Firstly, thanks to Mrs H for letting me do two night’s. Which will be a nice chill down, before the school summer holidays start.
I have set up on a small point which has two swims, they are pointing in opposite directions. As this is sensible syndicate, no one will set up behind me unless I agree (no chance).
Rod one has been cast into a small bay along the right hand margin. I have caterpulted some ten pouches of Bait-Tech Poloni boilies mixed sizes into this area and I am fishing a pop up over the top.
Rod two – I have found some nice smooth silty areas, toward the middle of the bay and as I don’t wish to intrude on anyone else’s water (just in case a day angler settlers in tomorrow morning in the opposite end to me). I have found the edge of this area, where it meets the gravel and I am fishing about 10ft into this area. With large quantities of Bait-Tech mixed seeds which were mix together with Poloni/Envy method mix and a good load of micro pellets + some poloni boilies. My plan is to feed the bream and pick up the feeding carp on 18mm Poloni pop ups, I may have to change to a snowman rig, if I get really fed up with the bream, lets hope not.
That does look good and I have spomb put this out with 1/2 kilo of Poloni boilies.
There was a good bit of rain in the night, but less than I was expecting. I was treated to a spectacular fireworks display at around 11pm.
The geese on the lake where not to happy.
I was hoping that this would wake the carp up, as this happens on other lakes, unfortunately, only the bream.
By mid morning the sky was clear and the sun was blazing down. However, the wind was still pushing on to my right hand margin, the carp will still be moving up and down there, it’s just a matter of time, I hope.
With the last ray’s of light and a bit of fish spotting, it was time to get my head down as I need to be packed up and home by 7 am.
As with the night before, the bream and tench where very active. Finally at around 3 am, I was into a nice meadow lake carp, which tipped the scales at 22 lb on the nose.
With a few pics done, I slipped the fish back. I am not one for sacking fish up for hour’s. I just like to get them back safe & sound to their home. It’s about catching them and not photographing them in the perfect light. With the introduction of modern day sacks & slings, fish safety has moved on. I am just a bit old school.
And that was that for this trip, was feeling quiet lucky after this fish.
Till Next Time
