Decided to have a practice down on the canal at Trosa . it was glorious sunshine that greeted me and stayed with me all day just taking the edge off that sea cold wind. The previous days rains had pushed through a lot of water so the current was much stronger than normal plus the water was still high from last week with an extra 20 cm.
I started the day with a ground bait mix of VDE Turbo / leam 50/50 with plenty of dead maggot / hemp and corn . I had an instinct the fish would be there in force.
Set up 2 pole rigs for 10 m using 3gr and 0.15 straight thro to 16/14's. Also had 5/6m whips to fish to hand again with strong line direct to 14s.
A match is planned for this coming Sunday at the TROSA Canal on the 17th November . It will be 4 hours in duration , float only and no rods/reels allowed ( Club rules this time of year).
First fish was a handsome Bjorkna
Next put in yielded a big roach
What great weather for the time of year.
Fished from kl.10:25 to 14:50 ……. the fishing was outstanding with no shortage of bites. All the fish were of the same size , all good for just about swinging in to hand but half of them needed the respect of the landing net.
Can hardly wait for Sundays' match.
