MY LIFE settled down this week, after a mad few weeks, giving me time to do a bit of my own fishing, and nothing competition-related.
I had a trip planned to Linear Fisheries, near Oxford, and I know that the carp up there love feeding on sweetcorn and Cell boilies.
I dropped into a shop for some ‘yellow stuff’, but I didn’t need to pick up any boilies, as I already had some in my freezer. Before setting off to the venue, I blitzed a load of boilies in a grinder, covering the resulting tasty bits in Smart Liquid, before adding a load of sweetcorn.
Once at the lake, I would cover this feed in lake water, the idea being that I would be feeding ‘washed-out’ bait that looked as if it had been out in the lake for hours.
The fish in the lakes at Linear are put under a lot of angling pressure, and this bait preparation is a little edge that has worked well for me in the past.
I managed to get away from work early on Friday, which enabled me to be on the banks of Linear’s St Johns Lake by noon, where I tied up three solid PVA bags loaded with Pineapple Goo, as I wanted to try to ‘nick’ a bite.
