Anybody Catching - Page 13 Empty new venue today

Post  stubbo on Wed Dec 12, 2018 8:55 pm

been out with my mate on the boat on a fairly large water
we just trolled some large replicants about for a while just to find some features and bait fish and structure and the usual feature
we ended up anchoring on a likely spot which resulted in 5 fish to 8lb ish  but we also lost a couple of what felt like half decent fish
so all in all good result on a new venue  , there was also massive shoals of baitfish  so should be a good venue for some bigger girls on the dead's  under the float or drifter tactics   so will be concentrating my efforts to this water for a while  gone fishing no photos yet as I want to keep this venue under wraps for the rest of this season.....till I have blundered the rewards if any.....

I love finding new venues Stubbo, the love of the unknown. Just imagine there are 365 loughs in Cavan alone and its a quarter the size of Yorkshire Shocked Shocked Shocked Shocked Spoilt for choice and head wrecking at the same time.

Did you go back to the big girl water Adie? Shes waiting for you Wink

have you thought about those folding cabs on the front of your boat , they keep you dry and out of the cold wind, not cheap mind , think the main dealer is in Ireland or it used to be

Orkney 520,  and I love her,    just a ball ache to launch alone with a cross wind.  I used her all the time when guiding but havent used it in over 2 years,  what a crying shame Embarassed

When I see pictures of boats I regret selling mine. I thought the other day that it would be a good idea to go fishing the fresh air would do my
cold good and catching a few fish would make me feel better. I now feel worse and I didn't get a bite all day.

Thats a lovely boat Stubbo,  Ive been in a few warriors and love them,   nice Bass too Wink

Adie I bought the house purely for that view,  every morning is different and beautiful,  the lough is nice too lol,  Pike to 30lb 6oz to my guests and of course Trout to 13lb 9oz,  its done me proud Very Happy Very Happy   And I can be launched in under 5 minutes too Very Happy

Psion i feel your pain,  I would be lost without my boats,  but i am tiring of the launch and engine humping invloved,  get well soon.

Today I had a quick 4hr session to break my run of bad luck,  one single run was all i had.  But at 15lb 13oz it was a nice change from the jacks I have been catching.  Its half way to my 30 anyway Wink

Nice fish. Been to the doctors today chest infection. I had a warrior 165 for years when I used to go sea fishing but mates I had fell away so
I sold it and brought a Orkney longliner more for lake fishing and I could manage it on my own if need be.

hi Andy
could I pick your brains on trolling dead's , I mostly troll large lures with some success ,how do you set up for trolling dead's
if you could post a diagram that would speak for itself I have tried it before but kept getting tangled and hit a few snags too, obviously it depends on the venue but do you troll about the margins or the deeper areas ,or does the features i.e. drop off ledges and structure dictate where you work your trolled baits , and also what's baits do you prefer to use for trolling
