That's unlucky Dan but also a result if ya know where I'm coming from, some guys haven't even had a take in a couple of years of wetting a line in there.

Whereabouts was you fishing?

By stump peg as you call it I was over the moon when it roared off then gutted when I got snagged up!

Had a feeling you was gonna say that side of the lake, I don't know for sure exactly how severe the snags are down that side of the lake but apparently it's an old Hawthorne edge that was left in when pit was filled with water. I have been told that you used to be able to see the tops of the sprags when the water level was down but the divers went in and cut most of them off but didn't lop them right near the lake bed but instead left some height on the hedge under water! Don't know why. I've been told it's clear as I may of mentioned before out from the stump peg, but how big the clear area is I don't know.

I have been told that the hedge line runs about 30 - 40 yards parallel to the bank, to be honest I've not fished much on that side of the lake due to the reported snags and all the fish list to landed ratio. Although I am now geared up properly for snag fishing and locking the clutches up, but I'm not that fast outta bed so would move my rods during the night.

Fishing the open water side of the snags from the point swim, Trent side can be productive as you can use the angle of the rods to work for you in teasing the fish away but I'm sure some losses would still occur.

Most of my fishing has been done from North bank, east bank and the point. If you wanna see what's in there then make sure you are around during spawn :-)
