Swan Lake Key Details
Swan Lake, Bluebell Lakes
The great thing about Swan is you don’t have to be in a certain swim to catch. If you find a decent clear spot in the weed it’s not too hard to catch.
The biggest thing on there is to use a marker float. It's really important to find a clear spot so take your time to do so.
What do I need to know?
The residents in Swan lake definitely like a bit of bait if you can get on them and in my opinion, from my catch reports, they prefer particles.
Rig-wise, I caught on solid PVA bags but by far and away my most used was the hinged stiff rig.
They also love surface baits when it’s warm and zig rigs in spring.
All my zig fish were caught on black foam about 2ft beneath the surface.
The fish move around and it almost didn’t matter where I fished as long as I found a clear spot.
When you have got a banging south-westerly coming in they will definitely stack up towards the causeway bank, but the rest of the time then tend to be out in the middle or in the shallows.
Don’t go to the Swan Lake without these:
