Oct 04 2003, 14:32 (UTC+0)
From: colinj :
   North Suffolk Anglers are reeling this week over news that a second low 20's Carp has come from Oulton Broad, This time the 22lb fish fell to floatfished Lobworm from the free jetty by the Boulevard. The captors remain anonymous but local sources tell me they were holiday anglers after perch. Where these fish have come from remains a mystery.

   Aberdeen, Scotland: The European Commission's [EC] Director-General of Fisheries, Jörgen Holmquist, told an audience in Brussels earlier this week: "Some of the accusations [against the fish farming industry] that we have seen in the media do not appear to be justified by scientific evidence."

Winter fishing at BW PI makins fishery (wolvey)
Nov 23 2004, 12:12 (UTC+0)

severn pool (phase 3)

d.j.addi writes: Winter fishing at makins usually can be quite hard unless you fish there two or three times a year the best pools usually can be pool 1 and 4(phase 1) or all of phase 2 + 3. Pole fishing usually works well with light lines and small hooks but beware of unexpected bonus fish that might just snap you up. on Phase 1 maggots and corn are good for carp and roach but beware of bigger fish, float fishing with corn and maggot is a good way of fishing. The 'method' is good with single dead red maggot on a small hook. For carp anglers their is a good chance of a first '20' using brightly coloured boilies on a hair rig is a brilliant bait. Phase 2 + 3 are the basically the same way of fishing using the pole and corn or maggot and the method with dead red maggot. fishing in the margins is a brilliant way of fishing.
