High Temperatures Slow Fishing

July 9th, 2018 • By: Alan Davies News

Catch reports have been thin on the ground in the last few weeks, probably due the high temperatures and world cup fever!!

Chris Tribe had a go at McGregor Lake and had two miror carp off the surface, the largest 17lb.

Julian Peacock continued with his short sessions on Swan Lake and reported catching two carp, a 28lb and 32lb Mirror

The club is giving advanced warning that Gingerbread Lake will be closed over the August Bank Holiday weekend to allow for maintenance work on Swims and the track. Anglers wishing to help on BOTH days (Saturday and Sunday) will be able to fish the night. Anyone fishing the Saturday night will be expected to work on the Sunday, unlike previously where some anglers have gone home.

The recent warmer weather has seen the carp on the feed at the Sandy Lake complex.

On a recent visit to Swan Lake, Del Orchard had a 32.06 mirror carp during the day.

McGregor Lake has continued to provide sport from almost anywhere on the lake. Robert Livock caught 3 doubles in one session, the best a 15lb Common, while Anthony Pogmore managed a 16lb Mirror, caught just as he was packing up. Alan Davies and Matt Dockerty have been fishing the lake in short evening sessions for the last couple of weeks, which has seen over 20 carp caught, most of them doubles topped by a 19lb Mirror.

With the deadline for night permit renewals passed, spaces are now being offered to those on the waiting lists.

Plenty Being Caught

Carp have been on the feed across all of the clubs waters. The 40lb 2oz ‘Moonscale’ caught from Gingerbread Lake by Kevin Bacon tops the list of big fish. Also from Gingerbread Lake, Mick Broom had a 29lb 10oz carp, while Mike Usher had Common Carp of 31lb and 17ib.

Swan Lake produced a bream of 11lb to Peter Scoat, while Paul Swift had a Mirror Carp of 30lb 4oz which he named Arfur due to it only having half a tail, obviously as a result of a close encounter with an otter, a reminder of why all the lakes are now fenced and why all members need to ensure that the Gates are kept closed.

On McGregor Lake, Paul Burton caught 7 carp on a recent weekend session, the largest two being 17lb 2oz and 20lb 1oz. Alan Davies has been dropping in for some short sessions and has caught on both his recent visits with 15lb Mirror Carp gracing his net.

The deadline for night permits renewals is this Monday 30th April, after which night permits will be offered to those on the waiting lists.

New season books should be in the shops shortly.
