  • Lower Broadheath/Jam factory

    I have a match next month on Sycamore pool at Lower Broadheath and was wondering if anyone on here has any advice on best method and tactics to fish it.

    Sorry I posted this in the wrong place but can't move it, so if the mods can delete I will post in the right place.

    You cant beat corn or pellet there, but have a look at some of the previous post on matches that have been held there

            Paste isn't allowed.
            Corn & meat will catch.

              If you can catch in the margin then thats the place to be as there are a lot of double figure fish.

                Thanks for all the help, having never fished it going in completely blind. Hadn't considered waggler shallow but will certainly give that a go. Is this because the fish tend to be out of pole range?

                I always set up for a margin line, what are the margin depths like on this lake?

                Will certainly let you know how I get on match isn't for 3 weeks so will keep my out for anymore results that might get posted too.

                  Water level is low at the moment with depths between 1ft & 2.5ft. There is a clay shelf around most of the pool covered by only a few inches of water, you will see the carp when they arrive . Avoiding foul hooking them is the problem

                      Sycamore Pool is permanently pegged, the pegs nearest the car park are consistent. I'd be happy with 1 - 5 & 19 - 24.

                        Thanks for all the help, it turned out to be a real struggle Saturday with the winning weight only being 48lb from peg 2. I managed 2nd place from peg 21 with 33lb 14oz. couldn't get a touch on the deck and majority of my fish were caught on pellet at 5' deep at 11m. 3rd place came from peg 1 with I think it was 22lb. The wind was strong and blowing down towards the car park end, which made holding the pole steady a real challenge and bait presentation a struggle. The margins just never happened with out a single fish being caught there in the whole match.

                          well done Webbo1, it seems the info was a help albeit not the waggler shallow. Thanks for letting us know how you got on

                            Must confess to not trying the waggler shallow, got the waggler rod out looked at the wind and waves going accross from right to left in front of me and decided not to set it up. I know a ripple is nice when fishing shallow but I didn't think the float would stay in one place long enough to feed it correctly.
