I am not sure if it’s ever going to stop raining in August, its certainly been a bit wet
Before I headed home last time, I had a good look around the lake and did a spot of markering to test out the Fox Warrior + S&M rod for its marker float capability. I must say I was very impressed and the stiffness will certainly pick out the gravel from the silt, which on this lake is a crucial part of it.
On my wondering, I spotted a few fish in this area and I flicked the rod out on these areas. There were some very nice silty gullies. With a quick walk back to the car to get some catalyst boilies, to fire out into the general area before I left for home.
It was nice to get a sunset of sorts. The swim was free as I drove down the track and unbelievably a nice fish rolled on one of the spots I fancied. Look no further I thought. The marker flicked out, bang on the spot. I clipped up and flicked a bag out on to the spots with four small pouch-fulls of boilies over the top. Both rod’s were on 22m Catalyst bottom bait soaked in the Finamino Bait soak (just to give an edge on the other baits in the area), camp was already up as it was still raining, mind you a lot less than it had been.
That will do, first take on the right hand rod and before 2300 another bag was tied up and put back on the spot.
Unfortunately, that was the only fish of the night.
Until next time.
