This week the temperature has been up to 29 degrees, but with a nice cool wind coming from the north it kept all the lads nice and cool throughout the day. The water temperature was at 20 degrees.
Due to the fish spawning again it wasn't a bad week on the Road Lake with a total of 76 carp being landed, including 2x40s to 46lb10oz and 17x30s to 39lb with the rest being made up with doubles and 20s.
Robert Barns in Decoy landed 23 carp, including 7x30s to 39lb, 7x 20s and 9 doubles. Not a bad weeks fishing, good angling mate. All 3 rods were wrapped up at 17RL and he was spoding out 2kg of boilies and 1kg of Gigantica 10mm pellets over all 3 rods at 4pm then not casting back out until after dinner. By resting the swim it allows the carp to move in and feed. He would put 6 spods out after each fish, just to top the baited spot backup. He was using the IQ D rig and the KD rig with a 18mm wafters as his hook baits.
Mateusz Malencavh in TP1 had the biggest common in the Road Lake at 46lb 10oz and what a lump it is. He also managed 3x30s to 32lb 10oz, 5x20s and 4 doubles. 2 rods were wrapped up at 11RL, which were cast towards the left hand side of Shingles and the 3rd rod was wrapped up at 16RL and cast to the left hand side of the island. He was baiting up every day with 2kg of Mainline Baits Spicy Active boilies and 1kg of Gigantica 10mm pellets. The IQ D rig with a size 6 Korda Kurv with a Gigantica Hybrid cork dust wafter done the job for Mateusz.
Richard Amos in The Cage had 2x30s to 37lb, 5x20s to 29lb 4oz and 4 doubles. He had all 3 rods wrapped up at 11RL and cast straight out in front of him. He used 15kg of Spicy Active boilies and 15kg of Gigantica pellets through out the week, with a D rig and a Gigantica Banoffee wafter being Richards rig choice for the week.
Rob Marshall was in Billys and he had 3x30s to 33lb 4oz, 4x20s to 27lb 6oz and 4 doubles. He used 15kg of the Spicy Active boilies and 6kg of the Gigantica pellets throughout the week. His first rod was cast 14RL towards the tree line and the other 2 were cast 17RL straightout towards TP2. Rob used the KD rig with a Banoffee wafter on one rod and on the other 2 rods he used a D rig with 8 inches of N-Trap Sort with a size 6 Korda Kurv hook along with a Spicy Active wafter hook bait.
Adrian Guy was in Turtles Corner and he had a nice 42lb 12oz mirror along with a 32b 15oz common plus 7 doubles throughout the week. He was casting 15RL towards TP1 and TP2, and baiting up every day with 3kg of boilies and 2kg of pellets. The D rig with a Banoffee wafter was his rig choice for the week.
Stuart Coleman was in Brambles he had a 32lb 4oz mirror along with 5 doubles. All 3 rods were wrapped up at 12RL and cast towards Billys, he put 10 spods consisting of a mixture of boilies and pellets out over each rod twice a day. Again the KD rig with a Spicy Active wafter done the trick for Stuart.
Dave Hicken was set up in Dunkerque. He had 2x20s and one double for the week, all 3 rods were clipped up at 10RL and cast inline with TP2. He baited up every day with 2kg of Mainline Spicy Active boilies and 2kg of Gigantica pellets. A simple combi rig with a size 6 Korda Kurv and a Banoffee wafter done the job for Dave.

Well that’s it for another week here at Gigantica not a bad week with 76 carp being landed and we had a great bunch of lads here this week. Hope to see you all here next year.
Just a quick up date to all coming to Gigantica Road Lake this year, we no longer supply scales, so please can you bring your own set.
Please also take note but unfortunately due to having problems disposing of glass bottles we no longer have bottled beer on site and have moved onto cans, so if you bring or buy glass bottles you will have to dispose of them yourself. Thank you in advanced for your understanding and co-operation.
