Neil bags another big eel

Club chairman Neil Sampson decided to try for the big tench that inhabit Gingerbread Lake and opted for a swim in two-bar bay. Neil could not tempt any tench to feed but still ended the day with a bumper catch. His first fish was a huge 4lb 13oz eel which was his second largest specimen from the lake. Later, a move of swim to the 20/20 swim produced 4 bream to 9lbs and a smaller eel for him. The hot and humid weather resulted in many of the lake’s big carp being seen cruising the surface giving a mouth-watering display to the anglers there. A number of 20lb plus carp were caught including a 25lb specimen by Colin Burge who was also fishing in two-bar bay and a bag of 3 20lb plus carp for another angler fishing the dugout swim.
