News - August 2011 60lb + Carp ... & weed ! Aug 11'

An incredable run of sixties still are gracing the banks - with 12 now being banked to date Aug 14th 11'

with at least 6 different individual fish over 60lb !!

A Superb 67lb Mirror being the latest fish to grace the banks - caught by Mark Geille a regular who fished lake 2 last session and fancied a session on lake 1 this year . The Mirror comming from swim 9 caught on lake special frozen boilies .. Mark backed up his catch with another big Mirror at 56lb and other mirrors to 37lbs.

Mark ' an incredable catch and a SMASHED Pb ! loved both lakes and coming back next year to fish lake 2 - trying for a biggie their aswell ! '

Other sixties on lake 1 have been coming from several swims around the lake including swims 9,10, 1 ,3 , 4, 5 & 6. giving all anglers a chance of a 60lb fish!

Lake 1 producing big fish throughout the summer with some weeks faring better than others -
Mid summer saw unseasionally bad weather conditions in the region effecting both lakes and dissrupting spawnning patterns, together with anglers experiancing weed problems on lake 2 especially,
despite our early session weed treatment , weed has been prevalent in the region with the exceptional hot weather conditions in the Spring promoting growth.

We are sorry for those anglers who have struggled in these conditions and have taken measures to combat this for the remainning part of the session and future sessions.

We have contracted a weed cutting / clearance company to sessionally cut the weed and have invested in our own mechanical cutter to deal with defined areas.

Bailiffs TIPS : come prepared with weed end rigs - i.e lightly clip your leads ensuring breakaway lead on the take - Nash weed safe lead clips are perfect (don't need cutting back ) - fish will come to the surface when hooked .
A angler caught a 32lb Mirror on lake 2 in the weed with float tackle .
We have got permanent markers also for free us and a boat for placing markers .

Fishing has picked up well on both lakes with changing weather conditions seeing lake 2 produce some nice new forties , Ian Brown bagging his pb on lake 2 with a golden 40lb + taken on bottom boilie ,44lb Mirror& 43lb Mirrors comming out in swim 8 !
Lake 2 fish have certainly packed the weight on in the short sesion and half since openning lake 2, with some fish recorded over 8lb weight gains . This is good news for lake 2 for the up comming sessions and with the planned extra stocking this winter.

Lake 1 saw over 15 fish over 40lbs banked just last week alone (6th - 13th Aug) including a 67lb Mirror ,56lb Mirror (swim 9) 59lb 12oz Mirror, 48lb Mirror (swim 5), 44lb mirror, (swim 10) , 52lb Mirror (swim 4) , 81lb Cat , 52lb Sturgeon & 42lb Mirror (swim 8 ) , 55lb, 49lb Mirrors to swim 1 .
