    Sorry I really should’ve updated. Arrived last Friday to find the lake very busy. All main swims taken. As there was three of us fishing we were quite limited when it came to swim choice. Ended up down in swims 23 24 25. Looked good for a bite but wasn’t to be. The main reason for the trip was a bit of a social and few glasses of wine. Had a great time. The place seems well run and everyone we spoke to were pleasant and helpful. I did find it strange that at 6pm we were locked in. Abit like fishing Alcatraz. The only disappointment was the amount of rubbish left in swims. It was sad to see bags of rubbish thrown into trees. Some people ruin it for all. Id go back in the spring but I think I’d aim for a midweeker and pray it wasn’t so busy.

    thinking about giving up.....

    Thank you for starting this thread, I'm not new to fishing, but just started Carp fishing. I live in IN. on the Ohio River. I fish a channel off the River called Pigeon creek. Its loaded with Carp, Cat-fishing at dawn, I would see Monster Carp, I estimate to be around the 30lb range break the water next to a barge all the time. I went out and bought new Carp gear, spent a lot of money only to get Blank, Blank and more Blank. one day fishing down the creek, a school of carp Mocked me, they came up about 3 feet from the bank and stared at me. I packed up and went home. Thanks to the Lads on this Forum, I learned that they were spawning. I mainly fish with Method Feeders down the creek, to my surprise there are some big ones down there as well. Blank. Blank. Very discouraged, but never gave up. I watched a Video by Catfish and Carp, Luke fishes the Rivers here, he has some great easy to make and cheap recipes for method feeders. the one I hadn't tried was his Rice, Banana and Chocolate. I caught my first Carp with this. Rice and Ketchup recipes work great to. Time of day at the break of dawn and when the sun is going down and after 10pm with choice bait has been the key. I bought some artificial red worms off of E-bay from china to try, Cheep. used them with my method feeder straight on the hook and hook only with no weight. Working very well, Catfish like them to. I do soak them for a couple of days prior After I caught my first Carp, which took for ever, I gained confidence and had learned a little to. Carp fishing just took off. I wanted to give up and sell my gear and go back to Cat fishing, but I couldn't, I wanted so bad to be successful, Love my Carp Rods and Reels, there Awesome and that thrill of the explosion when Mr. Carp takes off for the border. these River Carp work out unlike the Lake and pond Carp. they swim up and down the river in Strong currents for long distances, There powerful fish and you know it when you have them Hooked. Never Give up.
