It was very cold in the mornings and the temperature dropped quite a bit by the end of the day, but in-between the air temperature varied from 16°c to 19°c. The water temperature was 18°c.

Poppy's Lake - Poppy's Lake now ready and waiting.

 New swims are being built on Poppy's lake as I write and the fish have been enjoying peaceful feeding all over the winter. We continue to feed the lake several times a week and the carp are coming along nicely and test fishing last week produced plenty of carp up to the mid 20's. No monsters yet but as a runs water this lovely little lake will take some beating with a huge stock of hard fighting young fish. For the self catering angler there will be a huge 'Amercian style' gas bbq and covered eating area for your use.

Be sure to check out the website at - poppyslake.weebly.com for more information.

Le Moulin du Mee - Great start to 2014 at Le Moulin du Mee

Blog Post Image Blog Post Image Blog Post Image Blog Post Image

 The warm early spring has certainly impacted on the fishing here at Le Moulin du Mee where big fish have been coming out on a regular basis and although overall numbers are lower than we would have expected this has been more than compensated by the sheer size of the fish banked. As I write we have had 5 x 60's (best 69lb 8oz) and 16 x 50's banked (5 over 59lb) with the remainder of the 54 carp total being generally above 40lb. Yesterday we had a ten year old lad (Zac) bank his second 50 at 59lb and the sheer delight on the lads face was a real delight to see. The fish are all in stunning condition and are showing the steady year on year weight gains that previous years have shown. It is fair to say that the fishing whilst not exactly hard has still been far from easy with the fish holding up in small pockets rather than spreading around the lake. We are expecting a very early spawning this year and have already had males shedding milt on the mat. Strangely the smaller fish (30's and low 40's) are showing all the signs of holding good amounts of spawn but the big girls are still some way off showing the pre-spawning weight gains so some exciting fish could well be banked in the next couple of weeks. Full details, as ever, are on our blog at - carpdreams.wordpress.com
