  • my day at eye ketteby fishery

    every other week i shall be visting a new venue within a 60min traveling time from my home in eastwood,nottingham.
    today i went to Eye Kettleby, Melton Mowbray.
    today it took me 57mins from eastood,not a bad drive fairly straight forward run.
    ok decided on fishing lake one got setup and decided to fish straight to the ireland under some overhanging tree's, the bait im using for my hook was 4mm van de hyde expanders.
    within 5mins i hooked into a carp it went straight into the bushes but i manged to pull the carp out after about 5mins all was over and netted my first carp of the day aprrox wieght around 4lb(left my scales at home )
    so then the day went on with a few more carp averaging around 4-5lb.
    Now i started getting into the cruican carp, believe it or not i have never caught a cruican before,and what can i say what a lovely fish they are,they do tend to fight different to other carp more a tug tug affect like when you hooked a perch.
    i manged to get quite a few of these little carp and as the day went on i was gettting one a chuck. had a few more bonus carp as well in between.
    well to end my blog the balliff was telling me that not much was happing on the other lakes and as we where chatting he said that i am fishing the hardest lake of them all,well chuffed he was knowing i was bagging up all day and so was i knowing this lake was a tricky one to fish.
    very good day out would recommend it to anyone.
