Im just getting my gear sorted now. I have a few different baits. Maggots, corn, meat and bread.

Got Hannah to feed and water first thing so wont make the cafe. Gemmas dropping me off before going out tommorow so cant expect Hannah to get up too early.

Have given myself the close season to finish the d*****ting and sort all my gear and replace anything that needs replacing, then ill be out alot more!!
Need to get out and relax a bit I think, far too stressed lately, its not good

Hi Sarto we had a nice day the sun was shining but the fishing was hard to start with and then got better on one side of the lake, guess which side of the lake I was on. Not many carp came outbut I think people enjoyed them selves. We will probably go back when the water warms up if I can get a booking.
1st Gemmo 22lb 7oz
2nd Rob 16lb 11oz
3rd Vassago 13lb 10oz
4th Svenc 4lb 10oz
5th Brian 2lb 7oz
I am going to try and sort a trip for the 17th april not sure where yet.

Was a nice day. Bearing in mind what I weighed in was just small roach I was pretty pleased.

I will work out how to stop bumping fish on those darn barbless hooks.

Hi Glyn.

Had a really good day on Sunday. Although I didn't exactly set the world on fire with my catch (2lb estimated, all silvers) I thought it was a great venue choice and would love to give it another go.

Can't commit to the 17th yet, but if I can I will.

Thanks also for the lift!

Furze is a very nice venue, if you put a search on here you may find some info. I had special permission to use keepnets one day with no match on and couldnt even lift the nets (all 3 of them) out of the water. I had to get in and let them go.

If I remember rightly ive managed 47 fish to 6lb in 3 hours and god was that hard work. Havent fished it in a while so im guessing the fish have grown. Im still uncertain as to wether some fish have been removed though.
