Andre Oldham fished a 72 hour session at the prolific McGregor Lake where he went on to catch a total of 35 fish haul comprised of 20 bream and 15 mirror carp to mid-doubles.
Mark Horspool continued his onslaught at Gingerbread Lake catching carp of 21lbs and 17lbs plus some bonus tench during his latest overnight session. Other anglers reported bream and tench to be feeding well at night with the former around the double-figure mark. This week, club members have built some new swims in the centre part of the lake facing the channel with car parking available close by.
Anglers fishing at BHAA’s New Road Lake have enjoyed some tremendous catches confirming that the venue has finally come of age as a big fish water. Mark Bailey took his friend Martin Girdwood to fish with him hoping to catch some of the lake’s big bream as well as any carp. However, it was carp that were to dominate action throughout their stay with Mark landing 11 fish up to 26lb 3oz despite losing another four. Martin was well pleased too landing 4 fish to 20lb 9oz and losing another two. Phil Robertson and his son-in-law have enjoyed a dream start on the water and it was Phil’s turn when he caught a 24lb 8oz mirror carp during an overnight stay. The lake record has been broken too with the capture of a 31lb mirror carp but details of the captor are sketchy.
Some of the new members to Biggleswade and Hitchin AA have got to dream starts to the season. Barry Richardson fished an overnight session on New Road Lake where he hooked and landed a truly magnificent looking 27lb fully scaled mirror carp.
