Having now seen the back of a very wet and cold April I thought I would just have a quick look at the catch reports. Despite some awful weather where some of the anglers did not even fish but sat in the gite in the dry, we have had a pretty good month.
It seems to have been a good winter at most lakes for the carp putting on weight and here as always I fed the fish heavily during the winter and I can now see this paying of with some big fish coming out and in very good condition.
The number of thirties that are coming out is really good and a lot of fish just nudging the forty pound mark so this year should see a lot more forties out. We have already had (from the end of last year) twelve different forties out.
For April just the fish over twenty pounds the list is;
* 6 x 40’s
* 27 x 30’s
* 31 x 20’s
Not bad catch rates despite the weather doing all it can to make it hard for us.
Looking forward to another good year with the fish steadily putting on weight.
