Bailiff Comments

Week Commencing: Sat 06/05/2017

What a week on the Road lake with 11 x 40s being landed, and a new 50lb carp, which gives us a total of Eight carp over Fifty pounds now in the Road Lake, and some new forties being landed making a total of sixty forties, this lake is going from strength to strength.

Again a typical spring week here with it being rather unsettled with wind, rain and even the odd bit of sunshine thrown in for good measures.  Maximum temp for the week was a pleasant 22 degrees going down to 9 degrees at night. A gentle westerly breeze blew for the majority of the week switching to a southerly on Friday afternoon, water temperature is at 15 degrees.

We had the Tillman family out this week all the way from Germany, they were the only Three on the lake. So Buzz the gigantica bailiff decided to have a go and see if he could winkle a few carp out.

Sven Tillman decided to go into Turtles Corner as there was a good few fish out of there the week before, he started of by casting his right hand rod at only 8 wrap inline with Tea Party 1, as a carp showed there as he was setting up, it wasn’t long before he was into his first carp of the session, and wow what a fish to start the week a cracking 44lb5oz mirror, and it was only cast out in front at 32 yards. Sven had it on an IQ D rig with a size 4 korda Kurv hook with a Gigantica Fyber wafter which was soaked in the New Butter Corn Goo. He was putting out about fifty boilies with his throwing stick around the area. He decided to put his left hand rod at 15 wrap along the left hand margin, and his middle rod was cast at 18 wraps inline with the island, the next day Sven had a 45lb mirror and a 36lb mirror both from the 8 wrap spot and again on the IQ D rig with a Fyber wafter soaked in Butter Corn Goo. Over the week Sven landed 14 carp.

Uwe Tillman went into Tea party 1 had a total of 9 carp for the week, he had a nice 48lb common called Nailed and another 4 x 40s to 45lb,2 x 30’s to 33lb 2x 20’s, they all come on IQ D rig with a size 4 Korda Kurv hook with a Gigantica Fyber wafter which was soaked in the New Butter Corn Goo. He used a total of 15kg off boilies over all 3 rods during the week. His first rod was cast at 10 wrap just over the weed bed and in- line with the corner of Single Boards. The other two rods were cast to the right of the swim inline of Turtles Corner at 20 wraps and Uwe was baiting up with his throwing stick around 50 boilies after every fish.

Claus Tillman went into Tea Part 2, over the course of the week he had a total of 9 carp, a cracking 42lb mirror, a 35lb mirror and 7 x 20s to 28lb, he was casting 2 rods over to the Far margin just left of the island, and his third rod was cast at 16 wraps inline with Billys swim, all of his carp come on the IQ D rig with a Fyber wafter which was Soaked in the Butter Corn Goo, over the week he used 15kg of boilies.

Julian one of the French Korda reps popped in for a 48-hour session, he dropped into Bachelier's.Over the 48 hours Julian landed 9 carp to 50lb. he was casting over to the left hand margin at 18 wrap, he was then going round and baiting up the spot with 1kg of a mix of hemp and maze, then after every fish, a simple IQ D rig with two pieces of Korda IB slow sinking maze was doing the business.

Buzz the Gigantica Bailif was also having a go on the road lake this week, he started off in The Decoy swim, after a couple nights of no action he decided to go into Bachelier’s after Julian had to go back to work. He started to fish the same area as Julian, it wasn’t long before he was into his first carp, over the next four nights he managed to land 9 carp to 46lb8oz, he was also using the IQ D rig with a size 4 korda Kurv hook and three grans of Korda’s slow sinking maze which has been soaked in some Pineapple Goo, buzz was baiting up after every fish with half a kilo of hemp and maze mix with some chopped up Mainline Fyber Boilies.
