It’s been a long time since Chris was last here…… about 12 years!!!!!
Well he’s only here for a bit of a chill and dangle a line ….so was a good opportunity to try out the new bait for this year being Blue Mussel…. from Northern Baits.
So we baited up with just a couple of kg of Blue Mussel and about 4kg of cooked maize …… the river is in flood at the moment so we were fishing just in the margins 2 rod lengths out . An hour past with not a touch when the rod nearly got ripped from out of the rest. Poor Chris who hasn’t fished for a good few years only wanted a carp or two but hooked in a real Steam Train. Half an hour later!!! a real scrap and a Great Start to this year with a 112lb cat and a great start using the new bait Blue Mussel snowman doing the damage.
