Had a weekend social fishing with a couple of mates we decided on fishing a local lake to us, I arrived at the lake after dark decided to set up in the middle of the lake so if I saw or heard anything then I could move on to them. I decide to put a rod out on a pop up over a baited area and another on a zig fished in middle water. Around 8pm I started getting liners and around half 8 I received a take on the zig sprayed with esta stray after a short battle a 16lb 7oz common was laying in the net, got the rod back out around 10pm I received another take on the zig sprayed with esta spray after a 10 minute battle I had another common laying in the net I could see it was bigger, we lifted it up on the scales and it went 22lb 5oz I was happy with that as the lake has only done a handful of bites in 5 weeks
