Dutchess Lake 31-08-09 Part 2

Waggler fishing at 8ft from the bank and 20ft to my left
over a patch of Hemp, mixed pellet and sweetcorn,
with sweetcorn on the hook produced the biggest fish of the day
this Skimmer Bream of around a pound.
My grandson helped wind in this little Roach
Mixed pellet ready for use.

Sweetcorn can work well but was not at its best today

PVA bag filled with pellets and crushed boillie.
Loose boillies ready to throw on top of the rig.

The feeder rod was very poor today, producing 2 3oz skimmers,
the waggler rod was best catching around 5ld of fish, mainly small roach.
The carp rod blanked, no wonder I don't enjoy that style of fishing.

What no Carp again!

Fished Dutchess Lake again.
Two swims from last week.

Bagwood Lake 20-08-09

Yippee another escape Chit!
Once again went to Bagwood Lake.
My eldest son should have been but his fiance has Swine Flu??
So decided not to use my pole as usual
but used my Barble rod, a light ledger rod
and a float rod.
I managed 2 Carp
This one of 9ld 6oz
The Carp were caught using HAIR RIGED BOILLIES
This one 10ld 2oz
and this one 1/2ld plus more skimmers.
The Skimmers were caught on Sweet Corn.

Good its ugly, Jet black Carp.

Russells 24ld 6oz Carp

Yep back to the fishing again.
My eldiest son said he was going to fish this lake
so I decided I would tag along.
Escape chit in hand I left home at 06.45 and headed
to the lake.
Russell had just woken up having fished threw the night.
I set up my 14.5 mtr pole and my Bardel rod. Russell gave me on of his
Carp rigs he uses and so was ready to fish.
Russell told me to fish the pole rig next to a Lilly plant 14mtrs
in front of my swim and I put the Carp rig around 20mtrs out
and 5mtrs left of the pole line.
Straight away Maggots and Casters bought the small Roach and Rudd
up in plaque proportions.
So Sweet Corn was the next bait to try and straight away
a Skimmer Bream was caught. GO THE POLE.
Next the Barble rod started nodding and a 4ld Bream was landed.
Sweet corn again the bait.
Cast it back out and again the pole float dipped and stayed down
yahoo another Bream on, this time
3LD 10OZ.
And so it continued.
Until 11.30 when the bites died out,
and the rain started.
The rain the forcasters said was not going to hit Bristol!
Don't we love the Met Office.
Russell managed 2 Carp one weighed 24ld 6oz. and some Bream.
Hope to escape again on thursday 20 August.
