After the setting up from all set ups – to the point of wondering why I was bothering today and then laughing to myself when I realised that it’s trip 13!
I have set up on a day swim which gives you access to the sanctuary area (up to a rope that goes across to stop angler’s who would cast all the way up to the fallen tree and lost every fish they hooked and wounded why).
This is some 70 yards up the channel between two islands.
I have cast a single poloni pop at each corner of the rope with a small Godman Angling mesh bag filled with micro pellets and soaked in Krill and Tuna oil.
The right hand side is the access route in to another bay and the left side, leads into a channel which runs into the main lake. The sanctuary is a maze of small islands and channels, perfect for the Carp to escape all the pressure of angler’s.
With not even a single bleep (which I was surprised at) and it getting close to the children’s collection time. I had a quick lead around in another area I had been keeping a eye on. This is also part of the sanctuary area, it looked like it could hold fish and after 10 minutes, I found a couple of clear spots and put some bait out for tomorrow’s trip.
