To say I was itching to get out was an understatement. Nov onwards is usually my time to be out on the bank, the bait industry slows down and I look forward to treading the frosty banks in search of some cold water carp. With the kids now sleeping in more of a routine in between the colds, bad dreams and wanting to be in Mummy and Daddy’s bed all the time I decided to fish a very random overnighter. My misses was very understanding and I also bribed her with the promise of foot rubs and DIY chores!
Turning up at the Cotswold water park syndicate just before dusk in this unseasonal mild weather I was fortunate to spot a fish show on the back of the wind line. I barrowed as quickly as I could to the area and shipped the rods together, eager to capitalise on the sighting. With two mechano rigs sailing out in the direction of the fish I set about getting the house up for the night. I waited until dark to introduce 2kg of Creamino boilies that had been soaked in the matching Dip and Oil plus 1kg of the fast action Creamino pellet to the zone, making sure not to be too tight with the baiting. The food signals would be rising up off the baited area alerting and carp that passes over the zone that food was in plentiful supply beneath them.
