I was very lucky today, the grandparents took the kids to the cinema. I took this opportunity to head off down the lake (be rude not to!).
I had no real thought on the way down as to which end to head to or where would be a likely spot. The only thing I still felt, was to be at the back of the wind or the lee side of it.
I took my normal route around and stopped in the first swim, this was the one I did the other week. The wind was pushing into the corner however the sun was really warming that area up. I took a walk down the lake to the next swim along but it just didn’t feel right today. I do need to get in there soon, I think. The only other swim which took my fancy was occupied, the other bank was not floating my boat at all.
As the sun was warm as it was going down (which made a change). I put two new rigs on, one with a cut down Frank Warwick miracle berry Wafters with a washed out Maggot Cluster and a Evolution Carp Tackle Orange corn stack. I felt the colour may have worked in my favour last time. I put no freebies out as I didn’t wish to disturb that side of the swim.
I then set about finding the perfect spot of the lake, using the Deeper Pro Plus. I was looking for deep water which I finally found with some weed growth.
It was pretty flat but surround by shallow waters, this I liked the look of. I Spombed out the same mix that was left over from the weekend.
But added some Smokey Jack boilies this time. When the light faded, I would move my right hand rod onto that spot. It was going to be a cold night and wind was due to pick up and along with that a few rain showers – not snow I hope.
At around 1730, I moved the right hand rod on to the spot I had founder earlier. I settled down for a bit to eat and a brew before darkness fell – it was 1800 hrs, it’s nice to see the nights drawing out slowly.
It was a very crisp and clear night, in between the rain showers.
With a blowy night and not that much rain, I was hoping for a fish, it warmed up though the night but it was not to be.
Until next time
