I started by fishing shallow at 11m with 6mm pellets and managed to catch a few in the first hour but then could not buy a bite for a while so decided to try something else.
I tried the pellet waggler for a while after feeding it whilst fishing the pole shallow but this was just not working, we could see plenty of carp cruising around but they just were not really interested in feeding it seemed.
In between my switch from pole to waggler, I potted in a few cups full of groundbait, dead maggots and casters in my left margin, after a few minutes I could see carp tails all over the fed area so I left them for a short time before fishing for them.
After trying the waggler for a while with no luck, I started fishing the left margin. The fish really were in a strange mood, even when I could see tails in the area, a hook bait would not get touched for some time but I did manage to catch one every now and then. I also started loose feeding casters in the right margin and managed to catch a few here by fishing caster off the bottom.
As the scales came round, I guessed I might have 30lb but probably less and for a change I had guessed quite accurately as I weighed in 29lb 4oz which as it turned out was good enough for 4th from the 25 taking part.
