I fished Great Danes yesterday for the first time in about 11 years, with some beautiful June weather (!). Really nice to be back. Had a few carp to 8lb. Lost an absolute sea creature, which may well have been Paul's fish above!
Two families of Canada geese have made it home. There's also a cormorant in residence, assume the club are aware/fact of life.

The Canada geese seem to have made it home over the last few years I'm afraid. The cormorant comes and goes. Thanks for the heads up.
Phil. ( Bailiff ) PS Didn't affect your fishing I see...................

Fished at Great Danes on Tuesday afternoon for 4 hours this week 8th October, and had a 3lb common and a 4lb common both on sweetcorn, great fitting fish, really enjoyed the afternoon.

Had a couple of hours at the Danes yesterday afternoon, nice to see the depth of water returning to normal levels. Had two commons  around the 8lb. mark, then a couple of smaller mirrors and larger mirror of about 6lb. there were also a couple of lads from Manchester (guests from the hotel) fishing, I take it that there is an arrangement with the hotel.

Yes Paul, hotel guests are allowed to fish. They have to be actually staying at the hotel and pick up a guest card from the leisure centre.
These guys have been checked by our bailiffs and have shown their room keys as confirmation.

 We need quite a bit of rain to keep the water levels up at the Danes, it quickly runs away.  I've checked quite a few guests over the years Paul. Glad to see some fish coming out as well..... Wink

I had a very enjoyable short session here this morning catching half a dozen carp (2 mirrors amongst them) between 1 and 6lb on a margin feeder, using light lines (6lb &5lb h/l) plus some small silvers. I packed up around 11:40am ish. One catch (the heaviest) had that parrot mouth you refer to in the water description. I used what I thought was the right terminal tackle set up given the description of max expected size, and the old adage about b/s equals about half the target weight (or a third if you are really good at playing fish). Is there a recommended set up for this water?
