Sport at Swan Lake appears to have markedly slowed down no doubt attributable to carp getting ready to spawn. Bob Kitchener fished overnight catching a 13lb common but overall bites were hard to come by.
Anglers fishing at Gingerbread Lake have continued to produce some good results during the week with Kevin Barrable being the latest member to catch the Lookalike mirror weighing over 40lbs. Steve Curtin fished a single night catching three low double-figured mirrors plus several tench and bream. Another member banked, at least, two 20Lb plus carp fishing overnight too. Nick Baldwin had struggled to catch any of the lake’s big tench so decided on a change of tack so opted for some lure fishing. He caught a number of small jacks but then connected with a cracking 18lb 6oz pike.
Laurie Graham fished overnight at McGregor Lake where he caught a chunky mirror carp weighing 17lbs. The fish fed in the late evening and made his trip worhwhile.
Swan Lake has been fishing exceptionally well during the daytime too with several big fish being caught. Callum Sharp caught a 19lb common and Chris Hopkins landed a 25lb mirror. Richard Fosker caught a heavily scaled 24lb 8oz mirror in bright sunshine as well.
Members fishing at Swan Lake have found the lake’s big carp to be more active during the daytime with Evan John catching mirrors weighing 34lbs, 30lbs and 28lbs on recent visits.
