I am taking a friend on the Broads for his first ever Boating Holiday ... Now I know most Anglers don't like boaters but we are very keen anglers and just need a little help in where to fish on Barton Broad. Having a hire cruiser for the week we can access most of the Broad ....but we just need a general 'nod' as to one or two good Bream spots. There's nothing worse than taking a friend on his first outing and blanking is there? Is the Boat channel heading from the river Ant towards Neatishead worth a try as I gather from reading other blogs it was but most blogs are years old. Any info would be gratefully received....

That's a very sweeping statement. A lot of boaters are also anglers, and a lot of anglers fish from boats. As a non-angling boater, I have never met with any antipathy towards me from an angler, nor have I ever encountered an angler who was unwilling to move to allow me to moor.
Let's not seek to create division where there is none, please.

Thanks for that info ... I know it's a big ask but is the Broad just to the right as you enter from the Ant any good as some years ago I noticed some old dilapidated wooden fishing pegs along the weeds before the island. And would the newly dredged boat lane be good at night when it's quiet?
