Trip 55 Carp Fishing – 2018

This trip was a complete surprise, I had a few family things canceled, which gave me the opportunity to do a couple of nights on the lake.  I am never going to complain about, as there is only 4 week’s left on here before it’s winter close down.  I can’t believe 6 months have passed by and another winter is fast approaching, it will be time to get back on Meadow Lake.


I arrived about noon time, after a long look Around and a few stops for some markering, I finally made my mind up.  In all honesty, it’s easy to find carp on here – its the location of the bigger fish that’s the issue and very hard work this year.


The downside of this swim was that I had not fished it for over a year and I also had not put the Deeper out before.  This meant a bit of work has to be done.


I found a couple of nice areas, I baited up with some Smokey Jack boilies and fished a wafter of each spot.


We shall just have to see how the first night goes and then maybe move things about a bit.


The first night past without a bleep, despite plenty of carp being around.  The following afternoon, I pop out for a look around and decided to pack up about 3pm.  I felt it best to come back another day.



Until next time

About richardhandel

I would like to give a brief snap shot of my life and introduce myself; My name is Richard Handel and was born in 1965 in Suffolk. I have worked as a UK Operation & Intermodule Manager for a shipping company. I live in Hampshire now and am married with 2 young children, both girls so I am a bit outnumbered even the cat is a girl! I have been fishing since I was about 7 years old. I started on small local rivers in Suffolk, then moved onto gravel pits and then carp fishing. My personal best is a 39.08 mirror, over recent years I have started river fishing again, on the Hampshire Avon, this is a nice break from the carp lakes. My life has turned a big corner this year, the company I was working for relocated their Operation centre to Estonia. I was offered a job at the head office in London. This would have meant a 5 day commute and working in Stratford. As a family, we did not fancy this, as I would hardly spend any time with the children (and the Mrs). So after 22.5 years, I was given a nice redundancy package and with my wife is working full time. I became the house husband. This has meant a complete turn around in my fishing, as I can pick and choose when I go. I have found a splendid new syndicate to fish this year, which includes 5 lakes and some 8 miles of river with only 150 members. It's an amazing change to the way I am able to fish. I am now trying to start my own tackle business and make a bit of a name for myself in the world of fishing, as I have retired from real work. Richard
