Catching carp in winter has a reputation for getting difficult but I think I've created methods at Vaux which turn the odds in my favour. Let me give you an example;
On Thursday, 24th November an excellent helping of mixed giant maize and wheat, cooked and prepared in bulk, were fed for the carp at Vaux more than a deep spot inside the middle of the lake where they may be generally fed in winter.
Prior to this and as much as 2nd December, this carp feeding spot couldn't be seen as it is in deep water and there had only been a modest quantity of carp faeces showing inside the lake. Carp faeces indicate what they have been feeding on; these sausage shapes, bound by a glutinous substance in order that they float, are conveniently recognisable.
Heavy rain overnight on 1st/2nd December brought a superb transform of water in to the lake from the river, which often stimulates the carp to feed whatever the time of your year it happens. On 2nd December I could see an excessive amount of carp faeces inside the lake and at about 11.30am carp began showing over the earlier week's baiting, rolling and jumping out from the water.
At about midday the air temperature was 15 and the water temperature 9, so obtaining noticed this carp activity, I quickly had 3 rods out on the deep spot.
I put out two with the rods with glaions packed with maize and wheat, the hook lengths baited with boilies greedy pig style, double 20s, and also the third rod using a pva bag filled with carp and trout pellets, plus a single boilie.
Boilies will not be my usual decision for fishing over particles;I usually use pop-up maize or actual maize on the hook length, but the boilies had been readily and speedily obtainable.
All three rods had been on semi-tight clutches, no bait runners, and I was employing my summertime rigs on each of them since they were already made up and attached; fluoro carbon Mainline 12lb, fluoro carbon leaders 2m, 4oz leads, 1 with inline and two on distance lead and clips, hook lengths were stiff boom having a short supple section attached, size 6-7 Mugga hook tied KD style (ie aggressively).
At 2.20pm each glaion rods went within seconds of one another, indicating steady takes and resulting inside a 49lb 12oz mirror plus a 48lb 10oz mirror, which had been weighed and returned towards the water.
Each rods were baited once again and place back out towards the identical spot. Different boilies were applied each time on the rods, taken from the freezer at random. At three.30pm one of the glaion rods went again, with a steady take, which resulted within a 37lb popular. I did not put that rod back out again.
At 4.10pm the remaining glaion rod went, once a lot more a steady take, once more resulting within a common at 38lb. There had been no takes on the rod with the pva bag filled with carp and trout pellets even they they may be low oil.
Despite the fact that the carp continued to roll and crash, I finished for the day at this point.
I monitor Vaux lake 365 days in the year. I monitor bait disappearing off the feeding spots by netting and checking carp faeces to assess carp feeding patterns. As I mentioned in my October News Report, 'Chas's fishing holiday', I have discovered that some carp, the huge ones, are eating only the maize and some, the smaller ones, are eating only the wheat.
Also in that report I explained my process mix making use of liquified roach and dace. I first experimented with this mix when I was fishing with an associate for huge pike last winter. I baited a set of trebles with roach deadbait which I dropped with the glaion more than an area previously baited with maize and wheat for carp, which generally shows a great deal of activity because the roach feed on this carp winter feed.
Because the glaion melts, a chum region is formed around the deadbait and disperses by way of the water even in winter because of all of the oil from the roach. We had excellent outcomes catching pike using this method, but we also noted at the time there was an enhance in the carp actively feeding on these spots exactly where the glaions had been placed, resulting in two carp becoming caught unintentionally on modest deadbaits.
Seeing how this liquified fish glaion stimulated the carp, I have been employing them in the course of my summer and winter sessions using a mixture of particle mix as well as the liquified roach, but on every single session using distinct end bait; greedy pig double boilies as explained above, on a prior session giant pop-up 35mm and 40mm pop-ups and on yet another a mixture of giant pop-up greedy pig rigs, double 20s, 30mm and 40mm pop-ups. On each and every occasion I have caught 40lb+ carp
The initial year that I fished Vaux in winter I adopted standard English tactics, applying smaller leads, scaled down hook size and modest baits, and my catches were unimpressive.
Throughout the last seven winters I've adopted different techniques and as opposed to scaling down, I essentially use bigger baits in winter, the purpose getting that Vaux has a lot of natural food coming by means of at this time of the year plus the carp are employed to feeding on massive baits including chestnuts, beech nuts, acorns and big quantities of seed coming off the compact trees lining the banks.
There have been a number of anglers more than the years who have caught carp on uncooked chestnuts and that have also substituted beech nuts, which the carp definitely appreciate, with brazil nuts and almonds, all with very good final results.
