Another milestone is reached at Swan Lake

The few anglers that have continued to fish at Swan Lake have been catching some great fish. Pete Housden landed three carp after fishing overnight, mirrors weighing 18lb, 14lb and 31lb 4oz. Luke Garner has caught the first common carp to weigh over 30lbs from the lake, a 30lb 2oz lump. It appears the carp are not yet fully spawned out so are carrying extra pounds at the moment.

Kevin Gormley has continued his hot run at Gingerbread Lake by catching a 33lb 8oz mirror, a little known fish. Kevin has only been fishing short overnight spells avoiding most of the foul weather that persisted for much of the week.

Fisheries officer, Martin Crouch, has been fishing at McGregor Lake where he has enjoyed some great sport from small carp and the odd bream. Martin has been pole-fishing using dead red maggots as bait.

Board members have been working hard over the weekend to create a number of permanent swims at Grace Lake in readiness for the start of the new season. Members will be able to park their vehicles alongside the lake on the concrete road that borders it.
It has been disappointing that so few club members have offered any assistance when many of them have expressed an interest in fishing this new water.
