Much like the recent weather, the F1 fishing has been hotting up at Westland’s Lakes and anglers have been cashing in with bags up to 200lb from the complex’s Little Tench and Island Ponds. F1s to 6lb 12oz have even been banked from the margins on the prolific Middle Lake.
Visitors are enjoying some cracking sport on the other five day-ticket lakes too with big tench and big bream starting to feature from the Tench Pool. On the 25-peg Little Tench Pool, anglers have been feeding pellet and maggots little and often via a cad pot to catch F1s shallow.
These are all averaging around 2-3lb – with ide, skimmers and the odd big carp making appearances also. Elastics don’t need to be too strong on this lake too as most fish average around the 1-4lb mark. Meanwhile on the 25-peg, match-style Island Pool, visitors have been bagging up as well. This pool is similarly stocked to Little Tench with mainly F1s being landed by anglers fishing waggler or pole tight to the islands. These features are situated at around 13m away with just 2ft of water – making them ideal places to target in the summer. Attack these areas using hookbaits like corn or pellets to good effect. Alternatively, if you prefer more of a chilled session then head to the Canal Pond where all the carp and F1’s have been removed and replaced with quality silverfish. 30lb nets of barbel, chub, ide and tench are now coming out thanks to the new stocking programme to help offer a diverse fishing experience.
