Bream for the blackness

After deciding to give the perch on the cut a break, I focused my attention on the bream that I have heard come out to feed once the boats have stopped moving. With this in mind I ventured to the canal.
I arrived at about 7 with my attention being to feed the swim before 8 when the boats should have stooped moving. I soaked up some 2mm fish meal pellets and added some hemp and a few casters. I was convinced I had made a good job of this and by 8 I thought my prebaiting was safe for the evening, so I added starlight s to my pole floats and settled in for the sun to go down. I had set up two rods both with very similar rigs, centre pins and float rods with pole floats on. My aim was to fish bread punch over the baited area lying on by about 3 inches to prevent tow.

As I felt settled I could not believe it when a bloody boat appeared at about 8.30, as far as was aware boats have an 8 o'clock curfew on their motors??? Not only did it appear it turned around over my prebaited area......all good plans and all! I did make very obvious glances at my watch to the boat people...but not even a simple sorry! In last few weeks I have witnessed some very intersting acts by narrow boat users, including tipping the contents of thier wood burner (ash etc) straight into the canal, throwing their washing up water in, and one of the very best urinating directly in to the canal....

Anyway rant over, After the canal had settles I introduced a small amount of feed an sat it out. I was very pleased when my starlight bobbed then sank away and I was into a fish. I have never fished at night before and found it very interesting fighting a fish in the dark. A nice looking bream surfaced and was soon in the net. A fish of 2lb 14oz.

It took a while before it happen again, this tome the fish ripped line from my pin....interesting! After a very spirited fight a larger bream surfaced, I really did not think it was bream to be honest. These fish fight so much more than the ones that are in still waters. This fish scaled 4lb 10oz...a nice fish for the cut!

The next bite came almost straight away, again taking line I was into another better fish. a differetn looking bream, in fact it was almost green. Though a bit bashed up it was still a nice fish. Scaling 3lb 15oz.

I finished fishing at 10.45 and was happy to have bagged 3 fish for over 10lbs. The one thing that I did notice was their tails, an commericals the bream tails are alot smaller than these!

Will definately try this again, I really enjoyed the different sounds from the canal in the dark.

  1. If the Trx Suspension Online package is all rugged and out of shape, regardless of how much of a treasure the inside is, no one will be interested.
    Some of these Cheap Trx will come with the product for free but if high quality package has to be done like in wholesale, the buyer has to compensate for the extra packaging.
    It seems that among the consistently hottest sellers from this TRX Suspension Training Sale line is the Highrise.
    High quality packaging of Cheap TRX, watches, earrings and other help protect them from getting dust or moisture from the environment.
    When people see a buyer carrying a bag with the TRX suspension trainer of the company, they will definitely get attracted and pulled towards with an urge to get the same.
    trx exercises also enhances flexibility in transport.
    If the Trx Workouts has a good shape, it will be much manageable to transport and distribute.
    This is highly paid much to details because the TRX Workouts Sale company has stores all over the world and a slight mistake can end up destroying the whole collection.
    In today's world, nothing without a trx straps sale package has the ability to sell including an eraser.
    Simple though very important thing to consider is that the cheap trx package is not only aimed at preserving, but to get the attention of the target market.
