16th September 2017

Full group this week they have been to us few times before from up in Barrow in Furness long trip down for these guys and they didn't arrive until late Saturday so rods won't out until late in the evening.
Fishing swims 3,4,5,9,10 and 11, Chappy moved to swim 2 Friday from swim 10.
Tony,Steve,Chappy,Cam,Kevin and Paul.
Using our particle/pellet Peachy Keen,PRF and various other boilies homemade crayfish boilie being one of them, not all the guys are using bait boats spodding the bait out instead.
Cam was the only one throughout the week to have banked a carp which wasn't until the early hours of Friday and later in the afternoon a second one new PB common @ 38 lb 8 oz and Ambler @ 38 lb 8 oz both on peachy keen topped with mainline peppered peach wafter on different marks.
It was a very slow week and very frustrating to say the least these guys have tried everything to get these fish to pick up a bait but they won't having it and then when they all thought all was lost half way through the week Steve on swim 4 banked our resident catfish The Pug first time out since reopening after 2 hours 15 minutes with him he was landed new PB and lake record @ 75 lb massive weight gain since restocking last year @ 58 lb caught on a pop up 18 inches above the bottom.

Weather was chilly first half of the week going down to 4 degrees one night dropping the water temperature 4 degrees could explain why the fishing was quiet we have had high pressure over us throughout the week and ended with warm sunny days.
