I arrived at Candy Corner Fisheries bang on opening time – 7:30 am on the 12th May 2013 all excited in anticipation.
There are 4 Lakes at Candy Corner Fisheries, two main ones in AJ’s and Hoskers, that usually have matches on at the weekend, and then 2 other ponds that are generally for pleasure anglers. AJ’s was fully matched up as expected & Hoskers had a match on pegs 1-15. AJ’s is the largest lake with all fish types in with carp up to 30 Ib. Hoskers is a lot smaller but of similar ilk that holds its own with Carp up to 15 Ib.
I had a walk around Hoskers, getting my bearings and eyeing up where to fish. I decided upon peg 23, for the only reason that it had the best margin reeds.
Fishing on the Pole, I plumbed up, starting all the way to the island, which was about 11 meters away, and working my way back. The deepest part of the pond was the middle/track, so about 5-6 meters out. This is the swim I decided to attack first.
