    Rod Shots

    Morning has broken Caught another one off the spot and a couple of snotty tench last night, getting bigger, 24lb common fought like a maniac too and weirdly it seemed to happen at the right time, I had just woken up and had a tiddle, just standing by my rods thinking why haven't they gone off yet then boom it was away, I was on it before the attx had even sounded and quite a pleasant looking one as well, hanging it out down here for as long as I dare but we are going out today, I'm treating tonight as the last night as we have to leave quite early Saturday, come on le bigguns, I've loved having a lake to myself though, gonna miss it, Better start bringing them in I spose 😒

    Found the carp on my 90 acre reservoir... Up in the no fishing area, they were sat in front the bird hide box thing. I managed to stick my phone out and get a few photos πŸ˜† There was a common further out, probably one of the biggest fish I've personally seen in front of me, it was so wide, the scales on it were huge as well. I would like to say it was over 30! Anyway that was a enough for me I've been sorting my kit out and heading back up there today for a night session πŸ˜†

It's always the way πŸ˜† I've got as close to them as I could, probably about half a mile away tho πŸ˜‚ My friend is just getting into fishing and is on his first session today so we are having a bit of a social, got him set up on a bed of vitalin, he's been hauling in the bream all day and isn't fed up yet πŸ˜†πŸ˜‚

    Tonight's weather is thunder and lightning with rain, biggun weather I hope, I'm out in the eos 2 man Palace front row seat to the lightning shows, pretty amazing as there is hardly any light pollution here, just hoping for some sound pollution from the old receiver box know what I mean 😏😏, (it can wait till it isn't lightning though) I'm not that silly πŸ˜‚ I will actually do a Rod shot this week, I've moved them 3 or 4 times, I've got them at a jaunty angle today at the other end of the swim 😎

    Well I was very happy when the Mrs let me out for a quick morning session at the weekend. It's only my second time this year on the bank so I was buzzing having had a bit of a result last time. Well no monsters this time but did manage to nab one of the VS stockies, this pretty little common. It'll do me.

  8. Morning everybody , sorry I’ve not had time to update this thread , had lots on . I actually fished the weekend after my last post above , since when I’ve spent a couple of weeks in Egypt doing naff all except a bit of scuba dooba diving which I thoroughly enjoyed even if it played (and still is) playing havoc with my ears . I was hoping to get a spot of fishing in but it would appear that since the last visit (pre-Black Death) the Egyptians now frown upon fishing and just about every species in the Red Sea is now a protected species. That don’t understand the concept of catch and release so that didn’t happen unfortunately. Anyway I digress . Yes , weekend of 29th of July I hit my syndicate lake again , the challenge , if you recall , being to avoid constant tiddlers with huge 40mm+ hookbaits … you know the ones that kept cracking πŸ™„. Due to the hot weather the water levels were amazingly low . It’s not a deep lake anyway but certain parts , in particular a couple of the swims I had my eye on , were alarmingly shallow . I’m talking 18 inches deep shallow …not the type of depth I could imagine a 20lb+ Carp to be lying up in. Anyway with the whole lake to choose from I decided on the same swim as my previous visit a month before . They say familiarity breeds contempt , I say I breeds laziness lol. I had a very good weekend . I broke the habit of a lifetime and actually weighed most of the 20 or so fish I banked …just to compare with my previous session ….lightest this time 12lb . The stamp of fish as a whole being bigger this time around . All my hookbaits were 40mm+ B5 and Black snail . The boilies that were cracking stayed intact mostly and those that had split in half stayed on the hair beautifully to get the job done . As most of the fish I caught were obviously having difficulty getting them in their oversized gobs. The most frustrating thing was having to sit on my hands when the transmitter was going into overdrive . They were moving the baits resulting in 3/4/5 second blasts and obviously then dropping them . Being patient and waiting for fully fledged runs was the name of the game . This was the largest of the session , a tad over 18lb .

  10. I've gotten so used to red, white and green from left to right on the bars or sticks I'm sticking with that. The old Delkim ST'S will move onto pike and roach fishing where I only use 2 rods anyway, so I'll have 2 spare indicators after picking up a Β£10 bargain on ebay when I bought another red one while a repair was being done after I left a dead battery in. Oh yes, I had to get a new landing net mesh after catching and tearing my current one with a bundle of weed and a tufty, don't ask.

  12. It's been a while since I banked a fish, so I was a bit rusty. Great fun with the boys last week. Although they lost interest in catching silvers after a couple of days. Caught the same fish next night. Then lost one at the net on last night. Very rustyπŸ™„ over stretched the rod in my hurry to net it, gave it all the slack it needed to slip away😒

  15. Trying out new flavours. The Infrared doing the business. A low double (12-ish?). He was a feisty little fella, so had to unhook in a freshly wetted cool mat, as he wouldn't stop moving in the net.

    A bit of a puddle compared to the reservoir, but the boys have enjoyed catching a few silvers. Lost one on the first night, had a pretty little 13lb scaled mirror at dusk last night. Another reminder why I don't fish day tickets, poor fish had half of its mouth missing 😭😀
