keith and the boys in france.

Post by swimmers_mate on Sun Oct 14, 2012 2:44 pm

Right just to keep everyone upto date with our boys french fun here's the catch report from the first couple of days -

Keith has had 23lb 6oz, 32lb 2oz and a mega 43lb mirror. The chef has had a 34lb 2 oz mirror - his first 30 so big thumbs up to him. Davy has had a 25lb mirror and the others still to get off the mark but it's early days yet.

Please feel free to add any updates if you get them before me :-)

Deaks is off the mark with a 33lb mirror. Feeding spells seem to be early morning so the lads have been resting the swims letting the fish have a free meal before giving them a bashing tomorow :-)

Now been back a week, and it was an excellent trip, although VERY wet (inch and a half of rain one night) and very dark (don't think I'll fish in France later than September - 14 hours of complete darkness is not much fun).

Anyway, we finished up as follows:

Deaks (top rod - top bombing) - 19 fish (2 or 3 x 40s)
Me - 16 fish (3 x 40s)
Dav - 5 fish
Anthony - 5 fish
Chef - 4 fish (1 x 40)
Grant - 1 fish (1x 40)

To be fair, all the fish were pushed up our end and Deaks moved around and slayed them. Here's a selection of photos of the better fish:

First chuck, 20 minutes and jammy twat has a 43lber on the bank.............








Chef's turn, with a PB-busting 34lber...............




Then a further PB-buster of 37lb 14ozs............




Scraper 40 for me............



And another.......



Deaks pulls in a stunning 29lb mirror





Another scraper 40 for me............



Cheffo with his first ever 40...............43lb+



Home for the week.............



Last morning 39lber..............

Another good week at Wintons!

Nice one Guys! Some awesome looking fish and great to see the 40s spread around the group. Take your point about the 14 hours of darkness at this time of year. However as you know Russ and I are just under two weeks away from subjecting ourselves to something similar with another trip to 3 Iles. Hopefully we'll come back with our sanity intact!
