Wet,wet,wet at Le Moulin du Mee

14/04/2013

The lads have endured the wettest week ever experienced at Le Moulin du Mee with the stream breaking its banks after rising 4ft in a matter of hours. Both lakes were at an all time high and even with the sluices open we saw swims under water and rivers running down the tracks. It really was a nightmare of mother natures making that was partly made more bearable by the great stamp of fish the lads managed to bank. Tony, fishing ‘Sams’ fished well for his 13 carp with a common of 54lb 4oz topping a list that also included 40′s of 48lb, 46lb 8oz and 44lb plus 7 good 30′s and a solitary 20 at 29lb. Stephan, fishing ‘Deliverance’ also managed a good bag of 12 carp topped by a brace of 50′s at 53lb and 51lb plus 4 x 40′s at 49lb 7oz, 47lb, 46lb 6oz and 40lb. Stephan also had 4 x 30′s, one x 20 and a solitary double. Adrian and Kevin both had 50′s and Dennis a 48lb 8oz mirror in his catch whilst poor old Ainslie drew the short straw and finished with a brace of 20′s. All in all a great result from a dreadful weeks weather and with sunshine and warmth forecast from Sunday onwards I am hoping that the big girls of last year will start showing up in the catches. It is strange that all the 50′s banked so far this season are new to that weight and the 50′s and 60′s of last year are yet to make an appearance. Exciting times ahead methinks !! Total bag for the week is as follows (total for season in brackets). 50lb + - 5 (8) 40 – 50lb - 9 (31) (more than half over 45lb). 30 – 40lb – 12 (32) 20 – 30lb - 6 (11) Doubles - 0 (2) Singles - 1 (2) The new lads have just arrived and within an hour Andy has banked a stunning 59lb 8oz mirror ! Happy days
