Clover 38lb

Clover was banked on August 18th by Damien Beal at a massive weight of 38lb!! This fish is just unbelievable it just keeps growing and at this rate should be pushing 40+ by the spring… The weed here at the mo is not to everyones liking but this is what weed and clear water does to the fish!! never seen her looking so good 🙂 🙂 Well done Damien on a great capture.

Phil Gilhespy has been among the fish at Upper Tamar Lake recently and proved his skill with both rod and camera sending South West Lakes Trust some fantastic images of fishing, wildlife and Common carp up to 20.02.  Phil has had 8 fish in two sessions all caught on homemade boilies over a scattering of the same bait. The images illustrate perfectly the joys of carp fishing.

Sue Seton-Smith, 53 from Southampton, and Friend Petula Little showed the men in their life how it’s done when they both caught Personal Bests! Sue caught a Personal Best 20lb 10oz Common from the Main Carp Lake using a homemade wafter rig with half cell bottom bait and trimmed half cell white pop up with a spread of boilies near to the lillies. Petula caught a personal  21lb 1oz Mirror from Xanadu on an Almond Goo Pop Up over Manilia Boilies. Both Ladies beat all the Men in their party and caught the Biggest Fish out of them all!!

Carl Cliff Brown who caught the Complex’s 1st EVER 50 last year came back to the Kracking Carp to see if his luck would continue and managed to catch himself two Mirrors of 24lbs and 30lbs, and we have to say, we had to do a double take as they look so similar!!
