Carp at Swan Lake still Mad for it!!

A three-night session at Swan Lake started slowly for David Grant with no action in the first night. However, the next morning action began with him landing a 31lb 12oz common carp. He went on to catch two more carp during his stay, both mirrors weighing 23lb 12oz and 21lb 4oz. All his fish fell […]

What a difference a week makes!

Robert Livock fished a day session at McGregor Lake but had to wait until late afternoon before getting any action. A positive run produced a muscular 12lb 8oz mirror for him. Incidentally, his capture from the lake the previous week was a 19lb 12oz mirror and not a 129lb mirror!

First frosts do little to affect sport

Antony Collins reported catching an 8lb 2oz common carp from the River Ivel, a relative rarity in recent years. Previously, he had caught a 5lb fully-scaled mirror carp fishing at McGregor Lake and another larger mirror carp.

Mick breaks the 10lb barrier again!

John Murphy. Decided to fish in the Links Pool after he found his preferred swims occupied on Gingerbread Lake. John found that he had to fish tight to the thick lily beds in order to get bites and, as a consequence he lost two good fish that made a dash for cover when hooked. However, he was pleased to land a 10lb 3oz bream, one of the biggest reported from this venue, plus a stockie mirror carp.

Matt is over the moon!

Mistral Baits’ manager Matt Parry time off work for a session at Gingerbread Lake and opted for the little-fished ‘Fridge’ swim in the factory bay. An overnight session produced a tench, bream and a mid-double carp all caught on Mistral LiveR boilies. Matt returned two days later and had a catch that really put the icing on the cake for his holiday as he went on to catch a tench around 6lbs, three more bream to double-figures and the magnificent and elusive mirror carp called ‘Moon scale’ at 38lb 8oz.
