Can I use particles at Gigantica?
Yes, we allow the use of our own particles, which we prepare freshly for you. The mixed particle we sell consists of hemp and maize or we provide just the maize on its own. We do not allow the use of any other particles.
Are nuts allowed?
No nuts are allowed at Gigantica, as they have previously been fed in excess which isn’t good for the fish.
Can I use pellets?
Yes, but only the use of our own house pellet. They are a premium grade pellet, which the stock fish have been reared on and are therefore recognised as a food source. You may bring small pellet for use inside solid bags but not as loose feed.
Can my partner and family accompany me to Gigantica?
Non-angling guests are welcome at Gigantica. No guests below 18 years of age are permitted on the Main Lake. The cost for non-angling guests is £225 for the week, which includes the same food package as the angler.
Can I bring my dog with me?
No animals are allowed at Gigantica.
Can I use my own landing net and weigh sling?
No. We provide all nets, mats and slings at Gigantica, which must be used. We take our biosecurity very seriously to reduce the risk of infection to our precious stock.
When do the fish spawn?
This is entirely based on the weather conditions, so we cannot predict when it will happen a long way in advance. In what is perceived as a 'normal' year, the carp usually spawn in May, and are finished by June.
Are there any short to medium range swims, as I can’t cast a long way?
There are plenty of swims which respond well to short/medium range fishing. Ones to consider are; Stock Pond, Baxter’s, Bobs Beach, Treeline, Scottie’s Corner, Big Southerly, Oblivion and Big Girls.
Are shelf life boilies allowed?
No. Only fresh or fresh frozen boilies are allowed at Gigantica.
