Trip 74 Carp Fishing – 2019


Location – Estate Lake

Hours Fished – 5hrs

With a few hour’s free, I headed to the Estate Lake in the hope of bagging a carp. It’s the first since my day and night trip.  I’ve not even had the chance to bait up, just too much going on.

There was no signs of carp when I arrived, just after 9am, so not wishing to make to much of a disturbance I clipped on small bags.  All 3 rods had pop-ups on and with the amount of leaf matter and weed, its the only way forward.  I moved two of the rods to different spots, which I have been also baiting up and kept the other one by the channel near the island.  As the sun gets more on the water, hopefully, they may just start moving about.  I’m 100% convinced that this area holds more carp than the back of the island, a sign or two would help.

Well, another blank trip, maybe time to find another option or go back to the perch fishing lake, we will have to think about this.

Did see a couple of fizz ups but just no pickups or even line bits.

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
