We arrived at the lake just as it was starting to get dark and after a quick walk round we found a good number of fish moving on the very edge of a large raft of weed which occupied 50%of the lake. The weed was right up to the surface but along the edge it dropped to about 3 feet below. We fished Choddies with 1oz leads onto the weed shelf with 15mm Coconut Crème hook baits, and a light scattering of freebies along the shelf and amongst the weed. As it got dark and throughout the night the fish became far less active. However, as expected, the fish moved back into the area in the early hours of the morning and we were rewarded with two stunning fish.
