A challenging couple of weeks.

20/06/2011

 With the early spawning caused by the April heatwave we have seen the carp rather preoccupied on things other than feeding. Fishing has been slowish by our usual standards with catches containing more 20's than we have seen for some time. These are generally male fish that are still picking up the odd bait whilst the bigger females carry on with reproducing ! Having said that we are still seeing some cracking fish each week with a well mended 52lb mirror last week and this morning a 49lb 12oz spawned out common so although we have not had the large catches for a couple of weeks now the quality of the fish banked is still very good. One thing everyone commented on was the hard fights they were having from the carp in particular the commons that were described as 'being on steroids' by several anglers. With spawning reaching its conclusion now we are expecting the fishing to improve back to normal levels so keep a look out on the blog at ..carpdreams.wordpress.com for regular updates.

Pictured below are Mark and his 52lb mirror and Mike with his 49lb 12oz common caught this morning.
