Location – School Lake
Hours Fished – 4hrs
Since I was last here, there has been an incredible amount of rain; the inlet and outlet are working overtime. The lake it’s probably come up 6 to 8 inches, which is going to make it hard going again and I will be happy with one fish again. I do have the pick of the lake, with the exception of the inlet end where there is another angler set up. After my struggle last time to get a bite and seeing a lot around the island (where someone was fishing), the island felt my best option and gave me a good view of the lake. If I felt the need for a move – there is sunshine forecast, which may well help me as I’m also at the back of the wind.
I have baited up a bit, in the hope that if a group of Carp came along, I will be able to hold them.
I just had my first take and lost it, which is a real shame. However, a good sign of feeding Carp and the possibility of a few more (fingers crossed).
Just before noon, the right-hand rod was off, this one didn’t drop off and a small Common was in the net.
Glad about that, with another mesh bag made up and flicked out to the island margins. With a bit of brightness in the sky, it was time for a coffee and a bite to eat.
I very nearly moved, but at the same time, a nice fish rolled by the island. I stayed until 1430, but with no more action, it was time for a wet pack up.
This is DEFINATELY the last trip before Christmas! I will no doubt be posted after then, so hope you all had a great time and if I don’t manage another trip before the new year. Have a great time.
Until next year
