After see plenty of fish on Friday morning out to my right, as I was packing up, After having a nice 20 lb Carp, I felt that the rest of my bait just had to be put along that area (between me and two swims down). When I arrived back down the lake around 0930 Saturday morning, I was amazed to see so many fish crashing about over the area I had baited. With that, my friend and I dropped into the same swims as last weekend.
And I lightly topped up the swim with some Catalyst boilies and a groundbait mix.
Then the rain came.
It was not long before my friend had one on the bank.
He had gone for a different tactic to me as he was using 22m Catalyst bottom bait and a stringer with 5 baits on it. We settled down to a very pleasant evening, once the heavy rain showers had passed. The night was very peaceful for me with not a bleep, until about 0630 when the right hand rod screamed off (as they always do in here), with absolutely no warning. It was a nice Common around the 11 lb mark who had woken me up. I recast, got the kettle on for a brew and watched as the day unfolded.
What a stunning start to the day
The deer were on the far bank again and this time in the sunshine.
I gave it until around lunchtime, had a quick look around and then headed home.
Until next time
