This is it, my last trip of 2017 – I just had to have another go before the year is out. Clear the mind before the New Year starts. As the mild weather is still about, I was off down the lake for one last go after the carp. There is a weather front moving through tonight with a load of wind and rain (which will be fun), still not 100% sure if the fish like the heavy rain, more of the not opinion at the moment.
I have gone for this swim purely because I spotted a fish top here on my last trip – it’s the one in the video. The left hand rod is more or less where I think the fish was and the right hand one is a similar distance out. I did dump some bait here before I left the other week, however the bank has seen some angler pressure, as you can tell from the picture.
With this in mind, I am only using large Pva Bags filled with Betafin Pellets Soaked in Minamino for added attraction. As always, you need to give yourself the extra edge, I have also added a load of liquid into the bag.
With the sun going down, I sat and watched the water until the rain arrived just after 6 pm. Time for a few leftovers from Christmas and a glass of red wine to wash it all down. Let’s see what the night brings (other than the rain and wind), a nice lump to end the year on would help.
The wind and rain did arrive big time about 9 pm and continued until well past the wee small hours, when I finally got some sleep. The Delkims did they job in the wind and not a single bleep was heard all night long. I had a very boggy pack up and headed home to ring in the New year.
Until next time
Happy New Year Folk’s
