Well it started raining Tuesday evening and Joe said that if it was raining hard on Wednesday morning he wasn't bothered about getting up. As it turned out that was a good call as wednesday morning came and it rained and rained and rained all day and into the evening. Unfortunately this put a damper on proceedings and with it an end to Joes' holiday. Although the weather had been poor for the majority of his trip and we didn't catch as many fish as the week before, I do think that we did ok for quality with two 30s and 2 new pbs. Final totals for the week were as follows:
32 carp caught in 5 sessions
14 x 20lb + 7 for Dave and 7 for Joe
2 x 30's pb's of 35-4 for Dave and 32-6 for Joe
Bait tubs emptied and washed, corn in the freezer and another season passes by.
ROLL ON NEXT YEAR

Today (Monday) we decided to fish down at the power dam and what a good idea that turned out to be with seven fish over 20lbs and a new personal best for me of 35 lbs 4 oz. Joe had a back-up fish of 28.0 and we finished the day with 15 fish.
Today we went to the island view swim again, the weather was cold, wet and windy and the fish just didn't want to know. I had the only run of the day which accounted for a fish of 25 lbs 12 oz. We fished until early afternoon and then called it a day and made our way home.
We arrived at the swim at around 7pm and started fishing at 7:30 conditions were not favourable as there was a cold east wind blowing, the water level was slightly up but dropping, however between 7.30 and 11:30 am we managed to catch 8 fish. Top prize once again went to for Joe who caught another new pb this time 32 lbs 6 oz, I had a backup fish of 28 lbs 2 oz, at 11:30 the swim died and it turned very cold, it was raining so we decided to make the trip home. We won't be fishing on Friday I don't think, so the next session will be Saturday

Guess where we are heading this morning, well catching carp is why Mr Wass is over here so question was would the swim produce again??
fell to dave and weighed 26-4
Stressful game is this fishing lark, unless of course you are able to chill out, some are better at it than others
