Sunshine on a Rainy Day

A change of plan seen the Sunday crew turn out at Mescar fisheries

Each one of us talking up how we was going to fish it and what baits we was going to use

I chose to start off with with a hemp based feed with micro’s and dead red maggots for my feeder mix with added hemp oil,for hook bait I had 10mm triggonella pink pop ups and original hard hookers,6mm trigonella pellets ,musselberry reds bandums and a new bait I’m trying out which for today was a 8mm monster lobster pellet all in all a nice menu from Beechwood Baits and  Cheshire particle

Bright sunshine and no wind didn’t realy help with my planned approach for today but I suppose I cant complain with all the bad weather we have had the last few sundays

para lake

Casting approx. 30m into open water with the feeder using various hook lengths from 2″ -6″, it took a while for the feed to settle in but the fish came steady until round about 12 o’clock mainly decent bream ( all my bream today were caught on trigonella 10mm hard hookers )

The particle/pellet mix seemed to be holding the bream in my swim

Whilst waiting for my tip to go round it was a good chance to be pinging some pellets in priming my pellet waggler swim,although no fish turning on the pellets I decided to give it ago when the wind picked up and the sun went back behind the rain clouds lurking,using a small 3g crystal waggler approach as previous weeks brought me a nice chunky carp caught on 6mm trigonella pellets on a band but not much came along after that

The next couple of hours bites came hard to come by for all of us, this could of been down to the quite abrupt change in the weather,the sunshine had gone for good and was replaced with dark clouds and wind then soon the dreaded rain

A couple of pegs away Stewart Rusling Youth Team Co-ordinator at Beechwood Baits was kick starting the afternoon off in style and along side him Dave was getting some nice carp aswell

By now everyone seemed to be getting into the carp Michael and Callum having a few aswell

Switching tactics I now opted to start fishing under a large overhanging tree were I had been feeding on and off all day,sticking with the 6mm trigonella pellets as hook bait I started to get into the carp

It seems like we have maybe turned a corner with the weather we will get bad days but hopefully with the days being longer and warmer it should mean more fish with the right tactics and bait,stay patient and don’t be scared to try something a little different if bites dry up remember you “Get more out of what you put in “, thanks for reading and tight lines until next time its been a pleasure
