3rd March 2017

It's been a while since writing up catch reports, what with all the work going on over the past 18 months it has been nice to get a few rods out on a couple of afternoons, inbetween jobs.

Everything is coming together now, freezers are full with our lake boilie PRF, new bait boats ready for hire and some new fresh virgin stock for the blue lagoon and main lake upto 14 kgs, all ready for our first groups on.  The lake record will be broken in the first couple of weeks for some lucky angler with one fish not seen for over a year now, she is going to be well into the 60's as we already know.  

Water temperatures are rising everyday now around 11 - 12 degrees, weather has been unsettled and like you guys in England we have had our fair share of wind.  So it was good to see some fish on the bank 48 lb 12, 45 lb 8,  45 lb,  53 lb 4 and one of the new stock 29 lb 14 oz not a bad average !
Me and Ellen hope to see you guys soon.

17th October 2015

A time now to reflect on 2015 and to see if the removal of the fish last year was worth it me and Ellen are pleased with the results and can't wait for the future years to come, gone have the huge boring catch reports of 70,80,90 and even 100 + fish in a week most of these were 20's and low 30's which we all know you can catch all over England now,there are less fish being caught but better quality the truths here in the final results and we are happier not being a runs water.
8 x different 50's were caught a first for us overall totals were,
32 x 50's, 147 x 40's, 121 x 30's and only 50 x 20's.

Me and Ellen would like to thank everyone who visited us this year and hope many dreams come true for you guys.

See you all in 2017 !
