Furnace Lakes Is In Excellent Form For Silverfish Nets

AS the dark nights draw in and the temperatures begin to ebb
away, the carp fishingregulars at Furnace Lakes slip off for their
winter of hibernation making way for match and pleasure rods to enjoy
world class silverfish sport.


The Sussex complex has hit the headlines on numerous occasions this
year for throwing up large mirrors, commons and even catfish but it is
the bream and skimmers that are now the main focus, with 70lb plus hauls
a genuine possibility.
The six acre, 40 peg, Furnace Lake is the
most prolific on the six pond fishery and pole anglers that have already
latched on to this cold weather gem have been bagging up on a weekly
basis. The lake is very mature and Although it is predominantly a carp
water it is also well stocked with tonnes of skimmers, roach and big
perch to 3lb as well as bream to 6lb.



For the silverfish two different attacks will work, with an
expander pellet over micros and worm and caster over groundbait both
producing the goods.
Set up two lines at around 13m out and make sure
they are well spread out. Feed one with five big balls of fishmeal
based groundbait to begin with and a big pot of micros over the other.
Expect
most of the fish to be just under the 1lb mark, although bonus fish of
4lb can show up at any point. The fishery runs a number of silverfish
open matches throughout the winter for those that are interested.



TIP: Use a bulk shot around 2ft above your hook with two droppers
below so your hookbait falls slower through the bottom layers, skimmers
won’t always be found hard on the deck.
