Well what can I say apart from the fishing has been very tough all round over the last few weeks although some nice fish and some big fish too have graced the nets of the anglers and personal bests have been broken the numbers have been low compared to some previous weeks but I did manage to capture a 58.06lb mirror on film.Regarding The fishing and makes it a good thing is it’s not just our venue and our lakes, but it seems to be widespread throughout France at the moment with all the strange weather patterns and the drought conditions that France is going through too which has affected a lot of venues, not all but a lot, at Eden’s we have good water sources but we are starting to also see the effects of not having any decent rain this year again.With weather forecasts each weeks showing storms and rain we all hope yes at last but then it seams to never come but if it does it just seams to be pointless foggy drizzle that just about keeps the grass green.But hey carp fishing is carp fishing and we cannot have it all fantastic and served on a dinner plate all the time although for the customers we do wish in hope.
When fishing is slow it also become frustrating when the anglers don’t land all there fish either which makes matters worse and catch reports even lower,sometimes its angler error but its also bad angling from previous anglers fishing the lakes and leaving lost tackle in them or in the fish without reporting it to me and sometimes its as much as 60 to 100 yards of line carrying full setups this then causes the anglers that are playing fish lose there fish and runs a vicious circle of events.I have been trying to monitor as much as possible and although it has become less this season it still happens pretty much each week at some point. We are now getting close to the end of our season so we are all hoping for some good captures for the clients to finish strong. Anyway I will just put a total and weights of the fish that have been landed on the lakes the last couple of weeks
