Thanks Dan

I started fishing Redhouse in June 2012 and all I got on my first session was bites from the mozzies, 5 sessions later I managed to bank the 24 mirror....smashing my uk PB by 4lb :-) but I knew that redhouse could produce bigger fish. 2 sessions prior to the capture I had the fortune of photographing a fellow angler with 30lb just over common (stunning fish but now dead :-(...) it was his capture that focused my attention to that part of the lake after they had spawned.

12 sessions in and I started on what I thought was just a 1 nighter, but seeing a fish roll over my bait caused me to stay a second night even though I had got to travel up to Glasgow the next morning (Friday) but knew bite time was around 10am. 09:45 the middle rod roared off and the target common was in the net :-), I couldn't believe it to be honest although I was expecting a take!!

Did a couple more sessions after that in 2012 but didn't produce anything, wanted to carry on fishing through the winter but family and work didn't allow unfortunately.

I really wanted to hit the lake hard in 2013 but again family and work have not really been in my favour to allow it although I have managed to get a dozen or so mini sessions and 1 nighters in. I have managed 6 fish this year, 20lb 10oz common, 19lb 10oz half Lin, 15lb two tone and three stockies....:-)

So in all I've fished it lightly really for 18 months, caught 8 fish including my target fish. All in all I'm very happy with my results but feel I could have got more sessions and results if I really pulled out all the stops to be by the lake :-)

Yeah the lake holds some cracking fish mate and I must admit I do really like the lake. I wouldn't say that I have give up on it but since the publicity with the ccmoore blog the lake has seen become a lot more popular this year which isn't a bad thing for the club in all fairness :-)

I have been fishing other waters this year, clumber park, Drayton res and also a week in France. I'm hoping to get on Pride Lake and Olvers lake when the ticket renewals come through in June :-), but if not then I will continue to fish redhouse and other waters too. I know for sure there are still some fish in redhouse that I want to capture :-)
