End of Jan I went for the first trip of the year to a local water which fishes well in winter and i know well so I use for testing new baits and rigs etc.
Also a lake where a night bite is rare so you can get some good sleep.
Turn up at almost dusk so setup camp as there for 48 hours and after dark finally the rods and did a random pub chuck with all three rods with just a single wafter sweetcorn wafter on one rod and my normal wafter bait on the other two so i could cook dinner and setup for the morning.
That night I had 6 carp 10 to 22lb all on the sweetcorn wafter
The next day swapped my normal wafters over for the sweetcorn bolies and the day turned into mayhem
The next night I had 20 carp to 30lb (the biggest in this lake)
All in all when I thought for 48 hours at this water 10-12 mid teen carp would be a good haul i ended up with 100+ carp which while most where in the 10 to 19lb bracket pretty much all the older bigger carp added to the bag.
Now I am going to have to go and try a few of the other flavors out
