Trip 51 Carp Fishing – 2018


With the school holidays in full swing, I was very lucky to be able to fit another night in this week.  This is all down to my dad coming down for a week to look after the kids when I was out gardening.  The weather was so hot, he stayed for another week!

The big carp hunting is proving very hard on the airfield lake this year (as you may have noticed) but I just have to keep on going.  I will never catch them sitting at home or on another lake. They’re certainly here, I just need to find them – this is proving hard.  It’s not helped by the whole of the west bank is out of bounds and a fair few other areas.  That said, this is why I love the place, wild, open and peaceful, as a fair few syndicate members can’t get on with the place.

With the wind still nicely pushing from the south, I headed off to the daisy field swim.  I soon spotted a few nice fish showing.  Now to get the baits out without disturbing them –  not a simple task on here and only time will tell.  With only 4 spombs of SF hemp, tiger and a small bag with a 15mm Catalyst wafter with an Evo maggot cluster.

I was all set with the Nsr 50 in the water, unhooking mat and water all laid out ready.  It was time for some tea.

At around midnight, the left-hand rod belted off and I was attached to a 10lber, it was an ok start but turned out to be my only fish of the night.

Until next time

Trip 50 Carp Fishing – 2018


With the weather still perfect for a carp or two, I headed back down the lake early Sunday afternoon.  This was despite the heavy wind and rain and a very wet set up.  I also headed back into the same swim I fished on Friday night and baited up as before.

The rain continued until early evening and I was very confident that I would get a fish or two.

As night fell, I got my head down and hoped a take would happen overnight.  All of this did happened but it was an aborted take at around 2am.

And it was no sooner pack up time.

Until next time

Richard

Trip 49 Carp Fishing – 2018


With a break in the weather passing through this weekend, I was very keen to get on the lake.  With a few family things on, there was only one option – two quick overnights over the weekend.  The pressure had dropped a lot, plenty of strong winds due and loads of rain, it just had to get the fish feeding.

After a long look round and there were a few anglers with the same thought as me!  I settled on the middle part of the complex out on a point, however in the past I lost a few carp in the snags to the left.  I would be keeping well away from these, I feel there is no real point in losing carp for the sake of it and the potential of harming them.

I baited a new area to my right, which has produced fish in the past for me.  I flicked some bags on the stop, laid on my bed watching the world go by and the sun going down.

Hoping I had chosen the right spot (which I was sure I had) but it may be my next trip that produces some fish.  This is part of my baiting plan, as I would be back every other night for the next 3 trips out, well that’s the plan and we shall have to see how it works out.

With no carp the first night I was up early to head home for a family day out.

Until next time
