Autumn gold!

Two members managed to catch the same fix during the week whilst fishing at Gingerbread Lake and that fish was no other than one of the lake’s sought after carp, the mirror carp known as ‘The Lookalike’ currently weighing 36lbs. Mark Hodgson caught the fish using boilies fished on the bottom but Paul Baker tempted the same fish with a surface-fished bait. Kieran Roberts caught two big carp too with both of his fish weighing around 29lbs. Kevin Bacon caught another carp around 18lbs on his latest visit

Paul Swift caught one of Swan Lake’s biggest residents, a 28lb common carp and Callum Sharp had a triple hit with carp weighing 27lbs, 19lbs and 17lbs.

Many anglers were reporting that the recent weather conditions were still playing havoc with sport resulting in little or nothing in the way of bites.

Members reported fishing tackle being left unattended in swims. Apart from being contrary to club rules, the owner risks the theft of his tackle for which the club will accept no responsibility.
