Anyone fishing?

Recommended Posts

So looking at the last few posts we're all completely nuts :P

 

I'm on the syndi this weekend. Hope it's defrosted by then, currently solid!

We've had a little bit of a thaw today.

It's the first time in days the grass in my garden hasn't been frozen solid all day.

Mind you we are supposed to get freezing fog tonight so could go messed up by tomorrow.

Had to cancel my planned trip on Wednesday as the lake still had a lid on it.

Absolutely desperate to get out and give my new rods a bash.

Have booked up a double swim for next Friday as my daughter wants to come along and visit the lake for the 1st time.

Fingers crossed the weather gets a little "milder" in time.

Probably as gutting as losing that biggun .... then the next fish possibly being the smallest carp I've caught in donkeys apart from the farm pond with my boy .

If it went 2lb I would of been surprised..... :lol:

Going to have to change my name to stockie slayer at this rate . :)

Two on the bank so far nothing big though.

Priming the spots yesterday seems to have worked again, with the two bites coming pretty quick after the first casts of the day .

Couldn't get out this weekend but hopefully gonna do 2 day sessions on the canal next weekend. Its 6 miles of water and pretty much no features along the banks. No over hanging trees or anything, just each bank lined with reeds all the way along, so don't really know where to start. There's a lock at each end, so maybe try one of them? I don't really know lol.

On the bank now, full of cold. Got here at 3:30 first time I have put my rods out where I can see where they land. Just managed a 6,10lb tench my first fish from this lake so I'm chuffed. Had an occurance on my other rod where the bobbin went right up, then bobbed a bit, I hit it without looking at the tip or anything as I was still full of adrenaline from the last run! Fools mistake.
