Trip 59 Carp Fishing – 2018

I was lucky enough to get the opportunity to fish a midweek night and I was soon down the lake, armed with a few ideas from some Deeper mapping on my last trip.  Unfortunately, the wind was pushing nicely into this area and sure enough, the only other anglers on the lake where in that spot.  It did look good and I surely don’t mind that, it will be interesting if they have any joy.


With the way the wind was pushing, I looked in a couple of nice swims but somehow ended up where I fished at the weekend!  It was once a bogey swim for me, which had changed over the past months this year and it defiantly worth another shot.


The wind direction swung round in the night, it could well pay off.  I baited one of the spots where each of us had fished at the weekend, with a good load of catalyst and Smokey Jack boilies.  I fished both rods on Miracle berry Wafters, Ronnie Rig style and we shall see how the night goes.


Much to my surprise, the swim next door produced 2 X 35+ common carp and I blanked!  Just goes to show, if you’re not in the right spot, you can easily blank.

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
