How to fish from the Island Point swim

You can make some excellent catches from this swim. A bait boat is very useful here to drop rigs underneath the overhanging trees.

Fishing tactics

The island point right in front of the swim is a popular place for a rig and produces fish regularly.


The island margin to the left of the swim is very productive. Spread bait along the margin to force the carp to move from bait to bait.
