Mike and his family braved the latest quarantine rules and visited Puyravaud for the first time. Mike fished mornings and evenings only, spending the rest of the time around the pool with the rest of the Bebb clan.

Mike soon found himself into the fish and undoubtedly benefited from cooler temperatures. Sticking to a number of spots and baiting regularly certainly did the trick as Mike went looking to beat his PB of 52lbs.

In total Mike managed 31 fish, over a thousand pounds in weight, a new PB of 54lbs and a grassy PB of 42lbs 4ozs. That’s a pretty good week’s fishing by anyone’s standards, especially when you consider the average weight was over 36lbs.

The family enjoyed using the pool everyday and the youngsters even got into the act, fishing our little stream.

These Puyravaud regulars arrived to very hot temperatures but still managed to bag some lovely fish on the trip.

Badge waited for most of the trip before landing his PB of 61lbs 12ozs. Dave O bagged the most fish including yet another Puyravaud 60 for him.

And finally, Dave L decided to fish Kingfisher and eventually found the fish with a best of 56lbs. It just shows that the lake knowledge gained by these guys from at least half a dozen trips really does pay off.

Tony gets his lake record champagne

In the last 10 days we have seen a new Common record and then a new lake record for Heron Lake. First, regular visitor, Kevin Watts used his strong knowledge of Heron to tempt a 60lb 4oz common out of Gaz & Geezers swim using an 18mm garlic and liver boilie topped with a 12mm pop up of the same flavour. This fish is the first 60+ common at our venue!

On Sunday 19th July the Broomhall group joined us for their second trip and Tony did not wait long for his first fish – a massive 64lb 7oz mirror that easily broke our current lake record. The same snowman set up caught this beauty as well.

We have also had a new grass carp lake record of 45lbs 2oz, so the records are tumbling as we get back into the season. The fish have obviously been enjoying the large amounts of carpet feed, we have been putting in during lockdown!
