Carl at Denhall fisheries contacted me last weekend to let me know the new lake would be opening this week
I made arrangements to fish a midweek overnighter and had a great start to the season on there.
The new lake, although with immature planting at the moment, has more underwater features than u could ever imagine.
With my first few pulls through with the marker rod it revealed deep gullys, sloping bars and some nice deep trenches. finding various areas with gravelly spots i knew i had far too many features to think about !
Opting for a mid range rod on the edge of a deep bowl and a far rod tucked up to the island i tried to cover some potential areas.
BY the evening id been getting a lot of line bites so i slackened the lines off and topped up the baiting spots.
Shortly after midnight and a good scrap, i banked a 14lb mirror, with just a few mat shots back it went. Account open
At around lunchtime i was wrapping the kit away and having my last coffee when the left hand rod melted away. With the fish taking line i slowed it up and turned it back to my swim and after a short tussle into the waiting net.
At 26lb 8 oz to say i was overjoyed was an understatement. A lovely way to start a new venue.
Both fish were caught on SAE Crab and Oyster tipped with a plastic hi viz bait stop fished over beds of chopped boilies
The lake has common sense rules and these can be checked on the info boards as you arrive.
It can be booked for days sessions and nights by ringing
