Well done buddy. I think that in your case it's more about the quality than the quantity.

It's really surprising how some parts of the lake just shut down, when I was there 19 was doing a few fish and I had a few on the RH side of the island too.

Do you every fish it when it's warmer, I was wondering what pegs you think are better at other times of the year, sounds like you know so much more about the lake than most do.

Lee has the right spotsmans figure for darts but I doubt he would want to take Tom on at football as he might lose.



Well done on the Scar common Tom great Christmas present, good job you asked Lee round he's had plenty of practice lifting lumps out the water ask him about when Teddy broke his leg in peg 16 at Christmas and we lifted him out of the water bearing in mind Teddy being about 20 stone at the time, I was fishing in 17 Lee had a fish on at the time as well.👍

18 has a few,dont know the weigts
11 was playing their first fish earlier today
19 nothing
Island nothing- week before there was Rainbow regular and very well known angler,cought 1 small carp and left on Friday. Its not as hot swim as it used to be I think...thats just my observation
6 two fish (26kg biggest)
5 two fish (23kg biggest)

Well Happy Christmas to you all out there at the lake

When I was there at the end of November there was a bloke that I got chatting with at the shower block who was in 14, he said that he had a 70 while his mate was up the club house , he also said that one side of the swim is better than the other and that thy were going to swap for the second week. Good mates!

I noticed that the fish seemed to be on the move towards the areas of 18,17,16 and 14 as it got colder, is that usually the case for Rainbow?

I think that the island was good at the beginning of November but a bit hit and miss towards the end?

All correct. Couldn’t sort out the fish without Lee’s help...just couldn’t lift it from the water

Apparently,it picks up the weight at the beggining of the year...lets hope it will get back to 90lb+...

The report I have seen was that it was 88lbs 6ozs from the photographer and a very experienced carp angler, apparently that fish is about 6 to 8lbs below it´s normal weight.
