Catch reports

Recommended Posts

First outing since October - age and various infirmities kept me away from fishing, but Norma and I did toddle out for a short session on a local pond yesterday. Not a lot caught, just perch and rudd, but it was a glorious day, early spring flowers a-flowering (celandine, wood anemone, primrose and cuckoo flower). Nuthatch calling loud enough for me to hear and in the sky a red kite - they became common in West Sussex last year, but this is the furthest east we have seen one.

 

Thursday we had a non-fishing outing to a local reservoir and saw the first Little Ring Plover (3 birds) of the spring.

Just testing if my pics can be posted. A good day at a delightful venue with over 20 small fish and 12 carp like this to 10lb. I blanked yesterday on a different water so needed a result.

Yup, recognise it Mike, the one we didn't fish :).

 

If your having difficulty seeing your floating bait being taken at range, you could just use a self cocker, like a drennan puddle chucker float etc. I know the line comes off the bottom and might cause your line to sink and pull the bait toward the float etc, if it does just recast more often. You could even use a ruber on the top of the float, so the line comes off the top and see how it casts.

There used to be designated floats made specially for this purpose, maybe someone can point one out for you?....i've looked for them on ebay but can't see any.

 

Forgot to say, I don't mean the laying down self hooking things, I mean a float that stands upright and the line goes through an eye on the top and the float is weighted at the base. When a fish takes the baot the float is pulled over.

Heres one of these floats Tigger on the £1 fishing tackle site https://www.onepoundfishingtackle.co.uk/product/eft-carp-size-5-controller-float/

 

It can be either used with the line going through the eye at the top of the float or through the eye at the bottom.

 

NB: I have a selection of these floating bait controllers in my Carp tacklebox.

Yup, those are the sort I mean Keith :).

Someone did them with a taller sight tip but I think the one in your link would be fine, can't argue with the price either!

 

I'd forgot all about that pou d shop, thank's for the reminder Keith!!
