Had the chance to get an over nighter in so as it was one of my baiting up nights I thought I'd see how the pre baiting was coming along. The lakes been fishing slow of late so didn't have great expectations but I found a few fish showing in an area so that's good enough for me. Just after first light and one of the rods ripped off and I landed this 21lb 10oz mirror. I'll take that as it's my first trip back since june.

So you've caught a big lump , looks to have plenty of growing potential , and proved everyone wrong - nicely done Smufter ! .

Does that fleece you're wearing count as advertising ? .

Left Nissan about 3 years ago mate, but that fleece is so comfy. I'm glad I didn't give it back to them 😁😁😁

Couple of twenties from a morning session on a tricky little reservoir last week. 20.08 and 24.08.

Not an easy water so I'm happy with these stockies. Now where are those big old originals?

So that slightly pained ,  frowning look is because you are thinking " where are those big old originals ? " , and not because you are a miserable [censored] ? .

Keep plugging away Highy It will come,

Do you ever fish a single bait off a baited area that can work wonders selecting the larger members of the group

Oh well , I guess you're just a hopeless case then , Highy 😁.

I've had a few , literally , 20's , and for me the most exciting / successful method was to stalk them off the top so I physically only presented my bait to the biggest fish I saw - even then a sneaky much smaller Carp can zoom in out of nowhere and snaffle up my bait .

I hope the search for the elusive 20 isn't spoiling your angling enjoyment , Nick has touched on the subject of targets before , and I think he said something like go with the flow and enjoy the journey .

I enjoy it everytime...it will happen eventually 🤞...i know i lost a GOOD easy 20lb a feww weeks ago...but thats fishing...my targets are a 20lb and a (Decent) Mirror Carp out of my local lake (only a handful in) maybe even the "Named sturgeon" out a lake i go...

Mate had it last week.
