Who says late season weeks are slow!!!

10 to 24 October 2020

A tough couple of weeks on Badgers Holt for our visiting anglers,  Cold temperatures, overnight frosts and lots of rain meant that the water temperature drastically dropped over the two weeks.

Steve and Chris ended their week with two carp to 42lb and unfortunately three losses.  Successful baits were a combination of the Serreire house boilies fished over Coppens pellet.

Vernon unfortunately got the worst of the weather and conditions during his week and returned home empty handed.  Truly gutted for him as i know he worked hard trying numerous tactics.

Hopefully as weather conditions again stable the fishing will improve.

Tough conditions again on Badgers Holt this week with high pressure and blistering temperatures.

Mitch and Dave however remained focused and were rewarded with six fish.  Their haul included 4 x 30s to 38lb, Arthur the cat at 82lb and one of the rarer koi’s at 27lb 11oz.

Mitch must like ‘Arthur’ as he has now caught him three years in a row!

Arthur says thanks for the bait and he will see you next year!

What a difference a week makes!

Unfortunately for Dan he had to contend with high pressure and temperatures which made the fishing hard going,  In addition he was only able to fish until Thursday night due to a family emergency.

Despite these difficulties he still managed to tempt a personal best mirror of 63lb 12oz and lost another lump at the net.

Dan used his own boilies in conjunction with the Coppens pellet and house particle.

Congratulations Dan on your PB.

It was a pleasure welcoming our first anglers to Badgers Holt this week.  Our German duo Artur and Martin didn’t have the best of conditions with high pressure and high temperatures but ended the week with four carp to 38lb and a loss.  Unfortunately the big girls evaded capture but ‘Arthur’ the cat did make an appearance at a best ever weight of 82lb.  Looking forward to seeing you both again in 2022.
