Just booked a private lake for a 48 next weekend.There's a few decent commons in there, It's got a cabin too, so I'll be nice n warm, sorted!

Prebaiting tomorrow. Got 15k not too sure whether to throw the load in or just a few k??? 🤔 

I always thought less is more in the winter but a couple of people I know are still piling the bait in and smashing it.

And was watching a vid with Ian chillcott the other day and he was saying he uses more bait in the winter.

15kg of what? Boilie? Particle?

What's the bird life like on there? If there are loads of coots,  tufties etc then they will polish off a couple of kg of boilie in no time.

Yeah, sorry boilies. It's just over an acre in size, never had many birds on there, although there is a resident pair of coots. Alot of silver fish were removed when it was drained about a decade ago. Although I'm told there's alot of young carp coming through, it's due to be drained again in Jan, to grade them out.                                                                That's almost put me off putting out corn and maggot. Although I will take a gallon of wriggles just in case it's too quiet.

Well I went today and I took the son of a family friend along, I blanked and my fishing mate for the day not only caught he caught one of the illusive mirrors 8lb 7oz that hardly ever give there selfs up. It was a great day to be out and nice  for at least one of us to catch.20191227_144716.thumb.jpg.5873304c2ce5a9cd690e3995ad5bfb53.jpg20191227_215201.thumb.jpg.c2d330ba045b0997858546d12072cbb2.jpg
