Your fishing day

2,408 posts in this topic

Had a session recently but the temps have been too low there was ice on the pools when I went the day was nice a real mild 14 with good sun but just wasn't enough to get them interested. Prepping for March as we've had a few weeks now 10C or over the bulbs are pushing hard, bought a new rod trying out the Korum Allrounder (12ft 1.5LB TC)  got given some freebies - the grub feeder and some hooklengths so now have that option as well as the method feeder with pellet. Always disliked the cage feeders as they would half empty by the time you got your bait on the bottom but these look tidy, worms do well in them too apparently.

Hello owderb , do you get hassled by pike when you go match /pleasure fishing? Do you ever see big swirls from pike in your swim cutting you off?

Yes of course but my main pond that I fish doesn't have any in fortunately. They are a pain in the arse for my type of angler but on the other hand great to see

Good to hear mate, they actually balance out the fishery so the roach Don't take over the bream , tench and other species. I witnessed my m8 catch a 30 and I've been after one for years. That's fishing for you , any noddy can rock up and catch on the right day.

Better temps now, chose a hell of a day - knew it was going to rain, was supposed to be light which it was at first then the wind came and the rain got heavier (forecast changed from a couple hours light rain to the rest of the day heavy, good old met office!) and sideways. Soaked my bifta which was in my gob a good hour because I was just getting bite after bite and a lot on the drop with no chance to put the rod down. I need to get a keep net and start recording my catches as today was match standard! a lot of 1lb fish coming out, pulled up a brace of lazy bream bigger than I thought because they came up so easy. Finished the day with a nice 4lb mirror.
