It’s finally happened. The first set up in the dark, only another 4 month’s to go. Effort=reward as they say. Unfortunately, the swim choice was very limited tonight. I can only blame the strong South Westerly warm wind blowing up over the past few days.
There was a pretty good sunset tonight as I was driving across the forest.
The swim I have picked was one that I fished a couple of times last year. I had noted down the sky line markers and the number of turns needed to hit the spot. With a couple of spombs of Catalyst boilies and pellets over the top. I was all done.
At 2230, the left hand rod tightened up and pull around and I was into my first carp of the night.
That’s ok for a start and as it turned out, the only fish of the night. This was alright by me, as it had given me the confidence to know it’s possible to catch on a night session, setting up in the dark. Also the knowledge that I had gained over the past Winter (s) was hopefully starting pay off.
Until next time
