    Default Baiting Back Fired

    Last night I took the dogs with me while I pre baited a swim for fishing this morning.
    Walking round checking permits there was just one person on the lake, Tench are the target.

    I had been in a swim that I had raked the other week, so I baited this swim ready for a few hours fishing this morning. Only one person on the lake, I thought I won't need to to bait another.

    WRONG.

    Got there this moring and a guy was just casting for the first time, in the swim I had baited.

    Tench rolling over the baited area, fizzing bubbles ( not jackos monkey), I couldn't let the baited area and work go to waste.

    I told the guy where i had baited, he cast his second rod into the baited area, result, first cast a 7lb 14oz tench. I went to another swim.
    I left at 10am having blanked, he had had 3 Tench by then over 7lb.
    Thats fishing, you ever had the same thing happen.

    Two swims baited next time.

    I checked the guy looked at the scales and not his watch, like some i know. At that time in the morning and on your watch, it would have been 43lb 3ozs...............

    This happened to me so many years running on the glorious 16th. that I started to think I was being followed!

    So now I don't pre-bait for the 16th.

    Which might explain why I do so badly every June.

    Lets see if anybody has any moral integrity on here.

    If you'd been the bloke sitting on Ray's pre-baited swim would you have given it up ?

    I would...and not just because I know Ray.I think its the proper thing to do.
