After another busy Saturday change over i must say these guys made my day what a wicked bunch of guys these are i can see already this is going to be a great week, I wasn't wrong by that just a shame the fishing in the main lake could have been just the same as the laughs we had with the lads.
Definitely our worst week of the season with the fish feeding on naturals all week fry,bloodworm bugs whatever it was they didn't want to know about what the guys had to offer,big drop in water temperature 6 degrees because of all the night time rain,Thursday was 15 degrees difference to last week daytime temperature all of this also didn't help,Loads of fish topping and crashing on the marks but that was it,to say that they did have fish out a few cats and carp to 32 lb 2 oz caught by John C on swim 11.The guys were glad of the stock lake and had plenty out all doing PB sturgeons up to 38 lb 6 oz caught by marc on french sausage soaked in Hinders tuna oil, and PB cats up to 54 lb caught by John B on the sausage,also carp up to 31 lb 8 oz caught by marc, the cat and carp are now both in the main lake now we also moved a 19 lb cat into stock lake from swim 11 caught by John C.
Weather heavy rain most nights big drop in day time temperature from last week sun and cloud changeable winds 19 - 23 degrees.
Water temperature big drop from last week 19 degrees.
Top rods goes to all of them because of how hard it was,Various baits and swims.
