Hot weather playing havoc with daytime sport

Mick Day returned for another day at McGregor Lake where he again opted to fish a swim often passed over by fellow anglers. Casting along the margins either side of his swim brought him more success in the form of two nice mirror carp weighing 16lb 4oz and 12lb 8oz plus a good-sized bream. Barry Arnold almost mimicked his catch when he caught another 16lb 4oz mirror and an 11 pounder too. Roy Keeble has had a break from carp fishing in the daytime to target other species in the lake. Waggler fishing with sweetcorn as bait produced a steady stream of beautifully conditioned roach and bream for him throughout the day plus a bonus 8lb 10oz mirror carp for good measure.

Ladies rule at first Open Day!

The first of two Open Days was held at McGregor Lake and once again all who attended caught plenty of fish. The event was sponsored by Walker’s Pitch and the highlight of the day was four ladies fishing in adjacent swims all thoroughly enjoying both the fishing and the glorious weather. There were hot and cold drinks available throughout the day as well and crisps and other snacks too. The Environment Agency provided an aquarium so that the fish caught could be studied until the end of the day when they were all safely returned to the lake.
