TOP TIPS

Fish the Margins
During the vast majority of the year, the middle of the lake is far too deep for the fish to feed on the bottom. Fishing a couple of rod lengths out is all that’s needed.

Zigs
With the lake being so deep, Zigs are a great tactic for fishing in the middle. Adjustable zigs are the easiest way to fish, but it seems spodding slop over them brings the best results.

Pellets
The fish in the lake have been reared all their lives on pellets, so you would be silly to not use some.

Beat the Ban
Plastic and foam hookbaits are banned on Ladywood, so a mixed tub of bright fluoro pop-ups is a great edge to have.

Surface Fishing
Floater fishing is by far the best method to use during the summertime, don’t be put off by the birds, keep filling it in with floaters and the fish will get on them!
