Everything I tried just didn't work well, even though I lost two other decent fish during a long frustrating day. A match forced me onto the smaller lake and I think that put some doubt in my mind sadly.

I was lucky to see the potential of this lake on this last trip. The weather got onto the 30s and the whole carp population of the lake seemed to be on the surface. It was an amazing sight, hundreds of fish, some, many doubles. More than I suspected, or imagined.
See you on the bank.
