Managed 4 hours on the river this evening,had two bites on big lumps of meat resulting in a 10lb.6oz and 9lb.8oz barbel.Just 2oz short of my best.Two very fit fish on this tidal stretch.

Big fat blank for the barbel last night as did all the anglers around me blanked too and i lost a pike,  just a jack holding onto the bait.  River is right down and could do with a couple of feet in it.  I'll be back in a couple of weeks for another go.

I blanked as well last night memacca,went back to the same stretch and not a touch.There's some very big tides at the moment with the full moon,certainly no lack of water.

Back home from a five day stint down Lincoln with the wife and in laws, did a few night sessions for a few hours and had plenty of carp off the top. Packing the car again now for another eight day stint down Lincoln with the lads, more carp off the top, good sport though. Looking forward to getting back on the river week after......

Well done with the carp mate,while you're down in my neck of the woods why not get on the Trent?Close to Lincoln and almost guaranteed a barbel(I blanked last trip Laughing ).I fish a club stretch but theres plenty of day ticket stretches.

Very nice psion, well done on your captures. Steve I couldn't go to Trent as it was work for me mate, I support a lad with learning difficulties and he loves to go fishing (how lucky am i ) so he likes to fish for the carp on a local fishery near caravan site, plus river banks are a big no no because of his disability.
I'm back on the river on Thursday so fingers crossed mate.......

Had an evening on the river last night with a good friend of mine. Very slow and hard due to river been rock bottom and crystal clear. Got a blistering take a few hours into session and rod wrapped round.  Went like a steam train and fought hard,  was really looking forward to getting this one on the bank as it felt like a good fish, that is until my friend said its a carp!!!. If I'm honest I have to admit I was quite disappointed it wasn't a barbel. Great fight all the way to the net though and my first ever river carp so good on that score, it was a mirror of 8.4  but not my intended quarry Crying or Very sad ......

I'll post a piccy when I figure it out

Kev

Edit; No good, tried again to post image but can't do it.... confused
