I haven't managed to get out lately, had to do some DIY around the houseNice day out yesterday, tried another pond for a change, mick decided just to fish for carp, two rods etc, while I put a sleeper rod out for carp, and fished for silvers, on the float, I pumped some six mm expanders and put some of the Sonu baits krill liquid on them which dyed them red.
Fed soaked two mm pellets, and fished close in by some irises, had skimmers and bream from the off, plus some nice little roach and Rudd. tried a piece of prawn occasionally but just got small perch, plenty of small perch, but don't catch many bigger ones.
Caught steadily on the float all day, but no carp, mick on the other hand was catching plenty, finished with eight and lost four, I never saw a sign of one in my swim, and we were only about thirty yards apart, still I enjoyed today ,although I've a stiff neck today, from watching the float, probably have a day for the carp tomorrow, give my neck a rest, plus mick is now on forty four carp for the year against my thirty seven, in our usual carp race, good day and nice weather to.
How sexist! how about the missus drops him off, goes to work and picks him up again after? This is the 90's you know!Poor show that, Sheffield12.....Any decent chap would be dropping the wife off at work, AND picking her up again!
Hope you catch though, having made the effort!
