5 new anglers from Nottingham at the lake this week. Another very hot week, slightly cooler towards the end with a little rain, so again, very hard fishing for our guys. Rain predicted for the next few days which we so desperately need, so hope it is not just another false prediction....- 13 carp caught totalling 431.5lb.... 4 lost....- 46.8 caught by Paul Stones, 45lb 2oz caught by Pete Needham, 42lb caught by Neil Greenfield...

Hallelujah - it looks like the large carp may be on the munch again, and not before time, with a 60lb'er 50lb'er and 5 - 40's coming out this week, including a cracking brace. The 50 and 60 have both lost around 7lb's in weight, and the 40's, a few lb's, so it just goes to show that they have not been feeding since the spawn. Another really hard week though for our 4 regular guys from Norfolk, and 1 new angler from Wiltshire. Still very hot with no rain to speak of....- 20 carp caught totalling 741lb....- 60lb caught by Matty Jessop, 54lb caught by Will George...- 42lb caught by Tich Lakey, 41lb 8oz again caught by Will George, 41lb caught by Tony Nash, 40lb 8oz again by Tony Nash, 40lb caught by Matty Jessop...- Also - 37b, 36lb 8oz x 2, 36lb 7oz, 34lb 8oz common, 33lb x 2, 31lb common, 31lb, 30lb x 2...

This week, Graham stayed another week, and we had 4 of our regular anglers from Surrey who have been coming here since we opened - they have caught some blinding carp in the past, one of them, Paul Bolton caught the largest fish in 2008 with a 55lb'er. This time it was not to be, the continuing hot weather and ongoing drought took its toll once again, and we are now praying for rain. Lack of oxygen is making the carp lethargic, the larger fish going for deeper, cooler water. The hot weather is forecast for another two weeks, then we hope that we can get back to normal. 15 carp caught totalling 545lb, with an average of 36.33lb. 5 lost.... 41lb 4oz caught by Graham Dunn.... Also - 38lb 4oz, 36lb 8oz, 34lb 12oz, 34lb 10oz, 31lb 1oz, 30lb 14oz..... And - 29lb 13oz, 28lb 12oz, 28lb 3oz, 27lb, 25lb 6oz, 25lb x 2, 24lb 13oz.

We welcomed 3 of our regular anglers from East Sussex, also good old Graham Dunn back again, and we knew it was going to be an extremely hard week for them with the drought continuing. Droughts change the dynamics in a lake and can cause a sudden abundance in natural food. April and May have surpassed in both heat and dryness, the drought of 1974, and aid has had to be given to stricken farmers with water being taken from some of the large Public lakes in the area. We have never known it like this. Our guys still enjoyed their week with us, and got up to a few pranks with Colin, including getting him down to photograph their amazing new species(which was an extremely large inflatable specimen of fish). 12 carp caught totalling 418lb, with an average of 35lb.... - 45lb caught by Mark Rose, 41lb caught by Andy Martin....- And - 36lb 12oz, 33lb 12oz, 32lb, 30lb 4oz, 30lb common...

This week, we had 5 anglers from Norfolk - 2 of our regular guys and 3 new. They had a great time, but again it was a very, very hard week for them. The carp seem to be taking a long time recovering from their spawn but it did seem to be a particularly hard one. Considering this Spring has been the hottest and driest in 100 years, with a drought declared in most departments, it is no wonder that this is having an effect on the fishing. It has become slightly cooler with some rain, although not enough yet to reduce water temperature, and rain does encourage the carp to start feeding, so we hope that things will improve from now on. 19 carp caught totalling 721lb with an average weight of 38lb. 3 lost...... 43lb 15oz caught by Simon Feilden, 43lb 8oz again by Simon Feilden, 41lb 2oz yet again by Simon Feilden....- Also - 39lb, 38lb 15oz, 38lb 6oz, 38lb 2oz, 38lb, 37lb 12oz, 37lb, 36lb 4oz, 36lb 2oz, 34lb 12oz, 34lb 8oz, 34lb, 33lb 4oz, 30lb....

This week, 2 of our regulars from Cheshire, and 4 new anglers from Worcester visited us. It was a slightly better week size wise, and although the week started well, a couple of our anglers did not get another bite all week after that. Weather could not make up its mind and went from brilliant sunshine to storm and rain to pretty chilly, especially at night. From experience of other years, when the weather is so changeable, this affects the carp's eating habits. 25 carp caught totalling 1152lb's with an average weight of 46lb. 46lb 2oz caught by Chris Fellows, 44lb 2oz caught by Chris Pryce, 42lb 3oz caught by John Morgan, 42lb 1oz caught by John Dixon...

Two of our regular couples with their families from Essex at the lake this week. Fishing was exceptionally hard after spawning last week and into the beginning of this week. The large carp seem to be taking a well earned rest after two spawnings in 3 weeks, it has really taken it out of them, and no form of encouragement brought them to the net. Most lakes in this area have had the same experience we hear, and even though cooler with some rain and a nippy wind earlier in the week, they just could not be moved. These guys have always had fantastic catches over the years they have been visiting us, but conditions this time were against them. Not to detract from the stunning specimens that were caught, they did catch 19 carp, totalling 663lb, with an average of 35lb. Well done guys under really difficult circumstances. 43lb caught by Barry Gibbs... Also - 39lb 1oz, 38lb, 37lb 15oz, 37lb, 36lb 14oz, 36lb 2oz, 35lb, 34lb 8oz, 32lb 4oz, 31lb, 30lb 7oz, 30lb...

6 of our regular anglers on the lake this week, 2 from Lincolnshire, and 4 from Liverpool. It turned out to be a bit of a nightmare with extreme heat causing spawning once again. Catches started well with the first 60, but spawning started after the first couple of days and continued all the rest of the week. This is the second time in 3 weeks, and affected fishing dramatically making it a really difficult week. Two of our guys blanked unfortunately, which we hate to see, but we cannot predict the weather and water temperatures, but luckily this does not happen often at our lake. Still a good few weights caught though. 26 carp with 6 lost totalling 1,053lb's and averaging 41lb....- 2 - 60's, 1 - 50, 7 - 40's, 14 - 30's, 2 - 20's..... 62lb caught by Steve McCarthy, 60lb 10oz caught by Steve Holland, 52lb 5oz again by Steve McCarthy, 45lb caught by Ged Hargreaves, 43lb 2oz again by Ged Hargreaves, 41lb caught by Tony Holland, 40lb 11oz again by Steve McCarthy, 40lb 8oz caught by Steve Holland, 40lb 8oz again by Tony Holland, 40lb and again by Tony Holland....- Also - 39lb, 37lb 12oz, 37lb 8oz, 36lb 12oz, 36lb 8oz, 35lb 8oz, 35lb, 34lb 12oz, 34lb 4oz, 33lb 12oz, 32lb 8oz, 32lb, 31lb, 30lb 8oz...

4 of our regular anglers on the lake this week, as you know Graham and his son stayed from last week.... - Fishing has been very slow due to the extreme heat, and most caught early evening or morning when cooler. Spawning seems to be over but the carp don't like eating when it is so hot, they prefer to sunbathe. Still a cracking week, with the lake managing to produce good weights with 6 - 40's, 17 - 30's and 9 -20's. 33 Carp totalling 1,128lb's with an average weight of 34.18lb. 48lb caught by Stuart Hobkirk, 47lb 15oz caught by Eric Chan-Pensley, 42lb 14oz caught again by Stuart Hobkirk, 42lb caught by Jamie Dunn, 42lb caught again by Eric Chan-Pensley...- Also - 39lb 8oz, 38lb 12oz common, 38lb 1oz, 37lb 14oz, 37lb 3oz, 37lb x 2, 36lb 4oz, 36lb, 35lb x 3, 34lb 8oz x 2, 34lb x 2, 31lb...

There were 6 anglers this week, 2 regulars Graham Dunn and his son Jamie from Gillingham, Kent. He was here for 5 weeks last year at different times. Some weeks he just stayed on - he just loves it here. The other 4 anglers are new to Lac Les Pins from Lancashire. As mentioned before, spawning started last Wednesday, so we were rooting for our guys to score well, and the lake did not disappoint. Even with spawning still going on due to the heat - it was hot, hot, hot with a couple of nasty thunderstorms, and being slower than of late, our guys still had a brilliant week with 37 carp totalling 1,461lbs and another super average weight of 39.48lb. 8 lost.......- Greedy “Shoulders” was caught twice weighing 53lb 12oz and going down a little with being caught, at 51lb 12oz by Pete Southworth.......- 50lb caught by Chris Walmsley.... 45lb 2oz caught by Dave Ashton, 45lb caught by Chris Walmsley, 41lb 12oz caught by Pete Southworth, 41lb again caught by Pete Southworth, 41lb caught by Jamie Dunn, 40lb 4oz caught by Graham Dunn, 40lb caught again by Chris Walmsley, 40lb caught again by Dave Ashton........- Also - 39lb 8oz, 39lb x 5, 38lb 4oz, 37lb 10oz, 37lb 7oz, 37lb x 2, 36lb x 2, 35lb x 2, 34lb x 3, 33lb.....

We had 4 of our regular guys from Wiltshire this week, and another amazing week was had by all. They had originally wanted last week, but got pipped to the post and thought they could not have as brilliant a week as Craig McEvoy group, but we proved them wrong with another 60, 3 -50's, 17 - 40's, 23 - 30's and only 1 under 30lb at 28lb 4oz coming out again with a total of 45 carp weighing 1,969lbs, and a top average at 43.75lb's. Varying weather with thunderstorms, strong winds and rain for a couple of days, but still staying warm. Also brilliant sunshine with the wind keeping it at a nice temperature. The carp started to spawn on Wednesday, so hopefully it will be over soon for this weeks anglers. Well done guys - brilliant yet again.... 65lb - caught by Tony Sheen...- 53lb 8oz - caught by Mark Billing, 50lb 8oz - again by Mark Billing, 50lb - caught by Lee Beavan.......- Jock Martin - 48lb 8oz, 46lb 8oz, 45lb 8oz, 42lb 8oz, 41lb 8oz.......

I know I am posting this early as the week has only just begun, but I really must let you know that our 5 anglers from Wolverhampton have caught 11 carp in the first 24 hours - among them a lake record of 66lb 4oz, a 51lb 10oz and also 3 commons in their late 30's. Nothing under 30lb. Absolutely brilliant and still another 6 days to go -so watch this space................Well, I was not wrong to ask you to watch this space, and you are not going to be disappointed - what an amazing week with 47 carp caught to a total of 1693lbs, and another great average of 36.5lbs... 8 lost. Mostly cloudy with some sunny intervals and very cold at night. Threatening to storm a couple of days, but not really amounting to anything. The Northerly wind again kept the water temperature to a balance that the carp liked, so no sign of spawning yet. A brilliant week - congratulations boys, and the champagne went down a treat........ 66lb 4oz caught by Richard Shaw, 56lb 13oz caught by Craig McEvoy, 51lb 10oz also by Craig McEvoy, 51lb 4oz caught by Nick Beaseley....

No one on the lake this week, so our Baz and Colin decided to make the most of it and do a spot of fishing themselves. They only fished at night, because most people know what a workaholic Baz is, and there is always some job to do during the day. Therefore in reality, it was only 2 days of fishing, but a great result, especially for Baz who caught a 41lb 8oz, 40lb 4oz, 38lb 14oz, 37lb 4oz, and a 35lb 10oz.... I am afraid he put Colin to shame this time, but he still caught a 37lb 14oz..... 2 lost, and catch weighing 231.37lbs.

Another fantastic week for two more anglers from Norfolk and one from Nottinghamshire. Ten 40's and twelve 30's - again nothing under 30lb... 22 carp caught with 7 lost, totalling 808.625lb, averaging 36.75lb. For this sized lake, the averages are phenomenal and the carp are feeding really well at the moment - not too hot and water temperatures keeping cool. Weather warm but from early on in the week, a very cold Northerly wind - OK for the guys in the Med swims as I'm sure it is quite a few degrees warmer over there. 46lb 14oz caught by Ron Chillery, along with a 44lb and a 41lb 5oz... 42lb caught by Stuart Beale along with a 40lb 8oz and two at 40lb's... 41lb 8oz caught by Vince Bloom, along with a 41lb 4oz, and a 41lb... Also...- 39lb 8oz, 39lb 6oz, 39lb 2oz, 38lb 14oz, 37lb 9oz, 37lb 2oz, 37lb, 32lb 6oz, 31lb 13oz, 31lb 4oz, 31lb 2oz, 30lb. Absolutely cracking, and each one achieving their personal best.

Our Opening week 2011 started with rain and wind and the first 40lb'er coming out overnight. Then as forecast, it started to warm up dramatically over the coming week, causing it overall to be a pretty hard week for our 4 anglers from Norfolk. Having said that, they all had a 40lb'er, with young lad Craig's being a Personal Best. Nothing under 30lb, and six 40lb'ers means a great opening week with 817.30 lbs altogether. Around 8 carp lost - one by Paul Towler who thinks at least a 50lb Mirror. Great average weight yet again....47lb 4oz caught by Paul Towler, 44lb 4oz caught again by Paul Towler, 42lb by Paul Weaving, 42lb by Dave Weaving, 41lb by Craig Coleman, and 40lb again caught by Dave Weaving....

END OF SEASON 2010 REPORT - - ... 2010 proved to be a fantastic season for Lac Les Pins.... The amount of large regularly caught carp has been phenomenal, and with their rate of growth, there will be even greater weight gain for next Season 2011.... Our anglers have been more than satisfied with their catches, returning sometimes 2 and 3 times in the same Season, and booking sensibly for the following year in order to secure a space.... The weather as usual - varying, ranging from freezing - 50 degrees and sometimes changing so quickly, thus showing in our less productive weeks, just how much this affects the catches.... The best week of the year was 24th April - 1st May with Lee Beavan's group of 5 catching an amazing 9 - 20's, 39 - 30's 16 - 40's, 2 - 50's and 1 - 60.... The best Common was caught by Steve McCarthy on 13th May, and weighed 42lb 10oz.... The best Mirror was caught by Dave Rose on 22nd June and weighed 63lb..... The carp are being fed throughout the Winter with protein pellet to maintain health and growth - they are in superb condition.... There will be many more 50's and 40's next year, with a couple of 60's maybe.... No sitting around for us now, there is plenty more maintenance work going on in the lodge and grounds meanwhile, so do not think that we all have a 5 month holiday for one minute. We carry on working to make sure that everything is in tip top order for our anglers in the next Season.... As many of our anglers can vouch for, Bazza worked endlessly during the Season in blistering heat to finish the fish ladder, in order to conform to DDAF Legislation - this is to protect any travelling fish from the external waterway, (although we have never seen one yet) this is the Law. Now the lake is totally up to regulation standard (hopefully they will not invent another one)..... Our new website has proved to be a great asset, with the advantage of allowing us to update the weekly log, along with names, dates and weights on photos as they come in..... Chris, Baz and Colin at Lac Les Pins would like to wish all our friends and their families the best of the Season's Greetings, and we look forward to an even more brilliant 2011 Season, with superb catches to report.

Three anglers from the Isle of Wight came to the lake to finish our last week of the Season. They also came at the end of August with another 3 anglers, and had an amazing week with 40 carp including a 50. This week it has been very, very hard for them, obviously much colder but a few sunny intervals. Plenty of fish showing, but they did not seem very interested in eating. A couple lost and 6 carp banked. 40lb 5oz caught by Mark Eastman...... Also 38lb 15oz, 37lb, 33lb 4oz.... And 27lb 10oz, 22lb. They are back twice next year though, in May and August because they love it, and they know that the big carp are in there just waiting to be caught. Fishing, THATS THE NAME OF THE GAME.

6 new anglers visited the lake this week from Liverpool and Leicestershire.

5 anglers, 1 was our regular twice yearly guy, and the others were new guys to the lake. They really struggled this week, fishing was extremely hard work but they did manage a few nice lumps.

Our 6 New guys from Nottingham started the week off very well with some lovely warm days and a couple of very cold nights. They were doing ooh so well, then on Tuesday night and into the early hours of Wednesday morning, one of our fishermen started to feel very unwell, so it was all systems go to get the emergency services out to the lake. They were brilliant, but had to take our guy off to the hospital. He felt like his old self by the next day, but he had to stay in and have a few tests. Luckily, he was discharged just in time on Saturday morning for his flight home, thank goodness. He was in the best place possible at the time, but sadly missed most of his week's fishing, though still caught six all over 30lb with one 40lb to boot in the first 3 days. Take care Ron. Anyway carp that were banked totalled 866.71 lbs. 3 were lost....- 47lb 4oz caught by Barry Henson, 46lb caught by Bob Fletcher, 46lb 4oz caught by Dave Tizzard, 43lb 3oz caught by Ron Lockyer....

6 new anglers to the lake this week, and great guys (and gal) they were. Had a great laugh with them, and they had a brilliant week, even Nikki who blanked until Friday night and then caught a lovely 36lb'er. But she had a great time - is one of the lads, and had great fishing knowledge. She is coming back next year determined to get the "big one". Weather was hot during the day, with a few very cold nights, but this kept lake temperature at a great level for the fishing. They caught a fantastic 40 carp equating to 1,626.68lb's...... 52lb 4oz caught by Simon Elliott, 48lb 14oz also caught by Simon Elliott, 48lb 12oz caught by Matthew Hallissey, 44lb caught by Chris Thorp, 43lb 4oz also caught by Matthew Hallissey......

Five of our regular anglers on the lake this week, all top fishermen and a great bunch where you can have a good banter. A bit of male chauvinism going on with Chris being the only woman on “Barby Nite”, but she can hold her own where that is concerned. They all had a fantastic week with the weather again up and down with sunshine, rain, sunshine, rain .. and a couple of very cold nights, but great fishing conditions, as it seems that now it has cooled down, they are all on the munch, and some. 32 carp caught with 5 lost - one being a big lump, probably around 45 - 50 - thats a shame. Carp totalling 1,131lb......- 47lb 12 oz caught by Phil (pops) Spendelow, 45lb caught by Richard Shaw, 44lb 8oz caught again by Richard Shaw, 40lb 4oz caught by Craig McEvoy, and the same fish 40lb 4oz (Afghan) caught again by Craig McEvoy.....

7 of our regular anglers (one just 12 and 2 ladies) visited the lake this week. After the slow performance of the last few weeks, and the fact that there was going to be no let up in the extremely hot weather conditions, we thought that it was going to be hard going again. But it is fishing, and you can never foretell anything. 20 carp in all with a 61b'er to boot, indicating that the carp must be on the munch again. The ladies faired extremely well catching 8 of the total...... Weight totalling 671lb.............. 61lb caught by our youngest angler Harry Gibbs - absolutely fantastic... 45lb 10oz caught by Dee Noyce 43lb 8oz again caught by Dee Noyce.. 42lb caught by Jack Gibbs.. 40lb once again caught by Jack Gibbs - So sorry for father Barry, who is greatly overshadowed by his sons, unfortunately never quite managing a 40 himself.

Sorry for lack of updates lately. We had no-one on the lake last week of June and most of July, we think due to the World Cup, and other lakes have stated the same. Maybe it was a good thing, because the temperatures have been so blisteringly hot that the carp went into deep water, probably eating more of the natural food rather than the bait, therefore fishing has been particularly slow. Cooler conditions towards the end of last week produced a few good sized carp. Graham Dunn and his son Jamie visited us for a couple of weeks during this time, and we also had a couple of friends over. 44lb 8oz caught by Graham Dunn 40lb also caught by Graham Dunn Also 36lb 8oz, 36lb, 35lb 8oz, 35lb 34lb x 3, 32lb, 32lb Common, 31lb 4oz, 31lb, And 25lb 8oz, 25lb.

YET ANOTHER LAKE RECORD - We welcomed two new anglers to the lake this week from Battle in East Sussex. The first few days started great with Dave Rose landing another brilliant new lake record of 63lb, with the weather starting to recover from the awful rain of the previous week. But by Wednesday, scorching heat to 35 degrees switched the carp off from feeding, and there was little activity for the rest of the week. They still managed a good haul of 13 carp equating to 463lb. 63lb caught by Dave Rose 43lb also by Dave Rose along with 39lb 5oz, 35lb 5oz, 35lb, 34lb 8oz and 29lb 4oz, 27lb 4oz, 22lb 8oz.

Rain, rain, rain and more rain with the intermittent storm and a few sunny intervals, but the carp loved it. A new 50lb was caught by Graham Dunn from Kent. He came over on the 22nd May for 1 week's holiday, but stayed another two weeks because he loved it so much. He will be coming again in July, and also in September - he has a very understanding wife, we did not think he was going home at all. But we loved having you Graham, especially Baz, he says he will get a bit of peace now!! Graham actually did not catch many for 2 of the weeks - he caught a 39lb 8oz, 34lb 4oz, 37lb 8oz, and 34lb, and lost a few, but he picked up steam this week to net a stunning 17 carp in all. We had two other new anglers to the lake - Brian Francis and his son James from Essex, who also had a fabulous week, and will definitely be back next year. 29 Carp caught in all this week amounting to 861.26lb.

We welcomed 4 new lads from Surrey this week, and it started slow with rain for 5 days, then turned to blazing heat. A little weight lost after spawning, and Bazza's Bush in the Bay produced the most carp. But another fabulous week with great catches yet again. Around 12 Carp lost, so it could have been an amazing week. Nathan Rising celebrated his fantastic catch list with “champers” on Barby Night - great bunch of lads. 61lb 8oz caught by Nathan Rising - 54lb also caught by Nathan Rising and 45lb 4oz again caught by Nathan Rising. 41lb 2oz caught by Stewart Hunt.

First couple of days were blazing hot, with not much feeding going on due to start of spawning, then it cooled down with a thunderstorm and a few days of rain. Then it hit the big time again with another lake record of 62lb 8oz, and another new 50lb'er.

Our two guys from Liverpool finally arrived after having to cancel their trip in April because of the Volcanic Ash problem. Baz was invited to fish for 2 days, so he set his rods up Monday and Tuesday. He was well chuffed as he caught his personal best of 42lb, along with six other great catches - brilliant for two days fishing. The other guys Steve and Mick faired just as well, and altogether 25 carp were banked with 7 lost. A great catch for 2 guys (+ a little one). They are back in September for a few more lumps.

What a difference a week makes in France when it comes to the weather. We can not believe it went from 30 degrees last week to minus 5 with the wind chill, and even snowed on Wednesday. It was freezing and raining, and we really felt for our poor 5 anglers in their bivvies. They made the most of it though, and Colin made sure they warmed up in the lodge with his steaming and tasty dinners.

FIRST 60LB'ER We are over the moon as the lake has produced our first 60lb'er. Our anglers who have visited us for the past 3 years, have always caught well, but this particular week, they have had the best week ever - absolutely awesome. They had been worried as to whether they would be able to travel here because of the Volcanic Ash problem, but if they had not, they would have missed the week of all weeks. They are absolutely shattered because rather than the carp spawning as we believed they might, they did not stop feeding day and night, hence no good kip for the boys all week. Do you think they care - no way, they are one extremely happy group. They had a catch altogether of 71 Carp to a total of 2,443lb 5oz. 60lb 12oz, 57lb 4oz, 52lb 8oz. The sixteen 40's are:- 47lb 8oz, 44lb 4oz, 43lb x 2, 42lb 8oz x 2, 42lb 4oz, 42lb, 41lb 12oz, 41lb x 3, 40lb 8oz x 2, 40lb x 2.

I think you will all agree, that this is a very impressive catch list, and we hope that it is set to continue throughout the Season. To catch this amount of carp on a 12 acre lake is phenomenal. All the carp are growing at a tremendous rate now, and are in stunning and fantastic condition. So many new 40's as well, so we look forward to a few more 50's and even another 60. Bring it on!

Unfortunately, due to the Volcanic ash, and much to their great disappointment, the anglers booked on Lac Les Pins for this week could not travel. Luckily, we have managed to reallocate them later. Consequently, as the weather was so nice, Colin, Baz, and friend Paul decided to do a two day stint fishing. Catches were pretty good for the two days. 15 Carp caught - 42lb, 39lb, 35lb x 2, 34lb x 2, 33lb Common, 31lb 12oz, 31lb 12oz Common, 27lb x 4, 23lb, 22lb

Weather starting to warm up now, but even though sunny, there was a biting wind all week, and not much activity during the day. It turned out a great week though for our guys from Surrey - regulars for 4 years. They had 19 carp between them, including one new 40lb 4oz beautiful Common. 49lb, 45lb 4oz, 44lb, 43lb 4oz, 42lb 8oz, 41lb 12oz, 40lb 4oz, 40lb 4oz Common, 40lb 1oz 39lb, 38lb 6oz, 34lb 4oz, 33lb 14oz, 32lb 4oz, 31lb 8oz, 30lb 29lb 12oz, 28lb, 24lb 4oz Total weight 707.48lb.

A very slow week again for our guys from the Isle of Wight. Mostly rain with one day of brilliant sun - still not enough to warm the waters. After the worst Winter for 30 years, catch reports are pretty much the same throught this region. Plenty of carp showing but moving now to deeper water. Jamie Kendall still managed to bag a 41lb 14oz and there was nothing under 27lb. 41lb 14oz 38lb 2oz, 38lb, 37lb, 36lb 8oz x 2, 36lb, 35lb, 34lb 8oz, 34lb, 32lb, 31lb 11oz, 30lb 2oz 29lb 14oz, 27lb 14oz. A few fish lost, and a total weight of 517lb. 33oz caught.

A lot more activity this week. Rain most of the time with the odd intermittent sunny interval. We had a great bunch of 4 guys from Darlaston in the Midlands, regulars of ours for 3 years and they always make sure they have the best of times whatever. They were such great fun and had an amazing week, considering it was still one week before the actual start of our Season. Craig McEvoy had four 40's - two new ones, and Richard Shaw also with a new 40. 25 carp in all, equating to 859lb. 44lb 8oz (Mini me), 41lb, 40lb 8oz x 3, 37lb 4oz, 35lb x 2, 34lb 12oz, 33lb 15oz, 33lb 4oz x 2, 33lb 2oz, 33lb, 32lb 12oz, 32lb 4oz, 32lb x 2, 31lb 12oz, 30lb 4oz, 30lb, 29lb 12oz, 28lb 14oz, 27lb, 26lb 4oz. And a stunning original Linea at 12lb 4oz - a beautiful fish.

We started the Season this year 2 weeks early, and after an extended Winter, the lake still had not reached a warm enough temperature for the carp to want to show their faces. Consequently, fishing at the beginning of the week was extremely slow. Then low and behold, Ian Driver had his personal best and the new lake record of 58lb (Matey), then Carl Sullivan went on to have his personal best of 57lb 4oz. A 35lb, a 34lb and a 29lb were also caught. Although not many fish in this week, the guys were ecstatic at their great catches, what they lacked in quantity more than made up for in size.
