For the first time in a very long time (probably since early July), I am out for a few hours in the day time. As luck would have it, I was down the lake by 0910. I had the knowledge that I normally get a run between 0945 & 1045 from this swim. Being Tuesday, the lake had a few people on it, so I thought I would give it until around 1130 and if no joy, move into the day bay ( if no one else turned up).
Let’s see what happens! I have made up a stick mix with a few Spotted Fin products, I will do a blog about this in the future. I don’t wish to put any pressure on feeding time, with a load of bait going out. Both rod’s have a Ronnie Rig on, with a bottom bait and the other with a snowman rig.
With no joy by 1100, I was off looking for another likely spot. A nice warm wind was blowing into this bay, I certainly fancied my chances. I had not seen or heard a fish at the other end of the lake. So even if I blanked, it would give me some idea of any other area the carp may be in.
One rod is along the right hand tree line and the other is in open water. This is where I had a fish the other week, no change in tactics on the bait front.
With only a liner and a rod tip knock to excite me today (I also had a numb bum from sitting on my bucket as the chair is safely in my garage at home). About 30 minutes to go, I was still feeling hopeful and I still had seen no real signs of carp. There were 3 anglers around the complex, setting up. This may well have kept the carp hidden away.
Unfortunately, no luck today
Until next time
