Weekly catch report of Badger’s Holt & Lac Serreire - 22 - 29 November 2014
Submitted by Bas van Klaveren on 09-12-2014
The last week of the season, and Simon ended it in style by fishing a week himself
Lac Serreire - Due to having nobody on last week I decided to have a week's fishing for the first time since we bought the complex. It was a great week with 49 carp landed including 11 forties to 46lb (21kg) showing that November is an excellent month. All the fish were caught from the Outflow swim. Two spots produced all the takes; the dying pads in the outflow corner and a very long range spot at about 170yds towards the inlet stream where fish have been showing over for the last few weeks. Once again Trigga boilies proved to be highly effective. Hook baits were straight forward bottom baits fished on 5" hook lengths and 2oz leads.
Badgers Holt - Moritz & Phil from Germany had a lovely 53lb 14oz (24.5kg) mirror from the right hand side of the main swim on a Trigga boilie. A photo will follow as soon as we receive it.
I had a friend visiting this week and we decided to fish a couple of nights on Badgers Holt. It was a good two nights with mirrors of 53lb 4oz (24.2kg), 50lb (22.7kg) and 32lb (14.5kg) along with a 17lb (7.7kg) koi all caught in bitterly cold conditions. We are now closed for the winter period and both lakes will be rested. We have a very full schedule of winter maintenance including completely re-building, re-wiring and re-plumbing the two lodges on Lac Serreire, refurbishing the Badgers Holt cabin, re-building swims, removal of roach, chalking of Lac Serreire, etc. We will post updates showing our progress throughout the winter.
