Trip No 17 Carp Fishing (2015)


This is my first trip of 2015 on the inland sea.  It is looking stunning as always, it’s still daunting though – I am fishing a tiny part of a vast water.

I have found two very nice humps to fish, which have some very smooth silty areas at the bottom of the drop off.  One rod is at the bottom and the other is on the top of a bar on very clear gravel.

I have baited up with solar baits, MLX boilies and Bait-Tech ground bait mixed with chopped boilies all spomb out. With a mix Bait-Tech pellets and Polony oil.

Time to sit back and enjoy the view.

Unfortunately, it was a very quiet and cold night, the first frost for a long time.

Till next time

About richardhandel

I would like to give a brief snap shot of my life and introduce myself; My name is Richard Handel and was born in 1965 in Suffolk. I have worked as a UK Operation & Intermodule Manager for a shipping company. I live in Hampshire now and am married with 2 young children, both girls so I am a bit outnumbered even the cat is a girl! I have been fishing since I was about 7 years old. I started on small local rivers in Suffolk, then moved onto gravel pits and then carp fishing. My personal best is a 39.08 mirror, over recent years I have started river fishing again, on the Hampshire Avon, this is a nice break from the carp lakes. My life has turned a big corner this year, the company I was working for relocated their Operation centre to Estonia. I was offered a job at the head office in London. This would have meant a 5 day commute and working in Stratford. As a family, we did not fancy this, as I would hardly spend any time with the children (and the Mrs). So after 22.5 years, I was given a nice redundancy package and with my wife is working full time. I became the house husband. This has meant a complete turn around in my fishing, as I can pick and choose when I go. I have found a splendid new syndicate to fish this year, which includes 5 lakes and some 8 miles of river with only 150 members. It's an amazing change to the way I am able to fish. I am now trying to start my own tackle business and make a bit of a name for myself in the world of fishing, as I have retired from real work. Richard
