Club lake - 22/03/2011

Short trip to the lake after work for the last couple hours of the day. Nobody in the corner, so dropped in there again. Put some chopped worm in as usual, but sprayed maggots over the top every few minutes in the hope it would get the small stuff excited with the perch following on. Seemed to work as within a fairly short time the swim was alive with bits that scattered every time I raised my arms. This was quite often as I was blowing my nose every five minutes as my first cold of the year took hold! Soon started getting bites on the worm, but failed to connect with the first few, so swapped the whole lobworm for a couple of dendras. Had desired effect. Had a couple of small ones before I had to use the landing net on a fish of 1lb 8oz.

Bigger please!

Carried on and had three more small ones before it was too dark to see the float. Drove home with a dripping nose and thoughts of an early night!


  1. Ian, another nice perch well done. Think I know the swim you are in now after the photos from your last post and again mentioning it being in the corner. Mums the word!!

  2. Ha! Yes, it doesn't take a genius to work it offence! They don't seem to be there in same numbers as last couple of seasons though. Will probably give it one more go then it'll be tench and carp. Cheers, Ian.
