New member Hazel Lee got off to a cracking start when she fished at McGregor Lake by catching a 20lb 4oz mirror carp. Anthony Pogmore opted for a day’s fishing on the lake too using two 15ml boilies as hook bait and a wide scattering of freebies. His decision was soon justified when he banked an 11lb 8oz fully scaled mirror carp and soon after a 19lb 4oz mirror carp. Later in the day he added another 11lb 8oz mirror carp to his total. Dave Albon returned to the lake intent on trying to reconnect with a powerful fish that he had played for twenty minutes only to lose it on a snag. It was not to be on this occasion, but he was well satisfied to catch three mirror carp weighing 13lbs, 15lbs and 15lb 1oz fishing close to some overhanging branches.
Another new member fished at Swan Lake where he caught a 25lb plus common carp on his first visit which was no mean feat on this difficult water. Another member opted to fish from a little used swim and he too was rewarded with the capture of a 23lb common carp.
Day members are reminded to adhere to the fishing times set out in the club books and restated on the entrance gate as bailiffs have encountered several members who have blatantly ignored them. This breach of rules will cost them their memberships if they persist.
