Week Commencing: Sat 15/08/2015
The Gigantica Road Lake produced 98 fish last week.
The week started really carpy on Saturday and Sunday with the sky overcast and drizzly, then on Monday temperatures began to creep up towards the low thirties. On Wednesday the sky became overcast again and temperatures dropped right down to 17 degrees, in August too. By Friday the weather was hot and sunny again.
Dunkerque, The Cage and Billies had to be closed at the beginning of the week due to a hornets nest being found nearby, thankfully the French fire brigade came to deal with the problem.
Craig Rollings was fishing in Turtles Corner this week and once he was fishing the correct spots he landed a respectable 11 fish considering he reeled in all day and night on Thursday. Craig was using size Korda IQ D rigs with Spicy Active hook bait topped with a 10mm Mainline Pineapple pop up. Craig was baiting up with 1kg of boilie and 3kg of pellet per day over each of his spots to land him 5 twenties and 5 thirties the largest coming in at 37lbs 7oz.
