I am back in the same swim as before. As you know, I am convinced that there are bigger fish to be had in this area than I have had. I will be away for a couple of weeks with the family soon, so I have come to the conclusion that I will stick with it. When I get back, have a rethink of my plan if it doesn’t come together. I just need to get passed the smaller fish.
It certainly looks the part, if that’s possible of a swim. Going with the same tactics as my previous trips on this swim and we shall see if I can avoid the smaller carp this time around. I am using 22 mm Catalyst bottom bait again.
The first take came around midnight and was followed by another about 2 am. Both fish were mid double again and as it was raining. I certainly was not mucking about with the camera. Not sure when the next take was but it was dark and dry, so managed a quick snap for the blog.
There were plenty of fish crashing about still but generally they were all over this area. With the wind pushing onto this bank and the way sound travels, they must have been a good distance away, as no more fish were banked.
Very pleasant morning and I was able to dry my kit off, which is always a bonus.
Until next time
