5th May 2018

Individuals this week 2 Vikings regulars here for many years Rene and Michael from Denmark and also Petes back from last year who lives over here local to us.
Fishing swims 4,9 and 10 and I will be fishing on swim 3 in between jobs trying to help move the fish about.
First part of the week upto Tuesday nothing very quiet no feeding patterns, very hot weather into the 30's has started the blue lagoon into spawning and the house stock followed by the main lake in the early hours of Friday.
2 am Wednesday and I was in catching H at her best weight up nearly 3 lbs 45 lb 2 oz swim 3 on our peachy keen boilie finally !
Pete was also in Wednesday morning just before breakfast double take Tash @ 44 lb 8 oz and 36 lb 2 oz swim 4 on peachy keen and maize on the other side of the lake around the same time as my fish Michael also banked a 45 lb mirror.
I got back down the lake around 20.30 Thursday evening by 21.30 William graced the bank @ 54 lb over the moon swim 3 I fished over 4 kgs of bait and she was caught on peachy keen topped with a 10 mm wafter dumbell.
The Vikings decided to reel in Friday morning and go home because of the heavy spawning Pete stayed on fishing the blue lagoon.
Hopefully we can now move on with the season they so needed to spawn as I've been saying no feeding patterns and when they did feed big gaps in between.


28th April 2018

Cancellation which we were unable to fill this week so it will be used to do some work around the lake.
Much cooler so the spawning from last week has stopped so the bigger girls will be waiting for temperatures to rise again.
Showery today with storms forecasted tonight and tomorrow with some flooding.
Fish are being fed daily until anglers are back on pellet/Maize/Boilies.
The fish will be fed also when anglers are on if we consider not enough bait is going in regularly.


21st April 2018

This was a rest week so we took the opportunity and was lucky enough to have Rob Hughes and Terry Smith from Euro Carp Tours and Rich a friend of Terry's here for couple of days, doing some filming and promo work for us. It was a very hot day when they arrived 31 degrees, a quiet first night but Rob banked a named fish Nobby early Sunday morning fishing off swim 8 @ 41 lb.  Some of the smaller stocked fish showed signs of spawning and on Sunday afternoon some of the bigger fish. Rich fished off swim 3 and also fished a few out of the Blue lagoon one mirror was around 25 lb so I moved over to main lake to grow on he also done his PB tripping up Jenny @. 47 lb 4 oz fishing right hand rod down into swim 2.
Many thanks to Terry for sorting this and thank you Rob your a Gent.


14th April 2018

Returning guests this week Josh,Richard,Paul and Alex from Northants area, fishing swims 4,5,9 and 11.
Bait being used is our PRF boilie pellet/particle bait boats being used.
After last weeks very quiet spell we hoping that this weeks warm weather will raise the water temperature and the carp will finally get on the bait and stop eating naturals.

Finally we have a fish out Buzz ! swim 11 Alex 24 lb 8 oz on single banoffee wafter this fish was stocked back in mid November from the Blue Lagoon @ 20 lb because of its shape good decision me thinks 👍🏻 a grower 🐳 Another one for Alex Wednesday morning 37 lb 8 oz on PRF boilie topped with a banoffee hi viz wafter still waiting on the big girls to get on the bait. Josh was down in swim 1 for the day Wedsnesday in the shallows 27 degrees.

Again its paid off for Richard this time tripping up Big Al on our PRF boilie topped with hi viz @ 46 lb 2 oz swim 1


7th April 2018

Group of 4 regulars this week from Blackpool and London.
Steve,Neil,Karl and Russell fishing swims 3,5,9 and 11.
Boilies being used are peachy keen/ cell and our particle/ pellet.
To say it was slow this week on the lake would be a under statement, no carp one run which produced a new lake Catfish Record @ 80 lb 8 oz The Pug.I personally think these big girls are sitting waiting for the water temperature to rise so they can spawn which I would say will be around Tuesday/Wednesday/ Thursday next week going on our temperatures forecast for next week into the mid 20s but the guys can bank a few before they kick off. The lake record could still go early next week 🙏 with good timing 🎣
After lots of cold rain through the week it dropped the water temperature a couple of degrees which hasn't helped,these guys gave their all and tried everything.


31st March 2018

2018 season begins Mark,Simon,Andy,Bill and Andy from the Derbyshire area.
Fishing swims 3,4,5,9,10 and 11, which changed mid week to 1,2,5,10 and 12.
Guys used our particle mix boilies used were Peachy Keen and some others the guys brought with them bait works artic heat and cc Moore.
Before the guys arrived we knew it was going to be a struggle water temperatures are well below average 8 degrees cold rain most days keeping it down not a lot of sunshine and when it has warmed up its followed by a storm with gales and more cold rain,this time last year they were spawning that's not going to happen this month looking at the long range !
Even so we had 7 carp out Andi Swim 11 Katie @ 53 lb 8 oz her best weight also a 42,7 he finished on a PB common Saturday morning a fish that was 38 lb in late September is now 43 lb 10 oz a good sign the winter feeding has paid off we named this Sylvia with its small defect to its tail fin it will be easy to track,Simon who was on swim 4 had a 38 lb PB, Bill swim 10 new PB @ 45 lb 4 oz ,Andy who was on swim 9 moved on Tuesday to swim 12 banked a PB common @ 41 lb 10 oz, Mark who moved from 3 to swim 1 banked a 38 lb mirror.
