For the second week of the season we welcomed Moulinots regular Paul White and his group from Sussex, another Moulinots regular Anthony Briggs from Holland and a new group of 3 anglers from the West Midlands, headed by Spencer Powell and his wife Yvonne. The weather was still very cold but things look promising on the Saturday afternoon when Mark Camp (Sussex) landed a lovely 39.14 Mirror at 4pm. Sadly there were no other fish out until the tuesday morning at 6am when Anthony Briggs (Holland) landed the cut-tail Common at 55.14, a new PB for Anthony. A great result as it was from a swim that Anthony had longed to fish for many years. Fishing stayed slow until the wednesday evening, when Spencer Powell (W Mids) landed a Mirror at 28.01, followed shortly after by a stunning looking Mirror at 26.06. Things really kicked off on the thursday morning when Paul White (Sussex) landed a new PB Mirror at 52.00lb. Anthony then had a 23lb Mirror and Spencer has two more fish at 25.07 and 27.06 respectively. Not to be outdone by Paul’s early morning capture, Jim Tozer (Sussex) caught a PB Mirror at 37.04 after a move into the Lodge swim. He then followed this with a 34.09 Mirror a few hours later.

Fishing continued to go well into the friday morning when Gary Enwood (Sussex) landed two Commons at 30lb and 27.08. Mark Camp (Sussex) then had a 26lb Common. This was followed by an amazing 15 minutes in Paul White’s swim, when he had 3 fish on at the same time!! He managed to land two of them, a 36lb Mirror and a 29lb Mirror. Perhaps next time Paul you will manage to land all 3!!! James (Tigger) Tozer (Sussex) then landed his only fish of the week, a 29.01 Common. Alas, this was not on his rods but Anthony’s. Lets hope you have a better result next time Bud, as it wasn’t for the want of trying!!

Mark Camp then had another Mirror at 23.03, Paul White had his 4th fish of the week, a 26.04 Mirror, and then Phil Squire (W Mids) pulled out his only fish of the week, a 38.03 PB Common. Spencer (after his 3rd move of the week!) had his biggest fish of the week late on the friday evening, a well deserved 37.05 Mirror. Well done Spencer, top rod on your first visit to Moulinots. Hope you enjoyed the Easter Egg!!

All in all another hard week due the weather being below freezing on occasions, but a great effort by all the lads on the lake. Total weight for the week was 652.01lb, Total fish was 20 – 11 x 20’s, 7 x 30’s and 2 x 50’s. Average weight for the week was 32.06lb.
