Deeper The Perfect Spot

I certainly found the perfect spot the other week using the Lakebook page after downloading my Deeper mapping information.

I was looking for a feature that was prominent around the deeper water on the lake.  The light orange is 11ft 4 & then up to 10ft and on the little point up to 9ft 5.  This was the feature that I wanted.  I baited with a mixture of crushed hemp and chopped catalyst boilies over the next 24 hrs before the carp moved in.  I know they were out there, I just needed them to hold up on this spot and then feed regularly to hold them.  I was very mindful not to overdo it, I managed to achieve the perfect balance and this paid off over the next 3 nights with 8 fish.  For the middle of February, I was very happy with my results.

I doubt this would have been possible without the aid of the Deeper, as the disturbance of a lead/marker float for a long period of time (to understand the feature that I had found), would have surely pushed the carp away from the area and into another swim.

I will leave you with that thought.

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
