Heron is a picturesque lake and is lined with marginal snags and overhanging trees.
Consequently, the carp can be pretty predictable in terms of their location.
Target the margins, placing rigs close to the trees and you stand a very good chance of catching.
No need for distance casting, just underarm flicks are all that is required.

What you need to know?
A baiting spoon or pole can be a real edge here too. Shipping your rig out quietly with a baiting pole can keep things stealthy a deadly accurate. You can simply place your rig inside the spoon, cover it in bait then ship it out to the snags and drop quietly.
Try micro pellets and boilie chops over the top of your chosen hook baits. Bright hook baits can work well, especially in winter, yellow Northern Specials and Pineapples in particular.
