News at Laroussi
March So Far...
Updating The Facilities
We have recently freshened up the facilities, including a new floor, new door, a fresh coat of paint and a new freezer.
The fishing has been a little slow, however we have seen 3 x 40's on the bank (41lb, 42lb and 43lb) 1 small grass carp and 1 sturgeon at 61lb. We are awaiting the photos.

Last Week's Results & Good News For This Week So Far
Last week, they had a good week with 28 fish out. Jon Long was the top rod of the week with 15 fish. A monster tench 13lb too.
I also have a very very good news for Laroussi, it's fishing VERY WELL this week with already another 25 fish out in only 2 days! Mirror, common, catfish, grass carp and one sturgeon ! Anglers are very glad!
Weather is now ideal, low pression, cloudy, showers, bit of wind and very stable temperature (20C)
62lb 11oz For Tom
This mirror weighed 62lb11oz and was caught by 16 year old Tom Winder... that's a capture that is going to take some beating!
Fishing has been slow the last couple of weeks, it's a strange season and weather has been the factor n°1.
The anglers on the lake right now has a 60lb sturgeon, a 30lb grass and a 59lb mirror.
Weather has been up and down from early april to late may. We all know Fishing results depend directly to weather conditions.
In the last 2 months, about 250 fish were caught : some week at 20ish fish with bad weather conditions has high pression, North wind, cold nights, and some better week up to 45 fish with ideal conditions : low pression, south wind and stable temperatures with some showers.
Many New Pb's has been broken putting smiles on faces. Many forties, fifties and a couple of sixties and seventies were landed. A new Seventy was caught by Kenneth Anderson at exactly 70lb. Graeme Joyce was happy to break his Pb with another super mirror weighing 70lb6oz. John Allen Alias " The Baron" strikes again with a new Pb at 68lb8oz. Some big grass carp over 40lber up to 50lb, some sturgeon to 66lb and a few tench up to 14lb.
Still no catfish out but They are now very active and chase ducks every week! I suggest you to bring special catfish gear and try maybe just a rod with a big piece of luncheon meat but be ready to fight a long time! Anglers watched some long specimen along the bushes chasing ducks. Most of them are between 6.5 to 8 feet long.
Still waiting to see some particular fish as the Big Ghost common, The WR tench, the 165lb catfish caught 4 years ago, the 72lb mirror caught last January by David Wellard, The Pretty Common etc...
This actual week is doing well, yesterday a 59lb and a 51lb were out.
Some growth !
During the lastest Laroussi video, Roy Van Goor caught the gorgeous Fully scaled at 51lb at the end of september 2015.
Early march, Corey Hassell was on the bank braving the cold weather. His very first bite was that same lovely fish weighing 57lb8oz ! Not bad when you consider we don't feed them at all during the winter. It will probably hit 60lb mark in the spawning period. With his Friend Thomas Bowden, they landed a couple of carp (20lber, 30lber) and 2 forties at 42lb and 44lb.
Roll on spring!
