Trip 60 Carp Fishing – 2019


 

Location – Estate Lake

Hours Fished – 5hrs

Back from two nights on the big syndicate and the house husband stuff done.  I am trying to stick to my Monday day session on here, it’s just hard work after packing up at 6 am on the other syndicate.

20190930_091747

I’m sticking to this swim all Winter, as it gives me easy access to bait up and fish from and it will simplify things if I can fit the odd night in as well.

I will stay on the same spots which I have baited twice since my last trip; once when I left and the other on Wednesday evening.  If I can stick to this routine, hopefully, I will start to get some results sooner rather then later.

Its noon time now and I have finally spotted a carp, it wasn’t too far away from my baited area.  They certainly don’t like to show themselves in here very much.  I had a look round the back of the island earlier on and I think there was fish at the back of the weed bed, but I was not going that far away from my rods.

I do hope I catch another one soon from the lake, otherwise, it’s going to be a long hard and slow Winter.

I knocked up another blank today.

Until next time

Richard

Trip 59 Carp Fishing – 2019


 

Location – Meadow Lake

Hours Fished – 44 hrs

I was unable to get down the lake until Saturday mid-morning, the wife was out at the ballet with a friend last night.  By the sound of things, the lake was pretty rammed and I don’t blame them, the conditions this week have been spot on and a few carp have been banked.

20190928_150701

I arrived just after 1030 and found the lake pretty empty, as most of the Friday night boys had headed home.  So I was in with a chance of getting in one of the prime swims.  The wind was belting down this end of the lake over the next 48 hrs and another good storm was pushing through over the next 24 hrs.  It certainly felt like the best option.

20190909_180940

I set about checking over the areas with the Deeper.  I was looking for a weed bed and a nice clean gravel area in front of it for better bait presentation.  After finding a couple of perfect spots I was very happy with, I spombed out about 10 ground bait balls over each area.  I like to do this in the Autumn months as you get a better concentration of particle bits – rather than a spread over a great big area.  You can never really tell where it will end up when there is a big blow on the lake.  The under toe will carry smaller particles away from your area.  I also put out plenty of 12mm Smokey/Catalyst boilies and I was fishing a pop up and snowman both on a Ronnie rig set up.

Unfortunately, my baiting up skills where rubbish this weekend, I spombed 27 wraps last weekend perfectly, this weekend I was sending them all over the place and only fishing 16 wraps out.  These things happen.  Just a bit more spread about then I would have liked.

20190928_135106

The first take happened just after 1930.  Unfortunately, it was a bream, not had one of them for some time.  The rod was soon back on the spot and I was drying out in the bivvy, the rain had arrived, as forecast.

Wow, that was a wet, windy night on the bank and with no carp to my name.  Mind you, I wasn’t surprised as I still can’t pick up a take when it’s chucking it down.  I was hoping for a take first thing after it stopped……still waiting!

20190930_065301

I re-baited the hook baits just after 9 am, to freshen up the baits and we will see how today goes.  I have spotted a couple of carp top near the left-hand rod, so my confidence was building and with any luck, I would bag a carp this afternoon.  I topped the swim up with a few more balls of ground bait and boilies, sat back and watched the swim.

 

Well, I waited all weekend for a take and it happened at just at 3 am.  The fish headed into the weed and managed to shed the hook.  Not what I needed, but you live and learn.  With an early pack up, my head was soon on the pillow thinking about it and eventually, I drifted back off to sleep.  The alarm clock was off sooner than I hoped and it was time to get home.

Until next time

12 Important Steps For An Easy Fishing Life


Some years ago, when I was working long hours and needed to make sure that every trip fishing counted, I put together a number of steps together to make my life easier going fishing.  In ensured I was not just going through the motions.  I am sure that at some point I was this and it affected my catch results.

1. I always keep my kit organized and ready to go.  Make sure you are topped up with any important item replaced or topped up.  I do this as soon as I get home from my last trip before it all gets packed away in the cupboard.

2. I have found that doing the bait a few days before, will help you be confident that it’s all perfect and it can then be kept in the fridge or freezer until you need it.

3. Make your rigs at home.  You can then make sure they are to your standard.  This is so much easier than trying to do this on the bank.  This way, there is no need for all that extra rig kit on the bank.

4. Take the minimal about of kit you need e.g rig boards, a few leads (there is no need for more than 10 leads).  I use a small tackle box with enough rig bits for 10 rigs.

5. On my journey to the lake, always zone out of work and into fishing.

6.  Check the weather beforehand.  You can start to build up a picture of where the carp may be and swim option.  Don’t get to carried away with the swim options, as this is never a good thing, you will never decide.

7. I always load and unload the car in the same way (I even store my tackle in the same way and also set up like this), this will form a pattern which then becomes normal and will help you.

8. When I am fishing, I write a list of things that need topping up or replaced.

9. It’s very important not to rush, take your time and get into a routine when baiting up.

A. Always have sharp hooks

B. Check rig presentation in the lake

C. Pop up/Wafter check

D. Run the line through your hands to check for any abrasions or nicks in the line

10. My bivvy/brolly is laid out the same way each time.  You will always know where everything is every time, day or night.

Doing this will help you through the winter months when you need to set up and pack up in the dark.

11. Every so often, sort your tackle bag out, overtime stuff slips back into your tackle bag and you find yourself taking more than you need.

12. If possible, have separate bags for bits of kit, so if you are only doing a day, you can remove your brew kit or cooking kit and torch etc.

These things are very simple, however, they will help you and make fishing much easier and you will enjoy it a lot more.

Hope this helps

Richard

Trip 58 Carp Fishing – 2019


20190924_094922

Location – Coombe Lake

Hours Fished – 5hrs

With stormy weather passing through Hampshire today – no gardening for me.  You just can’t work effectively in these conditions.

20190924_100129

But you never know the Estate Lake carp, may well fancy a good feed.  It’s all about learning on here and a completely different approach to my other waters.

I have decided that as you are allowed to use three rods on here, I will get myself another rod license (I only have a two-rod license at the moment).  I feel it would be beneficial to be able to put two rods on the same area over the Winter months, I will be continuously baiting these areas and use the third rod to roam about and try a different spot each time.

20190924_100135

It was looking very promising at one point when there was a load of fizzing going on by the weed bed where my right-hand rod was cast, but it was not to be today.

 

Until next time
