Thursday costcutter viaduct fishery

Travelled down with Joe McMahon today, and after a nice breakfast at the junction cafe it was off to the fishery, a good turnout with 34 in attendance, split between Campbell and lodge , not on Cary as its a bit o it of sorts at the mo, but it is nearly back to as it was.
As normal quite early into the draw tin, and out comes 66 on lodge , another corner , I'm thinking of changing my name to little Jack, its a nice peg with lots of form and history, there are lots of overhanging tree's to the left which always hold fish, but it can be a bit torrid getting them out as there is also an old peg under the tree's that can be a bit expensive on end tackle if your not quick.
So I set up a rig to fish pellet under the tree's, a margin meat rig for my left as you can't fish to the right as there is a big bush tight to the peg, a deep and shallow rig for pellet at 14 mtrs , the same two rigs would do to fish to the end of the tree's at 13 mtrs, job done then.
On the all in I began on the deck at 14 mtrs , but a couple of liners had me reaching for the shallow rig, but 20 minutes later and no bites , I switched to shallow out on the end of the tree's, I soon had a carp swiftly followed by another, then it went a bit wrong with the next couple doing me right in under the tree's, so the next port of call was to go into the tunnel of branches under the tree's, I had a couple of quick fish then liners and foulers became a problem, , I was landing odd fish but wasn't catching quick enough, also the fish were on the small side, 3 to 5lb , not the big single or low doubles you normally get on this lake,
I stuck with it but it was nth going to plan, I did get one carp and a tench down the edge, but the whole lake as far as I could see was proving difficult, I did have a good last two hours fishing out on the end of the tree's, first on the deck , then shallow, I finished the match well, but the fish in the peg today were definitely on the small side so I reckoned on having at least 120 lb, only a bit o it as I had 137.12.
