Another weekend soon comes around and I'm pleased to say another short session, Last weeks encounter was some what of a frustrating one It has to be said angling soon after the resident Carp had spawned was always going to be a challenge and thinking about It now If I'd of known before hand the situation I'd probably of given that weekend the wide birth?, We managed a bite a piece so It wasn't a wasted Journey
This weekend were hoping things are a lot different and we both hope the Carp are up for some grub? Their's a few anglers present this week and the same swims we were angling from last week are available, Without hesitation we went our separate ways Jumped In the swims and began setting our stall out again In search of a Carp
Rigs and baits we are using In this session remain the same as they did last weekend, We both Introduced free offerings over all our rods nothing to heavy as always being a short session were trying to nick bites for longer sessions were both tempted to go heavier on One and sometimes Two rods?, Everything sorted It's time to stick on the kettle for the first brew of the afternoon and watch the water
The early signs were encouraging and we both spotted a lot of fish milling around In front of us, We experienced numerous liners for a good Two hours before one of ( Marc's ) rods finally rattled off which resulted In one of the lakes smaller Commons
I ( Matt ) wasn't happy with my middle rod which was presenting a Key snowman rig and fished over a mixture of Key and 4G Squid, I was pretty sure that Carp were visiting the spot but were being very suspect regards my hookbait? Decision made I reeled In the rod and changed the hook bait from a Key bottom bait tipped with a Key fluro tipper to a Key cultured hookbait
The cultured Key hook bait being very concentrated and high attract may Just be the edge to draw more Interest to the business end of my rig?
