This weekend trip is a social one, with a couple of good friends from around the Southampton area. We are fishing the Ressy, for the first time in over six months for me and as luck would have it I was also the first one to arrive. This is due to the fact that once I had dropped the kid’s off at school, I was free to go fishing because the wife had got a half day to use up! Great news for me – thanks Mrs H.
I arrived around 10 am and after a good look around, I settled on this area. As there where still a good few dead pads poking out and a lot of fishy movement.
My plan was to stick a couple of kilos of poloni boilies out over the dead pads and fish small pva bags with pellet and a 14mm pop up. Leave it alone until reel in time or I get a fish and with in 30 minutes, I had one of the new stock fish at around the 10 lb mark.
This fish will be quite stunning in a few years – I think.
The weather was looking perfect for another fish.
The night only action was sleep and plenty of it and much to our surprise, the morning was the same. We were quite shocked with the lack of activity, as the weather was so mild. Just have to see what the second night brings. I did spot a bubbler around noon time and flicked a small bag out.
Unfortunately the second night produced no fish action, I was starting to feel very lucky to have banked a fish within the first hour (small as it was). It was going to be my last carp of 2015 probably. The kid’s are on a two week holiday and all the social stuff connected to Christmas and New Year. This could well be the last trip of the year.
Until next time
