My first night on the Airfield lake since last September and it’s so nice to be back on my favorite big old gravel pit.
It’s also nice to be able to set up all the kit by last light. Unfortunately, this lake is notoriously hard after its 6 months shut down but effort = reward and I had a good start last year, so you never know.
Ian (my friend) had done the day with no luck and I was not really sure where to go. I had a look in the middle lake and the large bottom lake. As there were a couple of cars in the top lake car park, I left them alone. It was a hard choice but as the water was more colored in this one, my choice was made, I had not even seen a sign of a fish.
However, after flicking out the Deeper I had picked up a couple of fish in the same area.
This area had a lovely feature in it. I was very lucky and found the same thing for my left-hand rod. Both rods were baited up with an FW Masala pop and a few spombs of chopped Smokey Jack boilies over the top. I was all sorted for the night. A nice rain storm was pushing through overnight and with any luck a carp or two. Fingers crossed for a dry pack up, we shall see.
Well, I had a relatively dry pack and no fish.
