Another impressive haul of fish this week, a total of 56 fish coming out from all over the lake, which is good news. The weather was up and down all week, we had warm temperatures and beautiful sunshine followed by heavy rain showers.

Neil French was bivvied up in the Single Boards swim for the week. Again, like most who visit, Neil fished IQ D rigs but his was tied with Krank hooks insted of the more popular Kurv hooks, and was casting 10 wraps straight out in front of his swim. Neil landed a very nice 25lb common during his week.

Jeffrey Hendrix started the week Fishing from The Poo where he was fishing 15 wraps out over boilie and pellet. Then on the Monday moved into The Brambles swim. In here Jeffrey was fishing out on the 21 wrap spot straight out in front. An area that has been producing fish of late. Jeffery ended up landed 12 fish throughout the week including a 24lb common on Wednesday.
Andy Dalton returned this week and picked to fish in the newly formed swim, named The Beach. This new swim is based at the top right corner of the lake as you look at the map of the venue and has proved to be a popular swim already. Andy was using IQ D rigs and Banoffee wafters, a winning combination. Fishing his three rods with the left hand rod cast towards the left hand margin, middle rod 12 wraps straight out in front and finally his right hand rod seven wraps to his right just off the marginal shelf. Andy managed to have 11 runs this week and landed seven of these, including the very impressive Big Mac at 48lb. This fish seems to like this area.

David was fishing with blow back rigs doubled up with Mainline Hybrid wafters fished over Cell boilie and pellet. David landed seven fish including an impressive 40lb 8oz mirror, known as Big Jon, on the Monday morning.
