When I arrived for this week’s Sunday night session, I was surprised it found that I was a bit stuck to find a swim. As there where at least 8 people fishing, in most of the swims I knew. I then thought, ah, it’s the last couple of weeks before Christmas, the weather is still so mild and perhaps this is why the lake was still drawing people out fishing.
After nearly two hours of walking and chatting, I finally settled for this bay. I had fished this area a couple of weeks beforehand and had heard a fish in the night. This was all I really had to go on as my weekday session had not produced any fish or spotted any.
The left-hand rod was cast over to the margin bushes and a couple of spombs of poloni boilies with a 14mm pop up on, over the top.
This rod may move if I hear any good signs of fish in the night.
The righthand rod was in open water just off a small gravel bar and I baited this spot quite heavy for the time of year. I used my groundbait mix and chopped up Bait-tech Poloni Boilies.
With the last few rays of sunlight going, I sat on my bucket and cooked up some chilli and rice and watched the lake.
I no interruptions in the night for bream or carp and that I didn’t need to pack up until 0830 this Monday. I was still feeling very hopefully that first light may buy me a bite, when I opened my eyes at 7 am.
With a brew in my hand, I sat and watched the lake for the last hour.
Despite the very mild weather, it was another blank to my name.
Till next time
