Get your timing right this winter and catch more

For the Carp and big Bream winter angler.

A couple of weeks ago, I was once again fishing Hemingford Grey. A local guy was sitting having a coffee with me.  At 6:00pm, I looked at the time and said “nearly time for the first bite of the evening, I am going to recast with fresh bait and a fresh PVA bag.” At 6:25, my indicator slammed to the top producing the first carp of the session. The guys reaction was interesting to the point where he seemed rather put out. When I asked him about this, his response was “how could you have known that!”  It is worth remembering that this venue is notoriously difficult and bites, let alone fish are at a premium, so I kinda get his reaction.

Plan your winter Carp campaign now and reap the rewards.

Plan your winter Carp campaign now and reap the rewards.

If you’re like me, you’ll still be enjoying the last ounces this late summer has to offer.  However, as sad as it is to talk about sub-zero temperatures, if you want to carry on catching during the Autumn and on into the Winter, then you’d best start planning now. With the winds consistently blowing from the north or east, the fish will be on the move, heading towards deeper, wind free areas of your chosen venue.  The more effort you put in now, the better your catch rate will be when the frosts do start to bite.

Hemingford Grey

Ground-baits – Spod mixes – Particle mixes

I’ve decided to spilt feed-baits and hook-baits into two separate features due to the vast choices available. However, as I work my way through, I will suggest hook-baits that work well with certain feed-baits and so on.

In this section, I will look at items individually such as hemp, maize, bread-crumb, fish-meals, pellets, and  then take a closer look at combining these together to produce the ultimate attractors.

Wind Direction: This will play a significant factor in fish location. I have used the four most common wind directions as a guide. See maps for a guide to where the fish will hold up for each wind direction. However, please remember, this is only a guide and each venue will vary slightly. Also, as we know well, carp in particular often do the unexpected, keep your eyes peeled and always be prepared to recast, or move if necessary.
