Well that was great first fish of 2019 local guy Pete fished a 24 hour session and banked Jenny @ her best weight 49 lb 4 oz on swim 4 on our very own peachykeen bottom bait.
It's been a very mild and dry winter going into spring the fish have been very active more on the sunniest days water temperatures are good so we inturduced pellet much earlier this year with boilies being added more and more.
I've had major surgery back in early January nearly 9 weeks on I am still on the mend but getting stronger every day that's why I havnt had the rods out as normal but watch this space lol.
Last group of the year,
Josh and Dad Richard on swims 3 and 4,Alex and Rex arrived Sunday afternoon they were on swims 5 and 10.
Alex returned home Wednesday afternoon, Rex moved to swim 8 from 10 Wednesday evening then onto swim 11 on Thursday evening which did pay off for him with a new PB after we put him on the marks.
It's always a pleasure to see these guys always a few laughs throughout the week.
Over the seasons they have fished here with us they have always hit it wrong on timing but this time they all had a good session PB's for Alex The Mole 59,4, Josh Stallone 57.2 and Rex Split Tail 51.4.
Josh also had another 50 Tyla @ 50 lb 6 oz and two double takes with Dad Richard on the swim next to him priceless.
20 fish in total resulting in 4 X 50's 11 X 40's 5 X 30's.
11 named fish some of these at there best weights.
Swim 4 fished the best and all fish were caught on our very own peachy keen boilie over freshly cooked particles.
We had a mixed bag of weather very mild ending with rain on the Saturday.
See you guys in April ! Maybe not Richard if his transformation into a fish takes place after being sprayed on two occasions with fish milk into a open wound lol. What a laugh that was !

Weather started warm very windy ending up very cold,damp and foggy.
it was slower then sir Bob's normal hauling time these guys finished dinner and got on the rods it was dark and they were back working early every morning so lots of bite times missed.
A Big Thank you Bob,Ashley and Rob for what is a amazing transformation of the inside of our house this will help us get around my forth coming surgery and help my recovery.
Group of 6 guys this week from Merseyside area.
Dave,John,Keith,Brain,Danny and Ben.
Fishing swims 3,4,5,9,10 and 11.
Some of our fresh particles/pellet being used and all there own boilie baits, towards the end of the week some peachy keen was being used.
Well to my surprise this week turned out to be very hard going I was expecting them to have it right off but the fish werent having it.
The weather played a big part in it very strong gusty winds from the start from the south which then turned itself around to the end of the week, high temperatures into the mid 20's sunshine blue skies a right mixed bag to say the least.
Only one swim produced fish Ben on swim 3 fishing his right hand rod down into swim 1 on my advance banked himself 3 PB's a common, 43,8 and 61,12 mirrors yep the big girl was out again on our peachy keen wafters.
So Daisy has now showed her face 5 times this year madness still a lot of fish nowhere to be seen this year.
Great bunch of lads they were made up when Ben joined the 60's club and was awarded one of our hoodies.
We have Rob and little Jax over for the next month from Monday.
Rob will be fishing from mid week and helping me out with some jobs around the lake the list has grown lol
It's been very hard week on the lake Rob's only banked the one fish Emily @ 45 lb 2 oz swim 5 on a Ronnie rig small pop up.
Saturday night was a horrible night to be out fishing strong winds and heavy rain yes rain ! First proper rain since May not enough to bring the levels up this year we are down now 18 inches the worst I've know it in 9 years that's on all lakes main,blue and house stock..

We are back after a 2 week break, group of 7 guys on the lake all from the Bolton area only 6 are fishing.
Andy,Adam,Rob,Connor,Keith,Rod and Stuart.
Guys are on swims 220.127.116.11.10 and 11 baits being used are peachy keen boilies,freshly cooked particles,pellet.
I was feeling very positive about this week water temperature had dropped yet again with the fresh northerly wind blowing on it most of the week, so the fish should have been on the munch I knew we should see some lumps out all over the lake would The Big Scale show his face ? No ! Will some of the other fish what havnt graced the bank this year also show up ? Yes of course.
What was I saying lol read on
