Is it really what they want?

Pondering

Is it really what they want?

At times, this is something we all need to ask ourselves to make sure those fish keep ending up in the landing net. It is all so easy to keep banging away with the same methods, baits and baiting strategies simply because they were working so well a few weeks back. It is all too easy to keep doing the same thing and simply accepting blank sessions because the fish which showed, just weren’t up for it. I fall into the trap myself, when I get things right and seem to be catching consistently, I sometimes find it difficult to know when to change things again. Comfort zones will always be zones difficult to step out of.

During this Hot Weather

Shaun Dog

I received this question via Facebook  to-day and decided to share it as well hoping it helps a few more out in their swim choice etc...

Question: I’m going fishing tomorrow it’s going to be 29c would you say it’s a waste of time on the bottom with a rig or better to go to a float pond and fish on the top with a dog biscuit?

This is a very good question that deserves a little more than ‘forget the bottom bait rigs’. The fact that it was from an old mate Gary Marlow, someone I knocked around with all through school days,  we were even in the same punk band for a short while before I found myself taking a different route in life needing my time on the bank much more than I needed to be in band practice. Naturally I was moved on and must admit to feeling a little envious once they started to play gigs. Ah well, I became much better with a fishing rod than I ever was on bass guitar. 

Natural ingredient bottom baits - Still catching in scorching conditions

I hadn’t planned it this way at all but my last five sessions have been on totally different waters and all have been a great success in these awful carp catching weather conditions we have been enduring. With temperatures soaring, the carp have been no-where near the bottom where my baits have laid for much of any day. Now don't get me wrong, I used to love surface fishing, but these days the gulls simply drive me mad. They never used to be an issue during the 80’s but now nature has changed tenfold and continues to do so with man’s interference thinking they can just release a few of these and a few of those and continue to net tons of fish at sea with no changes.

Keeping track on the carp whilst you are not there.

Current venues on the office wall

I like to keep an eye on where I expect the carp to be between trips to the venues I fish. It really does surprise me how s0 many anglers turn up at the  venue and know what the weather was doing on their last trip, where the wind was blowing and everything else, then turn up for their next trip with little idea what the wind has been doing between trips and indeed the weather.

Turn hot bright weather to your advantage.

We often find ourselves complaining about the weather. Be it too bright, too hot, too cold, too windy, too wet and so on. But, to be fair, the weather conditions might not be conducive to heavy feeding at the moment, but they are absolutely perfect for taking full advantage of in two different ways.
