Due to a late cancellation from one of our regular groups we have nobody on this week as we had no time to resale the week, these things sometimes can’t be helped but it gave me chance to fish as believe it or not I’ve never had chance to fish the lake in May before as we’ve always been booked. Ok so I done 3 nights in total, baiting up during the day & fishing the nights only, not only does this give me chance to get some work done around the grounds but it gives the fish chance to come in for a free feed with no pressure or lines in the water. This should hopefully make them earlier to catch during the night & early morning. I was boilie fishing only putting out 2.5kg each day of our own EDL boilie bottom baits over 3 rods in a wide spread using the throwing stick & fishing a hinged stiff rig over the top. I managed 4 fish to 46.4lb “The Gold Star Common” a fish which was on my target list as one of the A Team I really wanted to catch !!
W/C 6th April where our 3 yearly repeat anglers managed 11 fish to 47lb, a fish called Two Tone at a new top weight which was also a new p.b for Matt. All fish came out on our EDL boilies washed out & tipped with half of a yellow mainline pineapple juice pop up. The guys used their baitboats with just a handful of freebies to accurately place their traps on the spots. Well done guys, we’re looking forward to seeing you all again in 2020!
Merry Christmas & Happy new year to all our customers, past , present & future. A big thank you to all who came to visit us during 2018, we’re very much looking forward to our 2019 season where along with our regular yearly visitors we will be seeing some more new faces. Remember that we are now taking bookings for 2020 incase there is a particular week you would like. We hope you all have a great time over the Christmas holidays, be safe & we will post again in the new year.
So I managed to get on the bank for a couple of nights which was nice, this was actually the first time I’d fished since July 2017 believe it or not. I decided to only fish during the night & managed 4 bites in total with the biggest being a fish called the CC at a new top weight of 35lb. All fish came on our EDL Banoffee single bottom baits on k.d rigs with size 4 curve shank hooks on a running lead clip set up. I didn’t really make it easy for myself either because at this time of year I’m feeding the fish heavily so they had plenty of grab out there to keep them happy.
