News Update: 17th July 2022

At Gingerbread Lake, Ionut Cires has continued his pursuit of the lake’s carp by putting in visits either before or after work. This week, he was rewarded by the capture of two big mirror carp, the heaviest weighing 36lb 4oz. However, one of the best fish reported recently was a perfectly proportioned tench caught accidently by Tom Lacey. The fish looked to be around the 10lb mark if not heavier.

Carp at Swan Lake have only shown signs of activity for very brief periods during the week. Anthony Pogmore managed to hook a sizable fish as he was winding in that turned out to be a pike around 11lbs that has gained a reputation as developing a penchant for boilies. It is the second time he has caught the unwelcome creature as well as being bitten off by it on previous occasions!

Alan Wilkie has found afternoons and evenings to be a good time for picking up the odd fish and this proved to be the case again when he visited McGregor Lake. A single run resulted in him catcing a 17lb 15oz mirror.
