Common carp caught at the Holiday Inn Lake

The Secret To Winter Carping Is To Keep Moving!

Monday 29 January 2018

​We had yet another forty eight hours of rain this weekend... I'm beginning to ask myself, will I actually ever get to fish the river again this winter?! So with piking definitely off the cards I headed out to the Holiday Inn lake (I know, again...) to see if I could tempt a carp or two.

Back At The Holiday Inn Lake... Again!

Monday 22 January 2018

​After 48 hours of solid rain over the weekend the river just wasn't an option and although I'd love a pike session it looked like hitting a lake would be the only option to get a bend in the rod... So another session at the Holiday Inn Lake? Oh go on then!

After such an excellent session on Monday at The Holiday Inn Lake, I couldn't wait to get back on the bank to try and bag some winter carp.

A New Venue - Carp Fishing At The Holiday Inn Lake

Monday 15 January 2018

I've not been carp fishing for ages now, the main winter focus being pike. But after my last incredibly muddy session on the Avon, I was craving something different... And as I've joined a new club with lakes closer to home the time was right for a water pig session!

1st Pike Session Of 2018 - And It's Not A Blank!

Friday 12 January 2018

Good golly it's been a grim end and start to the year... Snow, rain, a continuously flooded or muddy river and illness has all meant I've not been out fishing since mid December... But today the conditions actually looked pretty good so I headed out to the River Avon at Keynsham to see if the pike were in a hungry mood.
