Town Lake, Killeshandra - 29th May 2012
- Pole at 13 metres, depth was top 5 sections!!!
- Pole Top 3, end of the keep net swim... all will be explained later!
- Feeder at around 40 turns
No bites on the feeder materialised, even after casting around the swim. The other lads were biteless too.
I tried the pole line, nothing at all. In fact for the 4 hours we were all blanking until Fred managed to hook a perch on his close in pole line.
I decided to start feeding the end of the keep net and after plumbing up I had 6 feet of depth. Fred had put another fish in the net while the rest of us were still blanking.
After feeding the keep net line for 30 minutes I went over it and hooked a nice perch, at least I hadn't blanked!
Finishing at 4pm, we packed up on a very disappointing day out with a sum total of 3 fish caught between 6 anglers!
No need to weigh our catches, Fred took the day with 2 fish and I came second with a single perch. I was paired with Glynn again, so we took 2 points.
The weather was a lot better for fishing today, overcast with brief spells of sunshine. The fish simply weren't there. It was like Foxholes on day 1, well it was worse as only 3 fish were caught. The swims looked very fishy. Fishing at top 5 deep on the pole was certainly a new challenge that wasn't rewarded with any fish whatsoever... time to hit the bar!
