Week Commencing: Sat 04/07/2015
Well would you believe we are half way through the year already how time fly’s. This week the temperature has been up to 35 degrees and on Tuesday there was a massive storm, it only lasted an hour or so but it helped because it cooled the lake down a few degrees, which braught the carp on to feed. The water temperature is 22 degrees.
Dispite the fish spawning towards the end of the week, there has still been some good fish out. With a total of 63 carp being landed including 2x40s to 42lb12oz, 17x30s to 36lb 8oz and the rest were made up with doubles and 20s.
Paul Lee in Decoy landed nine carp with a cracking 42lb12oz mirror, 2x30s to 31lb 8oz, 3x20s and 3 doubles not a bad weeks fishing, good angling mate. All three rods were wrapped up at 16RL and he was spoding out 2kg of Hybrid boilies and 1kg of Gigantica 10mm pellets over all three rods at 4pm then not casting back out till after dinner. By resting the swim it allows the carp to move in and have a feed. He would put 1kg of boilies out after each fish, just to top the baited spot backup. He was using the IQ D rig and the KD rig with a bottom bait tipped witha bit of plastic corn as his hook bait.
Danny Armitage in T1 had eight carp the biggest was a stunning 40lb 2oz mirror, he also had mirrors of 36lb 8oz and 26lb 8oz plus five doubles. Two rods were wrapped up at 18RL and cast towards Turtles Corner with the 3rd rod wrapped up at 10RL and cast to a buoy on the far bank. He was spoding out every day with a kilo of Mainline Cell and a kilo of Hybrid boilies, on his short spot he was using his throwing stick and he was using the KD rig with 20lb N-Trap Soft to a size 2 Korda Krank with Mainline Hybrid wafters doing the job for Danny.
Joshua Walsh in The Cage had a 33lb mirror and two doubles. He had all three rods wrapped up at 16RL which were cast straight out in front and he used 15kg of boilies and 15kg of Gigantica pellets throughout the week. Using a D rig with a Gigantica Banoffee wafter was Joshuas rig choice for the week.
Josh Edwards was in T2 he had 4x20 to 26lb 4oz and eight doubles. He used 20kg of boilies and 6kg of the Gigantica pellets throughout the week and had two rods cast 18RL towards the tree line on the far bank with the other one cast 10RL straight out towards the life buoy. Josh used the IQ D rig with a Banoffee wafter on two rods and on the other rod he used a D rig with 8 inches of N-Trap Soft with a size 6 Korda Kurv hook with a wafter as his hook bait.
Kojak was in Turtles Corner and had nice mirrors of 34lb and 33lb along with 5x20s and seven doubles through out the week. He was casting two rods 18RL towards the gap inbetween the island and the bank and baiting up every day with 5kg of boilies with his throwing stick. The IQ D rig with a Banoffee wafter was his rig choice for the week.
Danny Hill was in Brambles he had 3x30s to 33lb, 4x20s and two doubles. All three rods were wrapped up at 16RL and cast straight out. Over the course of the week he used 15kg of Mainline Hybrid boilies and 25kg of our Gigantica pellets over all three rods. The KD rig with a Hybrid boilie tipped with fake corn did the trick for Danny.
Adam Johnston was set up in Dunkerque and he managed to land 3x20s and eight double’s for the week with two rods clipped up at 3RL and cast inline with T2. He baited up every day with 3kg of boilies and 1kg of Gigantica pellets. A simple D rig with a size 6 Korda Kurv with a Banoffee wafter done the job for Adam.

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. Also please 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.
