do go bigger but you got to sit through 100 smaller ones to get to them.
Any more info just ask mate.

me and my lad did a day on drayton last week and we had 50 fish between us (48 doubles and 2 singles ) really good day but there were quite a few slow patches if you could keep them coming at the same rate all day it would be close to 100 fish i think in a day only session

Nice one well done mate. Can i ask what you were using and did you hammer the bait in. I tend to find if it does go quiet that keeping the bait going they will come back onto your baited spot.
