Ended the year with a couple of fish, makes a change from my recent results. Just a small jack and an angry looking bream but both very welcome.
Water temps up a bit at 5.5 degrees, just nice to be out fishing again after a week of flu...
Didn't quite work out like that, had to wait 'til dark for small fish at 22:00 and 23:05, the biggest about 7lbs. 3 bream and a foul hooked 2lb pike.
Much less fish activity all round. Still, could have been worse, for some reason I thought the smaller barbel was going to be an eel when I was playing it.
Fancied a change of species but couldnt make it to a tackle shop in time and ended up barbelling again.
Early fish again, my customary 6lber at 19:10, a slightly smaller one at 19:55 and a better one at 20:55. Looked like it would be a double but fell just short at 9lb 13oz. Even caught one after dark...a 7lber at 22:10. Also one bream and a chublet.
Plenty of fish showing, big and small - maybe this is where I should be fishing.
