Last trip of the year

Recommended Posts

I've got the green light for an overnighter tomorrow! 

Due to financial reasons I won't be renewing this ticket next season, so I've got a couple of trips to to try & hook one of my target commons. 

Any suggestions to maximise my chances on a quick overnighter?? 

As I'm writing, I'm already kicking myself for not having brought some maggot!! Eerrrggghhhhh!

Had an eventful night...

I took my 7 year old son. We had a nice afternoon, burgers, little fire in a bbq to roast marshmallows.

He was sick at some point, so at midnight when the pike rod went screaming off, I had a little extra in my sliders!!! Nice scrappy pike, launched itself out of the water a couple of times. Had fun & games disgorging the trebles, he did not like my long forceps in his mouth. I thought it best to recover & release him. I'd say he was a mid double. 

Usual interference from the swans & tufftys this morning, but sadly no carp.

I managed around 15 perch at the weekend in 4 hours fishing.

Biggest probably pushing 2lb but a very good average size around the 1lb Mark.

2 guys fishing opposite were using live baits and had some crackers.

One of them looked absolutely huge from where I was and actually heard him say the weight , 3lb 10oz.

I walked around at the end to have a little chat and they said there biggest was only 2lb 2oz.

Obviously trying to hold a bit of info back.
