Hello again, Well I've been having a good winter on the Tarn and the Gulp! Squid and liver seems to be doing the job. I got down the Tarn the other week early morning and it was cold and frosty and the sun was just pushing up. Finding the beach was free and after having a few fish from that area recently I was straight in there. I flicked a couple of single squid and liver hook baits tipped with a piece of pink plastic corn out and was soon set up making the most of the wi...

Well it’s been 7 weeks since I last managed a session, I’ve been keeping the bait going in steady not a lot just enough to keep them interested I hope. Had some of the Tuna Spice in 16mm delivered at the end of Jan so I’ve been feeding that into the lake. Went over Sunday evening to put in a few freebies, ready for my 2 night session Monday, Tuesday. There had been a few fish out to 23lb over the weekend so it was looking good, temps had not really dipped to low either. I arr...

Since my last Blog I have blanked on two occasions the conditions being very hard of late . It’s either raining or freezing still I guess that has been the case for most of us of late . At least the sun is out on my arrival at the lake this morning, guaranteed to catch some sun if no fish. Selecting a swim where providing the sun stay out I will have the sun with me all day, hopefully . The margins are in the region of 5ft deep on the self-dropping down to 11ft or more where ...

Hi, it’s been a while since my last blog. The weathers been really bad recently with constant flooding of the River Ouse that runs along side the lake I fish. The water is so high that most of the swims I like are unfishable. Work commitments have also taken their toll but I expect that’s the same for all of us. So, Saturday 23rd of February was looking good for an overnight session. And you can imagine my disappointment as the weather forecast slowly got worse during the we...

Winter carp fishing.....Ryan Brown

Winter is often seen as a hard time of the year to catch carp and it can be if you go in with the wrong approach and tactics. A couple of years ago I didn’t see the attraction in winter fishing. Shorter, cold days and freezing nights plus the bigger chance of blanking all lessened the appeal. But now I am hooked on it, lovely dark fish that are at a good weight, and the chance of a nail biting fight. But the thing that has given me all the success over the winter is the ‘Hi-V...

Following the recent festive period mixed amongst hours of revision and nagging from mom for January exams my fishing time has been somewhat limited. Despite this I managed to sneak a couple of day sessions to my syndicate water the Sitch, however its depth is shallow with few areas of the lake in excess of 4ft deep, this makes the fish somewhat tricky to tempt when combined with the large expanse of water the Carp have to roam. Shortly before my sessions I ordered a variety...

Sat 16th Feb Finally get down the lake after a very busy winter due to work commitments. Didn’t wake until about 06:45 due to not finishing work until 01:00. Luckily the lake is on my door step and it takes no less than 2 minutes to walk there. I arrive down the lake and notice a few other anglers. I had a look around for a short time; I then decided to jump in to a swim which I know the carp frequent due to it holding a lot of natural food. The lake is calm and I’m finally...

From Carp to Marlin......How about this as your first Blue Marlin? A fish of 1320lb caught off Ascension on the 18th of February. The angler was Berkley Gulp bait tester Kevin Gardner....Fight time was 3hrs and the fish was in bad condition at the boat so it was taken in and weighed. Great fish well done to the team of Captain Olaf Grimkowski and Phil Riley aboard the Harmattan. For good measure Kevin also caught a 234lb Big Eye Tuna. and released a Six Gill shark...
