What tactics work well?
Bottom tactics for carp are the norm with the chod rig being very popular and offering excellent presentation in the deep silt, with groundbait sticks or pellet bags coming a close second.
Bream respond well to either the feeder or the waggler and can give hectic sport on the pole.
Winter fishing for the pike can be good with plenty of jacks and occasional doubles with the odd larger fish coming to suspended dead baits.
