Lake Latest

I am very pleased to be able to report that the lake which has been quite weedy in certain areas at times this year is clearing nicely….. The weed is receding and dying back. It was due in no small part to the heatwave summer we have endured in France this year, with temperatures way above 40 degrees as a common occurrence. 
 

This has at times led to testing conditions for some of our anglers and they have worked hard to overcome the issues they faced with many large fish gracing their nets….
 

The weed that is left is primarily affecting the area between Jacks and Socials, with smaller areas of weed from Cabin down to Stones. All swims with the exception at present of Social 2 are fishable……
 

We have guys with us this week, and all are catching fish, Five for Barn swim, well into double figures for the two guys in Double swim upto 39lb's plus and eight so far for Paul in the Cabin swim with two fish over 36lb's.

I have included a few photos from the Cabin swim this week…..

Molyneux Report to 30th March 2019.

We only had the one angler joining us this week. Last years cold snap at the start of march had obviously had an impact on those early birds who normally make an early visit…

Sadly the weather this year has been quite mild and this particular week we had a mini heatwave and Ray our angler spent most of the week in shorts and crocs. Quite Bizarre weather patterns we seem to be having over the last few years…

Ray turned up and was made up to find he would be having the lake to himself, and after a good look around he decided on Socials after seeing fish on the back of the island…

His first fish came at 3am on the Sunday morning, a 32lb 8oz Mirror, he also lost two other good takes. At 9pm Sunday evening he caught his second of the trip a 37lb 2oz Mirror.

Monday saw no fish caught at all, Tuesday was a little different with three fish before breakfast. A 33lb 8oz mirror the first, followed by a 33lb 6oz Mirror, and lastly a 38lb 6oz Mirror.

Wednesday he slowed a little due in no part to the scorching weather we were enjoying… At 6am Ray landed a 17lb Common, followed by a 20lb 2oz common around an hour later….

Thursday and there were four fish landed. 21lb Common at 8am, 20lb 4oz Mirror at 9am, 44lb 4oz Commonm at 10.30am, and a 22lb 8oz common.

Friday and Ray added a few more to his tally A 29lb common, 21lb 2oz mirror, 24lb Mirror, and finished off with a 25lb 4oz Mirror.

A good weeks fishing, sadly the thirties which he had seen at the start of the week moved off leaving him twenties for the following day or two until the forty four pound common made his day..

Good to meet you Ray, hopefully see you again.

Lake looks pretty in the April sunshine.....

Whilst it looks idyllic, the Cold Northerly is still biting hard. Thankfully it is due to change direction over the next 24hrs and I think all the lads round lake will be pleased to hear that......

Some Cracking fish out already this week from Jacks and Double swim, fingers crossed it continues for them.......

Weekly Report to 6th April 2019

Weekly Report 30th March to 6th April 2019…..

Saturday morning and our new anglers for the week arrived. Once more old friends returning to Molyneux to join us. The amount of returning anglers gives Helen and I a great sense of having it right, and of course the friends we have made over the last nine years will last a lifetime…
 

Danny, Andrew,  and John all visited us approx 2 yrs ago, this time they brought newcomer Steve with them…
 

We also welcomed Michael and his father Melvin back to the lake for the second time…
 

With Michael and Melvin in the Cabin for the week, the four remaining anglers spaced themselves out around the lake…. Danny and Andrew chose the Socials, Steve picked Jacks, and John set up camp in Double swim…
 

The weather continued on in a similar fashion to previous week, with gorgeous sunshine, but a cool Northerly knocking  the temperatures down. No fish were caught on the Saturday night, but Danny caught a 36lb mirror on Sunday morning at around 7am. An hour and a half later and he landed mirror, this one weighing 27lb 8oz.


At 3pm Steve hooked his first of the week a 22lb Common falling to his left hand rod… At 8.30pm Andrew in Social 2 caught his first a common of 44lb 8oz… 

 
Monday morning and we woke to utterly cold frost, Danny landed a 13lb common at 7am, which proved to be the only fish of the day.

Tuesday and the cold wind dominated the weather, and sadly there were no fish out.
 

Wednesday dawned cold, but the sun brought some welcome relief and the fish started feeding…
 

Andrew landed a 34lb mirror at 1.30am, Michael in Cabin landed a 38lb 5oz common at 3.30am, Andrew had a 15lb common at around 6am, and Steve who had now moved into Stones swim, this meant he wasn't facing into the teeth of the cold wind, caught a 22lb 12oz common. At 10.30am Melvin in the Cabin caught his first a 29lb common…

Later that day, john caught his first of the week a 27lb mirror. At 6pm Danny had a 31lb 14oz mirror.
 

Thursday and Andrew was summoned from sleep by a screaming delkim to land a 23lb 10oz common. At first light John caught a 32lb mirror, 7am saw Danny land a 29lb 10oz mirror, and a short while later he lifted the net around a 38lb 14oz mirror.


At 4pm Danny had a 13lb mirror, which he followed a short while later with a 32lb 13oz common. 
Friday and Andrew landed another small common, this time 14lb 7oz. Saturday morning arrived and as we were all giving up hope of another fish, Melvin had a 32lb mirror.

Whilst there were not so many fish caught as I would have liked, there was no doubting the weather played its part. The continued cold nights and chilling Northerly wind is certainly keeping the fish less mobile than they would normally be at this time of the year….

It was however great to welcome back old friends, and I hope they all had a good week regardless.

High winds, Hailstones and one or two fish……..

Weekly Report for March 9th to 16th 2019

Our first anglers of March were old friends having visited for a few of the previous years. Barry, Chris, Nathan, Jamie and Paul were welcomed back with a cup of tea and a quick catch up and off we went for a wander around the lake.

The guys having seen one or two fish showing during the walk, and were quick to decide where they all wanted to fish for the week.
Barry chose cabin swim, Nathan went into Barn swim, while Chris and Nathan headed off to the socials. Paul chose Jacks swim.

Paul caught the first fish of the trip with a 19lb common on Saturday evening….

On Sunday morning Paul caught his second, a 33lb 6oz mirror. Jamie chipped in later the same day with a 31lb mirror.

7am on Monday and Nathan landed his first of the trip with a 31lb mirror gracing his net.
Jamie managed two for the day with a 26lb 4oz mirror and a 16lb common.

Tuesday morning saw the wind increase and a few heavy showers…. Paul caught a 32lb common, Jamie managed a 30lb 12oz mirror, and Chris landed a 26lb common.

Wednesday and the weather was seriously horrible with high winds gusting at up to 50-60kmph Nathan had a 25lb 6oz mirror, Barry Caught a 37lb 8oz mirror from Cabin, Jamie had a 38lb 6oz mirror, Nathan landed a 16lb common, which he followed up later in the day with a 33lb mirror.
Thursday and threatened winds of unto 76kmph failed to materialise to the joy of the anglers who had made sure they were all secure and locked down ready for it…..

The fish thankfully kept coming with Paul landing a 26lb 3oz mirror, Barry an 11lb common, nathan had a 36lb mirror, Chris not to be outdone by his son, landed a 36lb mirror also, and Nathan finished the evening off with a 18lb common.

Friday and Nathan started the day off with a 27lb 8oz mirror, Chris had 19lb common, and Nathan a 32lb mirror. 

Saturday morning and prior to departing there was still time for two more Molyneux residents to visit the bank. Jamie having a 23lb 4oz mirror, and Nathan rounded off a good weeks angling with a 38lb 4oz mirror.

Always great to see the Harlow boys visit, and Helen and I enjoy their company. 
Not as many carp caught as on some of their previous trips, but the mix of weather during the week made for a strange session.

Chopping Trees, Building Fences and Catching Forties...

Workparty week February 2019...

 

Friday 25th February saw our old friend Glenn arrive to help out with a workparty weekend. He was without his usual partner in crime Lloyd due to work commitments and had managed to find another willing victim, err helpful worker Bradley to give us a hand with the heavy jobs around the place...

 

This Years tasks were to build a fence around Helens garden in an effort to stop anglers traipsing all over her flower beds as they come to the door. We also had to remove some fallen boughs which had come down with the winter winds. and some serious tidying on and around the islands.

 

Glenn and Bradley set themselves up in the Social swims, although the bitterly cold icy nights put paid to any thought os catching carp for the first few nights... It was bizarre weather with sunshine and temperatures reaching almost 20c during the day, but the nights were a reminder this was early March still.

Tuesday night and Glenn managed a breakthrough with a 33lb mirror, for both Molyneuxs and Glenn's  first fish of the season. He followed this up early the following morning with a long 34lb mirror.

On Thursday there was a dramatic C change in the weather, pressure dropped significantly, the clouds rolled in on the ever increasing wind and the rain began to fall. Perfect conditions at last, and the fish responded. Glenn caught during the evening, a 13lb 8oz common taking the bait, followed overnight by a 24lb mirror and finally his first long awaited forty Pounder form the lake with a 40lb mirror.

To say he was chuffed the following morning was putting it mildly, Brad on the other hand despite fishing hard to the large gravel spot had only managed tow tench to 10lb 8oz at this point...

Friday saw Glenn continue his form, with a 34lb 8oz mirror, a 38lb 8oz mirror overnight, and early on Saturday morning he caught his second forty of the trip with a 40lb 4oz mirror.

A fantastic week with some cracking company, we got all the work done we had planned plus one or two other wee jobs and so we waved the lads off pleased to have seen them again. Thanks so much guys, you worked hard and it is much appreciated. The lake is looking lovely and we are officially ready for our first anglers of the year who arrive this forthcoming Saturday...

We are looking forward to the new season with much anticipation...

Lee and Charlie's week......

Last week, Lee, his wife Claire and his son Charlie joined us, they stayed in the cabin and fished from the swim in front......

It was a tough week with the heatwave continuing, temps of 39 in the shade some dayside the fish and us humans very lethargic...... 

A few lovely tench were caught during the first few days of their stay as they got the swim baited as they wanted. However at approx 3pm on Tuesday Charlie managed to land a 77lb catfish, an incredible beast made more so when you think it is bigger than Charlie..... Fantastic angling and made up for him...

Dad had to wait a little longer sadly, after a couple of lost fish he finally caught a 39lb mirror on Friday night....

Lovely family, and a pleasure to have at the lake, well done to them both for their respective fish.....
