Week Commencing: Sat 01/11/2018
Week ending 3.11.18
Well its looking like winter is on its way with the temperatures taking a nose dive with daytime temps struggling to get above 10c and the first dusting of snow and morning frosts the fish seem to be very active still with a lot of fish showing in the upper layers.
Rowan Hill decided to fish Cos point, fishing at 31 wraps towards ‘the tits’. He baited consistently throughout the week with 4-5kg a day using a mixture of cell and fyber, this resulted in a lost fish on the first night, which is not ideal but always a good sign that fish are in the area. Tuesday night and Rowans first fish was landed, the ‘spotty leather’ at a top weight of 61lb on the nose, it’s the first time out over 60lb for this one! Rowan used an IQ’D rig with his favourite banoffee wafter to land this beast of a carp, this was followed by a 22lb mirror and a 24lb scaly original, what a stunner!
Lars Nielsen found himself in Bobs Beach and didn’t take any time at all to land his first fish of the session, fishing at 25 wraps towards the stink, Lars landed a 36lb mirror known as ‘bullet’ using a chocolate flavoured bait on a blowback rig set up, Lars baited up with the spomb using about 3-4kg a day. Lars finished the week on the Friday when he landed a fish known as ‘pixles’ at 41lb, top angling Lars!
Ryan Westby fishing in pole position and landed10 fish to 21lb fishing at 25 wraps towards the stink, using IQd rigs and a mixture of cell and link wafters, he baited regularly through the week and after each bite using about 4kg a day
Fishing was tough this week with the weather all over the place, but still a great week had by all, let’s see what next week brings…
week commencing 3.11.18
well what a difference a little sunshine makes the fish have been very active and well spread out over the lake even with the sun out the temperatures are still dropping which seem to be having a knock-on effect on the bigger fish feeding with 17 fish out in total this week most anglers got in on the action at some point during the week.
Sam Barnard was on his second visit to the main lake and fished out of Pole Position with all three rods at 25 wraps towards Stink his baiting approach for the week was to use chopped Royal Marine mixed with maize spodded over an area the size of a dinner table and fished all three rods on the Ronnie rig tipped with a Scent From Hell pop-up resulting in five fish over the week but struggled to get amongst the bigger fish with them all being the new 2018 stockies of which are already showing some great growth rates.
Mark Newson also on his second trip to the main fished Big Southerly with two rods out at 23 wraps and the third at 11 ½ wraps to the back of the left-hand marker Mark managed to land fish from both spots his baiting strategy was to use chopped and 18mm krill with around 5kg over each spot per day his hook bait presentation was an 18mm krill hardened hooker on a size 4 Kurv D-Rig this method worked well for mark landing himself three fish for the week up to 38lb with The Almost Nude Fish.
Luke Cornelius fished Co’s Point a regular on the main lake after coming out early in the draw Luke jumped at the chance to fish Co’s for the first time and with the fish showing at around the 27 wrap mark this was the spot he choose to fish with all three rods at the same distance two were fished at the tit’s and the third was fished to the flat oak Luke fished the IQ-D rig tipped with 18mm krill hook baits and 5kg per spot of free offerings consisting of chopped and whole krill mixed with maize this resulted in six fish over the week with the biggest being one of the 2017 stockies at 29lb 15oz which he has named Timberlake.
Nathan Churchill fished Bobs Beach and with fish showing along the bay
