With the weather looking perfect over this week & into the weekend, Pike fishing was still off the menu. The temperature had reasonably up to nearly 15 degree – amazing as last week it was -7!
As it is now the lead up to Christmas and the weather being so nice, the lake was very busy with 8 people on. I realise that this is not that many, however more then the normal and I am sure the fish would have noticed. With that in mind, I headed down the other end of the lake and at the back of the wind. Even with the warm wind this area would be the warmer part of the lake and hopefully still have some fish around from my earlier night trip (when I was lucky enough to land two fish).
Got myself an early Christmas present. In the shape of this kettle, hand carved by Neane Valley Carving.
There was quite a lot of rain in the late afternoon and evening. I was hoping this wouldn’t put the carp off. I sat up until gone midnight in the hope of seeing any signs of fish, as the wind and rain had gone. The lake was like a millpond.
The night was very still, other then the party of mice who had that decided that my brolly was a good place to investigate! I even had on run past my face whilst I was in my bag. Boy, that gave me a shock. The dam things where investigating everything. I learnt many year’s ago, to zip up all my bags at night, as you never know what goes in and out of them at night. Rodents will release themselves when ever they feel the need.
Glad I got up in time to see the sunrise. Shame it’s now turned into one of those grey Winter days.
Despite my best efforts, I blanked.
Until next time
