Week Commencing: Sat 15/07/2017
Things are getting back to normal after the closed week at Gigantica, Due to all the noise from around the lake with the work party. There was a total of 17 carp being landed including six carp over 40lb. The weather was over cast for most of the week but with some sunny days where the temperature went up to 35 degrees, but it didn’t stop the fish from feeding. And with the New Mainline Baits fish meal version going into the lake this week it made a difference, and the carp seem to like the new fish meal boilies.
First up was Mark Shildrake who was fishing in The Alamo. He had two rods at 25 wraps towards Bob’s beach, and his third rod was cast to a clear area at 15 wraps inline with the roof of the club house, Marks first fish came on Sunday morning where he had a nice 28lb mirror called Elephant Tube. The next morning, he was in again this time with a cracking 40lb4oz mirror called Digits, Mark was baiting up every day with 2kg of DT Baits N-Blend boilies mixed with some hemp and Maze. On Thursday morning mark was in again this time with a 32lb mirror, he was using a simple braided hook link with a size 4 wide gape hook with a boilie tipped with a single grain of pop up plastic corn.
Noel Wolski decided to go into Co’s Point he was fishing all three rods at 27 wraps in-line with the two round trees, he was baiting up every day around 2pm with a 50/50 mix of Mainline Cell and Hybrid boilies with some hemp and maze mixed in. On Monday morning Noel had a take on his left hand rod, this turned out to be a 32lb6oz common, then on Wednesday, after dinner he had one of the new stockies a fish called Paris which went 16lb this was put into the lake in November at 11lb8oz this has put on over 4lb in weight over the last 8 months, the growth rate of these carp are mind blowing, then on Wednesday afternoon he goes and lands a cracking common called The Koi which went 41lb6oz, A standard braided hair rig with a cell bottom bait tipped with a piece of fake corn done the business for Noel.
