Kingfisher Lake

Dave O’Dell returned for his 6th trip and this time bought son Scott and son-in-law Stuart for a weekender trip – unfortunately the lake had its first bad week of the year with only two fish caught – 50.7M, 18.5M

Very disappointing return for the three day trip, perhaps reminding us that fishing is France does not necessarily guarantee multiple fish. Still Scott doubled his PB and went home happy after catching our 49th 50+ fish of the year.

Heron Lake

Mark and Terry returned for their second trip of the year and their 14th trip in total – 26.8M, 34.0M, 33.0M, 20.0M, 28.0M, 29.8M, 22.0C, 20.8C, 31.4M, 36.8M, 42.4M, 30.8M, 29.9M, 22.0C, 32.0M, 38.0C, 27.0C, 30.0M, 30.0M, 26.2M, 30.2M, 20.0C, 28.8M, 43.0M, 20.0C, 24.0M, 33.2M, 33.9M, 33.0C.

Terry was back at Puyravaud for his usual September slot and ended up beating his own records from last Septembers trip. In just 5 days fishing, he landed 23 fish for a total weight of 979lbs and an average weight of over 42lbs. His haul was 5 x 30’s, 14 x 40’s and 4 x 50’s with a best a couple of ounces under 56lbs. Terry landed most of his fish using garlic and liver flavoured boilies or peach and pepper wafters.

So Terry leaves with the record for the most fish caught on Kingfisher by a single angler in a week and also the most fish caught in a single day (7). He also managed a number of PB’s including his largest common at just over 45lbs!

Terry and Chris will be back next September to try and improve on this weeks result – that will be difficult, but who knows!

We had 6 x 50’s out this week across both lakes and ended up recording our 48th 50lbs+ fish of the season – a massive improvement on previous years with still time for a lot more in 2017! Here’s to the half century coming very soon!
