WOW ! hottest week of the year with some ridiculous tempratures which clearly effected the fish.
With a daytime high of 52 degrees and an incredible 33 degrees at midnight early in the week,the fishing was very slow.
There were chances though, generally later in the week but with a few lost, the end total of the week was just 5 fish.
Best of the week, was Jordan, fishing Alcatraz who had a 30 early on but a last minute run on Saturday morning produced the fine looking '2,3,4' at a good post spawing weight of 44lb and a new PB !
Sam next door in Pole, lost his fish fish after a brief battle but was rewarded after sticking too it and banking a 28lb fish on the Friday.
Both Pete & Michael had lost a fish each in the week but Michaelsaved a blank when casting too some showing fish fish and banked a very pretty common of 32lb.
Last but not least, Fish the bailiff snared a small 20+ from the tree line. Mainline New Grange scoring here, for most of the lads actually.
Now the weathers due too break,we can crack on and fish instead of just sit there melting.
Were getting intothe 'big fish'months and Im certain some HUGE fish will soon start too see the bank, just how big the Giant will be is a guess but having evadedcapture for 14 months now, Im hoping to see him banked around the 84-85lb mark. Fingers crossed.
Be safe, be lucky.
