With the conditions just perfect for carp fishing, I just had to get out for a quick over nighter. I headed back to the area I had been fishing the previous time, but there was another angler giving it a go there. So I headed over to the other point swim to approach the fish from a different angle. I had thought on the way down here that it just may be a better option.
I had made one change to my approach this time, instead of both rod’s on pop ups. I had switched over to a 15 mm Catalyst Wafters, as last year the fished moved off pop ups onto bottom type baits as the season progressed.
With the sun setting, I got under my bed chair cover and laid there just watching last light arrive and drifted off to sleep. It turned out to be quite a long sleep, as the fish where clearly not playing the game. Not a single bleep in the night, I was very shocked and a bit dumbfounded as to what went wrong. The fish must have moved out of this area since my last trip. But where to? is the big question. An early reel in and a look round the lake before heading home was clearly in order.
It looked the perfect spot and the conditions where looking good.
Until next time
