Yeterday evenings trotting session.


Recommended Posts

I had a very enjoyable trotting sesh yesterday evening - thank's to Brian/Lutra for showing me the spot. The pic's are quite disappointing for me as they make all my fish look like tiddlers LOL. I was struggling to take the pic's due to a steep and awkward banking.

Some of the pic's didn't even appear on the camera as there must be something wrong with it. The fish ranged in size from just over a pound (not weighed) to just over 7lb (weighed). The river was very low and running clear - my favourite conditions for trotting if you can find some fast water with a bit depth (2-3ft).

All the fish were hollow and had obviously just spawned. The biggest Chub will be well over 6 later on in the year when it gets back in condition.

Some lovely fish there tigger, well worth the 3 month wait.

I too went out yesterday afternoon for a spot of trotting but only ended up with a 5lb pike !

But it was good to be out on the bank and with so much wildlife to enjoy too.

Thanks for sharing with us.

Good effort sir, I'll bet your arm aches!

Great session mate, you obviously don't need a better reel :P l

Eating wild caught fish is good for my health, reduces food miles and keeps me fit trying to catch them........it's my choice to do it, not yours to stop me!

It could be if you play your cards right......I think Elton ought to rename the site 'Centre Pins are us' or similar.

 

 

 

 

 

Sorry Tigger, again, a great session, well done.
