Sunday 01/09/19 went to Lake of Tranquility again now I know the bait to use (so I thought) only me on the lake? Why?..... soon found out, same method and bait as last week, could not buy a bite, 3 hours and one 4oz skimmer I gave up. The only thing I could think of was that it was a lot cooler during Saturday night, anyway that’s fishing.

Monday 02/09/19, thought I would go to Chester Lakes now all the kids are back at school, fished corn under the rod tip in 8 foot of water at the bottom of the shelf, 2nd put in got the holy grail, a Tench of around 1lb, first I have known be caught at Chester Lakes since starting back fishing, from then on it was carp after carp ranging from 4lb to around 9lb they certainly know how to use the depth to their advantage, they all gave a good account of themselves, after 3 1/2 hours ended up with 11 carp one tench and a lonesome Roach.

So two days of varying success. ???? will be Thursday before I am out next.
