Friday/Saturday 20th-21st September 2002

By Aidan Rich.

A 24hr session proved worthwhile for me when I recently visited the Willinghurst Fisheries complex.

On arrival, I set-up my rods on the specimen lake only to be told that due to a leak on another lake, some water had been pumped out to refill it, this left the specimen lake over a foot shallower than normal, as I intended fishing in the margins I decided to move to an area where recently, the 22lb and 28lb carp have been caught.

I wanted to fish this lake again as the first time I did a night session, it was a full moon and two lads in the swim next to me had a cracking time catching 10 carp to 15lb.

I fished the same spot as the two lads a fortnight later but only caught one Carp to 7lb, so felt that the carp were not in this area as it was not a full moon. So with a full moon present I tried my luck on this lake again.

I had decided to bait one area in front of a bush with hemp and maze and fish a boily over the top. The other rod would go out to the middle with a bag of pellet and some free boilies. The fishing started very slow with not even a single beep from either alarm. This went on until I decided to bait up the swim in front of my bivvy which had another reed bush. I again used hemp and pellet, I gently placed my boily in the swim and waited. Around 30 minutes later the rod took off and I had my first fish of the day at 12lb, 6 more carp were to follow with the smallest at 6lb.

The bait I used were Nash Baits Whisky boilies, over the top of some Corn steep liquor pellets.

On Saturday morning, my nephew Ben Eason arrived around 10am, we moved to a lake that I though would be easier to catch a carp as Ben had been out 5 times and not caught anything, so I was determined that he went home remembering his day.
