After my night out and what can only be described as bream fishing. I have done my school run bit and have headed straight back down the lake (after the Mrs came home) to have a play along the snag bank.
My first port of call was my favourite spot along this bank. I scattered a good couple of handfuls of ground up poloni boilies.
I put them over my favourite spots, sat back and waited. The right hand rod was away within half an hour of being there and this fish was very powerful. It stayed well and truly under the tree for what felt like a life time. I literally had to hang on with both hands and keep my tip well under the water. Even when I finally managed to get the fish out for a few seconds, it powered of again straight back under. I knew right from the start I was attached to a lump, I just needed to hang on and get that fish out into the small bit of open water in front of me and into that net.
When it finally slipped over the cord, I let out a sigh of releave as close quarter playing a big fish, in a tiny snaggy swim, is a real adrenaline rush.
34 lb 2 oz of power was finally mine.
After that and with still another 2 hours left, I moved on to another swim that I had not fished before but really fancied.
Unfortunately, the swim move didn’t result in another fish. But I don’t care, I am so over the moon with my result today, I am going home with a great big smile on my face.
Until next time.
