With the weather so perfect today and it still being so mild. I had no option but to go out carp fishing on my Sunday night out. I can’t believe it’s still so mild and Christmas is just around the corner.
After a walk round and a chat with the other angler’s on the lake. I was told that there had been no fish out all weekend and the going was still very hard. As I had not been down since my last Sunday night session, I was not completely sure where to go – back in the same swim as before (as no one had fished in there for the last two nights) or there was the point swim which was free, it had produced fish for me before. It would be a rough night with the wind picking up again but it did feel good over there. However, I had some thinking to do, there had been a lot of bait put in other areas of the lake.
For the first few hours, I was going to single hook bait it until I had come up with a plan for the night.
Single hook bait
Bait up or not
Some thinking was needed.
The decision had been made, I was going to stick with the single hook baits tonight, just out of interest, as there will be a good amount of bait leftover from the weekend angler’s and I plan to keep my ears open all night and then bait up before I leave, as I will be back Tuesday for the day and hopefully if I fish here I will be in the right area.
I was awake quite a bit of the night, listening to a few fish topping in my area. Which is around 2 acres and the fish where very active. This kept me awake with anticipation, despite all these crashes, the trip out was a complete blank. However, the information about where the fish had been active, so not a complete waste of time. Still not very happy about another blank, at least I learnt something, so I should not complain.
Till next time
