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.
