Manor Farm Fisheries, Biggleswade, 18th March 2011
On the way up I chose to visit Manor Farm Fisheries in Biggleswade and tackle the Blunham Lake, one that I've not tried before.
The lake was pretty still, wind wasn't up and it kept on threatening to rain. The pole line was 10 metres out where the depth was around 6 feet.
The pole line didn't produce anything other than roach. While fishing I noticed that there was bigger fish crashing out towards the middle of the lake.
I was the only person fishing the lake all day, so after spotting this activity I took out the feeder rod, 6lb mainline with 4lb hooklength of about 18" to a size 14 and put a nice juicey worm on the hook.
Luckily some lads were walking by at the time and they took the picture for me. I was over the moon.
Mark popped by to visit during as he was passing by. Another carp came to the net although it was only around 1.5lb.
One final carp later in the afternoon and a very successful session a Manor Farm, worm being the killer bait. A lake to yourself all day, not often that happens.
