Just a bit of pleasure

Happy New year to you all,
New year's day and a spare few hours so it would be rude not to get a few hours in on the bank, so after a 4.25 brekkie in the Toby inn in whitchurch Judith and me headed down to Landsend fishery, hoping it wasn't going to be to busy as I fancied having a go at the top end of the match lake, especially as it would be out of the wind, we got to the Carpark and was greeted by one van, which belonged to Rob watts, who luckily was sat on 21, so trolley loaded and we headed up to peg 14. Only a couple of rigs, one to fish maggot at just over half depth all round the peg, without feeding , and another for hard pellet on the deck slightly to the left at 13 mtrs. Shipped out with triple maggot lowered the rig in, turn round to talk to judith, looked back and no float, lol, first carp then, only about 4lb, but welcome,

 It didn't take long to get another one, to be fair I half expected it as this end of the lake has been the area to draw, and the best approach has been just dobbing maggot around at various depths except on the deck,
I let Judith have a go and she soon had a couple including the biggest fish of the session of about 8lb, not that she enjoyed it, as her face shows, bragging rights again !!!!.
So after that I chucked her off the box , had another 7 carp , 5 on maggot and two on the deck on hard pellet, along with a couple of decent skimmers, a nice hybrid and an unseasonal tench, so not a bad short session,

Off to Todber on Saturday as I have managed to guest in the last of the silvers league, then back to Landsend on Sunday for round two of the winter  league, I'm on the match lake so a nice draw please, top end would be nice, but with the wind going easterly the early pegs may be a bit more sheltered so who really knows.
