Mandy Makes Waves

Here for the week with hubby Terry and his son Carl and future daughter-in-law Karen, Mandy Osborne, the 53 year old personal shopper from Reading has made waves here at La Gléhias as she has broken the Lake Record Common which now stands at 49lb on the nose!

In her own words;
After struggling for a few days not catching, my husband lent me his boat. He spent a bit of time baiting up near the bbq area for me, and made me some rigs to send out on the boat with a Tiger-Nut boilie and some particle and broken boilies mixed in, there was nothing left to do but sit and relax. About 20 minutes later, the alarm went off. The size 6 curly Terry rig (or Ronnie Rig) made for me by Terry came in quite easy, not too much fight, but the fun started when we placed the record breaking Carp into the cradle. I got drenched; I looked like I’d taken a bath with it! Got Carl to grab the camera and we weighed it in the wet at 49lb 14oz. We called Lee and he raced round whilst having his dinner to confirm that 49lb (after taking 14oz of for the sling) was a Record Breaker!

Congratulations Mandy! You get to take home a personalised bottle of wine as a keepsake :-)

We Lost Some Fish....

We lost some fish. Not anything any lake owner wants to happen, but it does, and it did, to us. A few weeks ago, our fish had been on again off again spawning whilst the changeable weather had one foot in Spring and the other in Summer.  A couple of fish floated up and dismayed, we put it down to casualties of spawning as the fish were quite young. Then a few more floated up and we realised we had a problem. We got the generator started and put the pumps on to get the water moving and push oxygen into the lake.

We took some water samples and it looked like we’d had an ammonia spike, probably caused by the sudden intense heat followed by torrential storms. We treated the lakes and continued to run the pumps, but for some, it was too late. Problems with ammonia make it difficult for the fish to take in oxygen and it was the weaker fish that we saw float up, twelve tweens and teens but still a few of note - a couple of mid-20s and a mid-30. As animal lovers, any loss is heart-breaking, but we were lucky to have caught the problem early.

Saul's got it sussed!

34 year old van driver Saul Mulvey from Worcester, here for a weeks holiday with best buds Merlin Barnes and Kaspian Askham, came with a plan to catch himself a big one. However, their trip did not get off to an auspicious start; on arrival, the heavens’ opened and hailed down great big balls of ice, and the following day, the smaller carp were seen following each other around in the margins, a sure sign of spawning. So, he pre-baited a couple of spots over the next couple of days, going back up to farmhouse to take advantage of the creature comforts there. Strategically resting the lake during the days, and the nights, deciding Wednesday, was the day to actually get his rods wet. You’ve got to be in it to win it after all!

After much casting, and re-casting, and casting again just to make sure, Saul’s 18mm Ouest Malibu boilie was eventually picked up by the 45lb stunner known as the ‘Big Common’. Saul’s laid back strategy paid off and he gets to take home a bottle of the coveted La Gléhias Lake Record Holders wine.

For the record, Saul Mulvey is the current Men’s Common Carp Lake Record Holder having banked ‘The Big Common’ at 45lb on the nose, Wednesday 16th May 2018, at 18:00.

Well done Saul! Don’t let it go to your head!

Dad Catches Up!

Dutch entrepreneur, Pascal van der Hart, here for the week with his son Tim, has beaten the La Gléhias Lake Record Grass Carp. Having arrived Saturday afternoon, the pair were keen to get cracking and got their rods out asap. Pascal also baited up a spot that he felt would be productive for the following day, and it really paid off.

 

The gorgeous Grassie came out from half way down the Gorse Bank on a CC More Live System pop-up just after 3 o’clock on this sunny Sunday afternoon. At 27lb, the silver stunner is the biggest we’ve seen from Lake Lauren making it the second record breaking fish for the dynamic duo this week! Just a few hours earlier, twelve year old Tim pulled out a stonking 39lb Mirror earning him the title La Gléhias Junior Mirror Carp Lake Record Holder.

 

Pascal gets a personalised bottle of wine to take home with him for his trouble.

 

Well done Pascal, don’t let it go to your head!

Double Dutch!

Tim van der Hart has done it again! Tim of Broklede school in Breukelen Holland, here for the week with his dad Pascal, has broken yet another lake record! This time the La Gléhias Juniors Lake Record Common has been smashed by a staggering 10lb+, just one day after snatching the Juniors Lake Record Mirror from Jack Evans!

The Big Common came in at 13:30 on a CC Moore pop-up from the same spot as the other record breaking carp, just in front of one of the lily pad islands, closest to the inlet, and weighed in at a whopping 42lb 8oz.

Tim gets to take home another personalised bottle of low alcohol Breton Cidre as a keepsake.

Well done again Tim! You really showed the big guys how it’s done!

Sunday Mirror!

Twelve year old Tim van der Hart of Broklede School in Breukelen Holland, here for the week with his dad Pascal, has broken the La Gléhias Junior’s Lake Record Mirror!

 The gorgeous Carp known as Blackspot came in at around midday this Sunday on a CC Moore pop-up from just in front of one of the lily pad islands, closest to the inlet, and weighed in at a rather respectable 39lb. This is a fish we normally see at around the 35lb mark but over the last winter, the greedy lump has packed on a staggering 4lb. 

 Tim gets to take home a personalised bottle of low alcohol Breton Cidre with a Champagne style cork as a souvenir.

 Well done Tim!



Dad lifts the lump known as Blackspot for Tim :)

First Carp of 2018

Baptiste lands the first fish from Lake Lauren in 2018. A cracking 31lb Common originally stocked at 24lb. The run came just 15 minutes after casting a bait to the far bank! Well done Baptiste!

100lb+ TRIO!!!

Last week I was fortunate enough to witness THREE CARP ON THE BANK AT THE SAME TIME TOTALING OVER 100LB. Two were landed by Charlie Fisher and another by his his cousin. The catches included a 41+ common, a 31+ Mirror and another 29lb Common. Incredibly, while we were taking this photo Charlies third rod tore off causing a moment of absolute chaos before the fish unhooked itself halfway across the lake. PHEW!!!
