Congratulations go to Mark Perham who smashed his personal best banking Furzebray Islands Lakes biggest resident Charlotte at a weight of 45lb 12oz. Mark had fished well all week but with no luck, but then only an hour before he was due to pack up he struck the magnificent Charlotte.

The carp of Island Lake are not easy to catch but what stunning specimens they have become. The capture also illustrates a point I always try to emphasize in that whilst a bait is in the water there is always a chance and for this reason I always de-tackle my rods at the very last minute.  Never get despondent for that one fish can turn a blank trip into that trip of a lifetime.
