The Retreat - Lake Record at The Retreat

Congratulations to Mike& Craig Shepherd who visited The Retreat the last week in April and caught the lake record Common at 41lbs, commenting that it was the strongest fighting fish they had ever caught! Strageties which helped were fishing from margins using a bait boat with high beds of bait. Hook link to boilie and popup imitation sweetcorn, bait bed of pellet, sweetcorn and boilies.

Mike and Craig commented that the Gite and Lake can only be described as excellent. Pat and Philip were exceptional hosts and made our stay very comfortable and welcome.We will recommend to friends and family without hesitation.
