Pleased to say myself ( Matt ) and ( Marc ) arrived a lot earlier this week and more angling time was available, we were also greeted to an empty venue and had the pick of the swims
The past few weeks have been tough going and our results have been reasonable but the bigger fish have simply vanished, so as previously mentioned being the only anglers present we set off for a walk around the lake and It wasn't long before we spotted a good head of fish In the snaggy areas
After a long conversation It was decided we would both angle Just off the area were we had spotted a lot of fish, Our reasons being with the time available to us In situations like this you can pick the odd fish up, But as afternoon turns Into evening the fish normally push out and we would stand a much better chance of experiencing a bigger hit of fish when they do this?
Another factor I must add which helped In our decision making was the wind, It was blowing a real hooligan Into our faces and conditions just looked good and It felt right
Rods out and we were angling around ( 5.00 pm ) normal tactics and presentations and on It's second outing was our ( Fruit and Nut ) boilies
The swim I had chosen ( Matt ) Is one I have fished In the past and done very well In, all my baits were fanned out and placed at short to medium range, ( Marc ) on the other hand had two rods out at the same distance but his middle rod was fished at range, And within minutes that rod was away but sadly after a spirited battle It found a snag and ( Marc ) lost It
Back on the spot and within ten minutes the same rod was away this time this capture hit the net bagging a small common of the size we have been catching over the last four weeks
After ( Marc ) had experienced some quick action and both bites coming at range I ( Matt ) made the decision to re position one of my rods at range
No sooner had I done this and my left hand rod was away,But just like ( Marc ) I was left In a snag and I lost was to be my only bite of the session , It's not a very snaggy water and we do not lose many fish tonight was just one of those sessions
And that was pretty much that, We fished on until dusk with nothing more to show for our efforts perhaps the wrong decision was made and we should of opted for the snaggs? Saying that just because they were they would they of fed and would we of caught? We'll never know
Another tough session but we still enjoyed every minute of It
Fingers crossed we can do It all again next week?
Until the next blog TIGHT LINES And HAPPY ANGLING
