effort equals reward

Hi, welcome to my first blog here for the Danglers Nation Team, my name is Lee Moore and I'm the founder and owner of the Norfolk bait company BIG FISH BAITS. As you can imagine, being the owner of a very successful bait company leaves me very little time to get myself away from the day to day running of things and got some of my own fishing in, especially from March until November, this previous year has been no different! over the last year however we have been putting the final touches to our newest bait #MILK #ONE, with Xmas and the new year fast approaching I knew that for me my chance to get some bank time was coming! We'd just gone into the new year and a window of opportunity had come my way, with fresh #MILK #ONE out of the freezer defrosting and a pot of each white and pink 12mm #MILK #ONE pop ups put in my rucksack the car was loaded and I was on my way to meet a good friend of mine at his local lake, some 20plus miles away, when I arrived it was still dark, I done a couple of laps and didn't see or hear a thing, even though the sun was starting to break through, the swim I decided to fish was fairly central with a large reed bed out in front, after a few casts I had all 3 rod's bang on the money, although I'm a big believer in "my carpy feeling" this just didn't feel right at all to me! I gave it till just after 11am and nothing happened, I made a quick phone call to another bailiff of another lake and found out only one other angler was on, result! Gear packed away in double quick time and I was off! By now it was getting on for midday, I knew I only had till around 4 in the afternoon due to family commitments, I had a good idea where I thought the fish would be, so got round to the area quick smart! Three fresh white pop ups were tied on to my favoured stiff hinged rig and quickly put into position, after about 15 minutes a couple of other anglers wondered round, they'd had nothing in 72 hours....oh I thought! I needed not worry though as literally at that point the middle rod pulled up tight and I was in! After a hairy battle I finally slipped a pretty mirror over the net, result! After a quick weight, 17+lb was recorded, not bad I thought, rod back on the spot, a few more baits out and I settled down again, this time the right hand rod tore off! Again after another good battle I slipped the net under the second fish of my session, this time a lovely scale perfect common! Time was getting on but to be honest I was pretty happy with 2 fish in a couple of hours from a lake that hadn't done a fish for a good couple of weeks, I started packing a few bits away when the middle rod was away again, this time the fish went straight for the snags I was fishing tight too, with plenty of side strain I managed to keep her away and guided her into the net, upon lifting the net I could tell this mirror was a bit bigger than the previous two fish, up on the scales a weight of 18+lb, very nice! No monsters by any stretch of the imagination but 3 fish in less than 4 hours was certainly well needed, proof as they say, a few hours in the right place is better than days in the wrong place, I'm 100% certain that our new bait #MILK #ONE played a massive part in also putting those fish on the bank due to its very milky creamy make up and great attractor and feed stimulators
