Les Basses Berthieres - Very wet and very windy

Blog Post Image Blog Post Image

Cold wet and windy, but Damian and Lorraine were not put off. They bravely fished, day and night to be rewarded with 25 fish during the week. Sadly none of the big boys came out, with the largest being 26lb 11oz, although Damian did hook into a big one on his last night but unfortunatly he lost it. Says he is determined to come back as he now has unfinished business.

Etang Rendezvous - Has Winter Returned?

It was a very changeable week which saw halestones to heavy rain and then to sunshine all within about 20 mins and the rest of the week was pretty much the same. Carp-wise we had 1 x 58lb+ common, 1 x 47lb+ mirror, 2 x 40lb, 5 x 35lb+, 9 x 30lb+, 13 x 25lb+, 21 x 20lb+ and 14 x 15lb+. Cat-wise, the best cat out was 104lb followed by a 86lb, 65lb, 58lb, 55lb and 28lb. The grand total for the week was 2,120lb. A different approach was taken, as the anglers were fishing with boilies only at medium range. Water temp was 16C and the fish seemed to be following the wind.

w/c 31 March 2012

There were four anglers on this week who had the following catches;

Carp - 1x45+, 9x40+, 10x35+, 23x30+, 24x25+, 41x20+ and 35x15+.

Cats - 1x109lb, 1x104lb, 1x101lb, 1x72lbx 1x53lb and 1x25lb.

There was a grand total of 4,404lb of fish of which 2,001lb was caught by just one angler, Daren.

All in all another blinding week, although there were no 50lbers.

The weather conditions were sunny during the day but with a continual north-easterly wind which made it very cold at night. The water temperature varied between 14-16 degrees.

Birch Pool Retreat - New lake record 51lb Mirror

It was with such delight that we received a phone call last night from Claire to say that Jamie had caught a really big fish. On arrival at the lake we were greeted by much excitement and when we saw the fish we could understand why, the question was would it make the magical 50lb mark ?

Imagine how pleased we were to see the scales finally stop at 51lbs, we knew there were fish over 50 but to have it finally confirmed was amazing.

The fish was caught near to the rock on a critically balanced Alphabaits Monster Crab boillie.

A very well done to Jamie & Claire on a fantastic result and as Jamie turns 30 on Monday what an early Birthday present
