What a week the lads had on the Road Lake this week, one customer in particular defiantly stood out from the crowd. That was Simon Greaves. Simon managed an incredible 41 fish haul. An awesome display of angling, from a top bloke.
With a real autumn feel in the air this week we had daytime temperature of around 22 degrees and the nights dropping off to a rather cool 8 degrees. A true sign autumn is here.
We can only start this week off in Tea Party 2, where we had Simon Greaves. As mentioned Simon landed an incredible 41 fish, these being caught from two different areas. The first at 17 wraps to the left hand side of the island and the other at 16 wraps to the right. Simon baited with a mixture of boilie and pellet and baited up with two kilo every evening before dinner. This was then topped up with 100 baits after every fish with the aid of a throwing stick. For the week Simon managed 2 x 40’s both mirrors, Baldrick at 42lb and also Aldwicks at 43lb 10oz respectively. With this he also managed a further 7 x 30’s, with the best a mirror weighing 37.06lb known as Stubby. Rig wise the ever-faithful IQ ‘D’ rig and Banoffee wafter combo doing the business once again! Once again it must be said a truly awesome weeks angling by Simon and his hard work was truly rewarded.
Over in Turtles Corner this week we had Sam Sanders. Sam managed a very creditable 10 fish haul, and unfortunately he did also suffer a few loses, but full credit to him he stuck to his plan and stayed positive and never let his head drop where as other would have crumbled. Sam’s biggest for the week was the ‘mighty’ Petal weighing in at 43lb 10oz's. An absolute amazing looking carp and was also a new PB. Sam also followed this up with a further 2 x 30’s the best a common weighing 35lb 2oz's. For the week Sam used around 30kg of boilies and pellets and baited up with around 3kg every day. Rig wise for the week Sam used balanced bottom baits on a Combi-Rig.

For the week Richard managed nine fish, with the best a 41lb common that was actually a new 40 for the Road Lake, this taking the tally to just under 50 x 40’s for the venue!!!! Truly amazing. Richard fished at 17 wraps and baited daily with a mixture of boilie and pellet using around 25 kilo for the week. Richard also managed 2 x 30’s the best a 33lb 12oz mirror.
