On my way home from my Pike trip I took a drive around the lake, to see if there were any signs of Carp. There was no sign, so I chucked some bait in some likely spots and headed home, to sort the kid’s out. I head back down here around 7pm.
When I arrived back, there was still someone angling on the lake – mostly due to the way it was fishing (which was pretty bad). I knew that it had to switch on and I just need to be here.
I headed to one of the swims that I fancied and made up a couple of small bags of chopped Catalyst boilies, with a natural pop up and then dipped them into the food dip. This gave them a bit of a turbo boost and then flicked them out onto the spots in had baited this afternoon. At around 1030 the righthand rod slowly bursts into life and after a good fight, a nice common was laying on the mat.
Not bad going and I was very happy with a bite so early on into the night. Once I had tidied up and got the fish back, I lay on my bed and there where the odd fish topping in the distance. Maybe they had woken up today. Time to get my head down as have an dark o’clock alarm call!
That fish turned out to be the only one but I was very happy with my results.
Until next time
