Week Commencing: Sat 07/04/2018
With the weather staying a lot more consistent, giving day time temperatures in the high teens to mid twenty’s, and overnight lows of 6 degrees, the fish are definitely becoming more active and, with more prolonged feeding spells, and a good number of fish in the upper layers.
Ryan Mullins fished out of Pole Position for the week, and managed five fish from nine bites; all on zigs at various depths between 18ft to 21ft. He opened his account with “All Aboard” at 24lb, which was followed in quick concession by a 23lb 4oz Common, and Baby Choco at 27lb 8oz. With a short break of a couple of hours for tea and medals, he was soon back in action, and the next run resulted in a cracking 46lb mirror in the shape “Apple Slices” a scaly stunner for sure. Ryan also went on to finish his week in style with “Jason’s Fish” at 34lb 12oz.
Korda France team memberJulien Blot was fishing in The Alamo and had two fish during the week, both of which came to zigs fished at 20ft cast to showing fish. His first fish came on Wednesday morning just after first light with an unknown mirror at 28lb 8oz which has appropriately been named “Frenchie”. He followed this up on Friday morning with “Shakey” at 43lb.
Rowan Hill (one of Gigantica’s near permanent residents) fished Co’s Point but struggled to get amongst them, with one fish for the week; “Minus 7” at 25lb. He will be back again in a couple of week for his revenge no doubt.
Luke Depear fishing from Pole Position looked like he was in for a good week, with an early fish on the Monday morning. However, despite trying his best, and sticking to his plan, he ended his week with “Looking Busy” at 28lb.
With the weather getting better its time to get them rods out of storage and get on the bank, or get that next road trip booked…….. so why not give us a call.
