This was a special Valentines day present from Scott’s partner Jane. The wonderful Decoy Lakes near Whittlesey in Cambridgeshire was the chosen venue. Diane the owner had kindly allowed keepnets.

It was a warm overcast summer morning with a light westerly wind. Elm lake was free, so I decided we would fish there.

Pole was the chosen method cupping in a big pot of hard feed carp pellets at 10 mts and then loose feeding some 4mm pellets over the top. It only took about 5 minutes and Scott was into his first fish, and that’s how the day continued with fish after fish coming to the net. It was an all action day. A short session up in the water and also in the margins was OK but never as good as the 10 mts line. By 2pm Scott had reached his net limit and was returning fish as he caught them.

We left the bank at about 4pm, Scott having had a brilliant day catching close to 150lbs.
