24 April – 1 May
A good number of fish banked this week but it was the average size that was pleasing to see. The catfish were extremely active, and as comments seen on forums about other site they were giving good sport with some real monsters landed.
The best carp of the week was a superb 48lb common, a magnificent fish. Other large specimens included commons of 46lb 2oz; 38lb; 30lb 8oz. As for the mirrors the largest went 46lb followed by 3 fish of 39lb+; 30lb; 25lb; 22lb; 22lb.
The largest of the catfish went 81lb with others of 77lb; 77lb; 57lb 2oz.
Successful technique was pellets, hemp and the Croix Blanche Special boilies fished snowman style.
