Trip 102 Pike Fishing- 2017


With all that rain (yes, no snow down South), I thought the river would be very murky and on the drop, it would be a great opportunity for a pike or two.  It was a lovely winter’s morning.

I headed for one of my favourite areas, as it gives me the option of a lot of spots and is not too far to walk.  I only have a limited amount of time and with no joy in the first swim I was on the move.

The second spot is in the Weir pool, which I have yet to catch a pike from.  Today could be my opportunity.  I certainly need to find a swim with some sunshine, it’s pretty nippy out here.

With no joy, I was on the move again.  The weather has been so mild until very recently the river has been very low and with no real floods, there is still a lot of vegetation about.  This is clogging up my normal spots, which is a shame.  So far, not even a sign of a pike.

I moved again and may be this time, there is a bit of sunshine about.

It was nice to get back on the bank after recent events but of a shame there was no pike today.  It was good to be out in the fresh air again.

Until next time

Trip 101 Carp Fishing- 2017


After a very enjoyable few hours the other day and still feeling not 100%, I headed off down the lake. I’m not too sure what I will do or how long I will fish for.  I took my normal route around the lake and stopped at a few swims.  I really only fancied the one swim on the bank which everyone opposite was casting across to.  Don’t get me wrong they were nowhere near where I would be putting my baits.  I just didn’t fancy putting more pressure on that side of the lake and the other possibility would be facing another angler across the lake (some distance away).  I just like my own area, undisturbed with a pleasant view (rather than waving at a fellow angler across the lake!).  I looked in another areas but then thought, I will be back in the week when it will be peaceful and less pressured.  As I drove down the causeway between the smaller lake which contains fish up to just under 30 lbs, it was completely empty and always is.  I thought why not fish there and have a lake to myself?  I may even catch a few, why would you not.

I picked the swim that gave me the best view and access to cast anywhere.  I filled up a couple of bags with Betafin Pellets, broken Catalyst boilies and a mix of Minamino & Betafin liquids.  I flicked them out to a couple of likely spots, as I was planning on baiting up after dark, these fish really show themselves then.

I had a few bleeps through the afternoon on the left had rod and it finally rattled off to a small, but very pretty common.

With that rod recast, I settled down to formulate a plan for my spots tonight but by 7 pm there had not been a single sign of a single fish, so I stuck some bait out over the area I was fishing and that would have to do.

There was a stunning sunset tonight over the lake.  It was very nice as it had been mostly a very grey day, until then.

Well, my trip got turned upside down around 1 am.  I had a call from my dad, my mum was in hospital.  The gear packed away sharpish and I was off to Wales for the next few day’s.

Until next time.
