It was a pleasure to have Jim & Julia at Compton's Lakes this week, with Jim fishing and Julia keeping Jim company and relaxing. Conditions were difficult and changeable throughout the week, but with perseverance and great angling skills, Jim managed to coax out 4 carp on the bank, with 2 lumps lost.

The Carp weighed in at 20lb 8oz, 25lb 4oz (named 'Crown Jules' by Julia), 39lb 11oz (named 'The Tailor' by Jim) and 40lb 4oz. The 39lb 11oz was last caught in April 2016 at 22lb 8oz, and has gained an incredible 17lb 3oz in just 15 months. This is definitely one to watch for the future as it has the makings of a very big fish!
As well as the Carp, Jim also managed to land 2 Pike to 10lb 8oz and 5 Tench to 6lb 9oz.
We are looking forward to seeing both Jim & Julia again next year!

The 10lb 8oz Pike that took a boilie! Incredibly a larger pike had a go at this one as seen by the marks on the body....
