Wingham Fish-In dates 2013


Recommended Posts

My short lived advice fishing at Wingham is fish with corn and worms. Both will get you Tench and bream and perch and eels and sadly carp .

groundbait again made up of the above with hemp and crumb...

Leave all that fancy Fanny Fartbrass stuff.

 

Rigs. Choose your own both work well.

 

Plain and simple .....


There is not one thing different between ideology and religeon

ATS I will spill the beans as its you! For several decades the Burkester and my self have been growing two big pike on in an underground holding pen situated under the tractor shed. We have been feedi

Is it Budgie; going for a swim?

Definitely no need to apologise! All will become clear at the Fish-In.

BUDGIE,

 

Alas, I won't be there but I do have an eel question. (what a strange thread this turns out to be). I have never seen or heard of an eel being fair caught on a lure or artifical bait. When you use worm and corn can you use artifical corn?

Do eels EVER fall to artificals?

I've had several on bolt rigged plastics (corn/maggot/caster). Mainly at night.

And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music

Anderoo,

 

Thx.

You know the little artifical "bugs"? I wonder if they would "target" eel. My VERY limited experience is that eel like bugs best. Usually where the wind has blown them into large quantities up against the bank. Or, as an example, behind a wing dam grasshoppers often swirl and sink by the 100's.

(just conversation, I don't know eels, my PB maybe 1.5 lbs and I'm ashamed to say it was put to use as bait)

Hi phone, I have the distinction of catching an eel from a Broadland marina while spinning for Pike, not a big one,around a pound and a bit but fairly hooked. :boat:

All,

 

So I guess they are just fish. Strange fish but just fish. I certainly would not have thought of an eel on the fly.

 

I think the "record" eel in Missouri is about 4 lbs. In clear water you can see them targeting bugs.

Yes, a margin feeding eel expertly stalked with a small PTN.

 

I.e. saw it in the edge and dangled the fly on its nose, and it snapped at it :)
