I am out for another mid week over nighter. When I arrived there was only one other angler on the lake – not bad for a 56 acres.
I had a good look around as usual and even flicked about with the marker rod in a couple of swims. I just couldn’t get a feel for anywhere. Then I spotted a couple of fish showing along this bank. So I quickly jumped in the car and went around the other side. Sure enough, there were a couple more topping along here – decision made. With the spots already in my note book, I flicked a lead out to double check and yes they still felt good. With that, I made up two bags and put them on to the spots, with five spombs over each. There was also a mix of catalyst Pellets and boilies over the top for good measure.
Time for a brew, watch the sun go down and a few more Carp showed themselves.
I drifted off to sleep, only to be woken at midnight, my car alarm was going off for absolutely no reason that I could find. Perhaps a deer walked by. Could I get back to sleep after that? Nope, it took me hours. Another alarm went off, this time it was the left hand rod, this was on the bottom of the margin shelf. The fish gave me the right run around and tried to get in the overhanging bushes to my left, more times than I care to remember. Finally it slipped over the cord.
20lb on the dot
That will do nicely. I put a fresh bait on and another small mesh bag. I put the rod back on the spot as I had a couple of hours left to go – you just never know. Well other than the swan taking both rods out, that was it for the night.
Spotted these over the far side of the lake this morning.
Until next time
