  • Big Fish in the Midlands....

    I'm new to Big specimen fishing, want to start catching some big Carp, tench & Bream.

    Can anyone recommend suitable fisheries in the Midlands???

    Hi Jim, not an easy one to answer,been looking for "bigger" fish in the midlands for the last 40 yrs,the way I see it you have 3 main lines of attack.
    1. find a syndicate water,often expesive,with a dead mans shoes policy and sometimes living on a reputation. the many parks pools,that hold some real specimens but are not the nicest of places and need a cautious approach,but the results can be fantastic.
    3.get down to one of the commies like Earlswood,but only fish "speci" tactics,I don" know why but this produces more of the bigger fish and gives you great confidence in your rigs,baits and methods for use on other venues.
    I mix and match all 3,there have been a few threads on here in the past regading BIG bream venues in our area and apart from Larford and at one time Alvechurch,I take em with a pinch of salt(unless someone wants to post a few pics),Big tench? there might be the odd fish but not worth wasting your time on.
    Carp,Salford,Eddgy,Lifford,Sutton and Cannon Hill all hold some big fish,but they require a bit of dedication.
    Take nothing but photographs,leave nothing but footprints.

                Get on the canal,
                Pick a spot
                BAIT it up over a period of 8 weeks on a regualr basis. and then fish it.
                People never target canals for big carp, and they will be old warriors. propper carp. not like the stockies in most places these days
