February 20th, 2012 Comments off

 It was great to see so many members down this weekend even if it did end up as a bit of a social instead of catching carp!

I wonder how many members will be down this weekend with the temperatures apparently rising?

 

For all at the beginning of the waiting list, we will be approaching you about places in March when we know who will be leaving.

 

Thank you.

Monster Chub

February 4th, 2011 Comments off

Videos of Jamie’s 8lb 8oz chub can be watched here

jamiechub

Paul asks that any large chub caught be accurately weighed and photographed. These chub are enormous even on a national scale and we are keen to see how many individual monsters are present and just how close to the record they might go. We know of two 8lb+ fish so far, but other very large fish have been returned unweighed.

New Stock Arrive

November 10th, 2010 Comments off

We had the first batch of fish arrive to be placed into the stock pond today. They were delivered by Fishers pond around lunchtime. 26 of the prettiest little scaly carp you ever saw. With an average weight of approx 4lb -5lb Paul is hopeful of getting them to healthy mid doubles prior to introduction to the main lake next Autumn. The Fish had been hand picked from 400 fish only that morning. Viney, Brian and Yaz were all in attendance to help get them photographed and into the new pond as soon as was possible. Having received a number of stockings now we have it down to an art and had the 26 fish photographed both sides and into the pond within a very short period of time.

Electric Fence fitted to New Stock Pond

October 27th, 2010 Comments off

With the stock pond a few months old now Paul and his gorgeous daughter Yaz have been hard at work erecting an electric fence around the perimeter of it. Once the posts were in they wrapped the wire around and fixed securely. Dennis was then called in to wire up and connect the fence to the electrics, and finally it was switched on. In full working order now the fence is obviously to protect the valuable stock of fish which is due to arrive on 9th November. These will be quarantined in the stock pond for almost a year in case of any infection, and then hopefully released into the main lake when they reach mid doubles in approx 10 months time.

Ground Levelled by first car park

October 22nd, 2010 Comments off

Just to let you all know what is happening on the rough ground behind the car park close to swim 1. The ground in this area has always been a nuisance. Due to it’s unevenness and the amount of stones prevalent it has always been difficult to do anything with. It has been impossible to mow and stuck out like a sore thumb as being the only unmaintained piece of land on site. This is about to change. Paul has had a load of topsoil delivered which has now been spread all across this area. This is to be seeded and hopefully next year will be fit to be mowed so as to blend in with it’s surroundings.

Paul also plans to get some fruit trees, apples, pears plums etc and plant a small orchard in this area.

Electric Fence

September 22nd, 2010 Comments off

Could ALL anglers PLEASE take care not to lean any tackle against the fence surrounding the lake.

Could they also check the fence after climbing over and make sure that they haven’t hooked up the top electric wire with the fence, as this shorts the fence out leaving the lake vulnerable to predation.

The fence was shorted out four out of five nights last week and this means someone having to walk the whole lake looking for the problem often in the dark……. Not much fun !!!!

Please Take care to Ensure the fence behind your swim is clear and not hooked up

Thankyou

Please Respect The Lake

September 22nd, 2010 Comments off

Could all anglers please make sure that they remove all litter…. Especially any Line and bits of tackle before they leave. We have noticed recently more and more odd bits of line and even marker braid in fairly long lengths left by inconsiderate anglers.

This is unacceptable a lot of time and effort is taken to keep the lake as it is for you the anglers….. Please respect it

Any angler arriving at the lake and finding any litter, line or discarded items of tackle in their chosen swim  must report this to Paul immediately, failure to do so may result in you getting the blame.

Thankyou

Catch Report Book

September 9th, 2010 Comments off

Can ALL members please ensure that they take a few minutes after their session to complete their Catch report in the book in the Fishing Hut, It is normally kept on Pauls desk.
This makes it useful for your fellow anglers as they follow youand on to the lake help them make their decision on what has been happening and what areas have been fishing well or not in their absense.

Catch Reports are to be completed even for a blank!!!!!!!!!!

Many Thanks …………………….

Taking Photos of Fish

August 13th, 2010 Comments off

Can all members Please ensure that they take clear photographs (Not on the Mat) of  both sides of any thirty pound plus fish and also any linears or scaly fish.

Paul would like copies of these pic’s for his records, and also to enable him to keep track of weights gained and condition of fish.

Hopefully all members have adequate camera’s to enable them to take pictures of the fish they catch. Self takes are never easy to perform with a large fish, but with the right equiptment and a little planning it is fairly straightforward to obtain a decent photo.

Obviously If ever Paul or I are about please ask and we will come as soon as we can to help.

Otherwise is there possibly ask a fellow angler that may be close at hand.

For any fish caught over forty please contact either Paul or Wally to verify on Lake Scales.

Grenville Members Sweepstake

August 4th, 2010 Comments off

11 days only left to place take part in this years Sweepstake.

Get them guesses in as soon as possible fella’s

After the success of last years Sweepstake it has been decided that we will be doing the same again this year for all those members wishing to participate. Last Years event was a very close run thing with I believe 32 anglers competing to guess the amount of thirties and forties caught during the season.

The winner was Phil Calloway who was very pleased to win an envelope with over £300 at the end of the season.

For the record there were 206 thirties, and four forties, caught last year and I believe that Phil guessed at 209, so very close indeed.

This years competition will follow exactly the same format.

Members that wish to participate must write their guesses for the amount of both thirties and forties caught during the Grenville season on a piece of paper, place this with a ten pound note into an envelope seal it and write your full name on the front.

Hand these to Wally before the cut off date which will be the 15th August 2010.

Then at the end of the season, the person that’s guess is closest wins the lot…….. Simples!!!!

Obviously the more that take part, the more there is to win, so come on chaps get your guesses in as soon as possible

Opening Day

July 31st, 2010 Comments off

As always the Opening weekend of the season was an eagerly awaited event in the Grenville Calender. Paul was at the lake bright and early, and with Ron arriving a short while later the car park was quickly transformed into a social area for the evening ahead. Numbered Counters were prepared for the 12 oclock draw. Gazebos were erected and straw bales positioned into seating area’s. At approx 10am the main gate was opened and one of the first in was Max Cottis who brought the meat this year for the evening meal. Two of the Barbeques were fired up and three boned and rolled Pork legs were put on to spit roast nice and slowly.

There was a steady trickle of members arriving and wandering round the lake in search of fish, hoping to get a little information as to their whereabouts prior to the draw. At 12 noon the draw took place with suprisingly only 11 members present. As always some were pleased with their luck in the draw, especially Ron who was drawn out first this year to the usual shouts of fix, cheat, etc, and in his own inimitable style chose a swim which eventually proved to be on the opposite side of the lake to everyone else and of course the fish ……. 😉

The anglers withdrew to their swims and began to set up. Marking swims and baiting up was allowed at this stage, and there were soon spods, and marker floats flying across the lake from all directions.

The barbeque was arranged for 7pm, and as pork was starting to look and taste spot on the sausages, burgers and chicken was started off on the remaining barbeques. Those attending the evening event only, started to arrive as the excited anglers made their way around to the car park. There was a good crowd, of members both old and new, and friends of Paul and the lake. It was lovely as always to see Grenville and most of the members of his family.

A great night was had by all there, depite the best attempts of the wonderful British Summer weather. At around 9.30pm the Firework was set off announcing the start to the New Season.

Gary wandered around and took lots of lovely candid snaps, so you can be sure there are plenty of photo’s to follow

ACE Corporate week

July 13th, 2010 Comments off

Max Cottis has hired the entire lake this week as part of the new Grenville Corporate package venture. He arrived late on Friday and his wife and special guests followed on the Saturday morning. He has invited his Companies European consultants and field testers as a thankyou to them for all the hard work they have done as well as a few of his close friends and aquintances. Saturday night he laid on with the help of Cheryl a stunning barbeque over at the cabin. A wonderful time was had by all including the two gatecrashers that I am sure you will recognise as lake regulars 🙂

Full catch report to follow, but I can say that there have been one or two UK pb’s broken already by some of the guys who seem to be really enjoying their time on the lake.

Filming at Grenville

July 9th, 2010 Comments off

Max Cottis and Lee Collins have been down at the lake for the last few days filming a dvd for ACE. All seems to have gone well, with some very nice fish caught for the cameras. Unfortunately I didnt get too many pics as I was very keen not to disturb the filming, whilst in progress. Hopefully we will have some of the finished dvd, which included a little underwater photography,  to post onto the website once the editing and production work is completed.

Platform is wired for light and power

June 29th, 2010 Comments off

The final stages of the construction of the platform adjacent to the Log Cabin are almost complete. Paul has been extremely busy over the last couple of days planting and putting the finishing touches to the platform. Dennis has popped in today and has spent the morning wiring up some gorgeous coach lanterns in each corner of the frame.

The time and effort Paul has spent on this project in the last few days is incredible, as with everything he has done around the lake. He is certainly not a man to do anything by half.

Rip Zuess

June 28th, 2010 Comments off

I am afraid I have some very bad news to report. One of our longest serving Grenville members Andy Moriatey, aka Bigdog has lost  his old Rottweiller Zuess overnight. He found that he had passed away from natural causes upon returning from work in the morning. In the early years of the syndicate Zuess and Andy were both very reguular visitors to the lake, and despite his stature and size we all  found him to be one of the softest and loveliest of dogs, he became a friend to us all

Zuess was actually the reason that Andy got the moniker of Bigdog. Unfortunately his advanced years and lack of mobility meant that Andy couldnt bring him at all for the last couple of years.

Zuess

Zuess

Our thoughts go out to Andy, I know only too well how much he thought of the old fella, and how much it must have distressed him to find him. He will be fondly remembered up here mate by all those that knew him.

Our very best wishes go out to you and all the family.

June 27th, 2010 Comments off

Work has continued through the week and into the weekend. The stockpond is taking shape nicely, with a depth of approx 5ft attained.

Busy, Busy, Busy

June 25th, 2010 Comments off

Phew, it has been a warm week at the lake, with temps upto 28-29 c. It has also been an incredibly busy week at the lake. There has been a team of contractors working on the island to shore up the defences last done by the EA. As we all know the weather and winds especially up here soon made short work of the last feeble attempt. I am sure by the efforts the current team have been putting in this attempt will both improve the look of the island but more importantly ensure that no more erosion occurs.

The work has involved building a stout lattice fence around the island itself to help break impact of waves, digging out a trench around the inside of the fence and plant metal cages weighted down with stones, and filled with new plants, reeds etc. This will help knit the earth together as the roots grow further down.
