Mick Usher completed his third session at Gingerbread Lake adding another two carp to his tally, a 14lb 6oz common and a 27lb 9oz mirror. Also, he landed three tench all weighing over 5lbs including an impressive 8lb 8oz specimen.
The carp at Swan Lake have been generally hard to catch but what ones were caught were all over 20lbs. Membership Secretary Anthony Pogmore fished a snowman rig over a bed of Denham Baits’ Kranberry and The Element boilies and had a single run at 12.30pm which resulted him landing a new PB from the lake, an immaculate 29lb 12oz mirror.
Richard Bartlett has found a swim at McGregor Lake from which he seems to catch every time he fishes it. In a short evening session, he caught a 16lb mirror and the following evening two 8-10lb common carp. His successful baits were Sticky Baits’ boilies.
Another member had similar success the previous weekend catching carp weighing 20lb 10oz and 25lbs. Kevin Webb fished at Gingerbread Lake where he caught 6 good-sized bream during a hectic morning session.
Alan Grimsey fished into the teeth of a cold wind when most other anglers were seeking shelter on the lee side of Gingerbread Lake. He caught a 17lb carp and had only just returned it when his second rod registered a take. This time it turned out to be from a 35lb mirror carp which Alan was busy photographing when his third rod was away.
