Big pike bring some winter cheer

Whilst the odd carp is still getting caught, it is pike that have been feeding well at BHAA’s Sandy Lakes complex. Three pike over 20lbs have been reported with the best weighing 28lbs and the other two topping 25lbs. Details of their captors are not yet to hand though.

Yan gets the jackpot twice!

Yanis Spalis has fished at Gingerbread Lake for the past two years but openly admits that it has been a bit of a struggle to get to grips with the lake’s big carp. However, this year Yan had already banked a couple of good-sized carp but was still anxious to catch that elusive 30 pounder.
