Weekly catch report of Badger’s Holt & Lac Serreire - week 19 - 26 July
Submitted by Bas van Klaveren on 28-07-2014
"Lac Serreire was fished by Geert Verbiest and his team from Belgium (Genkies on tour!). 21 carp were landed and a few lost. Best fish was a lovely 20.5kg (45lb 2oz) mirror landed by Sam from the Middle Swim on the left bank. The weather was mainly very hot with a couple of thunder storms. The fishing was tricky due to high water temperatures and a lot of natural food available to the fish at the moment. Top swims were the Shallows and the Middle with a lot of fish holding up tight to the far bank opposite the Shallows Swim. Thanks again for the Belgium beer and see you again!!
Badgers Holt proved a real challenge this week with one fish hooked on a zig rig and unfortunately lost and no other runs. The fish were active and showing a lot but proved very hard to temp despite many different rigs and baits being tried by the guys fishing. The very hot weather was probably the main reason."
