Planning my first Shawfields trip of the season....
« on: April 13, 2017, 11:09:23 AM »

Hi all,

It's time I got back to Shawfields to try and catch a couple of it's beautiful carpy residents :-) So I shall be there this weekend at some point.

However I don't want to ignore the other fishy resident so I think I will have one rod for the carp and float fish another to see what else can be tempted from the depths. I have caught tench and roach as well as carp in the big lake.  I have also seen pike and perch.  What else with fins do we know is in there?

Cheers

Rich.

A bit of a belated catch return.........I did pop down for my first session of the year.  It was a quick session with some hastily put together float gear and maggots.  I was able to winkle out a few small roach and perch from the main lake but couldn't settle into the session as frankly I hadn't planned well (in fact not at all!).  I also found myself distracted by the lovely sunshine and dreams of sitting back in a comfy chair waiting for a buzzing alarm to herald the arrival of a beautiful Shawfields carp.

Therefore I have been back since for a spot of fish spotting and depth testing, and must now organise myself for a spot of carp/tench fishing.  Hope to meet more of you on the bank!

Regards

Richard.
