Location – Meadow Lake
Hours Fished – 24 Hours
This week’s trip is going to be cut short, I don’t fancy sitting through a whole day of rain in freezing temperatures just to stay the third night. There’s a good possibility that the rain which is forecast to arrive on Thursday evening may well arrive early Thursday morning! I will just fish tonight and the day tomorrow. The lake is very hit and miss at the moment. I don’t believe it’s worth putting too much time in until it becomes apparent that the carp have settled into their winter routine, as they do on here.
I’ve been a bit selective about my choice of swim and if the conditions are favourable for tomorrow night, I can have a quick pack up Thursday am. This will give me the best opportunity to get away as quickly as possible before the rain.
I’ve also stayed away from baiting up this week and I’m only using single hook baits. This is because there is a steady supply of anglers each night putting bait out and just maybe, we have all overdone it and its something I’m willing to explore over the next 24 hours.
It was a bleep free night and a stunning sunrise this morning. Before the grey clouds arrive I need to work out if I stay tonight or run home before the rain arrives.
It’s just after 1pm and tomorrow’s weather is forecast to be pretty grim. I certainly don’t feel like packing up in the rain or sitting out the day in the bivvy. So, it’s time for a slow pack up and get off the lake by 3pm and then home in time for tea.
Until next time
