November Catch reports

Recommended Posts

Popped over my club lake yesterday... a nice slog to the top of the lake and I dropped in between two dying off lily beds....

I'd had a bit of luck on this swim earlier in the year with a 14 & 18lb'ers out so I went back with my newly rebuilt Sharpe's and Merlin's and dropped a prawn bait on the edge of each beds.

at about 10 am I poured meself a coffee from my flask and of course the left hand rod ripped off and the coffee went everywhere and I missed it by a country mile...

I rewound and rebaited  and back out it went with a couple of broken prawns and a handful of pellets... At about 11am I saw two fish enter the little bay and the bow waves disappeared as they dropped down onto the channel between the pads... a minute or two later the left hand rod tip pulled round and I lifted into the fish....

All hell broke loose as I tried to keep it out of the lily beds and a couple of big bow waves headed out of the bay at the commotion... I got it in after an edgy scrap and once on the scales went 23lb 6oz... I hadn't set up the phone on my selfie bankstick, so a mat shot it had to be.... what a stunner it was though.....

Well pleased and my 2nd 20 this year... after all my woes with my back the operations and retiring 2 weeks ago it's all been a bit fraught... good to get back in the groove again

Banked 13 fish last night after arriving at 5 and leaving at 9 this morning. Pulled my rods in at 4am because I hadn't had any sleep and I had work in a few hours. Managed to grab a few hours, woke at 7, got the rods back out and caught the daylight Common below. Safe to say I'm blooming shattered.

Not posted for a while but had some luck on Sunday when I took a mate out for a little social/ knowledge passing session. Had 4 fish up to 17.3lb and lost one that felt a lot better than any of the others (always the way) got absolutely drenched in between the car and the lake too which was delightful 😐! my friend had 3 up to 21lb 1oz ( his be pb) so he had a mega day which pleases me no end 😁 always good to help someone get their pb. 

Top is a couple of my fish and then my mates be pb below

Strewth Ginger you certainly work hard at your fishing , I go fishing to try to relax , but then I don't catch anything like the amount you do ! .

Effort = Reward .....sometimes 😀 .

 

Yeah this is more active then last lake i was fishing. I dont think i will carry on this venue too long as its a bit to much when it comes to working the next day!
