Docter Feel Good And Some Nice Crucian Carp
Had a very good day out today with a mate on a little lake we know.You see I do actually fish for those who just think I talk utter bollocks on here.I set up with a rod and reel,mate used a Pole (Boo Hiss).
Had a few Tench to around 5lbs or so then started to miss bite after bite.Typical Crucian Carp bites,very fickle.Changed down to a 2.3 hook length and size 18 hook and just a small piece of Corn.Bingo a nice 'Cru of around 1.5lb.Then throughout the day the fish fed in fits and starts.You would get half an hours action,then slowly the bites would dry up.
Gentle feeding,note I said gentle none of that pile it in here!Brought them back on and ended up with a few more Tench,Roach,Rudd and Cru's.The best of all is pictured.This little beauty weighed in at 2.12,with three others over 2LB. All my fish came off the rod end around some Lilly Pads.
The best way to fish for these lovely little fish in my eyes.Some advocate "Bolt Rigs" as you get more hook ups ?
Where is the fun in that ?Glad I do not need to make a living at this game ?
Time for a beer.
