Dangling with Deano

Spring and autumn are my two favourite times of the year and I always try to head over to the continent during both periods to set up the Tempest and get the carp sticks out. I normally like to try new places but over the last couple of seasons I've stuck to Lac De Premiere for my spring trips. It's always been kind to me on the bite front but up until this trip, I seem to have done a grand job of avoiding many of the larger residents. Time I thought to change that stat. I don't often get a full week at a venue these days and this was no different but 5 nights is long enough to  really feel like your in with a chance of picking off one or two of the better fish. 

The weather was far from ideal, with cold changeable winds and heavy rain for the most part with the odd bit of clear sky, which brought with it a sudden and massive drop in temperature.My good friend Ray Rutted and I hit the ground running on arrival with 6 fish in the first night to 47lb! Awesome! But to be honest, I was hurting from a long weeks work and could have done with a good 7 hours of zzzzz's! Not that I'm complaining.The action continued throughout the week with regular night and morning bites with some units thrown in. In total we had 13 fish each with us both notching up a 50lber each.

All my bites came on Mainline IB Wafters over crumbed Cell, Cell Response Pellet, Corn, Hinders Hemp and Elips pellets. Rig wise I never complicate things home or abroard with a size 4 wide gape, 20lb n trap soft to a hybrid lead clip safe zone leader and a 4oz distance lead.  The key to getting regular bites in tough conditions like the ones we were faced with was to fish for a bite at at time and not fill it in at the start and sit on it. Keep the swim alive with small regular top ups and they will soon be investigating the area.
