Bites were hard to find this week but Matt & the lads still banked 9 x 30’s
Carp fishing is always very weather dependant but no time is this more true than early season. This week it was the constant northerly and easterly winds than really challenged our carp catching skills. Some nights the lake would shut down altogether others it would do just one bite between all of us! Location, of course was key as was baiting strategy. Carefully placed/cast singles proved very effective as did scattering baits over a wide area and then fishing one in amongst them. It’s easy to kill areas by over baiting in this scenario and sometimes simply moving swims and changing line angles was enough to get a pick up. Despite the conditions, we caught an unusually high proportion of the larger carp and they all looked stunning in their winter colours. We hope that this year’s customers have as much fun as we did trying to outsmart these wily carp!
