Just a quickie after work and just the one 5/6lb barbel (18:55).
Have played about a bit with sweet baits vs savoury lately and when I've tried it have just had chub but always on the sweet bait. This barbel must have a sweet tooth. Or gums, mouth whatever it is they have.

As I had a couple of deadbaits in the bag thought I'd pop one on the spare rod whilst floatfishing for perch on the other.
The end result being that I hooked a pike too big to fit into the net. Well, I did get about 1/2 of it in before it got out again and came off. Estimated at about 20lbs I was more than a little gutted.
No perch but did snare a barbel of just over 8lbs on lobworm (17:20) which I'm sure did appreciate the use of my unhooking chair...

Had to wait a while for the next one, worth the wait though at 3lb 8oz.
Only those 2 bites before dark, a couple of quick ones missed later on, maybe ruffe or even bullheads. 2 knocks on the chub rod. And lost 2 feeders.
