As the title says it’s been another hot week here at Eden’s with temperatures reaching 40+ degrees some days and the evenings staying between 26-30 degrees, with little or no breeze some days.
We were lucky that it was a quiet week for us with just 4 great guys on Simon’s Lake, Daan, Sam, Antony and Dave. What a great group of guys and we all had a great laugh together with plenty of banter which was really good to see between the group as at times the fishing was very hard and slow but was a few good fish being caught for a couple of the guys. I spent a few days/evenings also down on the lakes with them for a bit of support and trying to tweak a few things for them and try things a little bit different but in all fairness they were not doing much wrong but was worth a try, and again the lads tried and stuck to plans and eventually all of them during the week all broke their p/bests some smashing them several times especially Dann with a 38.04lb,then 39.01lb and a 42.02lb mirrors as well as other carp, Antony had a 39.00lb mirror, Sam had the 39.00lb Grassie and Dave had a 35.10lb mirror.
We also had a few afternoons having a stalk on Jolly Pads Lake as there is some big grass carp in there and a few of the lads wanted to see if they could catch one, and on the very first day of trying Sam had a 39.00lb one out, and Dann had Merv the sturgeon at 27.08lb, but it was fun having a break out of the sun sitting in the shade fishing with one rod to see what they would catch and all the lads had a go and all caught a few fish this way. Great bunch of guys miss them already look forward in catching up with them again in the future.
