June 9th - 16th 2018, rain, carp, rain and more carp!

Well what a week that was, 3 days of rain with one day that was truely biblical! In 8 hours we had 90mm or rain and the lake came up withing 20 minutes, the pipe was opened again and we worked hard to get the level down as quickly as possible. From a fishing point of view the week started oddly, the temperature dropped and the fish started spawning, not all of them but a few. That didn't stop the fish getting on the munch though as the bites started almost immediately. Even with the huge amount of water coming in and the temperature dropping by 7 degrees the bites continued all week, especially in Rolo's and The Channel with the lads having 32 of the 40 fish landed for the week. The majority

Life after spawning!

There is a reason we call March/April and early May 'clubbing season' is pretty easy to understand with big carp from all over Europe on social media and in the magazines. As they wake up from their winter slumber it always takes them a month or so to be totally on ther guard. But after spawning in my exoeriance things always change after winter, banker baits, colours and methods often seem to become redundant and new baits and methods are called for, it always seems a tad trickier too! Unlike many waters in France we schedule a 2 or 3 week close down for mid May hoping to give them peace and quiet as they spawn or at least shortly after so they can recover in peace and have a big free feed.
