Hooked in France - NEW SEASON STARTS

OUR FIRST 2 WEEKS HAS SEEN 50 FISH BANKED INCLUDING OUR FIRST 50LB CARP, PLUS 48LB , 44LB. WHEN YOU THINK THAT THE FIRST WEEK THE LADS COULD ONLY DO 3 DAYS ITS NOT A BAD START, THE LAKE IS JUST STARTING TO BLOOM WITH TREE'S BUDDING AND THE REEDS GROWING FAST, IT SHOULD'NT BE LONG  BEFORE IT IS LOOKING GREAT AGAIN.

THE FISH ARE CRASHING ALL OVER THE LAKE, THE PIKE ARE SPAWNING, WATER LEVEL IS HIGH AND ALL IN ALL I THINK IT WILL BE A GOOD YEAR.

Hooked in France - NEW SEASON

 

After weeks of backbreaking work around the lake(its an easy life running a fishery),cutting back banks,reeds,tree's,brambles,tidying up the swims,fitting new weigh posts,putting 5 tonnes of siltex in the lake,raking leaves from the lake bed,our first guests arrived

After just 1hr after setting up the first fish of the year was banked,a cracking 22lb mirror,not one of the bigger fish but a good quick start,and as i write this one of the lads has told me he just lost another one ?

So hopefully they will have a good 4days(they could'nt get longer off work),lots of fish moving about at the moment,can't wait for our big common (oddscale) to make an appearance this year,if she has put on her usual 5/6lbs per year she should break the 60lb barrier at around 62lb fingers crossed,and win win the captor a fully inclusive fishing holiday for 2 people plus a bottle of bubbly 

SO HERE IS TO A SUCCESSFUL 2012

Hooked in France - Fish Health

As part of our ongoing fish health programme, every fish caught in march and april will be injected with a powerfull antibiotic called baytril, this is just a preventative measure to help protect the fish from any infections/viruses which sometimes they get from being dormant during the colder weeks and it gives them a boost,i will issue our anglers with walki-talkies and every time they bank a fish i will come down and inject them,some people say that this is a bit over the top but our fish are a vey valuable asset and need to be looked after, after all without them we wouldn't be here

Hooked in France - Feeding Programme

Just to let our anglers know of our feeding programme during the autumn and winter (when the water temp is above 4deg) we feed with cooked maize and wheat, with cranberry and caviar boilies, remember this when you come fishing and always remember to use at least one of these as hookbaits. As of now we have put in close to 750kg of feed to help the fish put on weight and keep them healthy, so you can be sure of some hard fighting commons and mirrors. All of the above baits are available from us at very competitive prices and all are freshly prepeaired
