Baz Griffiths VISITED THE LAKE SEPTEMBER 2012

September was our fifth visit to the lake and for me personally was the best result with 8 fish caught. 2 fifties, both of them pb mirrors at 58lbs and 55.12. 4 forties to 49. and 2 thirties. Mick Hall was in charge for our week and as ever was more than helpful. Many thanks again mate. Cannot see us fishing anwhere else. Think I will hibermate until May when once agin we will pit our wits against the superb Island Lake carp. All the best to both Micks for Xmas and the New Year.

JOHN GREENFIELD – VISITED THE LAKE W/C 19th May 2012

This was the Brummy Crew’s fourth visit to the Island Lake and to be honest our expectations were to put just one fish each on the bank due to the weather conditions. We saw a 12 degree temperature change in just one day and rain, well it was bouncing two feet off the ground so not the best of conditions. Everyone got their string pulled but some got away – but that’s fishing! But wow, did we do well, not with the numbers but the fish we caught were stunning including five 50lb fish, two of which were only just short of 60lb and Chris had one of the big ones at 67lb, a truly superb fish in every way. We have fished a lot in France over the years and sampled some great venues but this has to be one of the top waters available. The bailiffs on site (Mick H and Mick B) are two of the best I have encountered. Their advice, patience and knowledge is excellent and they always take the time to make your stay the very best. Guys – another PB for me, I can’t tell you how much I appreciate your advice and help. Thanks again for a brilliant week.

MICK MURRAY VISITED THE LAKE W/C 5th May 2012

Just got back from a trip to Island lake! What a place , excellent facilities , super balliffs , great weighing equipment , I especially liked the Cotswold matts as I’m used to Carp damaging Carp cradles! We had a relaxing week with the legend Mick Bowman , a nice man and a great angler . Don’t know about your Rattlers but I will investigate as soon as I can get my hands on one. We also managed to catch some nice fish , 17 in Total with 4×60 . Three coming to my rods on three consecutive nights , I thought I was dreaming so I pinched myself so hard I’ve left a bruise. What will this lake be like in two or three years time! Give some more I’m addicted. Thanks Mick for the BBQ.
