After my very uneventful 4 hrs early on today and no signs of fish, the only option was the far end of the lake. I was unable to see these area from my swim today.
The traps were set on the normal spots for this swim. My plan was to stay up late and listen out for any signs of fish in an attempt to pin point their location. I would be back again for a day trip on Thursday.
I sat listening and heard a couple of fish in the distance, but I am not 100% sure where they were.
At about 2330, the right hand rod was off and as I pulled into the fish, its behaviour was like a bream. With lots of head shaking, clearly not a happy carp and once safely in the net, I was quite happy, even though it was a small carp (around the 14lb mark), I still took a photograph.
Worth a photo.
I sat up until around 0100 and heard a couple more fish and thought that I had better move my other rod into that area of the lake. I quickly needed to make up a new bag with chopped Catalyst boilies, soaked in the Food Dip, into a small PVA bag. I then added some food dip (to turbo charge it) and after that I thought I had better get my head down for a couple of hours (before home time). It was all too soon when the alarm clock sounded and it was time to pack up. But even before I started to pack up, the same rod as before was off and into another carp.
Which certainly made my night, after these hard conditions we have been having
Until next time
