Het laatste karpernieuws van Bears Lake - Mei 2015

Onderstaand vindt u een prachtig en uitgebreid verslag van de eigenaar van Bears Lake, Charlie, over de visserij in mei:
May has proven to be a difficult month for fishing at times although with some great fish caught and an amazing average weight.
The weather has generally improved although still with some occasional periods of heavy rain, particularly at the start of the month.
As I write this, we still await the main spawning period although with the lake temperature currently at 17.5 degrees Celsius and warm weather forecast, this is likely to very soon.
The lake has been quite lightly fished this month. We had no full week booking at the start of the month and so had a group of three local anglers over the first weekend. This coincided with a period of torrential rain. They fished through this for two days without any action. Their luck changed on the Sunday morning when the weather began to improve. I recommended a change of bait and a move to the shallows. This initially paid off for one of the anglers, Benoit who caught a personal best Mirror of 19.16kg (42lb 4oz) shortly followed by another of 17.24kg (38lbs). He was very happy as this beat his previous best by 9kgs.He then let his two friends fish his swim and each also landed their personal bests at 17.15kg (37lb 13oz) and 14.17kg (31lb 4oz).
We then had a gap and then a single angler, Jim, for 10 days. During this period, the fishing was difficult although this was also a learning period for Jim who had come to the lake in the hope of fulfilling a lifetime ambition of catching a 15kg carp. Over his trip he constantly developed his skills and this was eventually rewarded with a personal best fish of 17.8kg (39lb 4oz).
We had a free week after Jim’s trip which was a pity as the fish were feeding well and I’m sure good catches would have been made. I managed a few hours myself on two occasions and caught quickly each time. These were also all really good fish with a new personal best for myself and new 50lb+ fish for the lake at 23.64kg (52lb 2oz). On the second evening I quickly caught a Mirror of exactly 15.42kg (34lbs) which was followed later with a new lake record Common Carp for the lake at 19.11kg (42lbs 2oz).
Last week’s party was a short 5-day father and son trip (Stuart and Charlie). The fishing was again difficult although 10 year old Charlie managed to catch a Mirror of 22.25kg (49lb 1oz) – an amazing catch for someone so young. Father Stuart also caught a stunning personal best Common Carp of 17.86kg (39lbs 6oz).
Our current group of anglers are just starting their trip and have managed three nice Mirrors at 12.98kg (28lb 10oz), 16.33kg (36lbs) and 20.07kg (44lbs 4oz).
So a generally difficult month although one which is quite difficult to assess due to the small number of anglers. The size of fish is, however, very encouraging and for the month the average weight of carp caught was 16.33kg (36lbs). This included several fish which were caught at all time high including a new 50lb fish for the lake.
We will be increasingly busy over the summer and with the exception of 3 weeks where we have commitments in the UK, the lake is now fully booked through to October. As the lake is fished more consistently and as more bait is fed into the lake, I expect the catch rates to improve.
We still have some vacancies in October and November which is usually a very good period for fishing in the Dordogne. This is typically ahead of the cold winter weather and the fish typically feed really well in periods of mild weather. By means of example, the mild weather continued through to Christmas last year. During one such period in mid-December I caught carp of 15.51kg (34lb 3oz), 17.69kg (39lbs) and 21.88kg (48lbs 4oz) in one crazy 80 minute feeding spell!
Hopefully I will have some more big fish and personal bests to report next month.
