Two more three hour evening sessions down on the lake with the full intention of finding how big the roach go.
The wind, what there as of it on my first evening, was blowing in my left ear, unlike last night down my neck, this indicated it was somewhere from the South East. Last night it was blowing quite a bit, straight into my face so a Westerly!
The biggest problem is finding a bait that doesn't appeal to the carp that frequent lake.
So after a bit of fiddling with all the baits available to me from the home stockpile, I've worked out that hemp is still a great attractor, including carp, and that bits of worm work better than whole lobworms...so far.
Both days were predominantly roach, using the laying on method with just enough weight four inches from the hook to show a pick up.
Last night was better, as I concentrated on the piece of lobworm. But, I still got bugged by the carp,including one that snapped me up!!
The fish below was the best of the bunch, so I hope there are some bigger parents to be found
