Bailiff Comments

Another week commences on the Road lake with the temperature going up to the 30’s creating a real summer holiday feel to the week. The evening temperature was a more comfortable 16 degrees, and the lake temperature was up to 20 degrees now, with a steady westerly wind all week.

First up is Phil Brown fishing in Turtle Corner; he decided to fish all three rods straight out at 16 wraps. Phil was using the IQ-D rig with a Mainline Link wafter as his hook bait, which was fished over 5kg of Mainline Link boilies. It didn’t take long for him to land his first fish, and what a cracker it was. A 43lb Common called "Twin Patch". Phil went on to have 4 x 20’s to 25lb by the end of the week.

Steven Wait went into Dunkerque, and fished two rods at 18 wraps towards the old Tea Party 2 swim, and his right hand rod was cast at 15 wraps straight out. Steve was baiting each area with a few kilos of the Mainline Link and Fyber boilies. It didn’t take long before he was into his first fish of the week, a pretty 19lb Mirror. It went quiet for the next few days then on Wednesday he goes and lands a cracking 47lb Mirror called "Toucan", and smashing his PB by 21lb. The next morning Steve was in again this time with a 38lb 6oz Mirror, what a week for Steve, he caught five fish but smashed his PB twice.

Thomas Judge went into the The beach, with the high temperatures this week he decided to use zigs with black foam, at depths of 11ft, 14ft and 16ft as there were carp showing all over his swim. It wasn’t long before he was into his first fish of the week a 31lb Mirror, not long after that he lands a 42lb mirror called “Swaley’s Mirror”, which was a new PB for Thomas. The next afternoon he was in again this time with 43lb 8oz Mirror, which was an unnamed fish, so he called it “The Judge”, which broke his PB again. Thomas went on to have 8 x 30’s, 4 x 20’s and 5 doubles by the end of the week.

Richard Lewis went into Billy’s, and found a nice area over to the right hand margin at 16 wraps just off the overhanging tree, and the other two rods were cast out at 20 wraps in-line with the gap in the trees. Richard was using an IQ D-Rig with a bottom bait boilie as his hook bait. He baited up every day with 5kg of Baitworks Royal Marine Boilies. Over the week Rich had 3 x 30’s to 39lb, 3 x 20’s and 3 doubles.

Roy Addy went into The Poo, and decided to put one rod straight out at 12 wraps inline with Shingles, the second rod was cast at 9 wraps inline with Double Boards, and his third rod was cast at 7 wraps in-line with Turtles Corner. It wasn’t until Thursday that he was into his first carp of the week a stunning 20lb Mirror. Shortly after that, he landed a 26lb mirror. The next morning Roy was in again this time it was a cracking 41lb Mirror, which turned out to be a new 40lb fish, so he got to name the fish, and called it “The Supervisor”. This fell to an IQ D-Rig with a Mainline Active 8 boilie which was fished over a few kilos of Active-8 boilies.  

Scott Wykes went into Decoy. He had two rods straight out at 16 wraps and his other rod was cast down over towards the bund at 16 wraps. Scott was baiting up every day with 3kg of Baitworks Royal Marine boilies, and was using an IQ D-Rig with Royal Marine boilie as his hook bait. Through out the week Scott had a total of 4 carp, a cracking 41lb 8oz mirror called “Cracker” which was a new PB for Scott. He also had a 34lb mirror, 22lb mirror and a double.

Adam Scott went into the Goo, he was fishing all three rods straight out at 10 wraps, and baiting up every day with a few kilos of Mainline Active-8 boilies. It wasn’t till Friday that Adam had his first take of the week, and what a fish to start of with, a cracking 51lb Common which turned out to be a new unnamed 50 for the Road lake, so he decided to call it “Troy’s Chunk”. That afternoon he went on to have a 37lb Mirror and a double. All of his carp came on an IQ D- Rig with an Active-8 boilie as his hook bait.

Mark Deeprose was set up in Shingles, he was fishing all 3 rods towards the island at 16 wraps and baiting every day with 2 kilos of Mainline Link boilies. After a few days he saw a few fish crashing down the left hand margin so he decided to put one of his rods down there, it didn’t take long before mark was into his first fish of the session a 22lb mirror, he also had a 20lb Mirror towards the end of the week. Mark was using the IQ D-Rig with a Banoffee Wafter as his hook bait.

It was a tough week for a few of the other lads, Dave Streffords was fishing inBrambles, he started fishing on the bottom for the first couple days but after no action he went onto zigs and at a depth of 11ft, amd managed a 24lb 8oz Mirror.  Lee Warner went into the cage and caught himself a couple 20’s. Urch was fishing in Tea party 1 and he manage to trip up a couple of 20’s.

 

Please remember that we only allow the pellets that we supply to be used at the lake, these cost €60 for a 25kg sack, and can be reserved by calling us in advance of your trip ready for your arrival. 10kg bags of frozen boilies from Mainline can also be reserved and purchased onsite, again you can call to reserve these too.  We have an onsite tackle shop as well stocking a selection of tackle from Korda that can be purchased during your stay should you need anything whilst at Gigantica.
