I have been out for a couple of short day sessions over the past couple of weeks but I have failed to bank any carp since the last mild spell in January.
I have been keeping an eye on the weather forecast which indicates that we are due some warmer south easterly’s on Tuesday. This should last for a few days so I am planning on 3 or 4 days on the bank at one of my local lakes.
With the nights shortening meaning more daylight hours, the carp are waking up and should go on the feed. I have just received my 1st Spring order from Simon in the form of 16mil HG47 boilies. We introduced HG47 at the beginning of 2012 and I had instant success on the new bait, accounting for lots of carp from local and French lakes and also some massive barbel from our English rivers.
My fishing Diary for 2013 is starting to fill with Angling Lines, with a few lakes on the cards for field testing. My 1st visit is due in 4 weeks to a new venue, Normandy Lakes. There is little information on this new lake as it has not been open to the public before. All facilities should be up and running for our arrival with the exception of a gite which has yet to be completed. Our objective will be to assess the stocks and report back on the venue in general.
A window of opportunity will be with us in a few days and I aim to take full advantage.
We also have 100’s of carp fishing videos – venue videos , technical videos , webcast & news videos.
