Done the day on Mitre Pool at Bishops Bowls today. 11 1/2 hours session with about 3 hours of fishing in. Was more like a day feeding Carp. Travelling light, moving round the lake fishing dog biscuits on the top, i had 8 Carp between 11lb and 15lb 1oz. I lost 5 through hook pulls as the Carp ploughed through weed. Couldnt get any of the bigger Carp but an awesome day. Fished 3 different swims, 10, 15 & 4. Even had a walk round Greenhills and saw some monsters, just couldnt get a bait near them in each spot they were because of the strong wind. Not fishing for a while between fish kept the bites coming all day in between getting raided by the ducks.
In order of when they were caught.
12lb 2oz

11lb 3oz

11lb 4oz Koi

11lb 6oz

12lb 6oz

13lb 10oz

15lb 1oz

11lb 10oz

Checkbook and pen......again!!!!

Thanks mate, it was an awesome day and my best ever session on there. Only way it could of been better would have been if i had picked up 1 of the bigger Carp in there. <!-- s8-) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_cool.gif" alt="8-)" title="Cool" /><!-- s8-) -->

Cut a 12 hour day session down to 7 from the heat causing the Carp to sun bathe rather than feed. Fishing mixers i manage to lose 2 and land 2 form Mitre Pool Bishops Bowls. I had a go on Greenhills getting a few feeding on mixers only to blow my chance when i missed a bite and spook the Carp off.
1st Carp was this 18lb 4oz Mirror, what a stunner!!!

2nd Carp was this 14lb 8oz Common.

Well done in difficult conditions, weather is really putting them off during the day at the moment. That mirror is a beauty.

Had a go at dawn on surface fishing the canal yesterday morning and after getting a Carp feeding on them i blew my chance by striking a fraction of a second too late. Determind to have 1 out i got there at 5am this morning to try sneaking 1 before work at 10. I put mixers in 6 different areas and kept walking the bank checking them. Nothing came up but i noticed swirls on the water under some bankside plants leaning over the water on the near margin. I couldnt see the Carp but knew it must be a larger fish of some sort moving the water like that. I quitely lowered my fake mixer into the water and leant the rod on the plants using them as a rod rest and took a chance. 10 minutes of swirling water a pair of lips came to the surface and after a 5 or 6 minute fight up and down the canal i landed this Common of 9lb 14oz.

After the eqivilent of about 5 days on the banks chasing them this year to say i was over the moon is a understatement. Well chuffed :D
To give you an idea of the bankside vegetation heres a view of the tow path. I will never ignore the margins for canal Carping after this.
