Tarde Boys hauling En Francais again this week!

Post by silver fox on Tue Sep 14, 2010 5:40 pm

Not to be outdone by our exploits the week before last Tardebigge Anglers are at it again this week on two different French venues! Keith, Si Deakin and Davy are fishing a 10acre pit in Normandy. So far Keith leads the way numerically with up to press 13 fish to mid 30's. Si's had 6 including two forties and Davy, after a swim move was off the mark this afternoon with a 29. Mark Walters is fishing another venue witha couple of his mates. He text Keith this morning with a list of fish too long to remember! It's well into double figues though with a 20lb cat and carp up to 39 plus so far! It looks like Keith or possibly Mark might be heading for a similar tally to jim's 32. I reckon any one of them is on for a biggie before saturday morning!? Watch this space and feel free to add any updates as you pick them up yourselves!

Hiya Chaps

Well, what can I say? WHAT a week. Me, Davvy and Si Deaks have had a right laugh (I had a feeling we would), some fantastic fishing, plenty of local refreshment and just generally, one of the best weeks I've ever experienced. It was my first time to France, and I'm now wondering why I haven't done it before.

We got to the fishery at 8am, after a gruelling journey. The 3 other lads who were going to be fishing with us (Ned, Rob and Mark) were already there, so we introduced ourselves, and had a walk around the lake. It soon became apparent that one end of the lake had had a hammering the week before, with one bloke having landed 44 fish (a lake record apparently), and those around him having 20+ fish, while up the other end of the lake, lads had had 8 - 12 fish in the week.

Fine - we tossed a coin for swims. Team Davvy or Team Mark (the other lads). Whichever team won the toss had first choice. Team who lost had choice of whichever swims were left. Davvy tossed up the coin and called (it was to be the first of a few coin toss losses for Dav). The other lads won, and plumped for the "going swims", and indeed, the ones we'd have chosen if we had our way. Bollocks. So, plan B was put into action, with Dav and Deaks going in the only other double swim (because apparently, they like to re-enact scenes from Brokeback Mountain), whilst I went as far away from everyone as I could. In fact, I couldn't see any of the other anglers at all for my first three nights.

From here on, I'll only tell my bit, as I'm sure Dav and Deaks would rather tell their own view of things. However, Dav and Deaks had to toss for the swims in their double, and Dav lost that one, which was to have a profound effect on his fishing for the week. Plus, there were due to be two other anglers turning up on the Thursday, which caused us problems with planning any moves etc (there are 11 swims on the lake). These people didn't turn up, which would have allowed earlier moves, or in Simon's case, would have allowed him to stay in the swim where he was catching lump after lump. So, to whoever these people were, who didn't turn up - thanks - you caused quite a few grey hairs amongst the 6 lads on the lake.

Anyway, I was lucky, as I was down the opposite end to where the fish had got smashed the week before. The general consensus of opinion of the lads there the week before, was to pile in the local particles, fish bow-string tight over the high gravel/stone bars, of which there are many in the lake. I didn't agree with that, as it looked like a nightmare, especially in the night (I got wiped out twice in the night anyway), so I decided to fish my usual style - slackish lines, backleaded, trying to ensure the lead would drop, so the fish would naturally come up in the water and over the bar. I bought a bucket of the local particles, and didn't use one grain, deciding to fish boilies only, introducing two/three handfulls of freebies from the boat. A few minor alterations to my normal set-up were made, namely a shockleader of about 30 yards, which was checked and walked out every time a fish was landed/lost, as the stone bars were harsh in places.

Anyway, enough of the chat - what did I have ? Well, in the end, I had 32 fish, and lost 7. I had 7 doubles, 14 x 20s, 10 x 30s and 1 x 40, breaking my British PB nine times in the process. The fishing was so manic that after the third day, and Davvy moving in next to me on the fourth day, I only fished two rods, because I was running out of bait and tackle (hooks and leads). If I'd have had more rigs/tackle etc, and didn't have so much social, I'd have had 50+ fish (any would have), because they had moved up my end, away from where they'd been nailed the week before. I also think the way we fished gave us an advantage, as everyone else seemed to be fishing tight to the lead, which looked completely stupid to me.

Anyway, here goes.............the photos of the 30s/40:


First Fish (Saturday) - 34lbs




5th Fish (Monday) - 34lb 10oz






6th Fish (Monday) - 30lb 4oz







10th Fish (Monday) - 34lb






16th Fish (Wednesday) - 37lb 14oz






17th Fish - (Wednesday) - 36lb






18th Fish (Wednesday) - 44lb






23rd Fish (Thursday) - 36lb 3oz






26th Fish (Friday) - 30lb






29th Fish - (Friday) - 33lb 15oz





30th fish - (Friday) - 38lb 6oz

Ahhhhh, Mr Walters !!!!

Sorry, mate. I didn't mean to be "catty", or "get my claws out", but we have to be puuuuurrrrrrrrrrrrrfectly accurate, when it comes to the details of such things.

I look forward to seeing you on Saturday, when we can discuss miaaahow we're going to get amongst the pike later this year. I've been to Makro today, and seeing as you like a biscuit with your tea, I've gone and bought a load of Kit (e) Kats for us !!!

Cheers

LoL. The level of inuendo on here is 'puss-itively 'cat-astrophic'!! seriously though, Id like to see the picture of that Cat and any other '13' caught fish from both the UK and abroad. If anyones got any that they can email to me and dont mind me using on flyers etc then I'd be more than grateful. Just send them to my hotmail address m.wilkescarpaddict@hotmail.com
