I am out for another Sunday night session, this will be my only trip of the week. As I have the dentist & Nativities to go to – I am a bit stuck for time.
I have picked a bay area, that is a bit sheltered from the strong and fresh S/W wind as I don’t feel confident that the carp will be on the full front of the wind. This is the same swim I fished last session and spotted a fish, when I left on Friday afternoon, there where a few people fishing the main part of the lake. I arrived a bit earlier then normal, hoping for a chat with them but the complex was empty. Good or bad sign? I will never know. Anyway, with all that bait going in, in that area and being by far the coldest area of the lake, I felt this had to be my best option.
The right hand rod was cast nicely up against some overhanging trees, I was able to walk round and bait up easily over the top with chopped poloni boilies with a couple of groundbait balls.
The other rod was flicked out with a string on, for the first 3 hour’s as I wanted to watch the water for any fishy signs. By 1530, it was time to get the marker rod out and do some feature searching and I found a night bar that come up a foot. It was in between two nice silt bed’s and this was the area I finally settled for. There was also a nice shelf down to the 11ft margin, this I will save for later on in the Winter. I spombed out five balls of groundbait and poloni boilies, which were all chopped up. I sat back, got the tea on and settled into those long Winter nights.
The night passed with a couple of bream and two carp crashing nearby and a very hopefull me thing it’s going to go off soon. But by 0530, I was starting to wonder if it would, it had been a warm night and the wind was dying down a lot.
Unfortunately, reel in time came to fast and with no carp on the bank, I was off home and not out until next Sunday.
Till next time
