I Have been coming to The lakes now on and off for 15 years in search of one of Johns elusive Big Cats, And although I've hooked them plenty of times I've never been fortunate enough to get one on the bank. As my job can be very demanding at times and even though I work within the fishing industry, Fishing time for myself can be extremely rare. So with work that little bit laxed over the summer holidays and a change in weather both with rising temperatures and changing pressures, I jumped at the chance for a 2 nighter over at Lydon lakes.
On Arrival I was greeted by the normal sight of digger sat by johns house without a care in the world. It was like id never been away!
With Cats on my mind the bottom lake was the only option for me and luckily enough to my surprise the big (what i call) "Jetty swim was available". It was a no brainer as it had always been a very productive swim for me as a kid and to be fair, with the lake not being that busy, You could cast to all the decent areas with ease.
I decided against using bollies as hook baits as I wasn't really concentrating on other species other then the cats so a 2 inch by 2 inch piece of luncheon was mounted on to my rigs tied with Nash missing link and Nash fang twisters with the compliment of a messy bag filled with crushed Nash mach 1's, Cubes of luncheon meet and small halibut pellets.
It wasn't long before my left hand rod ripped off and landed the first cat of the day around 4 lbs, Not the biggest but a start. The first night drew in and not much had happened apart from a good roach, and a bream.( Crazy considering the size of hook bait).
The following day just seemed to get hotter but still managed to pick the odd carp up and little cat but no monsters.
As the end of day 2 was coming to the end and with john looming in the background cutting the grass my right hand rod screamed off and as soon as the rod was in hand i new it was one of the larger residents within the lake.
After a 15 min battle and runs surging down the lake john helped slide the net under a large looking cat.
It had been the beast I was after at 23.1lbs and was over the moon with it.
In total I had 16 catfish from 4 to 23.1lbs, 5 carp to 15lbs, 1 Roach and 1 Bream and thoroughly enjoyed it.
John massive thanks and see you soon
All the best
