Chew Advice

Post by applehead » Wed Sep 11 2019 16:12

I have a day on chew early November, I have never set eyes on the place so could do with some advice.
What I will need to take for the boat?
Do I need my own anchor, can I take my electric motor ect.. any advice to make the day run efficiently will be appreciated.

Cheers

Kev

You might find the following of some use to you.

At the end there is the number for the lodge, give them a bell and they can bring you up to speed.

Have a good day.

Anchors are provided, but a decent mud weight will be beneficial.
Lifejackets are provided, after these essentials it's down to you, rod holders fish finder etc.

As Jim says a mud weight for the stern will be essential if you are static deadbaiting.
If no one can give you any current info at the time a good starting point is fishing in water in the 10 - 12 foot range.Off wick green,Stratford,Herons Green Bay and villice were always fairly reliable at that time of year.Unfortunately it does'nt seem to be what it once was but there is always a chance of a beast.
Enjoy your day.

Stay at least 100 yards away from other boats. Not 50 yards or 50 feet. If you see another boat anchored up on its own don't go anywhere near it. Stay well away from bank anglers. There's loads of room - 1300 acres of it.

Also make sure you've got the Samaritans' phone number on your mobile, because if you've paid £160 for a ticket you'll need it when you don't get a run.

Best of luck!

Or do like one chew regular- find out boat is catching well, anchor up very near it. Shout across to other boat asking if the other angler can move his float over a bit!
( they did know each other though)
