John and Jane Newby said “they had a wonderful holiday , the accommodation was perfect and the fishing , although slow to start (as expected due to the heat) was amazing, 17 carp to 50lbs 6ozs and 7 cats to 61lbs 8ozs ” glad you had a good time !
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!
Mr Hodgins fished days and nights but only had one fish during the night, some days were a little slow but they still ended there trip with 18 Carp topped with a stunning Common of 41lbs 10ozs and Cats to 45lbs. These were caught using waffters or pop ups fished over mixed particles
Mr Wainwright struggled a bit but he ended with 4 carp including a cracking common of 40lbs + and Cats to 75lbs
Carl Pryce said he and his mates had a great time at Firs catching a few, loosing a couple then again catching a few more. One fish in particular they lost was a massive Catfish, but they did battle for 2 hours with this 68lb Cat . Top angling lads !!
Mr Kemps party struggled to get a bite for the first 3 days,but it was a 77lb Cat that broke the ice… then the fishing picked up and they banked a further 12 fish, this was topped with a 35lb mirror and a 45lb Cat. Although they didn’t catch many fish, they said they enjoyed there stay.
Mr Carter comment was “Fishing was hard but the beers were cold, Great time had” they still managed 3 Cats to 64lbs and 10 Carp to 31lbs most fish were caught between 1am and 5am. Well done lads !
