Esthwaite Water Trout Fishery

Esthwaite Water Trout Fishery Report - 30/10/12
TROUT FISHING
Well what can I say, despite the tricky fishing for the trout lately there has been some truly quality back end sport reported. Our long standing Brown Trout record of 10lb 13oz has been obliterated by Paul Little with a fantastic fish of 12lb 7oz. Paul caught and safely released this fin perfect fish while boat fishing with a Heddon Lucky 13 lure. Well done Paul, this fish couldn't of fallen to a better angler.
Hawkshead Angling club member Dave Margerson bank fished the top end of the lake and recorded Brown Trout of 3lb 8oz and 9lb respectively on spinner. Both fish were released safely. Meanwhile Dave Smith from Milton Keynes fished from the boats and reported a Brown Trout of 10lb exactly, which fell to a Savagear spinnerbait. Again the fish was safely released.
Visiting angler Graham Howarth from the U.S.A landed a brace of brownies while employing a mepps spinner from the boats. Grahams best fish was 1lb 8oz.
Fly angler Geoff Wilkinson from Hertfordshire took 4 brownies from the boats to 2lb +. A combination of minkies and daddies did the damage for Geoff on a floating line.
Adrian Trumper from Lincoln took 3 brownies to 1lb 8oz on floating line and nymph combination.
Meanwhile 11 year old Sebastian Corry from Chester fished spinner from the bank and took a fantastic 7lb Brown Trout , that again was safely released. Well done Seb', that's something to tell your mates when you return to school.
PIKE FISHING
The well fed Pike which reside in this venue have been tough to catch recently, however for those that have persevered there have been some crackers reported.
First up Big s club member Chris Harris fished 2 days from the boats, employing deadbaits and lures and recorded fish of 21lb and 20lb, plus 12 doubles to 18lb and 2 jacks.
H.A.C member Tim Carswell fished from the banking up the North end of the lake and took a plump 16lb 12oz specimen on static deadbait.
Meanwhile Ryan Burrow from Windermere took a 22lb specimen on static sardine from the car park banking.
Richard Walsh from Stockport hired the assistance of one of the Esthwaite guides to land a personal best 19lb 8oz beauty, again on static sardine from the boats.
Also Steve Greenhalgh from Wigan boat fished and took a nice brace of double figure Pike of 13 and 14lb respectively, again on similar deadbait tactics.
Fish of the season so far at 32lb fell to Gavin Dickson from nearby Burton in Kendal. He cast his lure from the boats and had a very big fish follow to the side. The fish turned and instantly took his static herring deadbait. Well done Gavin , that's a fish of a lifetime, and a personal best. Who knows what this fish will weigh in March!
Don't forget our general coarse fishing season starts on the 1st November and runs until the end of February. This gives anglers a crack at the untapped silver fish potential of the lake. Tickets are �10 per day and anglers can use 2 rods and maggots. Last winter 20-30lb bags of fish were not uncommon. Please telephone the ticket office on 015394 36541 for further details.

Andy's Fishing Diary
Well winter is starting to take hold, the darker nights really bring it home and carp fishing can be hard work. Long recent nights in the bivvy have been made much more bearable since I bought a thermal cover for my Trakker Big Snooze sleeping bag. The cover makes a difference not only to your temperature during the night but also it keeps the bag nice and dry even if you are in and out of the bivvy in your waterproofs. My recent carping, I have to admit, has been an arduous task and the 'Carping Gods' have not been smiling or even thinking about smiling on me. I know my winter tactics are sound, I use high quality baits from Mainline coupled with small pva sticks. My winter stick mixes vary from simple crushed boilie presented with a Cell bottom bait or Mainline flouro pop up to a more potent mixture of crushed boilie mixed with high attract krill powder, you can go to town on the mix if you like adding things like the high attract liquid krill too. I believe that as carp are a cold blooded creatures they really slow down in winter, this goes not only for their feeding habits but also in the way that they sense things in the water, the colder the water the less they will be able to smell, see and feel as their metabolism slows. I think that's why single highly flavoured/coloured baits score well. Things like the Buchu Berry pop ups by Sticky work really well presented on hinge or chod rigs as well as being an excellent accompaniment for a bottom bait fished snowman style. As the winter progresses I'll still be out chasing the carp however I intend to look at a few venues which have winter form, these are often day ticket waters with an abundance of smaller specimens where a run or two in a day session is on the cards. When thinking about choosing a winter venue a good rule of thumb is that shallow waters react first to temperature changes, in other words if we have a week or so of unseasonal warmth a small shallow water will be much more likely to briefly switch on. This rule also applies at the end of the winter, the big deep waters take much longer to warm up and fish can be being caught on shallow lakes much earlier in the year. As I've previously mentioned I've started my pike tutorials and although the sport has so far been mixed we've had a few notable captures. I'm a great believer in keeping things simple but sensitive in terms of presentation and bite indication when targeting pike. I like to fish both ledgered and float fished deadbaits as well as doing a bit of lure work too. One of the keys to successful pike fishing is getting rid of resistance when the pike picks up the bait. I see lots of anglers using carp bobbins and the baitrunner function on the reel, for me these are two big mistakes as the pike will often drop the bait if they feel the slightest resistance. A proper pike drop off indicator is a necessity as the bobbin allows the line to be held tight on the spool with the bail arm open until the pike takes the deadbait and moves off, the line is then free to run resistance free. I promise you that a wary old croc will drop a bait if it feels pressure from the reel or even the lightest carp style bobbin. Try the drop offs and I know you won't go back to carp style front bobbins. The photograph above is from a recent pike tutorial with a very happy chap called Andy with his first ever pike, a 15lb 10oz specimen which was taken on a ledgered roach from Lucebaits. For now the jobs a Gudgeon! Tight lines. Andy

Andy's Fishing Diary
Well I'm back at home after a visit to the Linear fisheries complex near to Oxford. Linear is a brilliant place to fish with seven day ticket lakes which all hold an impressive head of big carp and pike. Linear also offers some fantastic tench fishing and good quality facilities. I try to get down to there at least once a year, my trip last year resulted in me landing nine fish in five nights on the St. Johns lake. Eight of these were carp up to 28lb, I also caught one of the large catfish which live in the crystal clear waters of St. Johns, this beast tipped the scales at 56lb 2oz. My tactics had been quite simple, fishing one rod to a clear spot under an over hanging tree and baiting up after each fish, the other rod was fished over a silty area which I found with my marker rod. I baited the spot heavily with around 5 kilos of spodded boilie, again topping up with the throwing stick after each fish. I used simple bottom bait rigs with Gardner Mugga size 10 hooks. I love the Muggas and frankly if they can help me land a 56lb cat after a long fight they'll help you too! Unfortunately the fishing Gods didn't smile on me this time and I left after a very enjoyable, but blank, three nights. I again fished St. Johns, I had found a swim that was sheltered from the cold north easterly winds which offered me nice silty spot in twelve feet of water behind a gravel bar at around 70 yards, it seemed perfect. However the carp didn't agree! The cold northerly winds, sub-zero night time temperatures, high air pressure and a full moon didn't help much either, but like most anglers I take the chance to go fishing whenever I can. I think blanking is a part of big fish fishing and something we have to endure, I don't particularly enjoy it but if we caught lots of fish every time we wouldn't value our prize captures anywhere near as much as the ones we've had to really work for. Anyway that's my story and I'm sticking to it! On another note, my pike fishing tutorials have started with a bang, they come thick and fast now for a few weeks so I hope to be able to share a few photographs with you in the next couple of weeks. My bait freezer is full of my favourite Lucebaits dead baits, my personal favourites are roach, mini smelt and the lamprey sections. I'm fishing a 48h carp pairs match this coming weekend, I have feeling that bright pop ups might offer a few advantages on chod or hinged stiff rigs and snowman hair rig presentations, if any of this does work I'll let you in on how I tie them in my next write up.
For now the jobs a Gudgeon!
Tight lines. Andy

Top Tip from Sticky
Boost your boilies this Winter
With Autumn now drawing to a close, and the truly cold months banging on the door, a lot of anglers tend to ditch boilies and spend their time on the bank sat behind three single hook baits, but I ask why? Carp still need need food throughout the winter, just not as much, so reduce the amount and give what bait you do put in a kick of attraction and nutrition. The combination of pure krill liquid and powder is perfect.
Coat the boilies in the liquid first, then shake them up with a load of powder so that it sticks and forms a flaky layer on the surface. The result is freebies bursting with attraction. Why not give it a go this winter?

Korda Fake Food
Pop Up Corn
Korda's first release in the Fake Food range is this pop-up imitation corn. It's Danny Fairbrass' baby, and here's what he has to say about it:
"I have put a great deal of time and effort into formulating a bespoke range of plastic hook baits to cover almost any angling situation, worldwide. Our baits are different from anything else because they contain our favourite flavour/attractor combinations arrived at after years of making our own pop-ups, actually moulded into the plastic. These flavour combinations are as follows,
I.B. - Ali's Illegal bast###s, a blend of several fruits that is now legendary.
Pink Fruity Squid - blend of the best squid and several fruity attractors.
White Banoffee - Danny's most recent favourite that has caught him huge fish all over Europe
Green Citrus Zing - a blend of exclusive citrus flavours, made to make their mouth water.
All come with free hair stops that pull up inside the bait so the hair cannot be seen from above, a trick taken from some of the best plastic users in the country.
A small but deadly range that will soon dominate the plastic baits scene.

Sonik SK3 Rods
Already a proven winner with a great casting action, these rods are engineered with 10% more power in the butt section to improve your casting distance, whilst still retaining supreme sensitivity in the tip for playing fish.
Light and well balanced in the hand, they feature a full Japanese shrink wrap handle, which is contoured for comfortable grip. Total performance at a price that all can afford.
"I've used them both at home and abroad and I simply cannot fault them. From accurately casting big bags of maggots to tight marks, to playing big strong carp from a boat in France, they have been exceptional" - Nick Helleur.
SK3 Rods 3 for 2 plus a free margin rod 2.7lb �239.99
