28/02 Trent

1st chance to fish for perch for a while, conditions having picked up a bit. An OK day in that 3 different species were caught, unfortunately all a bit on the small side...but at least I caught and had a few bites. Started with a small pike on worm
Followed by a small perch on worm (well maybe not that small, may even have made 2lb as it was quite rotund)

And a small zander, not on worm

Had a couple of weeks off fishing due to the weather, still cold unfortunately. No bites/ fish/ signs of life...

01/02 Trent

Having walked past this swim numerous times, as good as it looks I've always dismissed it as being too narrow, too snaggy looking. Gave it a go tonight and it wasnt too bad. I'd been sat down for approx 5 mins when I got my first bite, a zander of about 5lb

20 mins later and a bite on the same rod, and a really deep one of 9lb 15oz. Quite close to my target weight of 10lbs...

Missed one on the other rod as I rebaited then missed another on the same rod before the good rod indicated a fish and duly hooked up. 9lb 8oz

Quite a frantic hour and a half...things returned to normal after that, only one really tentative bite at packing up time.
