Catch report 2017

Similar to Alder we don't have all the catch reports so some numbers don't cross check. Anyway working with what we have: There were 556 carp landed consisting of 149 teens, 211 twenties, 84 thirties and 16 forties and the occasional 100lb catfish. This is an average of 14.25 carp per angler.

Best individual result was from Chad Morris with 34 carp followed by Darren who managed 30 carp.

Congratulations to both anglers and to all the anglers who bagged a new PB (usually at least one per group).

Looking at the chart, Notaire's also continued to fish well despite the hot dry summer.

Catfish Lake

Many of our anglers have expressed interest in catching Big Bad Barry, the 100+lb catfish in the Notaire’s house lake. For some this would be a new species, and for others the chance to increase their PB.

We have decided to accommodate this growing demand by making the top lake of Notaire’s two lakes a catfish lake, and so have recently stocked it with over 300lbs of catfish. The biggest at 110lbs may outrank Big Bad Barry, though it will be neck and neck, and the second largest is about 90lbs. The remaining three are approximately 20, 30 and 50lbs respectively.

So if you fancy a chance at some arm-wrenching catfish action bring your catfish rods along with your carp rods to the Notaire’s Lakes!

Novel catch at Notaire’s Lake

This year we decided to net the lake to reduce the amount of silver fish. Jack and Dan of JS Fisheries appeared at the appointed time and quickly got to work deploying nets and boats. The nets were quick to encircle the lake, and Jack and Dan started hauling them in. Every so often they stopped to work around an obstacle, and then a shout went up: a different sort of snag had been encountered. Jack untangled the intruder which turned out to be a complete rod and reel. This was identified on our FaceBook page by Karl, who thought that he had lost it to the catfish!

Speaking of Big Bad Barry (the catfish, named by Jess Hay, the first person to catch him) we were hoping to net him and get a definitive weight for the year. Hopes were high when we saw some regurgitated fish but when the net was drawn tight there was no catfish. He had slipped the net.

When we removed the silverfish it looked like they had bred beyond their food supply, so we are hopefull that our winter feeding program will be more efficiently utilised by the carp, leading to a bigger weight increase for next season.

Big bad Barry is back

Big Bad Barry is back! He's the catfish in Notaire's Lake and he made this third appearance in ten years on Wednesday. Adam caught him and estimates he's around 95lb, which fits in with his previous weights of 88.5lb and 91.5lb in 2015 and 2016 respectively. Adam's a keen catfish angler, but he wasn't fishing for Big Bad Barry specifically. BBB came out on an 18mm boilie on Adam's carp rod after being played for 25 minutes.

Jess catches the elusive Notaire’s cat.

 

After almost nine years and many snapped off anglers, Jess from Morley is the first angler to bank the Notaire’s catfish setting a new lake record. Our Facebook comments show that many anglers have fond encounters with the cat.

Jess came to Notaire’s targetting the uncaught catfish and fished using a giant 50mm home rolled boilie on one rod and a deadbait on the other.

The deadbait roared off on Monday but the hook didn’t set and the cat escaped with a free meal.

In the end it was a carp rod that sounded a run and Jess hit it as husband Jordy was tying a new rig.

It was clear from the beginning that this wasn’t a carp and after 30 minutes of patient playing on the 3lb TC rod Jess got the cat to the bank.

Jess and Jordy had previously scouted along the waterline of the dam wall and they felt safe enough to go in wearing waders, so Jordy was able to fold the cat’s tail into the net so that they could lift it onto the bank.

Closer examination showed that the cat was in pristine condition and had disposed of the all the rigs it had snapped over the years.

Finally the moment came as it took three of us to position the sling on the scales - 88lbs, the biggest fish in Notaires lake.

We have some great video of the cat being returned to the lake, turning round and slipping away between Jordies bare legs, hairy moment!

Well done Jess, the cat couldn’t have been caught by a nicer angler, hope you enjoyed the champagne.
