Match 1 – Vineyard 31/03/2019

Moorhen Pool

16 fished

We begin our new season with a visit to Vineyard Fishery at Half Penny Green. Moorhen pool is predominantly a carp water with fish averaging around 3lb but there are also the odd bream to around 8lb as well as plenty of roach to 2lb. Using micro or 2mm pellets as feed and then fishing a bigger 4 or 6mm banded expander pellet over the top. Keep the pinging or potting the feed in and keep moving the bait for more bites.

There was very little difference between to top three weights as the final frame shows with only 6lb between 1st and 3rd place. The bulk of the weights were made up of carp to 3lb.

The margins were productive.
