Etang Rendezvous - w/c 15 September 2012

The weather took more of a downturn this week and the water temperature dropped from 20c to 17c.

The total weight of fish caught this week was 576lb which comprised the following;

Carp – the best catch of the week was a 54lb common, and the rest were 3x15lb+, 4x20lb+, 2x25lb+, 2x30lb+ and 1x35lb+

Cats – the best cat of the week weighed in at 95lb, and the rest were 57lb, 37lb, 27lb and 20lb

There were also a couple of pike caught this week weighing in at 10lb and 5lb.

Unfortunately there were also quite a lot of nuisance fish (over 100). I believe this week was the second worse week of the year.

The Retreat - 'Could want for nothing' at The Retreat

New guests for 2012, Lynne and Tony Rogers gave the feedback that they 'could want for nothing' following their stay at The Retreat last week. Despite the hot weather and not fishing nights and limited daytimes , Tony still managed to catch some good fish, the best being a 21lb common. Lynne reported having had a wonderful time and really enjoyed the massage treatment by owner and Beauty Therapist, Caroline who provides professional beauty spa treatments for all the 'angling widows' and lady anglers alike. Planning to come back again soon.
