Eskimo's, Igloo's and very few Carp.....

Molyneux Report to 24th March 2018…..

Three more intrepid anglers returned to us this week. Martin and Phil arrived mid afternoon on Saturday… Their companion at arms Chay, was otherwise engaged over the weekend so arrived with us on Monday….

The weather forecast for the week did not look particularly appealing, with Dire weather warnings for the next couple of days, before turning to dismal during the week and returning to bloody awful before they were due home. Well this sadly for the boys, those at the Met Office had got their predictions right…

The weather was closing in rapidly as we finished our wander around the lake… Phil, chose to try his luck in Social 1, Martin thought Double looked right for a bite…. and off they went to set up in the hopes of getting their gear away before the rain came. 

Temperatures plummeted over the next 36 hours snow and frosty mornings and Sunday night saw temps down as low as -6, Monday night was not a huge lot warmer but a little was a huge help….

Tuesday and the weather was as good as it had been since they arrived. Still fishes they had all quite enjoyed the adventure of keeping warm, and thankfully the fish had not pestered them until now, so no need to rush out in flip flops and their undies in the bitterly cold, which could have been a really uncomfortable situation to be in….

Wednesday morning, at around 4.30am and Phil heard a strange noise which at first he struggled to recognise, then twigged! It was a take…… A rather docile mirror of 31lb came to the net and Phil was finally off the mark..

Nothing else was to be caught that day, but on Thursday at 2.30am Phil was away again, this time a 24lb mirror coming to his rods……. The temperature was described as hellish cold if memory serves me, and so correctly Phil didn't mess about with a picture, he weighed unhooked, checked fish over and released it….


Later that morning and his fishing partner Chay who was next door in Social 2 landed a 22lb mirror.

This sadly proved to be the last fish of the week, with poor old Martin in Double swim not managing to get his name in the book….. He took it in good spirits, as an angler he knew they were up against it from the start due to the weather.


Great to see the lads again, we had a chuckle despite everything and they assured me that they had enjoyed, or was it endured the week? My memory is not what it once was.

Molyneux Report to 17th March 2018

A short while after our first group had left, the latest anglers arrived at the lake. The group feel like old friends having visited us a number of times, Barry, Chris, Jamie, Nathan, Jason, Damien, Paul, and Evan… We caught up over a cup of tea, and wandered round to let lads see the lake…..

The draw was a surprise as Barry who is normally last out came out first for a change. He chose Jacks swim, Jamie chose Social 1, Chris in Social 2, Jason in Stones, Nathan in Barn, and Damien in Double. Paul chose Boat swim, and Evan chose Cabin swim…….

First day or two the weather was wet and windy, and despite the lads best efforts the fish were otherwise occupied. Monday morning and Barry was first off the mark with a 24lb 4oz common. At 7.30am Chris in Social 2 landed a 31lb mirror.

The next morning and it was Jamie’s turn… He managed to bank a mirror of 32lb 2oz.

Wednesday was much milder and the fish were visibly more active all around the lake. Chris kicked the action off with a 36lb 1oz mirror at 7.30am. At 9am Jason in Stones landed a 38lb 1oz mirror. At 2.30pm Nathan had a belting run completely out of the blue resulting in a 39lb mirror.

The following day at 4.30am Nathan was in again, a 29lb mirror falling victim to his rigs, 7am saw Chris land a 26lb common, at 8am Barry landed a common of 24lb 7oz. Jamie followed this a short while later with a 35lb 10oz mirror. At 9.30pm Damien in Double caught his first of the week with a 30lb mirror.

Friday and 5am Chris was out doing battle once again, this time landing a 35lb 14oz mirror, at 9am Nathan in Barn landed a 35lb 13oz mirror.

These were to be the final fish of the week, sadly for Paul and Evan in Boat and Cabin respectively, it seemed the fish simply didn't visit their spots…..

A decent week for the guys in not the best of weather, nice to see them all again as always, a pleasure spending time with them……

Molyneux Report to 10th March 2018

Our first anglers of the year arrived to a very cold and grim looking Molyneux…. 

Sadly we had been surprised with a chilly -6 overnight and the lake had re-frozen. The guys were very understanding and after a couple of cups of warming tea we went for a wander around to see where they fancied setting up….. 

 

We had five anglers on for the week, Liam and Rob fished Socials, Andy fished Stones, while Colin set up in Barn, and Martin in Double….

 

The lake started to thaw on Sunday but it was Monday before Social and Stones became fishable, and after a little icebreaking duties in the boat I broke the ice enough in front of cabin and down towards Double to enable the rest to drift into the the bank where it broke up… The boys were fishing!

 

Tuesday morning at 2am Rob in Social 2 landed the first fish of the week with a stinking 38lb 14oz mirror, Two hours later and Liam in Social 1 had also landed his first fish, a 31lb 8oz mirror…

 

Wednesday morning at 2am and Liam landed his second at 31lb 11oz. That evening at 7.30pm he landed another mirror of 35lb 12oz….

 

Andy moved from Stones to Cabin swim in the hope of getting onto the fish, while the guys in Double and Barn carried on trying to tempt a bite….

 

Thursday evening at 7.30pm Liam was away again with his best yet, a 37lb 1oz mirror. Friday morning he did it again landing  a 24lb common…

 

This was to be the final fish of their trip. Affected by the poor weather at the start of the week, the fish had not really started to spread and start searching food enough. 

 

It was a pleasure to meet the lads, a cracking bunch who we hope to welcome back in slightly warmer times……………………

Record Breaking week at Molyneux.......

 

Saturday morning rolled around far too soon for our previous weeks anglers, and as they wearily packed away all their fishing gear an early morning call took me to the gate where two of the weeks party had arrived… Andy and Nick G were the first to make it. A short while later, Nick H also turned up with Colin, Terry and Another Nick whom we referred to as Bert all week as it was all becoming far too confusing for me this early on a Saturday morning…..

 

The guys chose their homes for the week, and set off for their stations…… Colin was in Jacks, Andy in Social 2, Nick G in Social 1, Terry in Stones, Bert in barn, and Nick H in Double….. 

 

The weather of the previous few weeks was due to change, with more sunshine and a change of wind, which was much more significant as it would bring with it warmer night time temperatures…. Sadly it wasn't to be and after a couple of half hearted sunny days the wind swung back round to the chill Northerly we had been enduring of late…. 

 

Colin set the ball rolling with a 39lb 2oz mirror on Saturday evening. At midnight Nick H in Double hooked and landed a 22lb mirror.

 

Sunday morning at 5am Colin was away again, and after a terrific tussle was amazed to see a huge grassy come to the net. This fish had unusually visited the bank twice in less than a month, and this time was slightly up in weight at 44lb. Half an hour later and Nick H found himself battling a good fish, once finally in the net he knew it was a good un. On the scales it went 38lb 10oz. 

That evening Bert in Barn swim had his first, a 28lb mirror. An hour later, Andy in Social 2 had his first a 38lb mirror. Two hours later and Nick H landed a 34lb mirror. 

It is fair to mention at this point that we have a family of friendly ducks who frequent the Double swim. Now Nick being the kindly chap he is had been charmed by them. during the week nick and the ducklings became extremely close, and if Nick was in his bivvy then so was a flock of busy, noisy little ducklings . It was very comical to see…

 

At 5.30am on Monday morning Nick H in Double landed a 38lb mirror. Then during the course of the day a few of the anglers moved into other areas. Andy in Social 2 didn't feel he was in best spot so moved into Boat swim. Nick G in Social 1 had without a bait boat struggled to get amongst fish, he moved around into Cabin swim. On a wander round I chatted with Colin in Jack’s. He had started well but not seen fish close to him, but had seen fish on back of island (Social 1 water). With the swim free I suggested that it might be worth moving. Without another thought Colin was up and sorting stuff ready to move. 

At 2.20pm Bert landed a 25lb mirror. At 4.30pm Nick caught our bent grassy, and no I am not referring to its sexual orientation…. it has obvious suffered a serious back injury at some point in its life, and is quite unusual. It swims strongly enough, and is obviously feeding happily enough, until of course he  picks up the round thing attached to a hook. So I let him be, and wish him well….. it weighed in at 24lb 9oz….That evening, Andy (now in Boat) caught a 25lb 8oz mirror.

 

Tuesday, and Nick H, as he had most mornings, started things off with a 30lb 14oz mirror.

Nick G in Cabin was next at 3.30am with a 37lb 5oz mirror from the tip of the island. Bert in Cabin swim had a 30lb 4oz mirror just before dawn. At 6am Colin in Social 1 then caught a 5lb common. A couple of hours later and he caught a 32lb 8oz mirror. 


At 1.30pm Terry in Stones, who was relatively new to carp fishing hooked and landed a 30lb mirror. I was present when he landed the fish and to see his face when the pics were taken made my day. 

At 10.45pm Colin had a 38lb 4oz mirror, which I am sure made his day. 

 

The next morning and Colin was in again, a cracking fight was how he described it, and the resulting 44lb 12oz mirror was certainly worth the winning. At 10am, he had another cracking scrap and this time landed a 41lb mirror. At 4pm Andy landed a 37lb mirror from Boat swim. 

 

Thursday morning and Andy had another, a 38lb 12oz mirror. Colin netted a 28lb mirror a short while later. Then at 5.30am Colin landed a 29lb 8oz mirror. At 8am he landed 37lb 8oz mirror. Nothing else was caught for the rest of the day. 

 

It was only just into the first few minutes of Friday when Colin landed a 19lb common. At 1am his mate Nick in Double also landed a 19lb common. At 3am Nick took a 28lb mirror from the island in front of double, At 4.15am Colin landed a 17lb common. 5am and Colin was in again with a 34lb 8oz mirror landed. At 6am Nick in Cabin landed a 12lb common. 

At 1pm Colin then landed the fish of the week, and what a fish, the big common at a best weight and lake record of 48lb 6oz. His fourth forty of the week, a cracking result, and also record for the lake..

 

Not to finish there though Colin nicked a 30lb mirror at 2am Saturday morning to round of a wonderful weeks fishing. Well done Sir!!

 

Cracking bunch of guys, but then we know Nick and Colin don't come with anyone other than nice guys so no surprise there. The weather could have been kinder, but the guys did well with everyone catching and having a good week.

 

A Pleasure Gents Thanks for your company….
