hi all
i was at a committee meeting of my local club last night at the clubhouse on the local golfclub & found out that the lake which was built there about 2 years ago had been stocked & is going to open
on 1st May there is also the possbility of yours trully being a bailiff to run along side my current pos of head bailiff of tydd gote a.c. as the golf club is allready used as t.g.a,c. HQ and also is on opposite side of road to our river.
when this is confirmed then it will be another reason for some of you lot to come down.
when i find out the stock that has been put in ill post it up.

tight lines.

Martin - interesting mix. Sounds a fairly dense stocking too.

Any idea where they got the numbers and proportions for this? In the US, our Game & Fish Department (similar to the EA) will evaluate a water and make recommendations for us.

Also, any idea why no preds (unless the "kio" things are - that is a species I've never heard of - Koi and a typo maybe)?

ill have plenty of spare rigs so dont worry
Newt
there all small stock & when theve grown on in a few years
some of the larger ones will willbe sold & the money put back into more stock & other improvments.IT has been recomended that for an exelent comercial fishery to stock 1 ton per acre.
The chub are preds .

Ah so - forgot you could sell the larger fish for a nice price. Not really possible over here except for exotics for a tank.

And filled in another blank spot in my knowledge - chub is a pred. Got it. Are they very good at it?

If you could get EA permission, a few flathead catfish would make a nice addition to a pred-shy lake though. Only problem is, a biggun will cruise the shallows at night and slurp up 5lb to 10lb carp for a snack. But man - they are some fun to catch.

Your weather is way too cold for aligator gar which is a shame since they can go to near 300lbs and have a nasty disposition - especially when hooked (well, "hooked" is a misnomer since the best rigs for them don't include hooks - mouth is way too tough).

Newt,
Chub are predators and will occassionally take small live or deadbaits, but are much more commomly fished for with bread , maggots etc.,
They are also famous for loving wasp grubs, slugs and cheese paste.
They like carp, will take practically anything!
