Aprils newsletter, time is moving along quite quick now winter is behind us. Last week we had our first booked guests of this season, Mark, wife Tracy, and six year old son Archie.
Mark had a very good week landing 20 carp ranging from 24lb to 44lb and he was only fishing the lake part time as he went out for family days to Paris and Le Mans. All fish were caught at different times of the day or night, some early hours with no set feeding times, but a good catch report to end the week with. All carp were caught feeding a short rig and on the bottom, single boilie tip pop up corn.
This week we have three Gents fishing La Bletiere – Leo, Robbie and Dannie, arrived last Saturday afternoon and were straight on the fishing, to date they have landed 20 carp between them of different size, I will add the catch report to the Angling Lines web page once the week is over.
Today there has been a drop in temperature back to 0 degrees over night, and staying cold for a couple of days but the weather warming up again next week.
We have only last week invested in a new ride on lawn mower for Karen, she was using a normal walk behind mower and cutting a large amount of grass with it on the banks and in the garden areas, this was taking a good day to cut, but with this new ride on the grass cutting for Karen has been greatly reduced, resulting is less disturbance to out guests when the movers are in use, which we have to cut the grounds every week.
The trees around the lake are now starting to produce the coverage over the waters edge where we trimmed them back hard in the winter, it is proving to be better all round for the guests when fishing, but still providing cover for the carp when the sun is shining.
Please remember when you are getting closer to your holiday booking, please give us a good couple of weeks notice for any baits, particle, pellets and food packages you require. Especially on food packages to allow Karen time to shop for supplies ready for you arrival.
We look forward to seeing you all when you arrive at La Bletiere for you French Carp Fishing Holiday, and for the guests that have all ready been and fished the lake, we hope you had a great time, and look forward to seeing you in the future if you decide to return to La Bletiere.
