the cold cut

Postby plasticpaddy » Mon Mar 24, 2008 7:08 pm

decided to blow the cob webs off my course gear the savvy and head down the local cut in maghull, dug a few worm out the garden and took some liquidised bread out the freezer, first 2 stops at the canal were a no go due to the winds :evil: so i opted for a short covered section known as little shop lane :D


fished 2 bread swims down the track and a worm swim at the bottom of the far shelf, was straight into small roach averaging 2 to 3oz after bout 30 mins fed again and started getting a better stamp of fish with a few hybrids among them but after about an hour the bread swims died so went on the worm line, after flogging that for an hour with nothing to show i went back on the bread with the only difference being i scaled down to a no 2 elastic and 24 hooks after a few more small roach, i decided to fish the small punch (3mm) over depth by about 6inch which resulted in a bream about 2lb :D after that i tried the heavier rig well i say heavier 0.8 bottom and 18 hook :lol: but no joy, so scaled down again and added another 4 bream by this time the wind was getting up and was struggling to hold the pole so called it a day, very enjoyable though :smile: :smile: :smile:

at the end of the day it's night
