    I have seen a video where 1 spot shows a swim in open water then swim next to it with tree cover but think that's the only tree cover on the lake

    Lol of course was just seeing who was interested lol

    i have managed to find out from someone who has fished it a few spots where fish have been caught recently and the owner said he would point us in the right direction when we get there
    he said pineapple or fruity boilies work well and to remember peperami (which i hate) he does sell freezer baits incase we want any and pellets . oh and he mentioned at least twice about his steak dinner for 4 quid lol
