Liam Oldcroft Catch Report Week of 24th August 2019
This week we saw the return of Liam and his wife Georgina. Liam had unfinished business from last year, and it was Georgina's first visit to us, and what a week it turned out to be. Twenty five carp landed from thirty one runs, and nine of the fish caught would have beaten Liam's previous PB, which he has smashed with a new PB of 52lb.
Not only did Liam beat his PB, his wife Georgina (who has never fished before), had to help Liam out when he had a double take. Liam was playing a big fish, and talked Georgina through using the reel and setting the clutch. Twenty minutes later, Georgina had her first ever carp and a new PB with a Mirror weighing in at 48lb 8oz. Liam was still playing his fish, and after another 5 minutes or so, he landed a a lump of a Mirror weighing in at 51lb 8oz. That's bang on 100lb of fish in a double take!
Needless to say, they had a great week, and in total, landed four 50's, five 40's, three 30's, ten 20's and three teen's. One of the Common's they had was from Harry's Lake, and weighed in at 25lb 4oz. Total weight for the week was 831lb 10oz..
As usual, a bed of Dynamite Baits Complex-T 18mm boilies, pellet, crushed maize and wheat, with a Complex-T hookbait did the trick, with fish coming out of all areas of the lake.
We look forward to seeing Liam and Georgina again next year.
