Catfish Cause Commotion for Merlin

Merlin Barnes has managed to break the longstanding Men’s Lake Record Catfish, last recorded at 55lb2oz by Des Chapman in 2010!

Our muscly moggies have defeated most, but not Merlin. The van driver from Hereford, here for the week with best buddy and two time lake record holder Saul Mulvey, came geared for the task of teetering the seemingly infrangible tadpole record, and he did.

Having chosen a saucy spot between the two islands, close to the reeds in the shallows, Merlin trickled in a mash-up of our own natural coloured Ouest Malibus and Mainlines fruity bright yellow Essential Cell boilies from around mid-day after setting up. The Cell pop-up hook bait and pva bag with more Cell were stealthily bait boated out to nestle in with the freebies. Merlin continued to offer light smatterings of freebies over the hook throughout the day which eventually tore off later that evening.

The La Gléhias monster took Merlin on a merry old dance around the lake, all the while being cheered on by pal Saul over the top of his lap-top whilst continuing to enjoy the movie “Gangster Squad” with Josh Brolin on Netflix. Merlin finally bagged the beauty after almost half an hour of battling the record breaking fish. But that’s not the end of the story. In addition to the 63lb 4oz record breaker, another of Merlin’s rods tore off before giving him a chance to return the first giant tadpole.

The second moggy was taken mid water off the old stream bed, a couple of meters up from the sluice and came in at 40lb 4oz on a Ouest Malibu boilie tipped with a yellow plastic sweetcorn pop-up over a smattering of the same Malibu / Cell freebie mixture as before. It’s always the way. You wait for one giant catfish and two come along at once!

For the record, as of 22:15 on Thursday 27th March 2019, Merlin Barnes is officially the Men’s Catfish Lake Record holder at 63lb and 4oz.

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

Saul Smashes Lake Record for a Second Time

Saul Mulvey visited us here at La Gléhias in May of last year looking to bag himself a big one, and he did. The 35 year old van driver from Worcester walked away with the Men’s Common Carp Lake Record title, courtesy of ‘The Big Common’ at 45lb on the nose.

Having found our Ouest Malibus pretty darn successful last year, Saul ordered some more of the same, along with some La Gléhias Parti-Mix for this trip.

Despite enjoying some lovely sunshine this week, the deeper waters are still quite cold, with the carp spending much of the days up in the shallows where the water is a little warmer. Using winter baiting tactics and observing where the carp were showing, Saul sent the bait boat out with 2 hair-rigged Ouest Malibus on a bed of La Gléhias Parti-Mix about two thirds up the Gorse Bank to a promising looking cave under the gorse. Saul’s natural angling instincts paid off as the spot came up with the goodies and he landed the gorgeous record breaking 47lb Common. Good to know, we don’t believe this is the same Big Common that Saul caught last year. We’re calling this “ABC” aka “Another Big Common”.

For the record, Saul Mulvey is the current Men’s Common Carp Lake Record holder as of 14:56 on Wednesday 26th March 2019, having banked the beautiful Common at 47lb,

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

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!
