You'd of thought a breeze would help their confidence and increase the feed / takes. Mind you drayton is a funny old place , unlike any other lake <!-- s:lol: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_lol.gif" alt=":lol:" title="Laughing" /><!-- s:lol: -->

Didnt fish on wednesday but did have a walk along the dam wall and a chat to a couple of anglers. Carp still seem to be coming out at the same rate as all summer but water still quite low. 2 lads i spoke to were fishing method feeder at distance and said they were having a run a cast after the first couple of hours of building up the swim. Interestingly they were using dumbell boilies not round ones as they thought that the carp have been hammered all year on round boilies and a change of shape may of been getting them more runs quicker than round ones.

whats the pike fishing actually like in drayton? I've never spoke to anyone who's tried for them I don't think. I don't really care for the place but its quite local and decent pike fishing can be tough to find locally around here.

Fairly good but they arent really fished for that much. Baliff told me that Boddington was better for the winter Pike but there are fish to over 20lb in Drayton.

I've done quite a bit on Boddington, and I have to go past Drayton to get there. Boddington had alot of fish deaths the other year, and it gets royally hammered by pike fisherman ever since loud mouth went to the press with his 40lb capture. So I might give Drayton a bash one time this winter see how it goes.

Dam wall is now closed due to the water levels being so low!! Will only reopen when water levels have rose at least another 2 foot.
