Kingfisher fished well during the winter carp to nearly 25 Kg, I know during the season when the catfish start moving there are mostly catfish anglers on the lake who use boats (rowing and bait) to position their baits, if its quiet you should be OK, fish close to the surface weed and you can catch by both day and night. Only downside is the trains! Like a 747 coming through your bedroom window at 0600 hours, they are quiet between 2300 and 0600 hours though lol

Braided mainline does tend to cut through weed much better than nylon, just remember to use tubing or a nylon leader to protect the fish from any potential damage.

I find braid useful due to lack of stretch as well, the way I fish in the weed is quite tight to the lead(braid in the weed isn't going to spook anything)drop of lead and fishing quite a tight clutch. On the pick up the fish loses the lead and unable to run at speed comes to the surface. Bite indication is almost instant and you are then playing a fish at the surface rather than all ready in the middle of a weedbed.

Thanks lads for clearing up a few things

As for using braided mainline ive heard this before is this used for mainly cutting through the weed? i see in this weeks carptalk that barry& ben Oconnor have been out there lately and there using Gardner hydro TUFF as mainline .

In previous years we have allowed you to bring your own rowing boat for any fish that get weeded up, but only from June onwards, as before they just are not needed.

There are several boats on site that Ru, the bailif, has access to if needed.

It is planned that you will still be able to bring your own boats as in previous years, if this changes it will be on the website.

On Kingfisher lake you are allowed boats all year, not just to land fish but to bait up as well.

This year we (last 6 months) we have been treating with a new biological weed treatment. It has had an effect,but does take time.

All the swims are really well defined, by large trees, bushes, undergrowth etc. All as mentioned, each swim has a board showing that swims water.

Anyone fishing into another anglers water WILL be asked to leave.....

Absolute rubbish mate, there is plenty of room between swims, the water you can fish is clearly marked on a board at the back of each swim. Loads of water to each swim .
Boats are only allowed later on in the year when the weed really gets up, have a look on their site, it'll tell you on there.

There seems to be a lot of stories about people fishing your water from opposite with their bait boats, and people setting up right next to you because there are no defined swims.

Is this true? And if so are the baliffs on hand to resolve things like this?

Perhaps someone from abbey would like to clarify what the rules are on using boats are to free weeded fish and I was also recommended after being there for six days that they recommend using mainline braid by the baliff didn't say that on the website either perhaps it has been updated now I'm not sure
