Carp have continued to be caught from the Sandy lakes in the last few weeks.

David Grant caught the two tone common from Swan Lake at 34.02, while Mick Broom had a 30.04 carp from the same lake during the week. Another angler who wanted to fish Swan Lake was Paul Burton, but finding the lake busy moved to McGregor Lake and ended the session with 10 carp, the largest being a new pb of 24.10. Another anger to catch a 20lber from McGregor Lake was Karl Franklin, who had a 22.12 Mirror Carp

Chub, Eels and a Barbel

August 27th, 2018 • By: Alan Davies News

Reports of fish being caught have been few and far between during August. Aaron Prior after an overnight session at McGregor Lake, went and fished the back meadows in Biggleswade and reported catching three chub upto 5.06 and a barbel of 10.05.

Steve Hill took his daughter Star to McGregor Lake, where she caught her first carp a 9lb Common. Steve also reported that he has caught several Eels from the lake, the largest just under 5lb.

Once again the club is having to report that there have been several instances where rules have not been followed. The first involves discarded tackle, with one member reporting that several times at McGregor Lake he has picked up yards of line discarded in swims, unfortunately on one occassion a hook with a boilie left attached was discarded which was picked up by his dog, resulting it it swallowing the hook, this required a visit to the vets to have surgery for the hook to be removed.

The club has also received yet another report of human waste being left in a swim om McGregor Lake, which had been covered up with some weed. This disgusting behaviour will not be tolerated and once again the club reminds everyone to read the rules and make sure that they have the necessary equipment with them. Any member found breaking the rules and leaving human waste on the fisheries will be banned for life.

Still a Few Being Caught

With the hot weather continuing, fish have often been reluctant to feed, but some anglers have been reporting some success.
Paul Prior and his 16 yr old son Aaron spent the night fishing at McGregors and caught 9 carp the biggest being 18.9 and the smallest 10.8 and also had 6 bream weighing from 4.2 to 6.7 all caught between the hours of 8.30pm and 4.30am.

Another angler doing at session at McGregor was Karl Franklin who despite losing several carp, banked eight carp during a day session up to 15lbs, while not catching as many Anthony Pogmore caught a 14lb Mirror and a 12.04 Common.

Alan Wilkie reported catching a 31.04 Mirror Carp during the day from Swan Lake.

Once again the club has to report that some members are still not following club rules, David Grant and Mick Broom (our bailiffs) have reported finding human excrement together with toilet paper behind the Birches swim on two occasions recently. A warning that, if the culprit(s) can be identified, they will be permanently expelled from the club. READ THE RULES and remember your bucket.
