Another chilli day on the bank today,the east wind was chilling and the temp was hovering above freezing all day with the wind chill factor.
The cold was keeping the fish deep and lethargic,we used 4lb of bait and ground bait to produce just 2 fish.
Charlie managed a nice bream to brandling worm ledgered on the bottom, sadly Ben blanked despite his best efforts on different baits,and i nearly blanked to ,just before sunset the carp were tentatively feeding on bread crust in the margins,i spotted a common carp feeding about 10 feet from Charlie’s bait and cast a crust on a size 4 raptor i had bought from Steves Tackle this morning just in front of its nose,one slurp and 10 mins later it was on the bank,much to the consternation of Charlie as apparently it was HIS carp! lol
