Hi Dan I’m book on a trip to Gigantica in August. Could you give me some tips for the lake. How does the hot weather effect the fishing? What amount of bait would I need as I’m trying to work out a budget for the trip? Do you allow tiger’s? What is the cost to hire a boat?
Thanks for the enquiry. The fishing in August can be prolific,so long as you fish well….as per any lake really. Zig rigs can be a real wonder throughout the day and bottom baits through the day and night.
Bait wise, Id work on a minimum of 3kg per night, but if your catching you could use a lot more, not that you’d mind if your catching !?
Boats are 30E per week or 50E shared with a friend in a swim close to you. Tigers, you are allowed them, but they have to be bought from us so I know they are prepared properly and I only allow limited quantities ( please dont bring your own, Im very specific about the prepared by me rule, I have to be sure they are safe for my fish ). To be honest, if they were that good, Id use em but I dont, boilies rule here for sure.
Please make sure you have sufficent sun tan lotion and sun tan after care cream should you get burnt. There are plenty of trees here but getting out of the sun is generally difficult and it will be HOT. Im expecting 40degrees so please be careful for your own health.
I hope this has answered your questions but feel free to contact me at anytime should you require additional information regarding the lake, the fishing or general information.
I look forward to meeting you
