Långsjön; 18th July 2007

Went out to Långsjön for a few hours to check it out. The wind was extremely strong today and made fishing extremely hard and at times almost impossible as it gusted. However, the lake is very much worth a second look as it contains Tench, Carp and Crucian Carp as well as Zander, Pike, Perch and Roach. No sign of any feeding fish today though the habitat seems good in places. Not overly deep at about 6 feet around the margins. The water is coloured and seems rich with life. Expect that biggish baits will be required to help catch Carp and Tench, not that they wont take the smaller baits, but to avoid the nuisance of the numerous Roach in the lake. Despite very tough conditions still caught plenty of small Roach on sweetcorn. Switching to worm brought Perch to half a pound or so.
