A New Lake Record Catfish

There has been some very big Catfish caught recently. The first of these was a New Lake Record of 87lb 10oz and was caught by Nick Syms...


I was fortunate to be alongside Nick when he got the take and have to admit to being impressed that he managed to get it in at all. Firstly it dragged him through all the undergrowth on the back of the island, indeed we could hear branches breaking from over 100yds away as this thing bulldozed its way through everything in its path.


Nick then gently coaxed this beast through various small weedbeds between him and the island, It really was cracking angling and amazing to see Nicks face when it surfaced close to us..... Well done Sir!!!

The big common which has been growing well over last couple of years has now actually overtaken the Big Linear, who hasn't been on the bank now for over a year...as the largest fish in the lake at an incredible weight of 47lb 3oz....... Very well done to the captor Lucas, who along with his mate Chris have managed a total of four forties from Double swim this week fish in the lake.

Molyneux Report to 7th May 2016………

Molyneux Report to 7th May 2016………

 

 

No sooner had the previous weeks weather arrived, causing mayhem in it’s wake, than it started to dissipate. Saturday morning dawned bright and clear, and the prospect for the following seven days was for it to remain that way, with warmest temperatures of the year so far… More importantly the night time temperatures were high so hopefully plenty of fishy activity.

 

This weeks guests were in part making their third trip to the lake. Kev, Tim, Ryan , and Paul had all visited us for the previous two years, and enjoyed some success on their trips. They had two new friends with them this time, John and Neil. We of course welcomed them, and had a little look around the lake as you do…

 

The draw was nail biting, Paul came out number 1 so drew Barn swim, John chose Social 1, Tim decided upon the Double, Neil went up to Jacks in the hope they would seek out shallow water. Kev chose the Cabin swim, and Ryan picked Social 2.

 

The weather did indeed hold, in fact it improved almost daily, hot and sunny and warm at night, with only the odd warm shower to punctuate the sunbathing.…  It was as if this is what the fish had been waiting for. They moved out of the deep and very shallow water, Yeah I know, weird isn't it! and out into the main body of the water and in dire danger of actually getting hooked. The guys fished well, and worked hard for their fish. when they came it was thick and fast action, with many big fish caught and a few dropped off the hook. The disappointment didn't last too long though and the guys went after another…

 

John started the week off on Saturday night with a 39lb 3oz mirror so it is only right I start with his catch report for the week….Mirrors of 39lb 3oz, 25lb 8oz, 25lb 12oz, 29lb 8oz, 21lb 12oz, 30lb 4oz, 33lb 8oz, 40lb 4oz, 30lb, 34lb 4oz, 34lb 4oz, 30lb, and 27lb 8oz. Commons of 19lb 4oz, 17b, 22lb, and 29lb 4oz. and a Grass carp of 26lb 8oz.

 

Ryan landed the following from Social 2….. 20lb Mirror, 38lb 4oz mirror, 36lb mirror, 32lb 1oz mirror, Commons of 12lb 8oz, 10lb 8oz, 14lb 8oz, 27lb 2oz, and a grass carp of 24lb, 

 

From the cabin Kev caught mirrors of 38lb, 40lb 15oz, 45lb 13oz. commons of 45lb 9oz, 38lb 10oz and 19lb 4oz, plus one Grass carp of 36lb 6oz’s.

 

Paul in Barn landed the following…. 34lb mirror, 44lb 11oz mirror, and 29lb 3oz mirror.

 

Tim in Double swim landed a 31lb mirror, 35lb 8oz mirror, 30lb Grass carp, 38lb mirror, 37lb 1oz mirror, 37lb 10oz mirror, 33lb 10oz mirror, 32lb 8oz mirror, 45lb 9oz common.

 

Neil was last to actually get off the mark, not catching till 6.30am on Tuesday……. He made up for it with a good charge as the week went on… 

He caught…… 34lb 15oz mirror, 22lb 10oz common, 36lb 12oz mirror, 34lb 5oz mirror, 12lb 3oz mirror, 30lb 1oz mirror, 33lb 2oz mirror, 31lb 6oz mirror, 20lb 13oz common, 22lb 5oz common, 32lb 4oz mirror, and an 11lb 6oz common.

 

A Cracking weeks fishing, with five different forties including a new lake record Common weighing 45lb 9oz’s which was caught twice in a few days meaning that good mates and Brother in law’s Kev and Tim jointly hold the Lake Record for a common. Another mention must also go to Kev, who fished the Cabin swim. With three different forties, two of which were over 45lb’s.

A good week was enjoyed by all as always when these guys are over, the Dick of the day award was given out daily for misdemeanours committed during the day… Thanks guys always an absolute pleasure to see you all, and well done on catching some good fish……

Molyneux Report to 30th April 2016........

Molyneux Report to 30th April 2016……….

 

The Saturday morning call to the gate came around mid-morning. This weeks guests were anglers who had visited us once before, two years ago. A lovely bunch of lads, who go by the names of Barry, Alan, Terry, Jason, Kev, Chris, and his two boys Damien and Nathan…..

 

After the usual catch up and quick cuppa the lads and I wandered around the lake. They were pleased to hear the fish had been so active the previous week as it bode well for the forthcoming week….The guys chose their swims and set off to make camp for the week. 

 

The weather during the course of the week once again dictated when and where the fish were feeding, and as we had become used to it had no sooner warmed up a bit than the temps plummeted and the wind and rain came… This group truly had the worst the weather so far this year, with snow on one day, Hail and high winds another. Indeed there were instances of civvies being blown up and away from their secured location. And in-between all this mayhem there were bright sunny spells. Crazy weather we are seeing again this spring.The lads did not complain and got on with their fishing, and managed to catch a few…..

 

Barry, had a couple of mirrors from the Double on the first night, at 30lb 1oz and 28lb 10oz, then bizarrely didn't have another….

 

Alan, sadly blanked from the cabin swim, despite giving it his best shot…..

 

Terry, chose Stones swim, and caught nothing till Tuesday when they moved into the area, then caught a couple during the middle of the week, at 29lb 1oz mirror, 35lb mirror, then on the last night landed a new pb and cracking mirror of 40lb 11oz….

 

Jason, Fished the double alongside his mate Barry, sadly he too was to struggle with the conditions and indeed had no joy until the last evening when he landed a 33lb 4oz mirror, then early on Saturday morning managed a 29lb 4oz mirror on Saturday morning….

 

Kev, started in Social 1 then started a game of musical swims when he moved into Boat, as he did so Damien moved from Jacks into Social 1, Kev then moved into Jacks. This all occurred in around three or four hours… enough to make an old fella like me dizzy…. He sadly lost a number of fish from Jacks, again from the shallow water alongside the island… He finally managed to land 3 good fish from six takes he received on the final night….. they weighed in at 29lb 4oz, 34lb 8oz, and 36lb.

 

Chris, fared slightly better with a few more fish from the deeper water of barn swim, finishing up with mirrors of 27lb, 37lb 4oz, 27lb 1oz, 36lb 8oz, 41lb 4oz, 33lb, and a common of 15lb

 

Nathan fished Social 2, and strangely considering the weather landed most of his fish out of the shallow water to his right…. He caught Mirrors of 36lb 4oz, 36lb 4oz, 23lb 7oz, and a 13lb common

 

Damien, as mentioned moved on Tuesday from Jacks after catching only one mirror of 29b 4oz, into Social 1, where he managed to tease out a 33lb 11oz mirror the following morning, and then followed up with a 28lb 14oz mirror.

 

The lads had a great week, despite the fishing being hard, and celebrated Chris 50th while here… A great bunch and we look forward to welcoming the Harlow boys back again next May…..
