I've been struggling for fish over the past few sessions, so I've not really bothered to report on them. I think it's just down to timing my sessions during a feeding spell, especially now the temperatures have dropped to low single figures and the first few frosts of the year have already happened. Choosing the right conditions are definitely more important at this time of year as the fish will feed for shorter periods at a time.
My latest session was this morning, and with an air temp around 3 deg I hoped this would not put off the fish. I started the morning hoping to catch some more baits from the nearby pool but I couldn't even get the roach to feed. I also had a float fished lobworm out for any perch that might be lurking next to the weed bed on the left. After an hour of complete in-action I gave up and moved back onto the canal to try for a morning zander.
|That should be - " No Chance of Catching " in my case|
|These are all pretty reliable areas - but not today !|
|Even this mouthwatering roach kebab was not enough to entice !|
