  1. I managed to nip down for a cheeky midweek day sesh yesterday. My pre-baited area is still not happening which is really disappointing but that didn't stop me doing whatever I could to catch one of those old originals. I managed to keep track of the fish as they clearly reacted to a brand new south westerly. A well placed pop up with about 30 freebies did the trick and I was very happy to land another old'n. Really nice long fish. A repeat, but I could never be disappointed with a carp that's older than me.

  7. On Thursday I popped over to the res on one of my weekly baiting trips, with a day sesh due on the Friday. As soon as I arrived I just knew I'd struggle to sleep that night (due to excitement for the next day). It looked absolutely BANGING, there is just no other word for it. I saw a couple of carp show, and there was fizzing on my spot. It was almost a shame to ruin it by chucking spombs all over the place but that's what I was there for so that's what I did. At home afterwards the Mrs got a right earful about how confident I was, what I was going to catch, etc etc. Poor girl lol. I did

    There isn't a lot of point going if you aren't positive about it, I was gutted to leave earlier it felt good for a bite but the kids had had enough, I think I may have accidently hit a rolling carp with a catapulted boilie πŸ˜• Going to smash em next time though πŸ‘πŸ˜

  18. Slightly off topic but I gave some kids a night to remember. I was all night barbel fishing right out in the sticks when at 3 in the morning I heard some kids on the far bank coming down from half a mile away singing what could be described as "racist rugby songs". When they got opposite to where I was fishing, I dipped my isotope underwater and let out a piercing werewolf howl! They absolutely crapped their selves and and a few more howls had them running away. Well worth disturbing the swim I was fishing at the time and I dare say tales of the "Beast of Wiltshire" still get told!

    Woke up at 3am this morning (at home) to go the toilet, Mrs got up too, I says what we doing today? Go Fishing if you want, car was loaded for 4.30am. Come to a lake I have never fished... Its called 3 Sisters, it has a race track at the side of it. Its more or less a park lake / nature reserve lake... Nice fish in it also. Also the fella that had the lease (same fella as Orrell Water Park) has lost the lease to this place as was caught trying to take fish out and put inti Orrell.

    Well is this going to be the day, I'm excited, nervous, tense, worried that the spot I've been baiting for a month will be taken when I get there, I can but try and pray it is free , it feels ready and I need to be there, bait is prepped, done some fresh rigs, charged everything, I will be getting there as soon as I can, praying those fish that visited the other day are keen for another feed, I feel a bit like braveheart ready for battle 😁 Now I've just got to get there, littlun has a stay and play at school then I'm hoping to sneak out this afternoon, this is what it is all about the buz

    August catch reports

    Having done next to no fishing this year I was very excited to begin my autumn campaign on Friday. I was actually due to start this week but conditions were improving so rapidly last week I just had to take the Friday off to get down there. I've only been baiting for 2 week so wasn't really expecting much to happen. I got down to the lake at 04:30 and spent the first hour or two just looking and saw very little. I decided halfheartedly to get the rods on the baited spot but it was clear that it wasn't exactly kicking off down there. I kept my eyes open and by 7am I'd seen some activity wa

  33. All coming together nicely, I like the sound of a REAL BIG ORIGINAL 😁 Well done Yonny πŸ‘ I've often been tempted to try a water shot lol but I'm usually on my own, so don't bother, I would always get one on land first just incase, you will have to catch a bigger one mate keep your chin up there is still time for more πŸ‘

This is the 11lbers tail 20lb4oz both sides The 15lber I regret not getting a proper photo with And the stunning 17lb blank saver Not a bad weekends work, shame about the other 3 nil pointers though, but a lot happier than before the 17lber this morning, I am convinced that first one I lost last night was one of the bigger ones, we will never know though so I will just have to try and catch it again sometime πŸ˜‰

    20lb 4oz lovely colours again though I seem constantly amazed how big twenties are still, I did think it was a mid 20 at least till I weighed it, if I ever catch a 30 I will think its a shark, hope one slips up soon 😁 3 20s in 3 overnighters I can take that though happy days

  47. My mistake before this one was buying a cheap compact bed chair for my brolley shelter lol Bigger bed, bigger shelter I thought after suffering 2 nights in the compact brolley and bed. Now I've got a bed almost too big for the car and a shelter that weighs a tonne. Back to the drawing boardπŸ€¦β€β™‚οΈ 2 Beds and a bivvy for sale, I give up 🀣

    Mine isn't going as well as I'd hoped. We're still seeing serious issues with algae, the fish aint acting themselves. Despite that the naturals have exploded this year (last week I bought 17 x caddis back on one hook bait 😲). There's too many tench/bream to bait with naturals so that's out of the question. I'm putting hardly any boilie in my mix as I'm not convinced my spot is being visited with any regularity and I don't want the spot going sour. Instead I'm just putting bits in that can be cleared up by anything. Conditions are improving which will help no end but the weeks are ticking by an
