So,

Over the last 12 months I have noticed more and more matches being won pinging pellets, even now its winning matches! I would normally be fishing a few micros with maggots over the top, maybe a little corn etc... but this just doesn't seem to be working on the venues near me.

We are still seeing matches won with people fishing down the edges in 14 inches of water, now I personally dont remember seeing matches being won as consistently as they are currently at this time of year, fishing the edge!!

Anyone else seeing this trend?

Exact opposite for me down here Pete, last year I was doing well on pellets in the winter, this year it seems to be 95% mags. Stevie G says the same in his most recent blog, it just seems to be mags or bust

Done it all year with Poolfodder on various waters works a treat, but only pleasure fishing

Not much changed in the North West, same methods that always catch in winter and same pegs. One thing that is constant is the inconsistency from day to day and week to week!!!
