big roach?

Posted by viney , 29 March 2013 · 283 views

After hearing of a local day ticket water that holds some big roach and perch I decided to have a shot at targetting them.

The plan was to catch them on the float, I missed a couple of bites early on then some noisy t**** set up the other side of the tree I was fishing to and starting hammering banksticks and shouting so I moved to quivertipping a maggot feeder to the far side. This produced 3 roach to 12oz.

Another group of loud irritating types showed up down the other end of the lake (altough I could still hear every word they said!) So I called it a day, I guess that's the risk of day ticket carp fisheries but at £9 for one rod I very much doubt I will be going back any time soon.

Really sorry to hear it worked out like this. I'm lucky to be able to go on a Monday. The hammering of bank sticks is a nightmare as you say, but well done getting them on feeder on the far bank!
