Blanktastic Day at Beacon View

Met Beef at Beacon View at 6.45 this morning. High expectations again for this fishery. The last time we were there it was bitterly cold. The weather today was mild and a lot warmer. The Carp are definitely waking up. However I've said this before and I'll say it again. Beacon View can be a hard water to fish, this is mainly due to how much pressure this water receives. The lake is not too big and gets hammered at weekends, mostly by people targeting the Sturgeon and chucking copious amounts of bait into the water. Packed up at 14.30 as I had to pick Ellie up from school. Needless to say I didn't catch today. Beef managed a Skimmer Bream to about 1lb. A poor showing for 7 and a half hours fishing.

Part Two
Arranged to meet Beef at Sollom for a quick lure session. The night was drawing in very fast we had about an hour and half. The only action came when Beef had one follow. Alas we both blanked but now the nights are getting lighter, I'm sure this was the first of many night sessions on our lures.
