With the big change in the weather and a week of frosts here and snow up North. I spent the first hour of my limited time here (when the kids are at school) looking around the lake and getting a feel for things. I ended up setting on a nice swim at the back of the wind, the sun was directly shining on the margins. This is in my belief, that with the extra day light hours and sunny days, together with the the frosts and the cold winds, the lake temperature should be at a steady level and the fish will continue to feed more.
Looks lovely and warm but there is a real chill in that wind.
I just baited both rod’s with pva bags filled with catalyst/Betafin Pellets soaked in liquids (as before) and added some catalyst Food Dip for an extra boost. One rod was fished on a pop and the other on a wafter with paste wrapped around it – no other free offerings were put out.
At about 1215 my left hand was off and I was into to a fish, unfortunately it made is way to a small island which had a nice overhanging bush on it. The fish managed to shed the hook, the safety clips did their job and drop the lead, but probably too late. I have just over an hour and a bit to make amends.
It was not to be
Until next time
