A brief account of my time spent with a few friends at Lloyds Meadows throughout the summer months and the great success I have had trying out Monster Lobster paste feeding micro pellets and plenty of them.
It started off on a sweltering Sunday afternoon with fellow blogger Danny Bellfield and a short walk up to Heron, plenty of silvers in the morning then an afternoon of carp on the new Monster Lobster paste I’m testing.
My next trip out to Lloyds Meadows was with fellow match team angler Dave Williams from Warrington Angling Centre and we decided to fish Kingfisher a short session but some quality fish.
With the school holidays in full flow myself and Stu had a special treat for Lucas and Kieran…..a spot of night fishing was on the menu and WOW did we catch lots of fish spread over the two days added into the fun and none stop smiles from the kids we couldn’t have asked for anything better!
Kingfisher today presented another chance for me to get back on the paste and try to get some of the big carp hiding away but for most of the day they were basking around up in the water and not feeding, lucky enough for us we was feasting on breakfast barms off Sarah and a brilliant birthday cake for me off Stu!
We still managed to get a few fish on a day were the conditions just didn’t suit fishing.
Myself and Lucas decided to fish Kingfisher again but this time we didn’t arrive until 3pm the sun was still up but the fishing into the cooler evening was great fun and none stop action, and with Danny and his daughter fishing next to us there was a bit of banter as well, the paste and pellets approach was devastating.
Not one to miss a opportunity we decided to fish Badger lake on the bank holiday Monday which the previous day had produced good close match weights.
Trolley loaded up and we headed off to the far side of the lake which I had not fished before, such a great day fishing again on pellets and paste feeding micros and 4mm pellets, what stood out for me today was a superb match lake which made you work for your fish swapping swims around and tinkering with float patterns keeping you busy if you wanted the rewards.
I suppose those of you who are regular visitors to Lloyds Meadows can all understand its takes a few visits because these fish dont just jump on your hook but when you get it right there is not many places that can rival it for quality fishing………im realy looking forward to the winter fishing here and hopefully get some great bags of Ide, Chub, Roach and Bream aswell as the massive Perch that are in Heron lake.
as always its been a pleasure Brian
