Week Commencing: Sat 20/10/2018
It’s that time of year again when the Danish descend on The Main Lake, this group of lads are amongst the most constant and successful anglers we have come to us at Gigantica every year. Year after year they produce the goods, this group of talented individuals all fish in a similar manor, which is spreading large baits over a big area and fishing a matching hardened hook bait over the top.This week’s weather was variable, with a mix of sun, cloud and so wind at times. The night time temperature has started to drop going down to around 6 degrees and the day time temperature was an average of 12 degrees. Throughout the week there was a strong westerly wind up until Wednesday when it turned to a northerly to see the week out.
