Trip 79 Carp Fishing – 2019


20191122_104512

Location – Meadow Lake

Hours Fished – 74hrs

With a free weekend and a friend kindly looking after the children after school.  I was on my way to the syndicate straight after the school drop off.  I arrived to find only 2 other anglers on the lake, which is a good start, there was no hiding from the wind this weekend as it was going to be every direction possible, but the pressure was low and only going to rise slowly over the next 48 hrs.  I settled on a swim where I believe the carp would be close by, if not in the swim.

With immediate heavy rain forecast which would last until just after 3pm.  I took the decision to find one spot, bait that area and fished both rods there.  I would then spend the morning and early afternoon looking for signs of carp.

I have baited with a mixture of 12mm and 15mm Catalyst boilies, particle blend mixed in and some leftover pellets from my day trip all nicely soaked in Catalyst Syrup.

I’m using bright pop-ups today in the hope of attracting an inquisitive carp or two to pick up my bait and I may well change them over for the night, will think on that one.

The rain finally died away and I got the marker rod out again.  I quickly located the spot I was looking for (after viewing my Deeper lakebook logs) and soon had a load of bait on the spot.  I moved my right-hand rod over there.  I didn’t change the hook baits, as I was interested to see.  The water was very clear so I was hoping this would give me an edge over the other anglers who had arrived during the day and early evening.  The wind had swung to the East – which is right in my face and something I would have to live with for a few hours, not the best option for me, but I feel the carp are over this side of the lake.

The first take happened just after 1am to the right-hand rod, it was a couple of bleeps, the bobbin pulled up to the top and held there.  There was no option put to pick the rod up instantly and pull into a fish, at first I thought it was a Bream or Tench as there was no fight from the fish at all and was quickly in the NSR.  The photos were even pretty simple, except that it was raining at the time.

That will certainly do for starters and with a fresh hook bait sorted out, the bait was back on the spot.  I could get back in the dry, sort the kit out and update my blog while it was fresh in my mind.

It was a peaceful night after that,  with only a single bleep at around 5ish.  I was up pretty early and spotted a couple of fish roll over the right-hand rod again.

It’s a very murky morning with a lot of fine rain and a N/E wind, oddly there is a warm feel to the wind after the past few days.  The pressure is down to 989mbs, there is certainly a good chance of another take over the next 24 hrs.

At around noontime, I baited up both areas with 4 spombs and changed over to fresh hook baits.  I got the rods back out onto the spots, as I didn’t think there is any need to change anything for tonight, I feel there is a great opportunity for another fish tonight.

The second take of the night happened just after midnight to the left-hand rod again and this one was certainly not being reeled in straight away.  The take was an absolute belter and the fight was the same, the first part was to make sure it didn’t get anywhere near those snaggy tree’s all along to my right.  It was tying its upmost to make ground on me, but I held firm and finally had the fish under the top rod.  I was paranoid about the large boulders that this swim is built on, but after what felt like a lifetime, the carp was on the surface and under my control.  It did have the odd lunge down to the depths again, it was soon on the surface and nicely into the waiting Nsr.  Love that feeling when you know it’s all done.

Perfect, well happy with that.

Another PPS pop up, flossed on, blobbed down and flicked back out.  I then put a brew on and sorted out the bivvy, no point in trying to get my head down yet.

Just after, that I heard a carp crashing over my spot, well that’s a nice boost and fingers crossed for another bite, you just never know.

A very misty morning arrived and it was soon packed uptime; it’s always nice to get home early after a long weekend fishing to spend the whole day with the family.

Its been a very productive weekend, will have to work on getting the right-hand rod to produce some action – certainly not going to complain.  I was in fact, over the moon – considering that my weeks trip was not that long ago and it was a complete failure.  It does put you on the back foot, but you have to believe in yourself, have the confidence to move on and leave that week in the past.

Until next time

Trip 78 Carp Fishing – 2019


20191120_100633

 

Location – School Lake

Hours Fished – 5 hrs

Unfortunately, work was cancelled today, I have the buzz of a new lake to play on and loads of work is booked for next week, there was only one place to be.

20191120_094707

In all honesty, I’d absolutely no intention of fishing the same swim again, but as I was swinging the car around in the car park, you’re looking directly at the opposite bank and two fish appeared out of the water at the same time.  I’m sure you would agree, it would’ve been silly to ignore that and we all know how carp love pads when they are dying back.  I’m sure it’s to do with the heat the pads give off when they are breaking down.

I’ve tried my best in taking photos from different angles, as there are only so many photographs you can take of the same swim.

I’m sticking to pop-ups in varying colours and flavours, trying to pinpoint their favourite before Winter sets in and they will be harder to catch.  I’m hoping the bigger carp will start to turn up as I have found this in the past on other club lakes.  The bigger fish need to maintain their weight and eat more than their smaller brothers and sisters.

I’ve also put more bait out than previously, to see how that affects my catch rate.

Just after 10am (I had just taken a big bite out of my Bovril butty), off goes the left-hand rod; with the first of a few takes today I hope.  After a short fight the carp was in the net.

Happy with that and the sun was coming out, it was looking like a beautiful day.  There was a good wind blowing and my brolly was needed.  The bait was out roughly in the spot where there were a lot of leaves on the water and it was pretty hard to see the difference between the pads and leaves.

It’s just after noon and I keep seeing the odd fish tight into the far margin.  Unfortunately, they were a bit too far into the dead pads for me at the moment.  Once they start to die down a bit more, I will feel a bit more comfortable about putting baits there.

The carp aren’t playing ball today.  Mind you, there’s a pretty cold S/E wind blowing and the sun never made much of an appearance.

Much to my surprise, the right-hand rod was away at just after two pm with probably the smallest of the carp so far.  However, as I’m just in it for some fun at the moment, all are good and I’m sure the bigger fish will turn up.

That’s it for today with just over 30 minutes to go, I would be surprised to get another carp, but you just never know.  Fortunately for me, there has been more carp action, can’t believe it’s home time so soon.

Until next time
