"Get Hooked on New York"

Cold Day, New Year Details
Name:Cold Day, New Year
Created By:bedlem
Details:My first trip of 2010. I wanted to get out earlier but I will be honest..the warmth of my apartment got the better of me. It was hard trying to tear myself away from the computer and hit the banks.

Got my new bivvy though and that was motivation enough to get outside. In the winter I am predictable. I hit the few spots I know that will produce fish, or have at least produced in years prior. This puts me at the bend in the river in Uxbridge quite a lot. Ease of access unfrozen water and of course lots of carp ranging from 5-26+ pounds.

When I arrived I took a moment to figure the wind out, then scouted a small grove of trees to angle the bivvy near. Staking anything into the ground is pretty much out fo the question, so having a good set of trees to attach to was key. Of course having the bivvy actually block the wind instead of facing it was important as well.

Once that was out of the way I tossed the grill on to get coffee started and set about getting my rods in the water. Normally I would do this first but it was cold and I really wanted the shelter up quickly.

Today I went with the standard bait set. A few DAT food flavors, some sweet corn, night crawlers, a dough/paste and some ground bait.

The first few hours saw me settle in, have some cup o noodles, drink some coffee, half doze off. In other words, it was slow going. I started thinking to myself;

"Maybe I'll make this a short day."

The right pole, twitched. The twitch became a bend, signaling me to quit thinking about home and start catching that fish!
