Do not go without a dinghy.

Hi Ru

Any recent weed updates on Heron. How imperative is it going to be to have a boat to land fish?

Much been coming out?

Cheers

Hi mate..

Best tip for fishing 19 is.... Don't rush in there without having a bloody good look elsewhere first! Fish aren't (always) in residence round there at that time of year. Far better to attack the front right hand side of the island from 9, or get in 11, 12, 13 or 14. Again, 14 is a honey trap for bods due to the 'amount of fish it produces' BUT everything is relative and if u stack up what the rest of the lake produces during the course of a season then I'd only ever get in there if the water is cloudy if it's gin clear then swerve that one n all!! A dark horse for early season is 23, especially if there's a strong (and WARM) SW blowing!

Check waaaay back on this thread for a more informative run through of all the pegs on Heron and if u ask nicely, hopefully some swim maps for the lake along with some for Kingfisher and Attila within a fortnight, work permitting....

Regards,

Ru

I was booked on to heron but when we got there it was really packed, I decided to do 3 nights on Attila and had 16 fish to 34lb then move to fox for 2 nights as there was space and managed 1 nice mirror jus over 30 but it's full of cray fish as well, I did my final 2 nights in peg 2 on heron and managed a mid 30 common, I used my boat and fished bout 2kg pellet and boilie, only managed 1 fish from there but had 5 30's from 3 of the lakes, would of loved a 40 but who wouldn't, hope u guys do well,
RU on here will pretty much tell u anything u want to know, listen to him he knows the lakes as much as any one

Iggy how many did you manage last year and how long were you there for? We arrive on the 7th of Sept for four days, i have a rowing boat and bait boated already sorted (thank god).

Did you fill it in with bait, i have been told to fish 3-4kg of pellet and boilie over each rod and top it up after every fish.. pretty standard i think.

I fished heron last September. Ur rods will be fine just make sure u drop the lead so the fish r up, the weed was bad but mainly a massive bank in the margins, the top end was little worse. Bait boats handy but not a must. I'd say a rowin boat is more needed if there allowed this year for gettin fish out the weed

Morning guys,

Heading over to Abbey (Heron) in september with a friend and have a couple of questions for the abbey experts..

I currently use the harrison ballista slims 12ft 2.75 (which i love) but am having concerns regarding the power of these rods after hearing about the weed problems on Heron. Will an upgrade be required?

Also i have access to a bait boat (best friend) with an ECHO on board, would you guys reccomend taking this again due to the weed on Heron?

Thanks again

Billy

P.s the fully scaled in the pic below is a beaut!

Thanks Ru

Just came back from 3 nights on Fox peg 1, then Heron peg 23 then Fox peg 10.......struggled but managed a 42 fully scaled animal.....tore me up and down and round and round the Fox whilst wiping out several other lines! insane fish but truly stunning....will get a pic up soon

Ended up with 4 but ran out of time and they seemed to be sulking from the hiding they've had recently......met a few sound Guys notably John from Chesire.....a Guy called Ali Hamidi and someone else called Jamie O'hara.....answers on a post card lol

PS Thanks to Hans for everything and apologies to Seb.....I'll mail you Mate
