This was a special 38th birthday present from Andrew’s mum Brenda and dad John. The wonderful Westwood lakes near Boston in Lincolnshire was the chosen venue.

It was a really cold frosty spring morning with moderate north easterly wind. Hawk lake had been producing some fish despite the really low water temperatures so we decided to fish there.

Pole was the chosen method, one swim in the deep water at about 10 mts plus one just going up the far shelf with another in the real shallow water tight to the far bank.

Loose feeding red maggots on the far 2 swims with double red maggot on the hook soon produced some big ide. The deep line was fed with small balls of groundbait, packed with chopped worms and maggots plus some well soaked 2mm carp pellets, switching between the 3 lines kept the fish coming in the really difficult conditions with carp, F1’s and even a barbel coming from the deep water.

We left the bank at about 4pm Andrew having caught over 50lbs of fish a brilliant weight on a really tough day.
