New member Andy Sewell has wasted no time at all in settling right into Grenville, with four thirties under his belt so far he has just notched up yet another one. This time from swim 37. He arrived on the Friday and fished through the weekend for two fish a 9lb mirror and a 30’4 oz to boot.
The weekend threw up some very mixed results from the visiting anglers. There were a few fish caught and these seem to have been from most areas of the lake. We also had a good deal of members who unfortunately did not manage to catch this weekend, hard luck all your time will come.
Amongst those that caught were…
Gary Kimbell Gary chose to fish at the top end of the lake this week for a change of scenery and pulled his usual rabbit out of the bag, or should that read carp out of the lake. He caught two fish weighing in at 23’8 oz and 28’14. Well done once again Gary.
Keith Regular weekender Keith fished the usually unfancied peg 4 this weekend after seeing fish at range. He managed to catch one weighing 21’7 oz’s, so maybe this swim wont be unfancied for much longer. Good work Keith.
Andy Sewell New Member Andy continues his run of fish, having visited most weekends he has managed to winkle one or two out most weekends. This weekend he was in the ever popular swim 33. His catch included 2 fish of 16lb and a mirror of 24’9 oz’s.
Good consistent angling mate.
Shaun Harrison Shaun fished from peg 37 this week and had three fish for his efforts, He also lost a good fish on the last day. The fish he caught were an 8’15 oz’s common, a 19’14 oz and 23’4 oz mirrors. Well done Shaun, Brook continues to work her magic I see.
Chris Oakley Chris could only manage the one night this weekend arriving on the Sunday. He followed Andy into 33 and managed to fool two doubles both weighing 19lb into taking the bait.
A very slow weekend by Grenville standards. A combination of Full moon, high pressure, quite a few anglers on the lake, and of course the inevitable hatches which seem so abundant at this time of the year all gave the attendant anglers plenty of excuses for their poor showing. A total of 18 anglers graced the banks on Friday night, with only a few managing to wet their nets unfortunately.
Amongst those to catch were,
Mick Brooks, Fair play Mick after being repeatedly wiped out by weedbeds the size of your average family car and when all seemed against him he managed a small common of 11lb’s. Not quite what he had in mind but gratefully recieved in the circumstances.
Gary Kimbell, Gary set his stall out in swim 5 hoping to bag one of the big girls which had frequented this area for the previous few days. He was troubled less than Mick by the weed, but still had to be aware as the weed came away from the plateu in the strong South Westerly. Gary landed a mirror of 24’8 oz’s and lost another good fish at the net. Better luck next time Gary.
Andy Sewell, Andy had the pleasure of catching the most fish of the weekend……Two !! Unfortunately they were not of any great size, both being doubles, a 16’8 oz mirror and a 12’12 oz common. but again were much better than a blank. I am sure the next two will be bigger Andy.
Tim Fromant, Tim was a late arrival and decided to give swim 3 another go after doing relatively well there the previous weekend. He found the going tough like most and was pleased to catch a mirror of 21’8 oz’s. Despite watching the water like a hawk no more fish visited the vicinity and Tim had to make do with just the one fish to show for his efforts.
Phil Calloway, Phil fished swim 33 on the back of what wind the was. he fished dilligently as always working hard to make the swim produce. He managed on the second night of his stay to hook and land a mirror of 20’4 oz’s. He hung on a little on the Sunday in the hope that another would take the bait, but despite a bait in both shallow and deeper water no more fish were to fall to his rods.
New member Andy Sewell, fished swim 12 last weekend with his friend Garyin the swimnext door (14). Between them they managed an incredible catch. They caught fairly regularly throughtout the weekend as the fish moved off behind the island and then moved back along the bar between the two swims. Andy’s catch was very much a mixed bag of fish as he had 6 doubles, 3 twenties, and 4 thirties.
It was made up as follows,
6 doubles, 22’8 oz’s, 22lb, 27lb, 30’12 oz’s, 32’8 oz’s, 33lb, and 33’8 oz’s. The four thirties are pictured below.
Fine angling Andy, I just hope you dont expect it to be like that every trip 🙂
