Christmas carp

Recommended Posts

I've had a few liners but no nearly Xmas carp yet, ๐ŸŽ…๐ŸŽ…๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

I put the front on tonight but I've just pegged it back as it was annoying me, got a hot water bottle in the scratcher though, rods are in the night club propped up on the bar like a 3 for 2 sambuca fiendย  ๐Ÿ˜

Does it count as a Christmas carp if we have put our tree up?๐ŸŒฒ ๐Ÿ˜

ย 

I believe that it is not Winter until 21st December this year according to those who understand the seasons. Christmas is from 24th December until 5th January, therefore any carp caught outside of these times cannot beย classed as a Christmas carp.

ย 

Of course if you have the Christmas tree up and on the bank, the carp you catch will have allowed you to catch it on purpose, so that it can wrestle you into submission and tell you that Christmas is not here yet...๐Ÿ˜–๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ˜…

Elmo , have you any news for us to make this a Super Sunday ? .

๐Ÿ˜Š

Nope it was a pooper Sunday,ย 

Been eventful in all the wrong ways, day ticket lakes would be OK if it wasn't for the anglers, got there done a walk round chatted to a couple of guys who were fishing the day on one bank, fine I asked if I could move in once they were done, fine no problem had a nice chat with them and they were all good, carried on walking round just incase I saw anything, some of the back pegs flooded, now there is a weird rule that one bank is reserved for night anglers, but other than the 2 these OTHER guys were in they were flooded and seemed devoid of fish, but this pair of camoย  clowns wanted to try and enforce that rule and were telling me I wasn't allowed to fish the far bank, I stood up for myself and said i am going to fish over there and he got antsy with me so I had to go and see the owner, I fished where I wanted apparently another couple had been on Friday night and they had enforced it then but successfully, they basically wanted the whole of the main part of the lake to themselves ๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜‚

Not on my watch anyway, I got the rods out on dark but nothing was forthcoming, I had a nice curry using my new ngt 3 way frying pan ๐Ÿ˜…

It rained in the night and I slept a bit woke up at 6 and i thought we were being raided torches everywhere turns out it was quite a few day anglers charging round the lake, I had a few bleeps struck and air but mainly I have had enough of day ticket fishing, call me a snob I don't careย 

Someone had left a bbq in the swim and smashed up the wooden pub table, needless to say that is the last Saturday night I do on a day ticket lake, its hard enough fishing against the fish but put other anglers the angry one stunk of beer at one o clock and eeryone seems to be cheech and chong these days on day tickets.ย 

Rant over ๐Ÿ˜

Other than that it was nice to be out ๐Ÿ˜

Oh Elmo , what a depressing read ๐Ÿ˜ž.

I hope you didn't go home in a bad mood or you might have been told " if you're going to come home in a mood like this you're not going again "ย ๐Ÿ˜ฑย . .

You're a bigger man than me , Elmo , I would have probably given up and gone home , or switched to another lake ; I go fishing to relax and get away from any aggravation .

Let's hope Yonny / you can sort ย out a suitable water for next season ; or a Winter ticket somewhere , maybe cheap because there are not too many takers ? .ย ย

Me too but I wasn't having that they were living in cuckoo land thinking I would just fish in the shallow bit or the smaller part of the lake where I didn't see any signs of life,it was the arrogance of it that got me like they had exclusively booked the whole lake but paying exactly what I didย 

I have been trying to find a new place hopefully something will come along next year, I have asked about a few proper waters where etiquette is still a known wordย  ๐Ÿ˜

I wholeheartedly agree... finished with day ticket waters... on 2 clubs now..ย  much quieter, less litter,ย fewerย idiots and much less traffic on the water...
