I am out for a 24 hr session this Saturday night. I have all of the top lake to myself and with the strong winds pushing onto the daisy bank, there’s no other place to be.
The weather today is all over the place, one minute sunshine, the next strong winds and thunder and then back to sunshine.
Which means no looking at the lake and four storm poles and a view of the small bay.
I am fishing the same area as my last trip in the same swim and with both rod’s on the baited area (which is a couple of kilos of Spotted Fin Catalyst boilies mixed-up with pellet and soaked in Catalyst Food Dip).
Much to my surprise, the afternoon and evening pasted with out a fish, despite a couple showing themselves near the baited area. I dropped off to sleep watching the lake and feeling confident that a fish would come my way over night. Sure enough at about 4 am the left-hand rod was off and after a lot to mucking around in the margins, I had a lovely Common in the net.
26lb 1oz common
I was feeling quite confident that a few more fish would come my way and sat watching the lake with a brew. By around 0630 this was not happening. Time to catch up on some sleep and I got back into the bag for a couple of hours. I could hear a few fish crashing again to the right of me and fell asleep expecting to be woken by a take. Unfortunately, this was not the case and by 10 am I needed to start packing up and head home. Very happy with my results as I had not been on the lake for a good week or more.
Until next time
