I set up to fish at 5m to the lillies and a line further out at 9m but still near the lilly pads. I also set up a light waggler rod to try corn futher out in the open water.
I started by feeding 2 balls of groundabait and micros at 9m and one small ball and some magots at 5m.
Starting on the 5m line with maggot on the hook I was a bit disappointed to find myself struggling to get a bite.
I started loose feeding maggots hoping this would help, there were a few small Roach in the upper layers taking the slow falling bait then I caught a nice Crucian.
Both lines were not producing much so I had a go with the waggler as I had been pinging out a few grains of corn since the start but this produced no bites.
I alternated between the 2 pole lines and tried a few casts of the waggler now and then just picking up odd bites mainly on the 5m line with a strung out rig including two more Crucians and a couple of nice big Roach.
I did try for a Carp to the reeds on my left in the last 30 minutes but could not get a bite.
My coulourful net of silvers went 8lb 4oz, this was 18th of 29 fishing so must try harder!
