I dropped in at the venue on Thursday (a warm sunny day) and saw countless carp basking and cruising on top.

Chatting with the bailiff he told me 112lb won Wednesdays match – mainly F1s with carp taken in the margins later on mostly caught on meat. Other methods he recommended were pellet shallow and also paste,  particularly on the deeper – siltier side of the lake, if it starts to fizz.

Hope to see you all there on Sunday

Kev Gear Does The Ton At Carneys

Congratulations to Kev Gear, who won our last match at Carneys Damsel Pool in style. Weighing in at 105lb 2oz, he is the newest member of our prestigious 100 club.

Our Hall of Fame inductees are a select group, who have all caught in excess of one hundred pound of fish in a match.hall of fameIn addition to Carneys, another venue that has produced such big weights, is this Sunday’s venue.

The Willows Spring Pool, has produced some of the  largest weights recorded by the club, so there is a good chance we could see another 100 club member next week and possibly Steve Randle’s record of 153lb 11oz being threatened.

Don’t forget special rules apply to this venue – See previous post

NB Bread is now allowed as a bait option

What a Difference a Week Makes

The start of the season at Blake Hall on the 1st May and it was Blustery Cold and Wet. Fast forward to the 8th and we were basking in Full Sun and 25° Heat at Izaak Walton Fisheries on the Canal Pool.

The carp were cruising around in groups ready for spawning, so for some it was a frustrating day.

Derek Taylor and Steve Randle: with 73lb & 49lb respectively; showed however that a good weight could still had.

It’s Carneys on the Damsel pool next week; a favorite with many anglers as good weights are always on the cards given favourable conditions.

We have had one or two enquiries from potential new members who may be joining us there as guests. I am sure they will be made to feel most welcome (general abuse and banter being reserved for more established members).

Hope to see you all bright and early next Sunday
