The Big Red Carp Fishing Blog
After the good session on my friend’s lake, I decided to fish in a similar fashion; real close in stuff again. I had heard of a total monster perch being caught from this unobtrusive pool and, as you can imagine, a five pound plus perch is a real big fish indeed!
Someone once told me; sometimes you have to go backwards to progress. How true that is in my case as, for the last few years, I have really got back into my close range traditional float fishing - something I used to do all the time...and I love it.
Following on from my bait making blogs, I thought that this time I would give you a few recipes for each of the new Robin Red base mixes. The flavours that I use come from the Nutrabaits stable (unless stated) as this is where my confidence lies.
In many ways I`m very fortunate; you see, literally, one minute is all that it takes to drive from my cottage to a small but perfectly formed complex of lakes. It’s a mixed fishery with some lovely big Roach and Carp amongst the species present, including very big Goldfish.
Here we are nearing the start of a new year and I find it hard to believe that it is nearly 15 years since I first started working for John E. Haith of Cleethorpes, as it was then. Now it is simply Haith's Ltd and the old premises in Cleethorpes has been replaced by a modern corporate super-HQ and factory in Grimsby.
