Hi Steve,

1 on Heron is the swim nearest the Clubhouse (u lazy sod ) as u drive up to the lake and the pegs are then numbered along that bank and round, down along the track between Fox and Heron. 23 backs on to Fox 1!

Not the most productive either, far better to get in 23 and fish across once the weed's up

Regards,

Ru

Has anyone got a map of heron with the peg numbers on or can tell me where peg 1 is and which way round the lake do the pegs go up, i know the lake quite well, fished fox half a dozen times and had the odd night on heron.

I reckon she'll be out again soon........massive fish like Shoulders, GM, etc......all need to binge at this time of year thus unless you lose her, she'll be making someone very happy again soon in my humble opinion

Hi gents,

Just to clear up a point of some confusion..

ROWING BOATS ARE NOT PERMITTED AT ABBEY UNTIL IT IS SHOWN ON THE MAIN ABBEYLAKES.COM OR ANGLING INTERNATIONAL WEBSITES LATER IN THE SEASON!!

Many thanks,

Ru

Just by dumping the lead and learning where the weed beds are should avoid the need for a boat, however in extreme cases hand lining the fish directly above them in a boat is the safest and less likely to damage the fish........just make sure you wear a life jacket

PS anyone on Heron 26th April?

If everybody stopped fishing the Kontour way and used tight lines as it is after all one of the weediest venues around in high summer then perhaps you wouldn't need a boat I managed to bank nearly 400 fish last season and had to resort to using a boat on less than 5 occasions! Tighten your lines up ever so slowly until they're like bowstrings and then just peel 5-10ft back off the reel, this amount in conjunction with the natural stretch in the mono is ample and will still give excellent bite indication.... Fishing slack lines cos it's fashionable is daft and on a weedy water containing 250 fish over 40lbs, unacceptable! It shouldn't be the fishery's duty to provide boats so people can go and wrestle fish out of weedbeds, quite often damaging them as a result just because Mr X said if they didn't fish everything on the deck, they wouldn't be cool enough to use his bobbins!!!!

Keep it real kids xx

Just a quick reminder, Rowing boats are currently ONLY allowed on Kingfisher.

IF the weed gets really bad and fish are being regularly weeded up, then we will announce on the web site that rowing boats are allowed for the freeing of weeded fish.
