Fantastic Week Across Both Lakes – October 2021


Kevin, Chris and Charlie returned for yet another tilt at Heron Lake with Chris R trying his luck on Kingfisher Lake this time round. Weather was pretty cold for the time of year with signs the fish were moving into deeper water. Fishing was reasonably tough, but effort was rewarded with some quality fish. Kevin caught our big common for the 5th time………….yes the 5th time. Weighing in at 65.10lbs, this represented a new PB and was soon followed up with a 64.4 mirror. Not to be out done Chris chimed in with his own PB – a 65.4 mirror making it three good 60’s in the week! 9 fish in total for an average weight of 51lbs+!

On Kingfisher, Chris R was also having a quality week with a 56.12 mirror to kick things off followed by three other 50’s, the largest of which tipped the scales at just over 59lbs. 8 fish in total with an average weight of over 47lbs. Really great to see this lake back to its best, getting fished regularly and producing some lovely results. All the hard work renovating this lake over 2 years has paid off and 2022 should be a great year on Kingfisher.

All in all, a very encouraging week with 17 fish caught and an average weight of 49lbs 15ozs. Have to be very pleased with that given the quality of the catches. All 4 anglers went away happy and will be back multiple times in 2022.
