Its my first trip of 2018 and the weather is pretty rubbish! The lakes have been fishing the same as the end of last year but all the same, it’s so nice to be out and start a new year on the bank.
In fact, I have gone on the easier lake – in the hope of bagging my first fish of the year. It’s going to be a hard one I think but we can only try.
I have been asked to join the Evolution Carp Tackle team, which is great news as their artificial baits are second to none. I will write more in the future but above are a couple of item I like the look of very much. The Corn Stacks, the pre tied cocktail bait ronnie rigs, with a small Stix Mix bag made up of Spotted Fin products this combination has got to pick me up a fair few extra fish this year.
The maggot cluster rod is just on the corner of the overhanging tree to my right, with a small amount of Betafin Pellets and some broken Catalyst boilies, it’s all set. The orange corn stack rod is going to be a roving rod, well that’s the plan…got to spot a fish first!
With no joy within the first couple of hours, I was off down the other end of the lake, looking for another likely area. The warm margin to the right was looking just perfect, with another bag on, I flicked the baits out again and crossed my fingers.
With only a couple of bleeps (I am sure it was the wind) that was that for my first outing of 2018.
Until next time
