Lloyds Meadow is a venue I visit a lot but each visit usually offers up different challenges and today was certainly a challenge with wind,rain,snow,freezing temperatures and no appearance from the sun,
My main task for the day was to have a bit of fun on light tackle and target the newly stocked mirror carp, armed with Drennan Aqua F1 elastic, 18’s hooks and rigs just over 6ft with pole floats taking at least 8 No10 weights allowing me to spread them out to give a slow sinking maggot or caster, my feed for today was dead red maggots soaked in hemp oil and loose feeding of casters, this method of feeding has done me well so far this winter.
Again another slow start not getting many bites or fish for the first three hours but I wasn’t too surprised due to the harsh weather conditions, swapping from top 2 and 2 to top 2 and 1 and fishing about 2″ over depth started to bring me a steady flow of carp, slowing down the feed to keep it competitive as it went through the water layers, whilst catching I was still trickling bait in my other swim which also proved very productive after this swim died off.
These carp gave me great sport for the next three hours each one fighting like its life depended on it and probably the first time they had seen a hook, I cant wait until the summer when these should probably be over a 1lb in weight.
Another lesson today in don’t give up and don’t be scared to change swims, shotting patters and even the colour of your bait, the very pale casters got me the fish today were as dead reds on the hook didn’t do a thing, so another good day at a top venue.
