A Record Catch Report at Villefond

Some great news just in from Villefond – an unforgettable catch report. Here’s owner Mark with the latest…

We had four guys fishing our lake who have been before and knew our lake well. One angler told me ever year he comes it has been better than the year before so they had high hopes. His personal best carp was a good forty and he has caught some stunning fish from our lake. The fish have just come out of winter and have just started to switch on the feed and our monsters have started to search out bait. The guys were using the house baits and sweetcorn, fishing pop ups and sweetcorn over a scattering of freebies. The catch report was as follows:

62.10, 62.4,
52.12, 51, 50.8,
49, 48 common, 46.8, 45.8, 44,
39.12, 35, 34.8, 31, 30lb linear
12, 10 and 5 other stockies…….

This was the again the best year as each angler smashed their pb’s and what was really great for the lake was the 3 50lb+ fish that they caught were new 50’s for the lake. It was their first trip over the 50lb barrier and they join loads of other fish to reach that magical number in our lake. All round a great week!
