Its been a mad couple of weeks since my last report with most of our waters producing some outstanding results for visiting anglers. The stand out session has to be the PCF event held at Holme Fen Fishery where our ‘magnificent 11’ hosted by Mark Parish caught an astonishing 42 carp in 48 hours, comprising of five twenties, 29 thirties and eight forties to 47lb plus. Some amazing individual catches were made too!
Wayne Irvine led the way with two twenties, eight thirties, including two 39lb-plus mirrors, and three forties to 44lb. Paul Fitzjohn bagged six thirties and a 47lb 5oz mirror, Ady Jakings has six thirties and two forties and Ady’s cousin James took six thirties. Ben Copestake broke the then lake record with a mirror weighing 47lb 15oz, Dan Hadman and Paul Hudson also caught a 40 each. All anglers were using boilies from the PCF standard range as well as the HFF mix (aka The Relish). Since the event other visiting anglers have managed some outstanding results including a new lake record of 55lb caught by Lee Rayner as part of a 10 fish catch on Squiddly Diddly. Holme Fen Fishery is open to all anglers and spaces can be booked online at www.holmefenfishery.co.uk.
At Woodpecker lake at Earith Lakes Fisheries anglers have been struggling for some consistent results but some lovely fish have been caught! New member Rob Evans has been coin rather well and his recent captures included a 30lb-plus common and several 30lb-plus mirrors to 38lb 13oz, but the pick of his recent captures for me has to be the lovely mid-twenty zip linear pictured.
Our Whittle Mere syndicate at Teakettle Fisheries is starting to pick up, with a few nice fish gracing the bank. The very popular fishery bailiff Steve Evans did an overnight session on neighbouring Thorney Mere and managed a lovely plated mirror weighing 32lb 2oz using his favourite Coco Fruit boilies.
We have had some good results on our other waters, including Abbey lake, Blackberry Pool and Willow lake at Fenland Fisheries, and will include then in our next report.
