How is the pool fishing recently ? Not much on the forum ?
Anyone been on lately & how's the weed situation?

I'm currently fishing the pool, and looking at the log, it can be very hit and miss.

Only one 30lb+ fish reported in the log so far this season, but it appears not every angler fishing the pool is completing the log.

Biggest we've had this week, so far, is 28lb 12oz

No weed in the pool, just the odd dead bit on the bottom, but very minimal.

Might explain why it is so patchy regarding captures as, in my 25+ years of fishing the pool, it never fishes as good without any weed in the pool.

No way I expected a lot of weed when I fish it later on this month, it's disappointing people aren't filling in the log, at least your catching fish even though it's a little slow.
Good luck for the rest of your trip :D

Good to see someone using the forum...
I am visiting the pool this weekend with my son's and friend....cant wait !!!
Is it "allowed" to ask for any clues to showing areas, methods baits etc...
First time fishing the pool in the Autumn so curious if fish activity is vastly different from the summer months...
Congrats on the 28lb 12oz...
Being there with my friends and son's is enough...a fish will be a bonus !!

Hello Ray.

I would suggest using the search facility to look through old posts asking pretty much the same thing. Loads of info already shared on the subject and detailed in previous posts.

The truth is, there is no magic formula for catching Redmire fish. If you just use the same tactics and techniques that catch you fish wherever you usually fish, and if the carp gods are smiling on you, you will catch at Redmire too. That is of course as long as they are 'having it'.

Watch the water, obviously, and ALWAYS keep an eye on the shallows. The resident swans can be a pest if you try to use floaters or if you bait up in less than about 4 and a 1/2 foot of water. If you do decide to bait up in shallower water than that, just be aware of where the swans are at all times as the last thing you need is to hook one of them buggers. Can be hard work, though very entertaining for the others on the pool. :roll:

Over recent seasons October and November have been amongst the best months for fish captures. At least according to the old Redmire Logs, which is where most anglers write of their observations and captures during their session.

But most importantly, just enjoy. Time flies by faster at Redmire than anywhere else I have ever been.

Charlie and I are there in December and I really appreciate the advisory words. It will be the first time we've fished it in the Winter and the lack of weed will make for an interesting approach. Normally, we've had masses of weed to contend with and therefore this forthcoming expedition will be more than interesting, if short on daylight hours!! Wish us luck! :D

I'm doing the weekend of 24th to 26th November so will share any info I glean while I'm there. Be sure to jog my memory though cause my old memory ain't what it was! :roll:

Hello Jon,

Unfortunately none of the 4 of us had any bites. But I think it fair to say that we didn't fish as effectively as we might have.

I heard 3 fish crash out to the left of the Stumps swim on the Saturday night. And one of my mates saw one stick it's head out close to the far bank looking out from Pitchfords.

The nights were cooler than of late and I suspect the weather turning just before we arrived did us no favours either.

But I think it fair to say, from my point of view, that there is more to fishing at Redmire than merely catching fish. Which is just as well for me on this occasion.

Effort equals reward. We put in minimal effort and therefore achieved minimal reward. :oops: :roll:

Oh bum, there in a couple of weeks, not looking too good for some action, but as you say, soak in the atmosphere and relax

Unfortunately we were unable to fish as the weather was too cold leaving the pool frozen! Disappointing, but there you go.

So sorry to hear that Charlie. The pool doesn’t freeze easily so it must have been very cold for a good few days to snap the lid shut.
