Bullock Farm, Back Lane, Kingston Seymour, North Somerset Updated 9th December 2014
Latest report from Bullock Farm

Rushcombe Lake is fishing particularly well at present.  Jason Pitman, a shift manager from Bristol, has had two great bags recently: the first was 75lb which included 17 carp, commons to 10lb and mirrors to 5lb.  Jason fished peg 40 on the pole with an 18 hook, 3lb 6oz line and size 5 elastic.  His hook bait alternated between sweetcorn and luncheon meat and he fed micropellets out in open water.  On the same day Kevin Pearce, a night assistant from Bristol, had a 71lb bag of 15 fish including commons to 6lb.  Kevin fished peg 45 on the pole catching in open water on a 16 hook, 4lb bottom line, 16 elastic using sweetcorn over sweetcorn.

Jason came back a few days later and fished peg 33 where he had a 73lb bag which included commons to 6.5lb and mirrors to 4lb.  This time he fished the inside margin with luncheon meat on the hook and fed luncheon meat and sweetcorn.  Witnessing these excellent bags was Martin Pearce, also from Bristol, who caught a very presentable 35lb bag using luncheon meat over luncheon meat – again on the inside margin.

The South Pool is still producing some excellent bags which include the large bream to 5.5lb. The corner pegs continue to be the best areas to fish from.  A huge variety of baits are working but maggots, sweetcorn and small pieces of luncheon meat are the best.  Try a 16-18 hook with a 1.5lb bottom line with a small amount of feed for best results.


The Match Lake’s best areas are from peg 14 through to peg 26 at the moment.  This area of the lake usually fishes well at this time of year.  A lot of silver fish are being caught on casters over casters fishing out in open water but about 4 inches off the bottom.  Fish really light with maggots, squats and bread punch as hookbait.  Small quantities of micropellets are the best feed.
 
The Carp Lake still remains difficult but, as it’s been fished very little this week, it’s right for someone to bag up on it in our opinion.


The North Pool: keep it light – a size 18-20 hook and a 2-3lb bottom line with small pieces of flavoured luncheon meat, maggots, casters and bread punch as hookbait.  The peninsula is the most consistent area on this lake.  you can expect mixed bags to 35lb of pasty-sized carp, silver fish and crucians.

River Isle Updated 25th January 2015 - Some good weights in todays match, Jamie Rich caught quality roach for 21lb 4oz from peg 109 at Redbridge on the pole and caster, Rob Cox was second with 11lb 11oz from peg 126 at Isle Brewers and Jake Woodard was third with 10lb 9oz from peg 112 at Redbridge.
