Exciting start to the 2018-19 season sees our big Common carp on the bank at over forty pounds (pictured above)
This stunning fish was just one of a large catch of fish within the first few days to one member who also took a further two carp to over thirty pounds, half a dozen sizeable tench and a double figure bream to round off a memorable few days at the fishery. This fish is great news for the fishery as we had been expecting this and possibly another fish to top the forty pound mark sometime soon as they continue to increase their size in the rich waters we have here at Charity Lakes.
With many of our stocked fish from Dinton Pastures increasing by 4-5lbs a year it wont be long before we hope to see many others up around this size as the fishery really starts to show its pedigree to produce very large amazing looking carp.
Since opening several of our other members have got amongst the fish and with some warm weather now forecast its hoped the warmer waters will bring many more fish onto feed. The tench have been obliging to with members taking the customary large numbers of fish from the tench lake so expect some hectic sport if you venture onto this lake.
The fishery is looking in superb condition and we are expecting a fantastic season ahead as we have invested in the fishery over the winter especially with the installation of a new section of purpose built tornado otter fencing as we intend to replace and strengthen our existing fence over the next few years. We have a few permits still available so if you fancy the possibility of a 40lb plus common this season get in touch via our membership page.
