Low Pressure Big Fish!

posted in: Carp Fishing, Sidebar | 0

Big low pressure systems with mild air from the South West combined with wind and rain often bring the big fish the feed as anglers found whilst fishing South Molton Lakes at Furzebray and Hacche Lane.

(Above) Graham Kelly  made the most of a  cancellation at Furzebray !!! Graham banked one of his target fish from Island Lake  The mint common at an all time high of 35lb 12oz.

Lee Rolls has been a long time member of the Hacche Lake  syndicate and set a new  lake record banking 32lb 14 oz he then went on and broke it again a couple of hours later with another fish of 33lb 8oz.

There is a strict no visitor rule to keep it quiet for the paying angler’s, if anyone wishes to have a look they can ring to arrange a viewing.

Blackspot – Furzebray 45lb 12oz

posted in: Carp Fishing, Sidebar | 0

The carp known as Blackspot has been tempted from Furzebray at weight of 45lb 12oz. It was caught during the spring at a weight of 39lb 12oz a massive weight increase of 6lb. At this rate this carp and others in the lake could be nudging 50lb next year!

When I started carp fishing back in the early eighties such a water would have been unheard of in North Devon. Waters that contained such huge carp were spoken of in hushed tones and I would suggest that Furzebray now holds fish to almost match those at Redmire Pool in its glory days.

Pearly at 29lb 10oz – Another Furzebray Beauty

posted in: Carp Fishing, Sidebar | 0

Steve Pinn is now part of CR Baits and enjoyed recent success at Furzebray banking a fine carp known as Pearly at 29lb 10oz
With everything packed away except for rods and bed I was resigned to my fate of blanking but thought I’d give it another hour. Then out of the blue this beast, a fish known as ‘Pearly’ came along. To say I’m chuffed is an understatement. She went a spawned out 29lb 10oz not quite the elusive 30 but what the heck.
As is the norm these days, CR Baits 12mm pastels (white) did the job on the trusty Ronald Mc Don’ over CR1 chops and particle.
Great angling Steve and thanks for the report.
