Big eels to be caught at Swan Lake

Lou Gilhart has caught two good-sized eels around the 3lb mark on his last two visits to Swan Lake. Both fish fell to a seafood bait he bought from his local supermarket. George Horne regularly fishes for them and reckons there are plenty to be caught. His best specimen from the lake weighed 5lb 4oz. Kevin Webb caught a 20lb 4oz mirror carp on his last visit to the lake and said he has yet to catch a carp under 20lbs from this developing big fish water. Some nice quality roach and rudd have been caught from this lake in recent weeks taking a variety of small baits including pellets, sweetcorn and maggots.
