Feeder Fishing Always scores well at Boddington Reservoir
All methods have there place on this venue, during the cold winter months the best approach is straight lead or a pellet feeder at long range 50-70yds, with dead maggot, corn or meat always worth a try. In the warmer months The method feeder, Pellet Waggler, Bagging waggler and pole all work well. Top baits are Pellet, Paste, Boilies,Catmeat, Meat and corn all produce good weights. Always be prepared to experiment with hook baits, these carp have seen it all before and a change in bait can turn an average day sport into a catch of a lifetime.
In the winter of 2006/2007 Major work was completed, improving the venues walk ways and pegs, there are now over 80 concrete step pegs with 1m square platforms every 3 to 4 steps making for a much more comfortable fish. With an extra 40 parking places on the West Car Park this venues facilities are greatly improved and the venues future is looking very bright.
