Me and Mike went today. I lost 2 carp, Mike caught one carp and lost two. Plenty of roach, rudd, skimmers and a few ide- not as many as usual though. It was a bit hard today to be honest- no carp on the top like they usually are. Didnt see anyone else catch a fish- 2 blokes I spoke to were both blanking. One old chap was catching carp, on floating bread, which I thought was not allowed at Aston. Just checked rules and you can use floating baits but not feed any. This old chap however had fed half a sliced loaf in!
Saturday could be a struggle but someone will get some carp I'm sure. As Phil was told they seem to be shoaled up somewhere. Someone I spoke to said its fished poorly since they spawned. Alex said its fishing well. Believe what you will.
Far side is better unless you like fishing on a road and moving your pole every two minutes! Margins very shallow by the way, less than a foot where we were.
Had a few hours here this morning fished mainly the maggot feeder as the wind was blowing down towards the bottom endsaw about 5 Carp come out but those that caught them said it was slow? I had a word with Alex about the tackle theft he said they left the car doors unlocked and has put a patrol type of thing for his staff to keep an eye on the car park,I know its not right but leave anything in a unlocked car and you can expect the worst,not nice though. caught plenty on the feeder but there was a lot of 4 oz fish to get through before the bigger Ide came on to feed.
There is a small area for cars just as you enter Aston Park gate on the left. Parked there yesterday, not enough for 16 cars though. If we are on the far side there is a tricky bit to get trolley over just as you go on the dam wall. Its like a big speed bump! The road is a bit better than last time we fished there but take it steady as there are still some pot holes.
while we are waiting for Rich to get the photo's and results up on site can people let me know via pm any matches they will not be available for this season because of hol's etc gives us a chance to get people in if we are really short for any.Thanks

I did that Kel I asked people to pm me so they would not be broadcasting for all to see when they are away from home, may be me being a bit over cautious but a policeman once told me never advertise when you are away.
