One for the ladies!

Chris Miller took his daughter Chiana to Gingerbread Lake for her first weekend session after the lake’s carp and she passed with flying colours by catching a new personal best 18lb 8oz common carp. She used a 6’ stalking rod with 10lb b.s. line and a chod rig baited with a tutti fruiti pop-up. Chris also enjoyed success catching two mirror carp weighing 18lb 4oz and 22lb 4oz along with four bream to 6lbs. Craig Brooks caught a 35lb 6oz personal best mirror carp when he cast a single pop-up to a showing fish. Dean Flattley experienced both the agony and the ecstasy on a recent visit hooking into three fish but only managing to land one of them. His fish turned out to be a mirror carp named as ‘The Big Lin’ weighing an impressive 37lb 4oz. Denham Baits’ boilies proved to be the successful bait. On another session, he had a five-fish haul including a 33lb mirror known as ‘Barbs’. All his fish fell to Denham Baits’ ‘The Element’ boilies.

Roy Keeble fished overnight at another of BHAA’s carp venues, Swan lake, where he caught a 29lb 14oz mirror carp during the night.
