Windmill Lakes - Catch reports and feedback 2011

Recommended Posts

Hi Everybody

 

The 2011 season if finally underway and what a fantastic start. The Paul White party were down from Preston on their first French fishing trip and they seem to have thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience - so much so they are coming back next year!

 

Within 24 hours Matt Balch had destroyed his PB of 22lbs with a stunning 40lb Mirror and followed it up with a 64 lb Cat, then he beat his PB again with the same 44.10 lb Mirror that came out earlier in the week to Vinny Balazs. Ben Snell caught the biggest Cat at 66 lb and Paul White had a 57lb Cat.

 

The final catch report was: Carp:- 40, 28, 21.4, 26.2, 44.10, 37, 38, 20.02, 35, 44.10, 37.5 & 33.12 lbs plus 36 doubles.

Catfish:- 66, 55, 64, & 57 lb

 

Their comments were:- " Had a fantastic week. Food and fishing were 5*. Booking again for next year. Biggest Carp 44.10lb, biggest Cat 66lb. Thanks to Dave & Sue for their hospitality and help during the week"

(Check out their photos on our website)

 

As I said a great start to the season. :D:D:D

Another group from Preston! Brian Cunny caught the first 40 of the week with a 41.14 Mirror but was beaten in the end by Mick Z who landed a stunning 43.10 lb Mirror but unfortunatly Mick got Brian to take the photos!

(obviously he blamed the camera!) :lol:

 

Final catch report was:- Carp: 25.02, 28.12, 36.10, 41.14, 29.04, 36., 21., 24., 43.10, 33.03, 36.02, 32.04, 37.08 & 38.11 lb plus 11 doubles. CATS:- 48.04 & 29.02 lb

"Excellent fishery, fantastic food, my best week in France upto now. Will come back again."
