Pembrokeshire Coarse Fishery
he Fishing over the past month has been very good on the whole with good numbers of carp being caught up to 15lbs. Plenty of silvers showing where large bags could be produced. What has been far more temperamental with practically every season rolled into the month, well ok it did not snow but!
Carp are starting to spawn but that did not stop Trish catching 25 on Saturday during fairly warm sunny conditions. Some were taken on floating dog biscuit others using a float with not to much weight attached just enough to cock the float and sink the bait . The woodland is looking at it's best with blue bells in full bloom and lots of bird song to admire.
The Pembrokeshire Piscatorial match anglers braved a very cold wind here today, but their efforts were well rewarded with over a 100 kilos of fish caught by just 6 anglers. Jonathan led the way with 34. kilos Ken pushed him hard with just under 30 kilos. As usual, all the fish were in excellent condition and were still feeding and being caught right up to the end of the match.
Early spring has encouraged the fish to feed and all species are being caught in good numbers. Malcolm and Spence down from Liverpool for a few days had a brilliant first day over 20 wild carp between them, up to 12lbs. Colin caught this lovely perch from the bottom lake on Friday. The gentleman in the photograph with the carp caught four within the first 90 minutes of his first visit here this being one of the smaller ones. I think he will be back.
t was a good day for two Swansea anglers. The both caught a double figure carp each withing the first hour of their Sunday session. The fishing remained good throughout the day, switching between using a pole and then a ledger rod while using a variety of baits paid dividends and both ended up with over 60lb of fish each.
Happy New year all. Some good fishing at the moment. Weather has been kind to us over the festive season. All species of fish being caught and the wayward perch who found their way into the top lake are certainly putting on the weight a few have been caught recently at 2.5lbs . Next Pembrokeshire Piscatorial Match will be on Sunday 20th
Also some interesing wild life about at this time of year!
