Holme Fen Fishery – Meadows Lake continues to produce some outstanding catches for the few groups that are booked on prior to the big opening in July this year. The Lake has now produced an incredible 21 different fish over 40lb, including Captain Jack at 55lbs plus! Eighty one percent of all fish caught have been over 30lbs, including a fair proportion over 35lb. The lake is open for anyone to fish from the end of July onwards; you can book 48 or 96 hour sessions on line at www.holmefenfishery.co.uk The Lake will only be open for 4 nights per week and then closed again in November. Recent captures are too numerous to list, but some very nice ones are pictured in this report, including a lovely forty plus Mirror for Colin Lambert and a new PB and ladies lake record for Liz Hicks.
Willow Lake at Fenland Fisheries is producing the goods for some anglers; Terry Holmes used our Squidly Diddly boilies to bank 10 fish from peg 20 during a 3 night stay which included 3 Thirties! Steve Calver bagged Frisby at 43lb also from peg 20, Paul Pitcher managed a 30lb plus mirror on the Coco Fruit from peg 13 , Darren Underwood had a 37lb 40z Mirror on The Cell from peg 6 and Chris Fountain had a PB 40lb Common from peg 13. David Williams had a big hit which included 9 Carp with Commons up to 34lb plus and a 42lb Mirror. Located on the same site Vermuyden Lake is producing some great fishing for our day and night fishing visitors, Mark Batty had 18 Carp to 29lb during a three night session and Simon Mccoll had an eleven fish catch. My favourite capture however, is Lewis Butlers Mirror that he stalked in the margins using floating crust, a fine piece of old school angling.
Our Whittle Mere syndicate at Teakettle Fisheries is producing a few nice scaly mirrors but pride of place has to go to Steve Evans, who banked a stunning, previously uncaught mirror of 32lbs plus on the neighboring Thorney Mere.
At Woodpecker Lake on Earith Lakes Fisheries, things have picked up well thru April and into early May, with some lovely fish being reported. Syndicate member Peter used the Coco Fruit to bank a brace of Thirty Pound plus Commons, and the Mirror known as Patricia at 40lb 1oz!! Ian Harle used the same bait to bank Mirrors of 31lb and 38lb plus! More news, from this great venue in our next report .
