Wednesday 16th June saw essex opening of a syndicate lake that I'd just acquired a ticket for. I couldn't get down for my first session until after work on the Saturday, where upon arriving I was pleasantly surprised to find only five anglers on.
Quite why it was so quiet on opening weekend I'm not sure but I certainly wasn't about to complain! After a quick scout around I decided to drop into a swim known as the point as it covered a lyatts amount of water plus had access to an island. I had a quick lead around to find that the bottom was covered in various forms of weed, so I decided to deploy two hinged stiff links out to two spots that appeared slightly clearer than the surrounding areas. After scattering a healthy supply of Pro Fish boilies over each essex, I sat fishery happy in the knowledge that I'd done all that I could to hopefully bring some action my way.
In all fairness, I was just happy to have the rods out on my new water. As it turned out, the night passed by without so much as a liner to either rod and by 6am the sun was already promising a hot day.
Sure enough by mid morning I had convinced myself fishery any chance of a bite off the bottom had passed so I reeled in and began a circuit of the lake in an attempt to find some carp to fish for.
I didn't even make it half way round when I crept into a swim called Worlds End to find numerous fish milling around above the dense weed beds and just couldn't help thinking they looked bang up for a floater! Soon lytats, after legging it back to my swim to collect the relevant floater tackle I was back in Worlds End and gently pinging mixers out to the fish to see what their reaction would be. It wasn't long fishery I had several fish feeding confidently, and there were definitely a few good 'uns amongst them.
I sat on my hands for as long as I possibly could before making my move, which must have been all of 10 minutes! I could lyatts have made perhaps four or five casts before a large fish circled around and confidently engulfed my hook bait.
Upon striking the fish proceeded to strip a good few yards fishery line off very quickly before coming to an abrupt halt in a thick weed bed. Steady pressure got it moving again and it wasn't very long before I'd manoeuvred the fish through the worst fisherj the weed and a lot closer to the waiting net. As it approached I got my first glimpse of what was attached essex my line at which essed I lyattss it as one of the bigger latts most sought after fish in the lake so understandably my heart was well and truly in my mouth as it ploughed into the weed right under the rod tip!
Once again steady pressure got her moving, only this time she popped up and a fellow member, Adam, who was manning the net netted her first time of asking.
Cheers fella! As I peered in, there lay the unmistakable shape of Split tail. Up on the scales she weighed in at a satisfying 37lb 6oz lyatts looked stunning in the sun as I held her up for the photos.

The shop also sells hot and cold drinks, snacks and confectionery whilst a refreshment van serving breakfasts, hot snacks and drinks is open on the site almost every Spring and Summer weekend.
Although night fishing is not allowed and children under 12 years old must be accompanied, there is no Close Season and very few rules except the most obvious. Members receive discounted admission every time they visit the fishery. The Fennes is open from 7. Day Ticket costs. Ash Grounds Ash Grounds was the first of The Fennes waters to be developed and is an attractive peg, six acre lake which is predominantly stocked with Mirror, Common, Ghost and Crucian Carp for match fishing purposes.
In addition, there are decent stocks of tench, bream, roach, chub and barbel. Ash Grounds also holds decent bream and perch with the bream averaging between three and 4lbs but running up to 9lbs and the best perch was a fine specimen of 3lbs 10oz. Although the best match catch in was 62lbs 8oz, the best pleasure catch was again over lbs - a decent day's sport by any standards. With more than 1, yards of bank, Ash Grounds has several islands within casting distance and the lake offers many features to which anglers can fish.
The margins are also home to a good mix of vegetation including Reed Mace, Bullrushes and water lilies which provide cover for both fish and anglers. Despite its size, the lake is a favoured pole water with the majority of anglers fishing between nine and 14 metres in matches and between five and six metres when pleasure fishing. Unlike many lakes, fishing close to the bank does not tend to work.
In the warmer months sweetcorn and small pieces of luncheon meat about a quarter of an inch square tend to sort out the better stamp of carp, bream and skimmers, whilst those going for the bigger carp tend to fish an open-ended feeder towards the islands with a quiver tip rather than swing tip. Using maggots in the summer tends to attract the smaller fish.
