For the first couple of days there were plenty of fish around but I've blanked since! Any idea why? Would all the fish of various species moved, or what? I'm fishing only from the houseboat so haven't tried anywhere else.

The OP on the No Fish thread has asked the same question about fishing from Ranworth Island this morning.

Could it be that both places are pretty shallow water and the recent very cold nights may have stopped the fish feeding?

Quite possible. It's around three feet deep where I am. I got a few perch on worms yesterday but not much sign of other fish. I've seen quite a few anglers catching fish in various other places we've visited (Horning, Potter Heigham, Ludham, etc)

The other thing that absolutely seems to kill fishing on the broads is a wind with any hint of Easterly with it. Don't know why, perhaps it ruffles up the fish's feathers up the wrong way, so to speak. Doesn't seem to have quite such a marked effect in the rivers though.

When the wind is in the East - then the feeshes bite the least.

As a pretty much non-angler I recall that from the dim & distant past.

I've had fun this season spinning for perch with a little Mepps spinner.  Last time I tried, I caught a pike of around 5lb by accident. Surprised I managed to land it because I was using light line with no wire trace.
