On the first day of my campaign, I had already wrapped my rods at 14 wraps and did the same with my spod rod, so I was fully prepared for my evening session. I always make sure I am completely prepared before I even see the lake on my first trip, so I had got a few kilos of maize and I poured some krill liquid over it ready for my evening attack.
As I got to the lake, everything was in my favour. The wind was a nice south westerly, blowing into the area of the lake where I was fishing. The sun was still high in the sky but in the distance, I could see a few clouds start to roll in, the moon phase was a full moon which I prefer when targeting Rudd at night. As I got to the swim, I made sure everything was in its place and started to spod 5 spods full of maize out onto my spot and I did this before I started every session. I had started off using 3 rods but realized that when the Rudd kick off, it is hard to concentrate on 3 so I went down to 2 after my first session.
