Another cracking week comes to a close with all anglers enjoying some great sport and vowing to return. Total for the week was 73 carp with 13 x 30+ fish, 36 x 20’s and 24 doubles. Koors and John from Holland came for a 4 day break and managed 32 carp between them fishing our maple fudge boiles over beds of pellet. Koors had 19 carp with his best at 35.5lb’s closely followed by fish of 34, 33 and 32lb’s. His friend John had 13 carp topped by a 33lb mirror and including some high 20’s. Robert from Holland managed 18 carp with 2 over 30lb and lost a good few other lumps during his stay. Colin Berry was on for his second week and only fishing occasional nights, Colin likes to help out generally so only fished as ‘chores’ would allow, banked another 24 fish with the pick of the bunch being a new pb common at 33lb’s plus a cracking 35.2lb mirror. Father and son Andrew and Danny Wiles stopped off for a 48hr session on their way to Spain and both managed new pb’s with 2 x 30’s included in their 12 fish catch. Andrew only fished the one night as he was conserving energy for the drive down to Spain so a good result for the chaps. The weather was hot with a dramatic thunderstorm in the early hours of tuesday night that was accompanied by a deluge of rain. Just what the lake needed, but not what we needed as Jimmy and I spent the early hours of the morning (4am) sandbagging Frog Cottage to stop the water flowing in. Since then the temperature has been a more bearable 25c or so and the carp seem to be getting their heads down for some serious feeding. Shane and Philip, regulars at Le Moulin du Mee had 4 carp within their first hour of arrival with a 17lb mirror, a 24lb common, 25lb common and 32lb mirror !!! Not a bad start at all.
