My third yorkshire fishing social match was at the prolific Lindholme Lakes on the Strip pond.
I was really looking forward to this one, knowing there would be a lot bigger stamp of fish available, with carp in the 5 to 10 Ib bracket not unusual.
The forecast for the day was overcast and windy, but with decent temperatures. I drew peg 10, and having not studied the pegs before I hadn’t a clue where this would be. It turned out being a corner peg, with the wind blowing into it. Bang on the money!
A very miserable day with high winds made it difficult fishing on the pole today at Lindholme Lakes.
With 8 lakes, I thought I’d chance it and arrive without enquiring whether there would be any pegs available for pleasure fishing. I was lucky as I asked the man in the tackle shop, and he said no, but a guy in the other room stated a few had come up on the Oasis Lake, Pegs 51 – 64. Lesson learnt, from now on I will always ring the pond before hand!
Not knowing much about any of the lakes here apart from the odd bits I have read online, I headed to peg 60. It had a few far bank markers, and a nice feature margin to my right, so this is where I settled for the day.
