Congratulations on your weekender fella, defo worth the zip across the channel!

Can't believe it's so quiet here right now, Heron has switched back on after their little attempt at spawning last week and it's produced 50's for a few guys over the past 24hrs, although I lost mine due to the weed, first and last time I EVER leave my rods in, while I exit the swim.. Would've thrown the book at anyone else and have been kicking myself all day!! Managed to get it out, only for the fish to charge under the boat and cut me off on the backboard.. Bad angling!!!! Think it was the 'Unknown' judging by the scale pattern but didn't deserve it after that..

Kingfisher has thrown up a couple of 20kg fish (44+) over the same period, as has WildBoar of all places, getting a feeling that our new 'runs' water holds more surprises than we first thought

Attila is a tad slow but they've been spawning hard in there, which is good as they've pushed up to the top end of the lake now, meaning everyone can fish comfortably between 45-80 yards instead of launching singles to the horizon.

More reports as they happen, pics are always updated daily on Facebook for anyone that wants to see some of these creatures 'in the flesh'

************ NEWSFLASH *************

Kingfisher lake has produced a new 60lb Carp! Details are a bit sketchy right now but we'll provide you with an update as soon as possible.. Elsewhere, Heron has given up one of it's prized assets to Tom Ison, who banked the 'Long Common' just before leaving first thing this morning. The fish weighed over 55lb (25kg) for the first time! As reported yesterday, Paul Matthews had a new 50lb fish from Fox lake and there have been a further 12 different 40's reported on the complex today! Karl Westcott has been bagging up, taking fish for fun somewhere on Fox, with 5 fish this afternoon alone! Andy McWilliams and John Andrews have both managed to winkle out PB's too, with fish over 43lb, the biggest going 45lb 8oz! Over on Heron, Andre Schnitzler's party have got amongst 'em as well, with a few over the 40lb barrier including a very large (for this time of year) 'Shoulders' at 82lb 8oz and the legendary 'Bruno' at a mammoth 65lb 8oz.. Good times (and good weather ahead)

There you go, Jez.. Hope that helps? The big girl has done more time on the bank over the past few weeks than I have (lol), after playing hide'n'seek from xmas until mid may, it has been out five times, ranging in weight from 80.00 to 84.00 on the nose! The above is only Bruno's second visit to the bank since the turn of the year and if you haven't been paying attention to the new FB page, Humpy is now over 70lb too!!

Kind regards,

Ru

Evening all,

While it is not (entirely) down to me to dictate how you go about fishing at Abbey, I think I'm in a fairer position than most to comment on what is and isn't deemed acceptable and I'd have to whole heartedly disagree with Gaz on this one!!

While big beds of bait have and will continue to have their day at the right time of year, I cannot condone baiting up to this degree in the current climate.
As everybody knows, the past winter has been a grueller and as such, the lakes (and to a lesser extent, the fish), are still 'waking up' right now, we're only just seeing the first buds poking through on the branches of most of our trees and none of the lakes are ready for such a method. End of!

The lakes are all fishing quite well of late but and it's a big but, the majority of successful Anglers at this time are scoring by fishing small, tight areas of bait (i.e bags and the odd spombful) in the shallower water and also on the zigs in mid-water..

As much as I greatly appreciate someone tossing a quarter of a tonne of grub into one of the lakes to feed our beautiful fish, if I find/see/hear of anyone doing it until summer is officially announced by the trillions of (self-proclaimed) acknowledged experts in the field of carping on Facebook and the Forums, I shall personally escort you to the north facing slip road at J9 for potentially spoiling the fishing of others who've paid a lot of money for the privilege of being at Abbey. Not only that but I can well live without the stench of piles of rotting, uneaten bait as it pops up off the lakebed over the coming weeks..

Rant over

PS This wasn't a personal dig in the slightest Gaz, my best haul at Abbey came to a similar sized banquet I laid on for 'em a few years ago but there's a time and a place. We have only just got over the shock of a recent Angler's exploits, when he proceeded to whack out 100kg of the cheapest boilies he could find and killed one end of the lake stone dead for 14 days!!

Regards,

Ru
