Bad man!

Recommended Posts

Having had a ride out on the pushbike today, I've found three spots of interest (one on a river, one on the local canal and one on a pool) and have just put a bag of pellets in my bag so I can start a quiet pre-baiting campaign on my way home from work tomorrow. 

If the lockdown eases, I'm looking forward to catching a few fish.

On the pool, that's a real possibility but I've never seen anyone fishing the spots on the canal or river - the place on the river in particular would have been unlikely to hold more than a few little chub prior to the floods but is now about 60cm deeper than it was with a clean bottom.

I baited up a swim i never saw used before ,it wasnt even mown as it was hard to get to ,spent a few extra hours over the close season walking to it chucking in bait .

The big morning came i walked to the swim past a few unused swims only to find someone sitting in it in the gloom at first light !

I fished in the real swim next door hearing him landing fish i should have been!

From that day on i only fished only 1 swim ,if someone was in it i went home hoping to get in it after they had gone and chucked the unused bait in it!

We used to mark pegs that were being fished on the Severn when we were lure fishing and go back with the bait rods in the evening.

They were mostly wasting their time fishing through the day but would do a very fine job of pre-baiting for us.

Seen real tree clad Carp guys with the oblig sun gasses camouflage bucket walking the banks of the  Thames, as we chug by on the narrow boat and watched as they pile in their bait on their secret spot and I think to myself why not dress normally and have a rucksack 

I could easily turn round Moor up and fish it but that really is a tad unsporting so I never have, have witnessed fisticuffs where some have inadvertently fished a baited spot though 

Prebaiting gives a great edge but can easily backfire if your bspottedor baiting an obvious feature others may find appealing 


We are not putting it back it is a lump now put that curry down and go and get the scales

have I told you abouit the cruise control on my Volvo ,,,,,,,bla bla bla Barder rod has it come yet?? and don`t even start me on Chris Lythe :bleh::icecream:

I went over the canal local to me recently and noticed a scrote with his bratts lure fishing.

I honestly don't know if this is bad or not, I mean the towpath was strun with walkers etc.
