Kell and myself tried a new pond out today that George told us about Very Happy
Cheers George Wink
Not going to say where it is as it would be unfair on George Wink Very Happy
But i think we picked the coldest day for a good few weeks Rolling Eyes
It was bloody cold after a frost overnight Rolling Eyes
Kell got there before me and set his 2 carp rods up and sat waiting for me lol
Well by the time i got there ( about 1 - 2 hours after him ) he had not had even a knock Rolling Eyes
So i set up with floating bread on one rod and waggler with white maggot on the other and sat waiting for the first bite which i didn't think would be long on the waggler Smile
After about 2 hours and no bites a young lad came round for our ticket money so i asked him about the best baits and he said red maggots are best at the moment Surprised
So off came the white ones and on with reds Very Happy
and it wasn't long before i was into a fish that took me all over the pond lol I only had 3lb main line and 1.5lb hook length Shocked
and i knew i was into something nice lol i thought i was going to lose it loads of time but it started to tire and i slowly drew it closer to the waiting net but it wasn't having it lol ( if i had stronger line on it would be in the net within minutes lol )
anyway after a few more good runs it gave up and was in the net Very Happy Very Happy
not a monster but a very nice common carp with not a mark on it Cool Cool
I didn't weigh it but we thought it was about 5-6lb

Been to a new pond 5-6lbcarpfromhorseshoepond-1
A very welcome fish on a bloody cold day ( for spring anyway lol )
If we had known it was going to be this cold we could have dressed better but the weather man said it was going to be nice and warm Shocked Shocked
that was my best fish followed by 4 roach and not a knock on any of the carp rods Embarassed
But we will be back when its a bit warmer as George says its full of good fish and i trust him Wink Very Happy Very Happy
