Lillypool seasons off to a flyer with a new lake record mirror carp

To get the 2011 season underway Lillypool opened its gates to Andy, Mark and 12yr old Ben. When they arrived it was turning into a blistering hot day for the 9th of April, infact it reached a high of 72f.

Anyway, tea made, we made our way around the lake so they could choose their swims. They were really tired from their trip so they didn`t really bother to fish until Sunday… and what a start they had… several fish landed and it looked good for a load more.

It`s now Tuesday evening and with 24 fish on the bank so far they really have got off to a flyer!

Young Ben has broken his PB with a 25lb common and dad Andy his with a 25.8lb common.

But there was bigger and better things to come for Andy in the way of a new Lillypool lake record. Smashing his new PB by almost double, he’s had a stunning 48.8lb mirror!

Final total and catch report will be on-line at the end of the week.
