Sorry mate I thought you were just describing our session.
To be honest I reckon the area I fished would hold fish at any time of the year.

I was thinking of them having not woken up properly yet and still being in the deeper areas in the comfort of the weed.

To be fair Josh all my bites came from an area that was steadily baited.
I would class my swim as a corner swim and would happily fish it again.

From what I saw and found fishing my end of keep away from the corners as they seemed to be fairly shallow.

As you walk in from the car park if you follow it to the left, those swims along there after the reeds in the ďopenĒ water were quite deep. I found a nice gravelly channel 5 rod lengths out in the second to last swim on that bank, it was 14foot deep and up against a harsh thick weedbed, I hooked a fish and lost it at the net off that spot. The swim after that is very shallow so thereís a drop off there somewhere.

Hello mate, first thing Iíd say is to have a rod ready each, donít do what we did!

They rest the lake in between bookings, when we turned up there were fish everywhere. If we would have crept into a swim each and sat for the first few hours with a little trap Iím sure we would have nearly all had one straight away. We did a lap of the lake, did a draw, got all our gear to swims etc, they all disappeared for 24hrs.

Bream and Crays werenít a problem but go easy on the bait and like Ian said I think most of our fish all came to baits on the smaller side. Iíd take some maggots and corn too

We had no issues with bream or crays at all. Just keep things simple, and bait small traps, keep your lines out of the way, keep quiet and you should have a few. Smaller baits seemed to work better

Our annual social is coming up in about three weeks, at Burghfield Gold Lake.

Four of us fishing for four days.

Any tips and/or recommendations?

Looking at the lake map it seems clear we need to split up so as not to push the fish into any unfished areas.

Other than that, is it pretty straight forward?

I was told lots of bream and crayfish, but Iíve asked here previously about the crays and consensus was theyíre not an issue.

Thanks

James
