Fish Deeper Page

This time of the year, I like to plan ahead as a lot of times, I arrive in the day or just at dusk. The benefits of planning are very much a key to my winter fishing.

I started by looking at the swims. I’m likely to be fishing over these months based on past information and the coming day’s weather forecast. If you have read my blogs a lot, you will see that I have two lakes as part of my syndicate and I split my time on these over the year. It is mostly dictated by the closure of each one, the volume of anglers on each one over the summer months, and I also fish Meadow Lake in the Winter as it’s the only one open.

I use the Fish Deeper page to find different spots from the normal ones as much as possible. By pinpointing these, you’re able to calculate the number of wraps and the horizon makers before you even arrive.

Find your spot, use the ruler to measure the distance, and then calculate the number of wraps.

By removing the scans and using the satellite image you can see which direction you needed to cast and how far away from any snags you will be.

Aiming just to the left of the island and the correct number of wraps, i was able to position my bait with the minimal amount of casts.

Fishing just of the edge of this hump and by reducing the number of casts I was lessening the disturbance in the water in the Winter months.

I hope this helps

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
