That time of year again.....

Rate this Entry
Forced myself out last night after work, because if I didn't go now, I probably wouldn't go again! I really struggle to get motivated over the summer due to all the grockles that come down on holiday, stealing our waves/fish/wimmin/carp/cream teas, but I'm planning on fishing after work till 6am overnighters on a water right through the winter, but it's one I've only fished a couple of times so need to get some reccie's and bait in before it gets too dark in the evening.

I managed to get down an hour or so before dark, so had time to watch the water for a bit - I chose a swim that had a view of a lot of the lake and just waited for some movement. One rod with a stringer was cast to a fish that swirled, the other two to "obvious" spots, with a couple of pouches of bait around the "obvious" rods.

Nothing showed through the night - well if they did, the 4367 geese that landed at last light hid them!

5.45 and the alarm went off - not a bleep during the night - so everything packed up and a kilo or so of bait went on to each spot, and a couple around a likely looking spot a bit further up the lake ready for next week.

I really hope it's not a "day" water........
