October 2012: Newsletter
It's that time again, another month has flown past and Christmas is looming. So what happened here in October?
It was lovely to welcome back 3 guys that were here earlier in the year, Willem who opened the year for us in March, and Frederic and his Dad who were here in the chalet in April. Both managed a good session: 2 40's for Willem and 4 for Fred (among others of course). The chalet continued to fish well for Bart who landed no fewer than 3 x 40's and 2 x 50's to a massive 57lb. So new PB's all round. The same week we had Frank's common out of swim 10 at 55lb so these fish are taking on weight at a rate of knots now with the lake record common and mirror coming out in the same week. Sweet boilies seem to be doing it at the moment, with our Banana cream producing Frankie and a Dutch brand of Scopex and Robin Red sealing the deal for Bart. Fred also went for sweet boilies, using fish/pineapple mix mainly though Willem stuck to fish flavours.
Things have started to quieten down now for the winter, though we feel that some good fishing has been missed as its still a good time of year to be wetting your lines. The fish are again at top weight and feeding well, with a lot of activity on the surface too. The weather although very mild, has been extremely wet and has been a bit of a trial at times for the guys here. But to their credit they stuck it out and the rewards were there for them at the end.
Due to the wet weather we haven't been able to do much around the lake, so we are storing it all up for the sunny days that we usually get in December. Its nice to take advantage of the quiet times for a well earned rest as we have been at full speed for most of the season. Those books won't read themselves after all!
