Latest report from Bullock Farm
Rushcombe Lake. This lake is in top form!  The water is an excellent colour which is no doubt partly due to the fact that we’ve had such mild weather recently.
When experienced match fishermen like Kev Perry and Dominic Sullivan turn up, you expect them to catch well – and they did.  Kev fished peg 32 and Dominic fished peg 12 (on separate days). They both keep their tactics close to their chest but it appeared that they were both using a 20-22 hook with a fine bottom line of around 1.5lb and fishing 6 inches from the far bank.  They both had micro-pellets, pellets and maggots in their bait trays.  Clearly these baits were working well.
It’s great to see pleasure anglers like Tony & Julie Stephens from Clevedon also catching well.  In recent visits they’ve had goldfish in their net as well as some lovely carp to just under 5lb*.  
All pegs of this lake are fishing well.  In addition to the hook baits mentioned above, bread punch, sweetcorn and plain luncheon meat are also working well.  You can expect pleasure bags between 50-65lb.
The Match Lake is also fishing really well.  The roach in here are feeding consistently well.  Keep it really simple with a single red maggot on a 20 hook with a light bottom line to catch roach to 2.5lb.    
Casters, sweetcorn and bread punch are also tempting crucians and fantailed crucians in open water.  The carp are being caught on the inside margins, predominantly on plain luncheon meat. 
The South Pool is the most sheltered of our lakes and is particularly popular in wet and windy conditions.  The aforementioned Tony Stephens recently had a lovely 3.5lb bream - they go to 5.5lb in here and the carp run to 14lb.  You can expect a good mixed bag from here and the corner pegs are consistently the best.  The best hookbaits are sweetcorn and plain luncheon meat.
The Carp Lake is also an excellent colour.  Plain luncheon meat is tempting good doubles out of this lake – they run to 25lb in here but, it still remains the hardest of the five lakes to fish.

North Pool – also a great colour and in good form.  The perch in here are showing well – the best two pegs to find them are 1 and 2. Fish to the edge of the lily pad with plain luncheon meat to see if you can tempt them.  The best pleasure bags have been coming from the ‘Hovis’ pegs on the end of the peninsula.  
Finally, we’d like to take this opportunity to wish you all the best for the festive season and remind you that we are open every single day – just in case you feel the need to escape!
