We have had some very cold nights and days as well, lakes froze over but where ice free spaces are there are fish to be caught, best baits are maggot, sweetcorn, pellet. Graham Skirrey who is primarily a silver angler caught 99lb of carp on peg 24 on Wed by casting through the gap between the islands and used double sweet corn.
