It’s been a week or three, since I have done a night and it’s certainly nice to be back out. As luck would have it, the weather was pretty nice as well.
All tucked away in one of my favourite swims, as the weather was fair, there where a few people about. After a good hour of looking, I finally settled on this swim. It gave me access to an area where I believe the fish have been hold up in.
The downside was in needed my waders. These were safely at home but I luckily had my wellies. If I caught a big fish, there would be no alternative other than getting wet, as the edge of the swim was just on front of my rod’s tips.
I flicked both rod’s out to the left of the small island, both had catalyst Natural Pop Ups on and a small Stix Mix bag. Two spomb’s over each spot with a mixture of Catalyst Pellets soaked in Salmon Liquid.
The afternoon was beautiful and as I settled in for the night. I was feeling very hopefully. With a lots of line bites and one on the bank, it was clear the Bream had moved in and I was hoping the Carp would follow. At around 0415, the left had rod was away and after a long battle and trashing the other rod, a very nice Common was safely in the net.
Well happy with this fish
All 29 pounds & 11 ounces. I was feeling good at this point, even after getting a boot full of water when netting the fish.
With a complete change in the wind direction and a frosty morning. There was no more action and I headed home by 11am.
Until next time
