Latest report

The Match Lake is in really good form.  All areas of this lake are producing excellent mixed bags.  You still need to fish light – typically an 18 hook with a 2lb bottom line and keep feed to a minimum. 

Typical of the bags coming out at the moment is Stuart Graham’s 95lb bag from peg 29 of the Match Lake on worm and caster. He fished 8 metres (1 metre from the island) straight out in front on the pole using single caster over little and often caster, 1 inch over depth for a steady catch of skimmers, crucians, roach and fantails. In around 5 hours he had approx 65lb with no large carp so really good sport! For the next hour he fished with his top kit in the right hand margin with worm over caster, only dropping in when seeing carp swirl! He had a total of 5 carp for 30lb - the biggest was a 13lb 8oz mirror, so a total bag of 95lb in little over 6 hours.

Bob Blackmore from Bristol fished his favourite peg 16 and had an excellent 83lb bag which included crucians to 1.75lb, bream to 3lb, fantails to 2lb, common carp to 6lb and roach to 12oz.  Bob fished on the pole 10 metres out and about 2 metres from the island.  He had a caster on an 18 hook, fed a few micro-pellets and used a 2.5lb line and size 8 elastic.
There’s a fantastic variety of fish in this lake – expect lots of crucians and fantailed crucians, bream and roach as well as the tench and golden tench which are now beginning to show. 

The North Pool is also fishing really well and it produced a ‘first’ for 9 year old Aidan Smith.  Aidan caught a lovely linear mirror on ledgered sweetcorn – photo on our website gallery, Facebook page and Twitter feed.  This proves you do not need to be vastly experienced to catch nice fish at Bullock Farm!

In the Carp Lake the larger carp are proving tough to catch at the moment.  However, the good head of pasty-sized carp are being caught regularly.  We don’t charge for extra rods so it’s a good tip to put one rod out lighter than you would normally fish the specimen lake to target these fish.   

The South Pool continues to fish almost as well as the Match Lake but the bonus in this sheltered little lake is that the specimen bream, to 5lb, show regularly.  All pegs are producing. 

Rushcombe Lake – try the same tactics as for the Match Lake with single red maggot on the hook being by far the best hook bait.  All areas are producing good bags in this all-carp water but the area around the bridge continues to be the most consistent.  

Ilminster Canal Updated 2nd March 2014 - Justin Charles had the top weight in today's match with 8lb 9oz of roach and perch. Scott Jackson was second with 3lb 10oz.

River Isle Updated 15th December 2013 - Isle Brewers still fishing its socks off, the top three all had double figures today with Jamie Rich taking the top weight of 19lb 14oz from peg 128 on the pole, fished four sections to hand.
