"You can observe a lot just by watching." Yogi Berra
The milky way showing over the main lake on a summers night with an angler playing one of our big girls...the green light. Magic moment indeed.
***** April 2019........New lake record........75lb common carp*****
2020 and 2021 - A period of Covid lockdowns and restricted fishing.
2020 was a very restricted season with just the summer months from the end of June until early October being fished due to Covid restrictions. The quality of the fishing in the main lake turned out to be superb despite the carp being lower in weight due to extended spawning with 74 anglers catching 148 carp of over 50lb. Of those there were 103 x 50's, 41 x 60' and 4 x 70's. That is over 2 x 50lb + fish per angler. Obviously we also saw a lot of smaller fish in the 40lb, 30lb and a few 20lb category caught. There is no doubt that once we see anglers back at the lakes in 2021 there will be some spectacular fishing to be had. Poppy' lake also had a great season with several new 50's banked and average catches that were between 60 and 100 fish per week. Great potential for our first 60 there in the coming year. In 2021 we opened for the second half of the season and despite a very heavy spawning that went of for a couple of months we still saw the carp getting back to their top weights by seasons end. Once more lots of 50's and 6's were banked plus several of over 70lb. Many of the known big fish, including the big common, were not banked in 2021 so it is anyone's guess as to what weights they will be showing up at in the spring of 2022.
Both lakes will be netted in December of 2021 to assess the stock as well as remove unwanted fish. It will be an interesting period for us and all will be documented on the blog as it happens.
