Week Commencing: Sat 22/01/2022
On Saturday, six keen anglers turned up, all eager to get started. After seeing a few fish coming out the previous week, we were all hoping the lake would keep producing….The weather forecast for this week was far from ideal, with day time temperatures just above freezing, and night time temperatures down to -5 degrees. Netting and grading the stockponds was on the bailiff’s task list this week.
Simon Cunnell found himself in Pole Position for the week. The previous week it produced 3 fish. It was definitely looking promising for Simon. Fishing according to his strengths, Simon chose not to aim for the previous week spot at 35 wraps, but to come back to 30 wraps so he could fish nice and tidy all week long. 3 spinner rigs with 12mm white pop-ups were fished over a mix of crushed boilie, sweetcorn and some hemp. It didn’t take long for Simon to be off the mark, starting off with a 22lb mirror in the early hours of Sunday. The next morning saw him land 2 fish in quick succession, the biggest one was a 28lb mirror known as “Kenny”. The fish seemed to have moved off him until Friday evening when he managed to slip the net under “Holger Dansk” at 18lb. Simon ended the week with 4 fish. Good and solid angling Simon!
Unfortunately this week only produced 4 stockies. The weather definitely played a big roll this week. The lads fished very hard all week long and definitely deserved a few bites. One thing we as bailiff’s can’t do is change the weather, but what we can do is our very best to make your stay as nice as possible. Hope to see you all soon again.
