We'll just back and blanked...we all did.4 of us went up 2 to a boat.The weather conditions were horrible,misty,drizzley rain,really bad chopp on the water.Tried drifter fishing,baits hard on the bottom,suspended baits,lures.We all fished 3 rods each and never had a sniff.
I get very 'frustrated' as my brother pointed out a few times but that's fishing i suppose.

I reckon the weather had a part to play in it,was very harsh.

That is rough going.

Big waters like that (with the potential to offer big rewards) rarely give up their fish easily. Honestly, I'd rather fish a smaller water and catch smaller fish (but more often).

The weather has been odd. I fished today, expecting many many roach, but they'd all gone deep and weren't feeding vigorously (contrary to commonly accepted wisdom for a warm spell).

If the local water I'm trying to get on pans out, I'll let you know. It's not far from either of us.

Yeah,we did think if anybody got a run it would potentially be a big un as the water does hold some big fish.The area we fished today is a hot spot so to say we were dissapointed is an understatement😔.I myself would rather fish smaller waters with more yield but around here it's hard to find a water that hasn't been emptied.

Keep me posted Jonathan about your plans.

I fished a very large water last year probably had 10 blanks in a row but was rewarded with a 32lb fish . worth all the blanks but its not everyones cup of tea , I used to fish waters where I could get fish all day long , but the same stamp say small jacks up to 12lb , to be honest got a bit fed up at the repeat captures as it got like dail apike at times , these days I seem to sit it out for a biggy , hence I have blanked about 7 times this year......
