just had a great weekend down at grenville, breaking my pb twice! arrived friday late afternoon and had a quick ride around the lake to see if i could see any fish showing. didnt really see much but fancied being down the bottom end as i new the wind would be blowing down there at some point during the weekend. i also fancied being nearer the deeper water. so went for peg 21, giving the edge of the deep bowl and shallower water if the moved into it.
friday night got 4 kilo of bait out over into the deeper water. had a liner on dark so new fish were about, but no runs. i then heard paul allgood had caught friday night out in the deep water, so moved my rods out a bit further into slightly deeper water. i put another 4 kilo of bait over this area.
sunday morning at first light, i had just woke up. watching the very misty lake my left hand rod lifted and tightened up. straight out and watching it, but nothing was happening. feeling it might be trying to throw the hook i hit into it. and straight away i new a fish was on, it slowly came up the shelf and then all hell broke loose as it went on run after run.  the lead had released so it was fighting well up in the water. after a good fight i eventually got it to the net, and over it went in. just as it went over the cord, my middle rod started ripping line off! net down, and game on! this fish went on a super charged run ripping over 20 yards off straight away. again the lead discharged but this fish was trying its best to cause me problems. it had kited right and round the rushes, but i eventually got it back. just as it neared the platform it went and picked my third up! and somehow this tangled making it very hard to get any closer to me. i slowly walked back and it came in, i had to bite my line on my third rod to get some slack, but i thankfully netted a stunning fish.
two nets in the water both containing big fish, i could see the first one was a lot smaller than the second one.  and i new the first one was an upper 30! this one was then duly dealt with and weighed in at 38.10, a truly lovely mirror and breaking my pb my a pound.
we called paul for the second who duly arrived and weighed the fish in at 43.11, wow, blown away. another pb, and my first uk 40. the lads have done me proud with the photos and i must say big thanks to the lads who helped me that morning. stunning fishing, from a stunning lake. many thanks, its made my year.

Another 40 +

Arriving at the lake Friday lunchtime i had a slow walk round the lake undecided where to sit for my 72 hour stay. A fairly warm southerly wind was blowing, quite strongly at times, so i chose to fish into the wind. 3 rods were positioned between 65 – 80 yards with 5 kilo of lake boilie spombed over my snowman combi rigs. 48 hours passed with no signs of a carp, but just before first light on the final morning my middle rod at 70 yards in 32ft of water burst into life, stripping line from the reel for a further 40 yards once attached to a very powerful carp, i knew it was a good fish, after a good battle there in the net lay my prize, the scales settled on 46lb 12oz, my first UK 40 and a new PB.

I had another mad session in peg 14 catching 9 fish using 10kg of boilies over 72 hours.  I fished the first night in peg 12 after seeing fish show at range but moved in the morning into peg 14 after a biteless night.  I cast 3 singles out and within a hour I had my first take, 14lb.  I put out a few kilos of bait and just after the light went I had a take over the bait, halfway through playing the 30.10 the other rod over bait was screaming off and stopping for nothing.  Eventually I landed the first picked up the other rod and after a lengthy scrap landed a 33.10.  During the night one of the rods over the bait was away again and I landed a 27.06 scaley followed by a 25lb Common in the morning.  At around midday I topped up the swim and within a couple of hours I had 2 doubles 18 & 14.  During the late afternoon I put the rest of my bait in and just into dark I caught a 30.03 over the baited area.  I ended up with no more fish in the night and Craig telling me about his 46.12 getting caught in deep water I reeled in the left rod, changed rigs and launched it as hard as I could approx 110 yards into the deep water out to the right.  With only a couple of hours left the recast rod was away within 20 minutes of the cast and after another good scrap I landed a 34.13.

first 30+ common of Grenvilles

Congratulations to Steve Cox

on this stunning catch

Arriving on the Friday for a 48 hour session, I decided to fish Swim 6 as it’s a swim I have only fished the once before and it does have a good history of producing big fish. As I was setting up my dad turned to me and said “we’ve got to buy some of Paul’s bait and put a bed of that out there”. I replied “have you got any cash?” So off my dad went in pursuit of some of the bait. Paul Allgood duly arrived 10 mins later with 5k of the impressive GR10 boilies and provided me with some excellent pointers on where to fish – Thanks Paul. All 3 rods were fished at range and 5k of boilies were deposited over the top. On the Sunday morning, fish were showing over the bait but without any luck I was ready to call it a day in the early afternoon when my dad suggested “lets just give it another 20 mins. Well, 10 mins later my middle rod just screamed off, the fish took 20-30 yards of line when I first connected into it. After a terrific fight, a big common came to the surface and she duly went 31lb 5oz on the scales, I was over the moon – Grenville had it’s very first 30lb Common, it was an honor to catch such a beautiful fish from such a fantastic venue.


Thank you for making Grenville what it is !!!  SPECIAL
