With the weather so mild, I had to take the opportunity to do a quick overnight. After gleaning some information the other day from a fellow Syndicate member, I really fancied one end of the lake over the other. I had three swims in mind, unfortunately one had all ready got an angler in, the 2nd one a tree really needed a good prune to be able to get the bait in the right area, so (in true Goldilocks style) I settled for option three. I was very happy about this swim. I clipped up the rods on the areas I fancied and put on some small mesh bags filled with my updates stix mix for the winter. I will let you know about in the near future, if I catch of course.
Sorry photo’s may be a bit boring for the next few month’s on my quick over nighters, as I have to set up/pack up in the dark now.
Both rod’s had the Spotted Fin Smokey Jack on. One with a wafter and the other with a pop up. I did stick a few baits out in the general area – to get any carp hunting around for food, let’s see what the night brings. Plenty of sleep or plenty of carp, you never know and that one reason we keep on going week in week out.
With plenty of liners early on in the evening and the odd fish topping it was looking good for a take. This was sort lived it all went quiet and a good night sleep was had. I must say was I bit surprised. I am off home now and then back for a few hour’s pike fishing with a friend today. Let’s hope this is more fruitful, mind you it’s going to be a bit of a struggle on the lake to locate the big pike I think.
