Marsh Canal at Partridge Lakes

Marsh Canal 6th September 2012

My third trip to this great venue and I was not to be disappointed, with James Davies in tow we decided to have a go on one of the canal style waters, as we both have never fished this type of water on a fishery before, and with a little bit of inside knowledge from the bailiffs we were away.

We fished the end of the canal closest to the club house pegs 3 & 5, it was only 8 degrees with a real chill in the air and a lot of mist on the water, and it fished hard for the first few hours, but with a few changes in gear and tactics our fortunes soon changed. We came up in the water and lighter with smaller hook bait and the fish came.

We took Mirror, Common and F1 Carp, Roach, Rudd, Ide and a Golden Tench. The silver fishing was extremely good, with a lot of Ide coming out, me and James have said this often not to forget the silvers, because if the carp are not feeding you can always relie on the silvers to give you a great days fishing. We did 60lb between us on a good days fishing.

Partridge lakes continues to impress me with every visit, the venue is always spotless and very well maintained. Big thanks to Nel and Mel the bailiffs who have supported me from my first visit and hope to continue into the future.
