The Painter Party had a scorcher of a week with temperatures again reaching mid 40 degrees which certainly did nothing for the fishing, they had 5 x cats to 52lbs and one Carp of 25lbs
Hot week had by the Oliffe party, carp not playing the game… they had 2x 80lb+ Cats the bigger of the two going 84lbs and 7 other smaller ones and 2 carp to 27lbs.
The weather has played real tricks over the past few weeks with the fish not really getting there spawning done in one go,then just when they started they stopped, as temperatures rose then fell, then for a week or ten days the temperatures sored to a massive 45 degrees C ! this did nothing for the fishing….only the cats played ball. The McLean party had 11 cats to 52lbs and 4 Carp to mid thirties.
Mr Stevens said they had a great time, managed 21 fish, including carp to 51lbs 12ozs and cats to 52lbs… well done lads!
