After getting the rods back out and spots topped up Lennon eventually had another opportunity and after everything went much more smoothly this time, he went on to land his new P.B. A fine linear of 18.12lb and I had two very happy young lads!
Whilst I had been helping Josh during the daytime, he had encouraged me to move in opposite him for the final part of camp and fish mega long in the hope I could pick up a fish or two off the back of him. I decided to bite his hand off and that evening found and baited an area in the middle of the lake. Although it was still a long way off of the fish, I felt much more confident. If any of the carp bounced away from the pressure, we might just have a chance!
Three Ronnie rigs with small yellow pop ups were dispatched to the zone, that was fairly heavily baited with chopped and whole Carp Company Nut Mix boilies and lots of sweetcorn (a bait the Horseshoe carp just seem to love). We all sat back a little more hopeful that night and after showing the lads a few more bits and pieces, such as tying up solid bags and zigs, we all decided on an early night so we could be up watching for signs at first light.
