Scott’s back

Scott has been fishing elsewhere for a few years but he is back on Howells this season and got off to a flyer on his first session back with this 24lb-ish half linear Mirror as one half of a brace of April twenties:

Scott said “I had this 24 and a 27 on a Saturday over night session – happy days and the bait is working! Glad to be back…”.

By the way there are only 3 Howells night permits left so if you are thinking of renewing your ticket please move fast as these will be sold on a first come first serve basis.

Bankside works at Bog Grove

I am pleased to confirm that the slippery area of bank behind the first two swims at Bog Grove has now been sorted out using road planings:

The lake is fishing really well at the moment and after I took the above pics I landed 4 Commons to 10lb 12oz and this 6lb 7oz Mirror:

Howells Night Permits

All of the spare Howells night permits have now been taken up and the remaining 23 are reserved for existing Howells night permit holders until the 1st April.  Please click here for more info and re-apply as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.

Maricel’s extra special snow carp

Maricel Yumang wrote “Having planned a two night session at Totham Pit I wasn’t relishing the prospect as it was starting to snow, but all thoughts of spending the night in icy -2 temperatures were soon forgotten when my rod gave a single beep, my first reaction was to look at the lake for the coot responsible but unusually it was empty, the rod then roared off resulting in a beautiful 26lb 3ozer. I love catching carp anytime of the year but in the snow its just extra special :-)

Happy Maricel with her splendid snow carp from Totham Pit.

Carpin on with Specimen Carp Baits

If you picked up an application form from the Specimen Carp Baits stand at the Five Lakes Carp Show please post it off to the membership secretary as he has promised to turn your application around quickly so you can fish the last month of the 2012/13 season for free.

Off to a flyer

Earl Adams took advantage of our winter offer allowing standard night permit holders to upgrade to a Howells night permit and on his first visit landed one of the lakes largest residents:

“We did our first short night session on Howells last night. Very quiet over night but I had this lump of a mirror (26 lbs 3oz) this morning at 8am. Plus Richard had a small double and a cracking looking common at 16lb.  A great start to our night fishing at Howells and the second 26 we have had in the space of a couple of weeks.  Now I know why I came back to carp fishing after a 15 year break.”
