Manor Farm Leisure - Island pool

  • Peg 6
  • 52lb 10oz
  • 1st place
  • 16 fished

After some friendly banter with me and Shaun Little about drawing flyers, and stating peg 6 was the peg to be, I was lucky enough to draw it, maybe a birthday present?! So I took so abuse for drawing the best peg on the lake.

After a load of rain yesterday, the lake fished really hard, by Manor Farm's standards.

I caught one F1 after 1 hour, after 2.5 hours I had 10lb. I was worried that I had messed this up badly.
The next 2.5 hours saw me catch 5 carp for 42lb and lost 2 big fish. I fished tight to the far bank with smelly meat and a little PVA bag. I should of done it sooner, but chucked the lead around the peg looking for liners and signs of fish. Which didn't really happen. Didn't get any liners even when I fished tight against the Island... fish aren't moving, but there was a few fish topping around the lake... so figure that out?!

I should of caught a lot more, I should of realised that bites were taking a long time to come, up to 50 minutes!  Sometimes it's best to chuck and ith 100lb! 
I had an enjoyable few hours, caught 5 on the bomb and bread and had 12 fish on the pole. The last couple of hours was really tough. After 1.30pm i should of gone to the pub, as i didn't catchleave it, I find this difficult as I ith 100lb!
