Even more 40′s

August 3rd, 2015 Comments off
Mark Had a fantastic session last week
after a little bit of technical difficulty on my end i can finally share his pictures and story.
I’ve had the most amazing result and great experience down at Grenville, breaking my PB twice!
On my arrival at Grenville’s on Wednesday the lake wasn’t too busy overall and a good walk around would be on the cards but like mostly all anglers on the drive down all I could think about was which bank would suit the conditions and where would the carp would be, so the bank I had in mind was slightly busy with pegs 3, 5, 6, 8 taken although 4 was free! As I stopped and chatted with member John Igglesden in peg 5 and congratulated him on his few fish including a 40 it was evident that such a huge percentage of fish were still out in front towards the cabin. Over a coffee along with another member we watched a few fish show at range as the wind gathered a little strength into his bank, so I was almost sold on peg 4 too be honest! However, the cabin was not being fished from what we could see and I’m not sure who first suggested asking Paul if it was free from bookings, it was a decision worth looking into and perhaps treating myself too!
The news was good and to get myself around there and get settled in, initially there was no need to bait up as it was taken care of earlier that morning with Paul’s usual daily feed so it was the plan to get the rods out fast. There are two anchored markers in front of the main swim, one at approximately 70 yards to the left and one at around 100…I cast one single pop up to the left and the other two baited rigs either side of the distance spot. The left hand marker was at a range where I could just bait up when I wanted using the stick only whilst the other would be later on in the 48 hours I had using the spomb.
A few hours passed and all seemed quiet then caught the marker at range knocking and shortly after the sound of delight as the alarm sounded and a belting take from the middle rod! After a well accounted battle a lovely scaly carp of 27.5 weighed and photographed and from then on how little did I know what would unfold over the following 48 hours!?
I netted nine out of eleven runs, with the smallest a pristine scaly 20.2 and the other eight all over 27lb including three superb commons the largest at just under 29lb, along with a 35.14, 40.4 and 41.0.
I’m totally blown away with not just only getting my first 40 but to have two will have given me a session to remember and a reminder how fortunate we are to be on such a superb lake! Thank you so very much to Paul for the opportunity and to Stew Boyden close by to lend a hand! Pursuit Baits ‘Launch’ pop ups used apart from two which were caught on a new test bait…over Grenvilles very own food bait plus Pursuit Baits ‘BCM’ in 20′s via the stick and 10mm baits via the spomb.

Growth Graphs

July 23rd, 2015 Comments off

A new feature has recently been added to the website in the form of carp growth graphs, these have been generated for each fish that appears on the 35+ wall. The graphs can be found on the left hand side under each fish’s identification colour/number. By clicking on the graph symbol a pdf file will open that shows all captures of that fish over 30lbs. This will give members an appreciation of how each fish is growing and how it is affected by spawning etc. Each graph is being kept up-to-date as captures are made around the lake.

When viewing the graphs you will see the initial stocking date and the weight of the fish. The blank entries show one gap for each year until the fish was caught at 30+. The bottom axis shows the date of all captures above 30+ , again any gaps indicate years when the fish was not caught. It can be clearly seen that many fish go missing for 2 or 3 years between captures, with one or two fish having ‘vanished’ for up to 5 years before being caught again. There are many fish still missing since their last capture and there may be some nice surprises for some lucky members when they do show up.

Some interesting statistics have been identified in the making of the graphs:

-          The total number of different 30+ fish caught from the lake is 263. Although some fish may have died, there are constantly new 30’s being caught and identified and therefore the estimated stock of 30+ fish can be comfortably claimed as being around the 250-260 mark. However with ever increasing numbers of upper 20’s now being caught, this number will increase in the coming seasons.

-          The fastest growing fish made the 30+ milestone in 2009, around 4 years after being stocked at 4-08!

-          Some members have a misconception that most of the big fish are caught from the cabin swim. Although not detailed on the graphs, an analysis of all catch records has indicated that this is not the case. In fact only 20% of fish captures come from this swim (20.3% to be exact!). 80% of all big fish captures therefore come from the rest of the lake. It is however the most consistent single swim.

-          The most caught 30+ in the lake is Green 30, which usually gets caught 3-5 times a year. This fish is also a big spawner and can loose 5-6lb in weight through spawn. This year has seen it drop from just shy of 40 down to 34, however you can see from the graph that this is normal for this fish and it will recover the weight fairly quickly. In 2012 before it spawned it weighed 37lb, dropping to 32lb and recovering to this year’s pre spawn weight of just under 40. If this fish follows the same pattern then within the next few years it should be around the 43lb mark.

-          The graphs are only shown for those fish on the 35+ wall, however the data is being monitored for all 30+ fish to hopefully gain a better understanding of the condition of the fish.

-          The introduction of food bait to the lake appears to have resulted in an increase in fish growth rates and the fish looking healthier, it all bodes well for the future.

There are still a number of 30’s that have been caught that remain unidentified because of poor photographs. Members can help with this, particularly on sparsely scaled fish, by providing clear photos around the tail and dorsal line, to aid identification.

Hope you enjoy reading the graphs and find them useful.
