After catching several carp and tench from Gingerbread Lake during the milder weather, David Young was still keen to catch one more good fish before the wintry weather arrives. He fished overnight at the lake and was rewarded by catching a 25lb 2oz mirror carp.
Alan Davies had enjoyed catching carp throughout the summer months fishing at McGregor Lake but decided the time was right to start fishing the Association’s river stretches. His first trip to a stretch of the River Ivel proved to be fruitful with him catching two chub, the best weighing 3lbs 10oz. Chub study group member Karl Franklin decided to try his luck on the Ivel too and he was pleased to net a 4lb 6oz chub despite seeing otters swimming up and down the river.
