With a free day from gardening, I was off down the lake. Probably not the best conditions, with bright sunshine. You can’t always pick and choose when you’re free. You just have to make the most of your time on the bank.
I headed to a nice swim in the day only area of the lake. I feel it’ll give me the best option, as it’s an overlooked area. I also need to spend some time with the Deeper around this area, I have yet to build up a picture of the bottom. It’s not going to be that simple due to all the island and overhanging trees, but it’s going to be worth the effort as I may well find myself here a lot in the winter. The lake is very busy in the winter, I may well switch over to long day sessions in these area’s, I am sure the carp will also feel the same pressure.
With winter getting closer, I’m starting to play around with Evolution carp tackle corn stack. This has many color combinations, which can certainly be an edge in the autumn & winter months.
The other rod I’ve baited with a frank Warwick caramel cream wafter, as I didn’t wish to fish a bright white bait, but I felt an off-white/washed out, may do the trick today.
It was not to be, however, I did find some very interesting features in another area, which will certainly come in handy in the future.
Until next time
