Got out on Thursday for a few hours to the local estate lake. 2 weeks ago despite a drop in temperature and a frost id had a good session catching short and down the edge. Today leaves had covered the margins and the water was looking alot clearer. I decided to keep it simple 8mm pellet on topkit + 1 and i set up a margin rig but due to the leaves didn’t think id need it. Starting off potting in some micros with an 8mm banded on the hook. 5 mins later the float slipper away and a carp of around 2lb was in the net. Repeated the next put in and another carp around 4lb came. Things went a bit quiet then had a nice roach which managed to get an 8mm pellet its mouth! Carried on and over the next hr had 3 fish around the 6-7lb mark before things went dead. Some leaves had cleared in the margins so to give the other line a rest i potted in some corn and put in a grain of corn over. After 10 mins nothing so reverted back to the other line. After 15 mins i had my first bite for an hour and it took off like a train. A few minutes later a nice fish of around 11lb was in the net. Next put in i only waited a few minutes before my next fish was on. Unfortunately after getting back to the topkit kit it made a last dash for freedom. Before i could get more sections on my elastic had bottomed out and the fish came off. I decided it was a good time to pack up and 3 hours had around 40lb

After a great session last Thursday got out again today. Fished an area of the lake ive never fished before. Got att setup and plumbed up and found no more than 2ft anywhere! Obviously given the cooler temps it was hard and managed just 1 carp of around 3lb. Literally had no other bites. You normally get roach taking corn and expander but today no. Im sure the lack of depth was the reason and most of the lake starts at around 18inch-2ft and slowly slopes of to around 7ft so there’s plenty of options. Was a shame as the peg looked nice enough! In hindsight I should’ve moved as soon as id plumbed up, but really couldn’t be bothered
