Its not always an ill wind!

Nick ‘the Greek’ Page ventured out on the day that the remnants of hurricane Gonzalo were bringing near gale force winds to the area. He went with a friend to Swan Lake and opted to fish into the teeth of the wind while his mate opted to fish the lee side of the lake. His decision to tough it out was vindicated when he went on to catch two 30lb plus mirrors during the day.

Kevin Bacon has been enjoying a great first season at Gingerbread Lake and he continued his run by catching a 31lb mirror carp on his latest visit as well as a small fully-scaled mirror and a 14lb common. Incidentally, the carp he caught the previous week was not 17lb 8oz as reported but 29lbs! He fished together with a friend, Ian Edgar, on his latest visit and Ian got in the action too by catching a pristine 28lb common carp. Recently, bailiff Derek Orchard caught the sought after cut-tail common carp weighing 29lbs, the second time he has banked the fish this year. John Murphy has continued to fish day sessions at the lake and was rewarded by the capture of a late season tench weighing 8lb 2oz.
