Reply to comments and questions

I have been asked a couple of questions.


Can Baltic Wharf be fished using a float and rod?

Yes it can but the depth is a major problem,
At 5mtrs it will be around 10 to 12 feet deep
and drops away to about 20 foot at 7 to 10 mtrs out.

There is a problem now and that is the boats,
your float won't be seen so you'll be winding in regularly.

Feeders fishing can and is used but I advise
using a back lead as again the boats can be a problem.


Where to pay at Dutchess Lake

Set and wait for some to come round, check for I.D.
Its £5 for the day, £100 for syndicate.

Do I fish Eastville Park or St Georges Park.

Yes to both but didn't enjoy them and
was always worried about my tackle.

Pole fish down the Balic Wharf. 14-04-11

Popped down the Baltic Wharf this morning,
fished from 08.00 till 14.00.

I used a 3grm Sensas Desque to a size 18 hook on the 8mtr line.
This was the bottom of a drop off.
I used Maggot, Casters and Worm as baits, fished over
a mix of Sensas groundbaits
which were Sensas Magic,Gros Gardons and Brown Crumb.
Hemp seed was loose fed as were Casters and Maggots.
The only fish caught on this line was this 2ld 3oz Skimmer.
which took chopped worm.
The inner line at 5mtrs was fished with a 1.25grm Durafloat
again with size 18 hooks.
Same Baits again but this time ground bait was not used.
I had a one more skimmer, a few Roach and Dace
as well as the usual small Perch.

In total I ended up with 5ld 6oz.
Most were caught on Caster, except the Perch
which loved the Maggot as usual.

This photo shows the biggest Roach and smaller Skimmer.
Watch out for Ferry Boat No 7
the skipper kept trying to hit the end of my Pole with the boat.
Think a letter to the harbour master is required.
