Bailiff Comments

Week Commencing: Sat 18/10/2014

Well what a week this week with the Dutch guys visiting us again.  It had everything and a week I will never forget for various reasons and I can’t wait for you all to come back next year lads. 

Water temperature was 17 degrees this week. 

Well down to the fishing.  The first couple of days where uneventful for everyone even though the fish could be heard crashing everywhere during the hours of darkness.  This can often be the way in the autumn, but it was only a matter of time before a fish was caught.  Then on Tuesday night the duck was broken and first off the mark was Mikkel in The Alamo.  

What a fish it was Spences at 68lb 8oz.  Fishing at 20RL towards Baxter’s on a new clear area and baiting with 5kg of DNA boilies.  The rig that tricked the big mirror was a snowman rig tied to a size 4 Wide Gape hook and a N-Trap semi stiff hooklink.   A truly great fish to catch and another of the Gigantica biggies slipping up for only the second time this season.

Next to receive a bite was Hans in the inform Oblivion.  A swim that has really been doing the business of late, and fishing 23RL towards Alcatraz being the spot at the moment and it was no surprise this is where Hans received his take from.  After a hard battle his reward, The Ginge at 48lb and an awesome fish to look at.  Also a new PB for Hans.  Again taken on a snowman rig over 5kg of DNA boilies, Hans went on to catch another fish weighing 28lb again form the 23RL spot.   

Next to catch was Steve the bailiff on Thursday morning.  After spending some time fishing in Pole Position over the last few weeks he decided to drop back in there as it wasn’t fancied it in the draw.  Fishing at 15RL slightly left of the swim he received a take at first light.  Ziggy Stardust was his reward and at a massive 66lb 4oz, Steve caught the same fish back in June at 49lb.  It was hard to believe how much weight this fish had put on and looking good for it as well.  A new PB for Steve, caught on an IQ D Rig and 2 balanced tiger nuts fished over a mixture of hemp tigers and 3kg of Mainline Hybrid.  Another little common weighing 21lb was also caught off the same spot on Saturday morning for Steve. 

At almost the same time as Steve, Christian in Big Southerly had a take and his reward was Shoulders at 53lb, a solid mirror that seems to be getting bigger after every capture.  Fishing at 13RL towards the lodge and again baiting with DNA boilies.

Next it was Anais in Alcatraz.  Anais was fishing at 17RL towards Co’s Point and landed a common weighing 31lb, again caught on DNA bait.

Well what a week a grate bunch of lads.   It's that time of year where the big fish seem to be making an appearance as they have a little feed up before winter.  Another new 60 as well, from seeing how much weight Ziggy has put on in 4 months how big could some of the others be that haven’t been out for a while?  Really makes you wonder how many 70’s do we have at the moment, how many 60’s?  How big is Fudgy’s?  So many questions that need answers.

 

See you soon

Steve
