Evening all,

Heron's fishing slow but improving as the weather turns. There are 2 swims I have closed, although I am open to offers (dependant on ability) on whether or not you can fish P12.

There really is no need to use a boat on Kingy, looking for spots is handy but once you're over 15', even the clarity can't help you so it's far easier to stay on terra firma and use a bare lead to do the work for you! I have just finished a 10 night sesh on P5 and didn't take to the water for any of the fish I caught. The trick is to drop the lead and then coax the fish through the upper layers, sounds complicated but saves pulling their lips off and/or trashing the swim by rowing over it every time you get a fish!! It is also a very easy tactic to master and saves a lot of messing around during your session..

Regards (good) pegging on Heron right now, I'm not at liberty to say (but aim for the opposite end to the clubhouse) or 20, 23 as dark horses. Shhhh

Do you think its essential !! to use a boat on kingfisher in early to mid spring or does it remain abundant year round. Thanks in advance.

hi guys me and my oldman fished heron last year, i cant remember the swim number but it was the end of the spit opposite the island. we decided to go with a few different strategies, we used the cell as it was a known catcher there and also took another bait ( liver and tuna acebaits) , we decided to bait one area very heavy right off the island in front of us. and a few margin spots. other rigs were cast in bags. i have to say that it was the bagged rods with just a handful of boilies over it that produced the most fish, but we took the larger carp towards the latter end of the week off the large heavily baited areas. the large area baited was with cell, the boilie that produced most the fish for us was liver and tuna they loved it, we mixed it up with different boilie sizes and just a simple bolt rig, the venue is lovely, and everythign you need is there. the carp are stunning, we took a good few fish with the biggest being a 47lb mirror, also had a 45lb common, but some real lumps in there, one guy had a 62lb out our week. we went first week of september. dont ignore the margins, the amount of times we were up early first light watching the carp mill about right under your rod tips. also dont go tight to the island and features, the carp were taken about 10 yds off of them. top place and really enjoyed it with some stunning fish and great people that work there. food was top notch.
wish i was there now..lol tight lines fellas and keep us posted on what you catch
