Denham Baits Bonanza

Paul Rudd, proprietor of Denham Baits, confirmed some of the big fish catches made on his baits from Gingerbread Lake during the winter and early spring months and sent photographs of those fish. In one unprecedented session, Paul caught a 37lb 8oz linear mirror and the mirror known as Moonscale weighing 44lb 10oz together with a 36lb 4oz mirror, a 33lb common and a 20lb mirror. All the fish fell to a combination of The Element and Element L boilies. Steve Potter landed another of Gingerbread’s 40s, a mirror carp known as The Brown Fish weighing 40lb 4oz whilst Paul netted a 34.14 mirror both on The Element boilies. Ryan Smith caught a 37lb 12oz mirror carp using another of Denham Baits’s boilies known as Red Enzyme. Finally, Richard Holden’s capture of the mirror carp known as The Lookalike weighing 40lb 7oz also fell to The Element.

More recently, a member reported catching no fewer than five carp in a session all falling to Element L boilies. Nick ‘the Greek’ Page turned up for a daytime session and margin fished catching three cracking carp, a 33lb mirror and two other 20lb+ carp. John Murphy got off the mark this year by catching 2 big bream both well over 9lbs.

An otter fence has been installed around Swan Lake in under a week by Otter Stop Ltd which should protect the stock of big carp that inhabit this water. Richard Fosker reported catching a 26lb 10oz mirror carp during the week from the lake.
