Looking Back Over 2019 Part 10 of 10
I’ve decided to look back over 2019 as part of my Podcast series and will feature multiple trip in one long podcast, from pike to carp fishing and easy lakes, to the big water I love to fish so much.
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
I very much hope you have enjoyed this series of podcast, looking back over 2019 session.
Until then Richard
