Use a bait you are confident in and fish to a clear area.
Square Pond is by no means an easy venue, the stock is fairly low, but the rewards are really there for those anglers willing to put the time in.
At 6.5 acres, it’s not a huge place, so you can walk a few laps and find the fish before choosing where to fish.
Personally, I always like to find a nice clean area big enough to present 3 rods on it, then apply bait with a spomb.
This mix could be anything, from just boilies to mixing in some corn, tigers or smaller particles, but the latter can bring the bream in.
The fish are known to hide away in the vast numbers of lily pads that grow in the lake so during the summer months I would head up into the “social swims” or the “Pylon” swims as they give you great access to where the fish are held up during these months.
Presenting a bait as close as you can to the lillies will stand you in good stead.
Zigs are a very underused method on the lake, not many people tend to use them, but I’m sure if used correctly then the results would soon come.
