Hi All

Are there any stretches of the Canal (other than the Giggers Hole) which are good for pike? Somebody told me West Hythe (non-members section) fishes quite well.

Thank you.

Phil's right Mark, well the carp are never in my stretch anyway, Haha!!
Wow that is good going Matt, I doubt there is many people that have had that much success down there, I definately haven't that's for sure ! How do you know if the big girl is dead Adam ? Has it been confirmed or just a rumour going around ?

The big girl is dead

It's a canal Mark so sometimes the fish won't be in a particular stretch, they like to move around. Sometimes you will be miles away from the 30's

I have had 4 different 3olb carp from town stretch plus the big girl twice. There is about 120 carp in canal i had quite alot of them and repeat captures. I had a 29, 26 , 18, 14 all the other night. Dont need you or any one else from shop start poaching me up again Mark. Find your own spots its easy
Mark wrote on 29th October 2015 at 3:43 pm:
Any idea on the number of carp in the canal town stretch. Does any one have genuine idea of number of 30's. Looking to fish this winter.

The rule states "spinning or the use of any lure" is prohibited. The definition of a lure is an artificial fishing bait - so, I guess you can take it from there.
john wrote on 21st October 2015 at 3:30 pm:
is dropshotting and jigging allowed or is it also classed as spinning
Canalman wrote on 17th October 2015 at 4:28 pm:
That may be a reason Carper why the rule has been kept, but is nothing to do with the original reason it was brought in many. many years ago. The canal was much shallower then and the rule was brought in to prevent anglers foul-hooking fish (some deliberately)
Carper wrote on 17th October 2015 at 4:18 pm:
I'm sure there was a discussion on here a while back about the spinning rule and I'm sure one of the reasons spinning isn't allowed is because before the dam it is public footpaths and I'm sure it was something about constantly casting out maybe hooking somebody. As they are quite popular foot paths. I could be wrong but I'm sure it was something like that ! So don't quote me on it.

many thanks canalman for the information if the canal was open to spinning in the winter months it might deter our eastern European friends seeing more club members on the canal once again thanks
Canalman wrote on 17th October 2015 at 9:30 am:
It wasn't exactly clear at the meeting - I think some members considered it would encourage our Eastern European 'friends' to take even more pike from the water. But they do it anyway - and one I spoke to had even been sold a day ticket whilst spinning (in the members section!
john wrote on 16th October 2015 at 2:20 pm:
many thanks canalman what are the main concerns
Canalman wrote on 16th October 2015 at 1:53 pm:
Hi John. I assume you mean between the Dam and Seabrook (where it is currently banned). This was discussed in depth at the AGM and the consensus of those present was that the ban was to continue. The problem we have, of course, is that only the members are complying with the ban - whilst day ticket anglers are regularly flouting it.
john wrote on 16th October 2015 at 1:23 pm:
how do other members feel about not being able to spin on the canal below the dam or should the rules be amended to allow spinning during the winter months depending on water levels

In the past I have just parked along giggers green road or by one of the gates there is enough room to park a car.
Bert wrote on 6th October 2015 at 4:24 pm:
Hi, just curious, with regards to the Giggers Green section of canal, where is parking located? Is it bankside, or wherever is available on Giggers Green Road?
Any help would be great, thanks!

Carper wrote on 25th September 2015 at 5:12 pm:
I'm pretty sure the open day is just once a year in June before the new season starts. Not sure on the beachborough rules as I only fish the canal but the rules are on this website I think so check them out, should tell you everything you need to know !
Josh wrote on 21st September 2015 at 9:06 pm:
Sorry forgot to state the questions relate to 'beachborough lakes'
Josh wrote on 21st September 2015 at 9:04 pm:
is there an upcoming open day here anytime soon? also is it available for night fishing? And can you use boilies/ pop ups?
