News Update: 15th October 2023

After being unable to fish for several months, Robert Livock was finally able to enjoy a day’s fishing at McGregor Lake. Two runs out of the blue on an otherwise lifeless day were welcomed as he went on to land two nice mirror carp weighing 14lb 8oz and 17lb 12oz.

A member fishing at Swan Lake caught a big late season tench weighing 8lbs during a day visit using fake corn. Mark Jefferys could not repeat the success he experienced on his previous visit when he caught seven of the lake’s carp but still managed to catch an 18lb 15oz mirror carp on an overnight session. Steve Curtin turned up in heavy rain but when it finally stopped fish started to show around the lake. In the early evening, he had a run and connected with a 31lb 4oz mirror carp and later as he was about to pack up a smaller 18lb 4oz mirror. Steve returned the next day for another day session catching an even bigger fish, a 36lb common carp to give him his second 30 of the week.
