I am out just for a couple of hours today, in a very nice looking swim that I have never fished before.
There are two islands with a channel running between them. Unfortunately, it’s roped off because of bad angling in the past.
I cast one rod on the right side of the gap and the other along the island to the left of me.
There is a bit of weed in the small bay area, so I am using Poloni 14mm pop ups and a snowman set up on the other rod.
I have made up some Godman Pva Versacast with Bait-tech Hemp oil and Krill & Tuna Oil.
And these, I put over the hook.
For instance added attraction, I have also put a couple of pouches of poloni boilies over the top. This swim is about attracting the fish out of their safe haven.
Looking though the gap.
My first fish came about 45 minutes after I arrived to the left hand rod by the ropes, it was a scrappy bar of gold, in the shape of a 14lb Common.
I recast the rod with another Versacast, filled with Bait-tech krill & Tuna oil and sat back and soaked up the last of the summer sunshine.
I was starting to think that I was only going to catch one fish and couldn’t believe that the other rod had not ripped off. Within a few minutes of thinking this, it finally did and I was attended to a very unhappy 18 lb 4 Oz common.
I didn’t bother putting the rod out as it was just past 1400 and I should have been in the car and up the road, oops.
Till next time
