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

There’s A New Day Dawning


20170506_191655

As you all know, I have been fishing for a long time and I am still amazed at the number of anglers who just pick a brand and stick with it forever.  This is regardless if there is a down turn in quality of the products.  I call them Brand sheep.  I agree, there are a lot of similar products out there, however, a little change to products, can make all the difference between a fish on the bank or not.  I have been a fan of the odd product from different brands over the year, but never the full range, as part of the brand sometimes let the side down.

Now the tide is turning and there is a new company in town – Spotted Fin.  I came on board early on and am part of the team.  I am able to test products new to the market.  There is no doubt in my mind, that this company will be taking over the fishing world. You can feel the passion for the best products (with no compromise on quantity), past on to all the team.  They believe in quality always, the angler always comes first and foremost, this is in all the products that I have seen and tested so far.  If i am honest, it’s very hard to find a fault or suggest any improvement, there has been a great deal of effort and thought, gone into every single product with no compromise.

Finskin

Image may contain: one or more people and text

Cannot fault any of these (as you can see from reading my blogs), most of my fishing is close quarters snag fishing and the hook link material holds up amazingly well.

Hooks

Carrying on from above, I use Finskin in conjunction with these beauties and I can’t fault any of these, the hook hold is amazing

Boilies

Image may contain: food

What can I say?  Other than, after I struggled with my previous boilies and then switching over, my catch rate and confidence has risen up and not faltered.

Pellets

Image may contain: outdoor

In conjunction with their boilies, the pellets certainly pull the carp onto the bait and have accounted for some very nice fish – for myself and others.

Hookbaits

Image may contain: foodThey smell and last perfectly, you couldn’t ask for more.  They are not rock hard (like a lot of pop ups) and are not to soft, they are right in the middle and just spot on.

Stix Mix

Krill, Salmon, Tuna – Are one of my stix mix ingredients and without a doubt these are the best on the market.

Ground Bait & Spod Mix, Particle Range

Image may contain: text

The range of products is just perfect and whether you are a match or carp angler, these will not fail to catch.

Liquids

Tuna, Salmon, Krill, Minamino, Betalin

No automatic alt text available.

You just can’t go wrong with any of these liquids, there are so many more products coming on line every week – I just can’t keep up.  There is just no compromise on quality and some of these products have been tested over a two year period.

Go on join the revolution.

Trip 48 Carp Fishing- 2018


I arrived back down the Airfield lake just before 7pm after a fun drive through the New Forest.  I was trying to avoid the traffic jam but failed badly.  After my last trtrip, I had put a load of bait in before I left, in the hope of fitting in a day session.  This I also failed at this week, you can never win them all.

20180720_202125

I did have a good look round first but I just felt the need to give this swim one more go.  There were clearly fish about last time, so with that in mind, I set about finding a nice margin spot, with the Deeper.

screenshot_20180720-210742_deeper

The best area was to the right of me, which left me a lovely spot not to far out from the other rod.

As night fell I got my head down and fell asleep only to be woken by a belting run on my left-hand rod.  After the normal long battle on here, never really knowing if you have a 10lber or a low twenty.  It was in the net and quickly transferred to the hooking mat, upon lifting the net you discover what you have and for me, it was a pleasant change, a nice common at 18lb 4oz.  Not the big lump we all search for on here, as we all love the unknown and wildness of this lake but never the less a fish is a fish and I was very happy.

With the rod recast it was time for some more kip as it was not even 2am yet.

My next take did not arrive until well after first light.  It was just gone 7am when the same rod rattled off again, with another common, but not as big as the last.

15lb 14oz

It’s funny that I haven’t had a take on the margin after getting all those liners the other night.  I was convinced I would get a take off that spot but one of the spots I found the last trip with the Deeper.  It has done me well and next time I may well switch them around again.

And it was no sooner home time.

Until next time
