There's a lot of cats in there so I would maybe use particles, not that that will stop them as they eat anything. I would normally say a decent fish meal bait but cats love fish meal so maybe not???

On heron though you want a quality fish meal I think, like Odyssey xxx, Malarkie or shrimp/liver shellfish from trent baits. Only been once but the guy in the peg the week before me fished cell and blanked all week - conditions were no different to when I was there so the bait might have had something to do with it - who knows though, he could have been using PVA hooks.

Thanks Denty and David1985
Im there from the 25th April till the 2nd May , we have booked the kingfisher lake.
can't believe they want to charge 12.50 for 2.5kg of particle !! I was told by Evelyne that they don't like people
to bring there own particle onto the complex.

I took 20kg of boilie and about 15 kg of hemp, maize and pellet. You are right the freezer space is quite tight. I wrapped mine up in 1kg bags, froze it and then took a kg out at a time from my car. I put 5kg of boilie in the freezer. By the end of the week the particle was quite wiffy that was left in the car but it lasted probably 5 days in those bags.

I didn't use anywhere near all of the bait I took. Brought probably 15kg of bait back but had 12 fish to 57lb from Heron lake. Amazing place

Hi Guys,

I'm off to Abbey Lakes End of April for the week,
What's the bait situation like, I hear only 5kg pp can be stored in the freezer as they only have
one freezer for the whole complex?
Has anyone taken there own particle with them or did you use the Abbey particle

thanks

Hi Daniel, if you go on Rupert Whitemens face book page he has a peg guide for Heron. Shame he's not there any more.

People start there trips at different times though so a hat would never work.
I'm going in March, Thursday - Monday, if you turned up on a Saturday then you take what's left.
I was under the impression you couldn't get on the lake until the bailiff opens up each day so the bucket in the swim the night before shouldn't be allowed and I would be having a word with the bailiff if I rocked up at 7am before it opens up and people starting the same time as me have already picked there swims.

That's the only thing that's stopping me from going back. It's a great place to fish. but if your fishing for a week and your in a group, how would you fill if there's people already fishing etc on your lake?

The only thing I don't like about Abbey lakes is, It's first come first serve. people where walking around the lakes at night and putting a bucket in the swim their wanted (night before their were fishing) so be aware first times

Well to be honest, kingfisher is as good as wildbore. Just the fish are much bigger.
Only trouble is, the time your going the cats will be just waking up.

Not really. They should be well spread out in April so you will be fine.
The New guy seems ok. Time will tell.
