Flaming June Catch Reports


Recommended Posts

I can't claim credit for the title, it is a chapter in Rod Hutchinson's book The Carp Strikes Back, a very interesting read that will open a lot of eyes to bait and rigs even now :wink:

 

Anyway, who is going to start Flaming June's Catch Reports?

I'll kick it off then. After a tough couple of nights on horseshoe in the week, I decided for some more punishment and did a night on the syndicate last night. I got there about 9pm and had these two at 2.30am. As soon as the sun got up this morning, I headed home with the fish in the upper layers. We have banned zigs for a few weeks to encourage members to put a bit of bait in to help them after spawning! Otherwise I would have stopped till tea time!!!!

Fished a venue last weekend that I haven't visited in a while. Managed this 20lb common

The fish on my local water spawned 2 weeks ago. Thursday I decided to head back down. I had this common within 1 hour of arriving.

I thought my luck was in and the fish were truly on the munch after doing the deed......it wasn't to be, I had to wait 25 hours or so for the next bite, but it was well worth the wait....

Since starting this month off with a couple of fish, I have not been since due to reasons that I won't go into on here but a very worrying time at my syndicate that I bailiff on.

Anyway, we opened the lake yesterday and with me going on holiday tomorrow, I had to get a night in!!!! Got to the lake just on dark and dropped into a swim that is mostly margin fishing. Just after sunrise, I had one to keep the fire burning whilst away!!!
