Jake Anderson producing the goods out of the Thames in November,And his first Thames Fish.Have a read a give him some props for achieving this feat?..I’ll let Jake tell the story…..
Fishing the Thames is something I have wanted to do for a very long time, but due to work and other fishing I have been doing November would be the first opportunity for a Thames carp. I spoke to a friend i know who gave me a heads up on a section that doesn’t hold loads of carp but holds a few real nice ones. So I arrived on the Thursday afternoon and found a likely looking spot on the stretch. Depositing around 3kg of solar red herring 20mm boilies over 2 spots found with the marker. The first night soon crept up and I was soon into my first bream, 3 more bream for the night and it was soon daylight again, after the bream throughout the night from the rod in the deep hole, I decided not to recast any of my rods and to just add a few more baits to the spots. I didn’t bait after each bream, not because I was being lazy, but I didn’t want the bream shoal to stay put. Before knew it the light was fading away again and I was full of anticipation, even though I had only seen signs of smaller fish, the spot was full of activity. So off to bed I went, to be awoken at 7am by a hard fighting Thames, a one noter ensured I was on my rods quick time. After a long hard fought battle, 10 mins had passed and the fish finally broke the surface and I managed to bag my first Thames carp, over the moon.
