Round up of the 2010 carp fishing season at Glehias

39.07 – May 2010
With all of the Christmas and New year celebrations out of the way the next thing we look forward to here at Glehias is the start of the 2011 carp fishing season.
.
Firstly we would like to give a big thank you to all of our customers who visited us last year and made it special by leaving here with a big smile on their faces, we still get a huge kick out of seeing people landing their PB’s!
.
2010 kicked off in a big way with many new lake records being broken in the first few weeks of fishing, some weeks saw as many as 5 records being smashed! The lake responded incredibly well throughout considering the pressure was hard on it all year with most weeks fully booked with some times as many as 5 anglers on it at a time.

50.03 cat from July 2010

No one managed to land the big Cat last year (estimated to be around 70lb’s), though we are sure it was hooked several times throughout the year and lost; so the lake Cat record stands at 55lb 2oz which was set by Des Chapman here in April. Approximately 23 more Catfish up to around 20lbs were gradually added throughout the second half of the season and these have seemed slow to respond to baiting as they settled in to their new environment, but hopefully we will see a big increase in catches of these beautifully ugly predators this year as they start packing on lots of weight.

.
Plans are also in place to steadily increase Carp stocks in Lake Lauren from the spring onwards with beautiful Koi growing on in Lake William, though Rob Dannatt who fished here in August 2010 might say that the fishing was busy enough with 32 big Carp coming out for him in his first week here!

Young Nathan White’s Grassie

The lake record Mirror increased in weight this year and is now up to 43lb 10oz which was landed in April by Roger Hemming who also managed to land the lake record Common at 36lb and lake record Grassie at 15lb 10oz all in the same week.

.
Hopefully we can get to see some more great fishing from our visiting anglers this year.
.
Good luck to all for 2011!
