It’s been a week since my last trip (sounds like a confessional!), my dad has been down looking at options on where to live or if he fancies staying in Wales. It has been a fruitful week in this respect and it has done him a world of good. This is great news and has helped me lots as well. But I now need to go and fish!
I’ve decided that Sunday nights are back in order. After a nice big 40+ came out the other week, the weekends have gone a bit crazy. I’ve found Sunday & Monday night to be very productive in the past, as the pressure from the weekend is released.
In all honestly, I didn’t really have a clue where to fish, as most swims had been fished over the weekend. Also the lake was not looking particular fishy – probably as there were still a few anglers about. We shall see if anything shows as night falls.
I opted for a swim which had some deep water and a good view of the lake. I needed to get back in tune with it.
I was using 12mm Catalyst pop ups on both rods.
One had a double hook bait and the other with an Evolution Carp Tackle maggot cluster.
Perfect combination of products. I then Spombed out a small amount of Spotted Fin new Pva friendly particles, with some 10mm catalyst boilies. These had been soaked on the food dip, for a bit of added attraction. This was all just in time before the rain arrived, which I was unaware that it was forecast, I was hoping for a bit of sunshine for once.
With no a sign of a carp, the night was very blowy night and it was also very warm , I was very hopeful. It was not to be.
Until next time
