I arrived at Grenville’s just after 7 am there was a strong northerly blowing I was soon walking with a bucket too choose a swim I didn’t get past peg 8 it looked spot on quickly it was back to the van gear dropped. It wasn’t long before I had the marker float out where I wanted it and a kg of element boilies and a kg of mixed pellets with 2 rods close together in the zone. The third was fished on its own off the corner of the island . its was only a few hours later when a fish showed just off the back of the zone a couple of minutes later the middle rod went into meltdown a short but spirited fight a gorgeous 24 lb scaly mirror was held aloft for the camera. With the rod recast I sat back with a cup of tea to celebrate . only an hour later the rod fished on its own signalled a slow but positive bite after a slow and heavy battle finished with a solid 44 lb 4 oz mirror it still looked perfect for more bites but no more bites happened .

Yearly Report

January 1st, 2015 Comments off

What an amazing year it has been for Grenville’s.

In February we launched our own bait GRN10. What an amazing job my dad has done with that! the weight the fish have been producing is unreal! All of you that know my dad knows only the best for his carp!

So far dad, Lisa and I have sold 5040 kg in less than a year!

In April Two tone graced the banks for the first time over 50lb! It was so exciting and I was so chuffed that Phil Calloway was the capturer.

Next month we saw the carp spawning, again we caught the weed and put in the ponds so we can grow the babies on and release into the lake again in a few years.

In the closed season two tone appeared again heavier than last time with a very pleased Trevor Pritchard.

 September we graded the stock ponds, sorting the future stock of grenville’s, and ive got to say the future of grenvilles are so beautiful.

Then again in November two tone and Spencer Powell hit the front cover of carp talk at her biggest weight yet of 56lb 4oz!

It has been an amazing year with the famous two tone, 11 new 40′s and loads of new 30′s and 35′s being produced.

A big congratulations to my dad, Paul on an amazing achievement and I know its just going to get better each year!

Happy New Year Everyone.

Who is going to start the catches off for 2015?

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 +

November 7th, 2014 Comments off

Craig Randle

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.

46lb 12oz

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

November 4th, 2014 Comments off

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

Terry’s catch

October 28th, 2014 Comments off

Grenville’s is still going strong with this beauty being caught early Saturday morning, she was last out in march before spawing  at 41lb! Grenvilles bait seems to be working a treat!

Terry had Three nights fishing in peg 17. The first night he put out 8kgs of bait but no action the second night he put out another 4kg of bait and had a 21lb scaley mirror.  He  put his last 3kg of bait out for the last night and at 6am on the last morning he had two bleeps on his right rod which after a very good fight produced a 45lb 2oz mirror.


Happy Days.
