Well it hasnt changed a lot lol. There was a match on so the place got quite full, luckily I had read the board and put my self on the opposite side and further down to the shallower end*. I didnt see any carp showing which was unusual so I started on a method feeder and after 20 mins I was getting lots of knocks but no positive bites so I shortned the hook length to 3 &quot; and was in on the next cast. A short 30 min burst saw three carp grace my unhooking mat and then it all stopped, so I cast further out searching for them but found nothing. The match anglers started arriving and at the start of their match they all either put out a method feeder or were catapaulting pellets like they were going out of fashion. From my position opposite I saw that the anglers would catch two or three carp then the angler next to them would catch a few and so it went on along the whole stretch as the shoals of carp patrolled along the line hoovering up the pellets.

The weather was very very hot so I called it a day around about 1130 hrs, there were a huge amount of carp sunning themselves in the shallows behind the pegs and I wonder if they will ever get back to the main lake.


Just a quick footnote* I saw a huge Pike in the shallows at the top end, its head was one side of the platform and its tail was the other side. Im deffo going Piking there in the colder months.

Thinking about it its just over 2 years ago i last went when testing some homemade baits for a mate. Best i have had from there was this 16lb from that trip.

Dont think the carp will ever get back in the main lake. Theres loads of them the other side as well. Any idea what size they get to in there? There was a big fish kill a few years back and it was closed for a while if i remember rightly. Still heavily packed with carp in there then like all British Waterways lakes.
Also is the water level low in there to like Drayton?
