John Kneebone had a cracking session on Lower Tamar last weekend landing 8 commons to 27lb 4oz using Mainline Cell boilies in two-nights fishing.
Mark Brett had several stunning common carp from Jennetts a few weeks ago the scales read 24lb 10oz, 23lb 6oz, 21lb 4oz and 27lb 7oz.
There is far more to Upper and Lower Tamar Lake than carp with a vast range of other coarse fish swimming within these waters. A concerted effort could I am sure bring some huge rewards with potential record breakers. Both lakes contain huge perch and eels. There are also specimen roach, bream and some large wild brown trout. The lower lake once held populations of specimen rudd and tench.
A superb multi species capture from Lower Tamar:
Between Aaron Bunning and his friend Dan they had 5 bream ranging from 6lb 8oz and 9lb, a huge hybrid of around 5lb, two carp of mid doubles and 23lb 12oz, a single perch of around 1lb 8oz, three eels to 2lb and a single trout. All fish fell to a large bed of pellets and particles, hookbaits consisted of maggots, fake corn and 12mm nashbait pop-ups. Aaron commented ‘Made a pleasant change to put the carp rods away and have a fun session with the lighter gear’.
Ricky Lawrence caught this stunning 24lb Mirror from Upper Tamar Lake, on the Cornwall and Devon border. Ricky fished during gale force winds and rain to tempt the fish which was stocked in 2017 at 21lbs and is known as ‘Flower’. the fish took a liking to a sticky krill boilie fished off the back of the wind.
Chris Hudson who caught this cracking 24.10 common from day ticket water Jennetts at the weekend.
Ryan Willshire from Bude has been back among the action on Upper Tamar Lake on the Cornwall and Devon border. This 27lb 2oz common was the highlight of a two fish catch at the weekend. Mainline IB boilies doing the business for Ryan again!
Bude anglers Chris Hudson and Matt Pepperell enjoyed a great session at Upper Tamar lake on the Cornwall and Devon border over the weekend landing 8 carp from the Lookout Tower swim. Chris had this cracking 24lb 1oz mirror that was stocked in 2017 at 22lb. The majority of fish were mid doubles. All caught on CC Moore Live system with white pop ups fished over the top.
Ryan Willshire from Bude has now had six different 20lb plus carp from Upper Tamar in two weeks! This time Ryan braved the awful weather and fished the Lookout Tower swim which produced three fish. A cracking common of 23.04, a fish known as ‘Steve’s Mirror’ which was 21.04 and another mirror of 19.00. The two mirrors fell to Mainline IB pop ups and the Common to pop up corn and all over a bed of Mainline Hybrid boilies.
