10 years!

November 28th, 2013 Comments off

10 Years ago today the first carp entered a home which had protection from predators, food given everyday, respect from it’s captures and in return these carp showed their beauty on the banks of their home, Grenville’s.

10 years ago today the first batch of carp were released into the 72 acre water which they call home, a total of 100, with biggest one of 46lb 5oz showing it’s gratitude, to of been lucky enough to be picked as the stock, of which I think personally is the greatest fish venue in the country.

Congratulations dad on making your dream come true and letting myself and the members to be apart of it.

The weekend started off looking pretty dim with temperatures plummeting to 3 degrees C and skies clearing, however the carp gods were on our side as cloud cover rolled in slowly lifting temperatures to a tropical 7-8 degrees C. The wind didn’t know which way it wanted to blow but it was light as it drifted from SW to W to NW and onto SE throughout the weekend. The first night saw all the fish on the opposite bank leaving me thinking I was in the wrong spot, but the Grenville carp can be difficult to predict and on the first morning a few found my bait and I ended up landing 4 fish in 2 hours! Everything then went quiet again. The second night saw me bank a lovely long 33lb mirror but other than that the whole lake was quiet.

 

Having packed up all my gear, I sat out the last few hours of my session on the platform next to my rods. A run out of the blue immediately led to a hook pull. A quick recast to the same spot with a fresh rig and 10 minutes later I had a one toner on the same rod that left me connected with a Grenville leviathan. The fish stuck to the bottom and would not move and attempted to bury itself into every dying weedbed, but after a 30 minute battle of which 10 minutes was under the rod tip, the fish slipped into my net. With now aching arms the lump was lifted onto the scales where it settled at 42lb 4oz, my second 40+ in two trips and a new PB. I could not help thinking that if I hadn’t pulled out of the previous run then I probably would not have caught this fish. We all need a bit of luck at times!!

40+ from the weekend

November 4th, 2013 Comments off

Paul Miller

This weekend turned up an amazing coincidence that you could not bet on to happen. On the third on November I landed the 100th 30lb+ fish of the current Grenville season, which was the 38-4 shown below. Nothing amazing there, but last year I also landed the 100th 30lb+ fish of the season, from the same swim on the same date. The odds of the same person catching the 100th 30lb+ fish in a season on the same day from the same swim in two consecutive years must be incredible. This capped off what was a superb and memorable session.

karls cabin session

November 4th, 2013 Comments off

Well… My 48 hr trip in the cabin got off to a rather special start!! On Arrival I noticed the middle pole going crazy, so I plopped out two hook baits to try and keep disturbance to a minimum. Within 20 minutes I had my first Grenville carp of the session, on the bank, weighing in at 31.12lb, great start, but things got a whole lot better when I slipped the net under the second of my trip, this one weighing in at 35.8. When paul came round to take the photographs, I said ” anything else is a bonus” and I really did mean that! I went on to land three other carp weighing 27.8/28(it was the get a true reading in the wind!),27.4 and 19.4. It really shows u how prolific the cabin can be! What a great session for the first week in November!
