Thought other fellow catfish lovers might like to see the catfish I caught from a recent trip to Lac renard France. The trip was my 3rd time at this fishery which is a French owned venue of approx 16 acres stocked with carp and wells catfish.

I caught this cat during the early hours of the morning 3 days into my weeks fishing. The cat took a hook bait of 2 halibut dumbell boilies and 2 nash squid robin red 20mm boilies, fished over a scattered bed of mixed pellet. The cat was in superd condition and weighed in at 135lbs!!

135lb Catfish

135lb Catfish

I returned to bed one very happy lady!

More cats, carp and kittens followed to make a fantastic weeks fishing. Roll on next year when i will return to this superb venue.

Catch Reports

18 September 2009

Jon Taylor fished Deep Lake at Goose Green on the 18th September, fishing the pole with pellet on the hook, Jon tempted four Chub to 3-0-0, plus Crucians, Tench, Roach & Bream and also lost a good Carp.

12 September 2009

Martin Sutton fished Moor Farm bottom lake on the 12th September and sends the following report;
Arriving at Moor Farm I was pleasantly surprised to see another angler had already arrived, as the past few weeks have been very quiet.  During the morning several more cars came and around 10 anglers were fishing during the time I was there.  The morning was fine but a little breezy and so there was no sign of movement on the surface.  I decided to fish the Bottom Lake on peg 6 and set one rod up with a controller float and floating dog biscuit.  This wasn’t touched and, as it kept drifting back to the bank, I changed it over to a small feeder and fished close in.  The other rod was set up with a Method feeder and a variety of soft paste pellets including bacon grill, halibut and meat flavours. 

The bites came quickly and then there were periods of complete inactivity.  At the end of a 4 hour session I had landed 6 Common carp, largest being 3lb 8ozs, all of which fought hard, as Moor Farm carp do, and a equally hard fighting Tench of 1lb 12ozs.  Another very pleasant way to spend a morning and infinitely preferable to the gardening tasks which I reluctantly had to return home to complete.

6 September 2009

Mark Dibble fished the River Rother at Hardham on 6th September. Despite recent rain leaving a tinge of colour in the water, Mark tried a couple of swims but was unable to catch. He did however get the odd bite in both swims.

4 September 2009

Martin Sutton fished Moor Farm bottom lake on the 4th September and sends the following report;
The day started with a very autumnal feel.  The sky was clear and the wind was quite light, but the temperature was down several degrees on previous morning.  Setting up on the bank I could see several fish moving close to the surface.  I set one rod up with a controller float and the other with a Method feeder.  It was slow to begin with and then the north westerly wind became blustery and as the cloud bubbled up so the temperature was rising and falling.

The top rod arched around and I connected with a lovely Common carp, taken off the surface and weighing in at 4lbs 15ozs.  It went quiet again and then bites came on both rods, so clearly the fish were feeding on the surface and the bottom.  From around 1130 onwards it was a fish every 10 minutes or so.  Unfortunately, I had to stop at 1230 but the end result was 6 Commons and a Tench.  Once again, Moor Farm has shown what it can deliver.

1 September 2009

Mark Dibble fished the River Rother upstream of Hardham on the 1st September. His third outing to the river in a little over a week finally produced a decent fish on his third cast. The 6lb 1oz Bream fell to a legered pellet using a PVA bag of pellets for feed. Despite trying two more swims Mark never had another bite, although again he did spot some good sized Chub & a bigger fish he was unable to identify in the low clear water.

30 August 2009

Vice Chairman, Terry Goodwin, fished Canada Lake at Goose Green on the 30th August, Terry who ledgered bread crust caught six Carp as follows
Common Carp of 2lb.12ozs, 3lb 12ozs, 7lb 8ozs, 3lb 10ozs, 3lb 4ozs and a Mirror Carp of 4lb 4ozs, in Terry's own words "not huge but good fun".

29 August 2009

Mark Dibble returned to the River Rother at Hardham on 29th August to see if he could improve on his last outing there. After trying several swims improve he did with a very colourful Chub of about a pound. Mark also spotted a couple of better Chub plus a good sized Carp & Sea Trout in the clear water.

25 August 2009

Ray Clark was out and about again on the 25th of August, this time electing to fish peg 75 on Deep Lake at Goose Green, once again Ray was fishing with just the top three of his pole with pellet/corn on the hook, his catch comprised Gudgeon, Tench, Crucians, Bream, Roach, Rudd, Skimmers Carp to 1-8-0 and three Chub, the best of which topped the scales at 4-0-0.

Catch Reports

18th August 2009

Mike Dibble fished the River Adur below White Bridge on the evening of the 15th August. Using feeder fished banded pellets it was a bite a chuck from the Skimmers & Mike managed about a dozen to nearly 3lb plus a decent Roach. The session would have been even better if two bigger Bream had stayed on the hook & not spooked the shoal. Mike reports that other hook baits were not nearly as effective.

11th August 2009

Steve and Verity Ludlow fished their favourite swim on Deep Pond at Goose Green on the 11th August, fishing the waggler with pellet Steve caught a steady succession of Roach, Rudd, Tench, Skimmers & Gudgeon, Steve reports that at one pointy he was plagued by the Gudgeon and one Gudgeon bite sailed off into the deeper water, and after a bit of a struggle, it turned out to be a small Common Carp of around 2-0-0, shortly after another bite resulted in one of the infamous flying Bream of around 1-8-0.

4th August 2009

Steve and Verity Ludlow made a return visit to Deep Lake at Goose Green on the 4th August, after briefly contemplating trying floating baits for the carp moving on the surface the pair decided to target the many small Tench & Crucians in the lake, fishing the waggler to the marginal lilies, Steve caught Gudgeon, Rudd, Roach, Crucians and Tench on corn and strawberry pellets.  Later in the session with pellet on the hook, Steve hooked into and landed a 1-8-0 Mirror Carp, followed immediately by another that might have been a bit weightier as it managed to break Steve's 2lb10oz hook length. 

3rdAugust 2009

Andrew Eggleden sends the following report re his trips to Goose Green with his two young sons:
 
I have just joined Pulborough A S with a family membership and thought I would let you know of our success. I introduced my 2 sons Jake (11) and Ben (7) to fishing for the first time last month and on our first visit fished Heron without a single bite !
 
The following week we fished Canada with a mixed bag of small fish. The boys were thrilled they actually caught something this time !
 
We have just returned from fishing Deep lake today with a bag containing Gudgeon, Roach, Bream, Tench, Skimmers, Perch, Chub ( 1lb 6) and 2 Common Carp ( 3lb and 5 lb). The boys were absolutely delighted and I now seem to have two new fishing companions to help me get back into the sport I had long forgotten about.

Thanks for helping introduce my sons to fishing by providing such a well maintained fishery at Goose Green.

2nd August 2009

Goose Green was a hive of activity on Sunday 2nd August with anglers to be found on all but two of the venues lakes and ponds, Deep Lake saw Karen Ginnaw fishing peg 75 where she caught a 2 lb Chub and 1-8-0 Bream plus small Tench, Roach, Perch & Gudgeon to short pole and corn/ maggot for a total net of 4-11-0, hubby Barry was to found on adjacent peg 76, where he caught 1 Carp of 1-8-0 on the feeder plus small Carp and bits on the pole and maggot for a net of 5-12-0.
