Big catches of carp from Gingerbread and McGregor Lakes

Kevin Barrable continued to catch more carp during his recent session at Gingerbread Lake ending up with no fewer than nine carp with two of them topping 30lbs. The majority of the remainder of his catch were mid to upper 20s. All Kevin’s fish fell to floating dog biscuits. Ian Fisher was another angler on a hot streak adding four more 20lb plus carp to his tally. Ian’s fish included a mirror carp weighing 24lbs, two 24lb commons and a spawned out common weighing 37lb 4oz. Ian used whittled down Denham Baits’ pop-ups fished floater style to temp his fish.

Conor Yonug and Kyle Verlander fished overnight at McGregor Lake where they caught no fewer than 12 carp between them with the best fish weighing around 15lbs. On three occasions, they had simultaneous takes ending up playing two fish at the same time.

Reports of catches made at Swan Lake showed that most fish were being caught after dark probably due to the clarity of the water
