Easter Weekend

April 25th, 2014 Comments off

Easter Weekend 48 Hours Fishing

After arriving at Grenvilles lake, and looking at the conditions in front of us which were very windy I decided to bait up heavily to start with because if the fish moved in I would be hoping for a few.



First lot of bait was 17 kilos of hemp, 13 kilos of Range Baits creamy nut boilies & chops, and 10 kilos of maize added to this mix was 1 litre of creamy nut syrup. All fished at a 100 yards in a fairly tight area. Hook baits was a Range Baits creamy nut boilie with a Range Baits creamy nut white/yellow pop up and Range Baits rosehip pop ups which we were testing, fished like a snowman, which slowly sank and sat on the bottom.




What we didn’t expect was on the first night we had 4 fish which was great in itself but on the second night it all started at 10:30pm all the way through to 8:00am – another 11 fish with a new PB of 38lb 12oz mirror plus a 37lb 6oz mirror.




List below of catches:




28lb, 29lb 8oz,  22lb 8oz, 27lb, 29lb 8oz, 37lb 6oz, 26lb, 23lb, 29lb 8oz, 20lb, 27lb, 20lb 8oz, 27lb, 23lb 8oz, 38lb 12oz all mirrors




It turned out to be the best fishing trip ever sharing it with my two girls. Perfect.

Grenville’s is a dog friendly lake however some members are not picking up after their pooch!

It is not up to other members to pick up others rubbish.

The dogs seem to be messing not just in their swim but walking 2 or 3 swims down and the owners are not going with them or checking to clear it up.

This is a warning that dogs will be banned if this keeps up.

Please do not let this happen, it is not fair that one or two members will ruin this dog friendly environment for others.

Easter catches

It was great turning up on a Sunday for a change. 6, 8, 12 ,14 and 17 were all free; perhaps too much choice. In the end a few cooperative carp stuck there heads out and 8 it was to be. A satisfying solid donk as the lead hit the bottom told me I was in the right place. A rock hard clear spot on the tail end of a weed bed at just over 100 yards produced this 39 lb 4 oz beauty. It fell to a single Quest Baits Magnum White pop up fished over a bed of 10 and 15mm Chilli Chocolate boilies with Mini Mixed Pellets. My biggest fish from Grenville so far and my first fish hooked on a Multi Rig. It certainly made facing the freezing cold North Westerly worthwhile.
