Lake Madine becalmed…….
Waiting for the lastest updates from the shores of Lac Madine but this is the latest from Stewart yesterday evening.
This morning started with only a fine breakfast and no carp photos to accompany it, as we had hoped for when we retired to our bivvies last night! Rob has moved off his spots now and has gone a little further out to about 190m. He couldn’t find many features but has spotted a few large fish on the bottom that he thinks could be large carp. We have managed to avoid the Catfish so far despite the pellet we have introduced to supplement the boilies and keep the attraction active in each spot. We are getting pestered by Bream and Roach but not to the extent that they are destroying our hardened baits.
My right hand rod is still on the same spot for a second day, a nice plateau in 13ft of water just over the weedbeds. I have moved my other rod directly in line with it but about 30m further out, and there are plenty of fish showing on the sounder. I feel that tonight we will catch and I reckon we will have two proper lumps!
We received an official complaint from another pair of anglers regarding the position of our baits relative to their baited area, and this was followed up by the Head Marshal Andy Chambers, who duly confirmed that our bait positions were aok and we were not breaching any of the rules. Drama over and we are now fully focussed on nailing a carp or two.
Official complait from marshall Michael Woolsey (bit of finger pointing going on there)
Confidence is still high, and rightly so as this swim chucks out some giants from time to time, including a 30kg Common and a double linear of 28kg!
The wind has dropped right back now and we can see plenty of fizzing over our rods.
Come On Team JRC UK!!
Catch you tomorrow with the good news!
Up to 21.15 yesterday evening a total of 54 carp had been recorded the last of these fish breaking the aggregate overall weight record for the Classic. This fish brought the total weight recorded by the team on SBS10 to 350.5kg (23 fish). Sat on the island across from here our boys on SBS13 are still waiting along with many more teams for their first fish………
With time one their hands our intrepid boys shot this short video on day two……
