The lake started off fishing very well with all anglers catching very well but it got icy cold and the wind got up and everybody struggled, but by then Rob ward had done enough, fishing the pole on two lines with pellet and corn he had 9 big carp between 4 & 6lb and 12 below a pound. In 2nd Jim had a lot of carp round the lb mark on pole and pellet and only managed to land 2 bigger fish 7lb each.
