Current Fishing - 09th January

Coarse, Carp & Trout

Coarse Fishing - 09th January

Following the winter doldrums in the lead up to Christmas then followed by the New Year (Happy New Year to everyone!) fishing has been slow. Saturday 7th January, plenty of fish being spotted on the Main Lake in the late afternoon and early evening as dusk drew in. Overnight was a very heavy frost and Sunday 8th Jan was very cold. The few anglers who turned up on Sunday although they caught Carp and other fish they all struggled to land any. Local lass Bethan Jones losing the best Carp of the day - blaming the hook to nylon came untied! [Always a good lesson - check your knots before fishing.] All went home early as it was so cold.

Coarse Fishing - 16th October

Clive Erret with his 3lb 1oz Roach

Mike Olive with his brace of Trout

The best fish of the past week has definitely been Clive Erret's 3lb 1oz Roach. Caught on 2 white maggots using his top-2 pole kit from the promontory in the Main Lake.

Two days later Clive then lands this 13lb 14oz beautiful Grass Carp, caught on a single sweetcorn.

There I am telling everyone Trout fishing is a little slow, and along comes local angler, Mike Over of Aberystwyth, to prove everyone wrong. Confident as ever, fishing a 3 fist ticket he eventually tries a bibio just under the surface and had another great day with us as he caught his 3 Trout with the best at 3.5lb. On his completed return he wrote "a great day - as always".

31st March 17lb Common CarpRob Keeling with a 17lb common carp The best fish during May was a 17lb Common caught by a visiting angler. Then a few days later a 14lb Common and a few around 8lb including an almost black common. There are plenty 3lb+ and over.
Many small Roach in the margins and plenty 6oz and over with quite a few pushing the lb mark. A few chub, the best around 2lb, the occasional bream and barbel too. Very few tench showing.
Fishing is generally slow in the mornings, especially with the eastern breeze, fishing just gets better as the afternoon progresses through the evening. Sweetcorn catching but luncheon meat is the better bait. Surface fishing for carp in the afternoons with blue skies giving excellent sport.

Trout fishing

good in all pools with many anglers catching their limit, mainly montanas, viva and diawl bach.

Comments & Feedback

E-mail from local angler Richard Bradley, received February 23rd 2017, after fishing in our Main lake.
Dear Bill,
Just a quick line to let you know how much I enjoyed my short
visit on Monday 20th February. Although it was quite windy the air temperature had risen a lot and the carp were very active. They came up to my floating bread and I managed to catch twelve fish in a couple of hours weighing up to ten pounds.
The fish were in excellent condition and I think that provided the weather doesn’t turn cold the fishing should get even better in the coming weeks.
The water was quite coloured and there was plenty of evidence the fish were also feeding on the bottom from the ‘mud clouds’ being stirred up.
I hope to be with you again soon.
Kind Regards

Getting ready for the last round of the Gb Fishing Angling Centre Silver Fish Only League at Nine Oaks Fishery
Thank you to Basil Coates for supporting this league again this year and to Bill for a fantastic venue.
See you all 9am tomorrow

Previous catches:-

After re-stocking the Trout lakes on 28th January, average size of 2.5lb per fish. Slight increase to reflect larger fish.

7th February - Ceredigion Winter League. It started cold, and blustery then the rain started about mid-day! Better weather = better fishing. However, Mick came 3rd with 11lb 8oz. DJ, to everyone's surprisecame 2nd with 13lb 2oz, and a great day for Shaun with a good winner's weight of 27lb 1oz.
Considering the conditions this was an excellent weight - well done Shaun, and well done to everyone else.
Next match will be a Silver only match on Sunday 21st February.

24th January - Nineoaks Silver only match. Again, conditions were poor and fishing was hard but a good turn-out nevertheless. Well done Mick for his winning weight of 19lb 5oz; Carl Worrall second with 13lb 6oz and Johnathan Davies (Pembrokeshire) 3rd with 11lb 10oz.

10th January - Nine Oaks Fishery Open. Hard going all day but a pretty close match at the end of the day. Well done to Carl Worrall on winning with 19lb 3oz; Andrew Kirtley 2nd with 17lb 8oz and Mick Butler on 3rd with 15lb.
Thanks to all who competed.

About Nineoaks:

Nineoaks' has some superb recreational Coarse and Trout Fishing and Self Catering Angler and/or Family Holidays. In a naturally stunning setting, just 2 miles from the beautiful Ceredigion Coast; just 20 miles south of Aberystwyth.
Nine Oaks Angling center lies on the edge of the little hamlet of Oakford (“Derwen Gam” in Welsh) which is roughly 2 miles inland from the Cardigan Bay coast in Ceredigion, West Wales. Ceredigion is one of the least populated counties in Wales, providing 60 miles of spectacular coastline with untouched beaches and miles of uncongested coastal footpaths. The counties main towns are Aberystwyth, Cardigan, Lampeter, and Aberaeron.

Our location is perfect for touring Ceredigion, Carmarthenshire and Pembrokeshire, and most places in Wales too. We have holiday cottages and static caravans and 3 Trout Pools and 3 Coarse Lakes. We provide excellent Trout and top-class general Coarse Fishing. The Trout Lakes contain mainly Rainbow and Blue Trout from 2lb plus small Brownies. The Coarse Lakes hold all varieties of Carp including Commons, Mirrors, Koi and Grass Carp up to 20lb+, Roach, Bream and skimmer Bream, Tench and small chub and small Barbel.

Our holiday accommodation is spotlessly clean, fresh and consists of self-catering holiday cottages; Welsh Tourist Board graded at 4star standard, and quality Static Caravans. All are very close to the lakes and all are suitable for couples, for family holidays (with or without fishing) or specifically Fishing Holidays. The cottages are disabled friendly. About 4 miles away, in a south-westerly direction, is the lovely old fishing village of New Quay (Wales) with its crystal clear waters and beautiful sweeping, sandy bays. Also 4 miles away, northerly, is the busy coastal town of Aberaeron.

With its myriad of colourful Victorian houses and shops. Cardigan is 20 miles south, Aberystwyth is 20 miles north and Carmarthen roughly 35 miles away south easterly inland.

A photograph of the lounge/diner of craigfryn, the small cottage-annexeNine Oaks has two self-catering holiday cottages of 4 star standard, as graded by the Welsh Tourist Board. One is a large semi-detached bungalow and the other a small cottage annexe.

A photograph of the large lounge of Snowdrop, our semi-detached bungalowThey are both absolutely spotlessly clean, sweet smelling, and fully equipped with toaster, microwave, kettle etc. TV with Freeview & in fact everything - all you need to bring are your personal towels, spare tea towels and your food and of course spare clothing, and if you're fishing, your tackle and bait too?

Both are ideal for the discerning angler for a Fishing Holiday, or a holiday with their wife, partner, family or friends; as a holiday base to tour or visit the surrounding area.

We are ideal for the avid family angler, where they can fish in the morning, then have a great time spending the day with the family, and finally having a few more hours fishing in the evening? Just perfect and no black marks too!

Check here for more details of our self-catering Holiday Accommodation.

One of our many excellent Rainbow Trout One of our many quality Rainbow Trout with a minimum size of 2lbs. The 3 Trout Pools contain Rainbows, some Blues and Brown Trout. All Brown Trout are to be returned.
