|MH Custom Lure|
So with the sun shining and the birds signing, I headed off to my local for a wander to see what was happening. The usual spots were busy with twitchers and cyclist, so I headed off to a secluded spot for some peace and quiet.
I took with me my usual medium lure gear that now taken up residency in the study for a quick escape. But there were a couple of new additions in the lure box from MH Custom Lures .
As I pulled up in the car park, the cars thermometer had risen to a heady 22 deg C. Not ideal, but a pleasant change from the rain we have been having.
The water level are very high and I glad I had the wellies on, but I could have done with some type of waders to get through the water side trees and weed beds. After looking at a couple of spot, I decided to cast a lure into the water. The first out of the box was an old favourite, the Shakespeare Midi S plug.

As it was bright and sunny, the colourful lure that i would generally use would not be very appealing, so I opted for one of the silver and black patterns.
After a dozen cast, nothing was happening, so one of the surface lure was put onto the trace to see if they pike would hit surface lure yet.
The water was alive with activity, the Common Terns were shrieking over head and a couple of Egyptian Geese were honking at each other. Thee were lost of fluffy ducklings and cootlings in scooting about the bays. I wonder how many will make it over the coming weeks.

After a short tussle, a angry jack came to my hand and was soon picked out of the water. Only about 3lb, just a lively little thing.
The jack was soon unhooked and returned. It slunk off under a sunken tree to sulk.
I wandered about for a couple of hours and had some more follows from small jacks, but they were not interested in my lures really.
Hope they are more interest come Sunday
