Well I’ve been working very hard lately so fishing had to take a back step for a little while, however one perk of being self employed is that I refuse to work on my birthday! So with that in mind a trip to my local lake complex (Wykeham Lakes) was in order.

We arrived nice and early and the baliff very kindly picked up some breakfast for us, to my surprise my bacon and sausage sandwich came with a birthday candle! That’s my kinda birthday cake! lol 🙂

With a full belly it was time to get started, today the main target was Trout and Pike. I’m currently suffering from a bad shoulder so fly casting is a no no so I went for the easy option of spinner for Trout and fishing shads for Pike. Well the Pike were hard work but I can’t say the same for the Trout, they were well up for spinners! I lost count at how many Trout I had takes off or landed, they provided lots of fun and with my fishing being limited I wasn’t arguing!

Later in the day I managed a few small Perch and a Pike after lots of Trout, overall as birthday fishing trips go this was a good one 🙂
