The water is starting to warm and the fish are feeding, it’s a perfect time to get the rods out and enjoy the sunshine! Centre Lake is heaving with activity, the cats are moving about but playing hard to get by getting hooked but proving difficult to bring them to the bank! A few beautiful carp have appeared in the range of 10lbs to 25lbs in the last week too! The pike are keeping their appetite fulfilled and growing to a good healthy size, getting ready for their season in October!
