As the weather has been perfect for a couple of days, I was surprised to find only one other angler on the lake. Was this a bad thing or a lucky start? Even though the wind had been pushing down the lake into the bay area, that I had fished before and knowing that there had been someone in this swim since last Monday. I still felt that this was my best option. There were waves on the lake which were pushing down and crashing into the reed’s. I thought, there just has to be fish still there.
And the corner looked just perfect.
Despite the angler pressure, the incredible numbers of Roach and Rudd in here. I felt that the bay rod would have a good amount of Poloni boilies scattered around with my ground bait mix. I spombed out 8 loads and fished a 14mm poloni pop up over the spot.
The right hand rod was cast over to the same margin but along near a gap which leads to the sanctuary area of the lake.
This rod was a single 18mm poloni pop up with a Godman Angling verseacat filled with Bait-tech Hemp oil. This added a tiny bit of attraction to the area because of the possibility that there may be too much bait out there or the fish had been hammered. I thought this would be the best approach. I didn’t feel that I had over done the bait as my mixture is pretty much all ground up.
And is mostly for attraction and a small amount of feed, for the Carp.
It was a pretty grey day and looking very wintry however, I was certainly not dressed like it was winter!
Much to my amazement, other than a couple of beeps that was it. With the sun coming up, it was time to pack up and head home.
Just an amazing time of the morning to be out there.
Till next time
