It’s Tuesday again and that means, fish a few hours in the day, head home, sort the kids out, wait for the wife to get home and then back down the lake for the night.
As luck would have I am back in the same swim as I was during the day. I am not in the same spots, as it would be way too dangerous and not very fish safety conscious. With a couple of hard spots found, two bags were put out. However, after today’s success on the natural pop up both rods where on them.
It’s about 0230 as I am writing this and I have just lost my second fish of the night. I can’t blame the hooks or the rig, just bad luck and a bit of my fault. I am having to play the fish hard to avoid the tree lined margins either side of me. This is despite the swim being some 40/50 ft wide, these fish have the knowledge in their head’s, that if they can make the trees (which hang down nicely into the water), they will be free and I was so close at getting the last fish into the open water, just in front of the swim. It’s just one of those things we a have to live with on this syndicate. I have never known fish like this in all my year’s of fishing. They just make a full blown run straight for the snags, with no quarter given, amazing fighting fish these Carp are in here.
Much to my delight, I finally banked a carp around 4 am.
A nice 22ld 12oz common
Back she goes, that’s taken the edge of losing two fish.
A perfect start to the day. Well it’s time to head home.
Until next time
