Fantastic Week

Barry Plummer and Simon Watson: Fantastic Week

By Barry Plummer and Simon Watson on 19 October 2019

Once again a fantastic week at Oakview Lake. After many visits, the standards are as good as the first time we came here 10 years ago. Best week's fishing we have had here and looking forward to returning again next year.

Fishing Tactics: Used bait boat from the home swims. Hook baits - DNA S7 boilies presented as snowman worked best and 2 tone pop ups also worked well. Catching spots - We left a detailed map in the lodge showing the exact locations, including a recently established feature that turned out to be the hot spot of the week.

Catch: 26 carp - 5 x 40s, 10 x 30s, 9 x 20s and 2 x teens (including a grass carp).
