Lake Netting

After the season ended in late October the off season work started right away, this includes lake and house maintenance and preparing for the winter ahead!

One of the main projects that took place was the netting of the lake. This was done very professionally by Jack and his team at JSfisheries. When netting a lake you can never expect to catch all the fish with around 65% of the lakes population to appear due to carp holes and small snags lifting the net. However a good number of carp were caught which allowed us to see some of the ones that look like they will be hitting higher weights in the not so distant future.

We removed silver fish which came to around 100kg and any carp under 20lb that we managed to net. Even one of the catfish made an appearance! The removal of the smaller fish will allow the bigger carp to have more food and generally better water conditions to grow on for our anglers to break their PB's!

Below are just some of the many photos that were taken on the day, do scroll through to see the full netting.

September News Update

We have had some fantastic catch reports and a very busy season,with mixed weather but plenty of fantastic fishing. Some of our guests have been improving on their personal bests - in particularly we have to mention the youngest guest with an amazing personal best achievement :- Rowan Robinson

His dad said " The purpose of this holiday was to give a special time to a carp mad 7 year old whose life revolves around fishing. In our week at Watersmeet he banked 3 thirties including a PB mirror at 35lbs 2oz, a PB common at 32lbs 10oz and another mirror at 31lbs 3oz. "

See some of the great pictures of Rowan with his catches. There were many anglers with new PB's achieved this year so check out all the carp photos on the website. Also we have had some lady anglers enjoying the sport on the small lake. The carp are much happier now during the hotter months as a new pump has been put in which keeps the lake replenished.

This last week we have had 2 anglers that have a mega fantastic week with an amazing catch of 42 carp up to 43lb - between the two of them. That's awesome!! We now have only a few bookings left until the end of the season. Then it's time for all the out of season jobs - loads of leaves to rake!

THE GOOD NEWS IS THAT WATERSMEET IS OPENING EARLIER NEXT YEAR - SO GET IN QUICK AS WE ARE BOOKING UP VERY QUICKLY for 2018!! WATERSMEET SEASON STARTS FROM WEEK BEGINNING 20/4/18

August Update

 

We have been virtually  fully booked with a variety of different guests, with father and son parties to grandfathers mum and dad and a daughter fishing! To just good friends, who love carping!  

The small lake has proved to be fun for the ladies/children and recently an elderly gentleman -

"My 85 year old father had some of his most enjoyable fishing in recent years in the small lake."

Most importantly the guests are having a good lot of bites and saying how much they like Watersmeet and the facilities.

"We both really enjoyed the fishing."

 "Watersmeet is a great venue with great fishing and first class accommodation that has something to offer everyone."

As new owners we felt it was important to buy new equipment.  We have provided what we feel is good quality equipment - Fox de luxe unhooking mats, Wychwood landing nets, tracker weigh slings and Fox tripods. With a large Renegade barrow.

"The equipment supplied on the main lake is top notch and saves room in the car" - from one guest recently 

"Equipment provided was good quality and the barrow made life easy" - also said our guest last week who enjoyed using them and having space in his car for any extras.

One customer said that during their week 

"Most fish were caught in the evening or through the night." 

Whereas the following week the guests caught a fair number without any night fishing, just fishing evening and days. Fishing takes time and a variety of methods to be tried out.

 Watersmeet is that special place to try out those tight lines once again - We welcome you back very soon!  (One of our recent customers was on his 5 or 6th visit!)

July Update

We, the owners, have just come back from a week at Watersmeet.  we had a fabulous time relaxing with plenty of BBQs going on in the evening sunshine.

Not a lot of time to fish but you can see there were a couple of beauties that came out.  These two awesome fish have not been seen for some time!  The fish on the main lake were generally not feeding due to high temperatures, which were well into 30+ degrees.  It was too hot to fish much in the day.  

My daughter tried her hand at fishing on the small lake. An entertaining afternoon was had in competitive sport!  When the main lake is slow the carp on the small lake always seem to be hungry. It's definitely worth dipping a rod in to so what catches.  Great fun for novices, with a bit of help, as they are not all small carp! 

Jobs still had to be done. It was surprising to see how much the trees had overgrown and one small tree had toppled into the water, grass to be cut flower bed to weed and water. All had to be dealt with ready for our next guests.

Great Catch - The Elusive Grass Carp

Despite temperatures of 30C degrees - Reece managed to catch one we haven't seen for sometime!

The fishing was very slow due to soaring temperatures which are said to be even higher next week. 

Luckily we have a quiet week - the only one not booked this year and it will give the time for the fish to just take in the rays and chill ready for next weeks guests.

Yesterday we had another booking for next year! Don't hang around in case that week you might be thinking of has already been booked!!

Chillaxing in Idyllic Surroundings at Watersmeet

This week the Willis Party had some great catches (checkout the feedback and catch report).

 

They fished on both lakes using the kohlanta house boilie, similar to cell, keeping bait quantities small.

 

Fishing is tiring and what better surroundings to relax and take a doze.
