News Update: 22nd October 2023

At the start of the week, Glenn Mills was pleased to catch a 29lb mirror carp whilst fishing at Gingerbread Lake. He returned later in the week to catch a 17lb mirror carp and a second fish, a super 40lb 3oz mirror carp nicknamed ‘White Lips’. Graeme Gadsby fished a 24-hour session at the lake amassing a bumper haul of fish made up of three carp (two commons and one mirror), 10 bream and a lone tench. Graeme’s largest carp was a common weighing 31lb 4oz.

Sport at Swan Lake has been slow for much of the week after a ground frost followed by high pressure and then heavy rain. Steve Curtin chose the wettest day as he is convinced it is in conditions like that big fish often feed. He was proved right catching three mirror carp during a short-day session weighing 30lb 12oz, 24lb 4oz and 29lb 8oz.
