visit to Yatehouse Pool has come after three successive sub zero
nights.On viewing the water decided on a peg that would give me the
option of fishing tight to the island & reed bed & also
water. I feed one line at 11m with 4-5 maggots every other put in, one
line at 9m with 6-8 grains of hemp every 15 minutes, & a 3rd
at 12.5m by the island, this was fed with chopped worm &
started on the maggot line at 11.00am which produced a small roach
nearly every put in. Occasionally I'd try chopped worm by the island,
this produced nothing until 1.30pm, which was a nice plump perch just
topping the 2lb mark. after this I went onto my hemp line which
produced a small roach every put in. Every now and again I'd drop in on
the island line but this didn't turn up any more fish.
finished at 3.00pm with a small net full of roach, nothing over 2oz,
but a good quality perch made up for this.
Yatehouse Pool 5th February 2007
New member Pete Boyle from Warrington was keen to use his new
club card and his first port of call was Yatehouse Pool on a
freezing cold February day. Pete had a nice Roach on his first
put in using float fished maggot. Over the next couple of hours
he managed another ten decent Roach and Perch. On his way back he
decided to call at Primrose Pool and using similar tactics had a
bite every chuck from Roach, Skimmers and Crucian Carp. As Pete
himself has said, not bad for a freezing cold February day.
