Quick trip down to horseshoe this morning. Aim was to catch a few carp on paste. Fished paste over pellet at 6m. It started with iffy bites from silver's but the carp turned up after about 15mins. They would not however stay around for long. And when the sun came out it got harder. Anyway Jon popped along for a chat and to photograph the fish (carp in the keepnet by special permission). 15 carp up to 5lb and about 10lb of silvers. Nice day out.

 Tunde and Alan.  We would like to thank you for the lovely opportunities we had so far at Bromeswell Fishing Lakes. We fished there on the 10th of September, 14 and 15th of October. It is a fantastic venue specially because I have never done carp fishing before these 3 dates. Between 2 of us we had 10 fish out of the lake and we lost about 7.  point was today when we had a double take what we thought it is near to impossible to have a fish each at the same time.  Kind Regards and Thank You Again Tunde and Alan

Joe n Charlie, nice one, start em young.

Cleared and remade swims

New pb off the surface weighed in at 13lb 1oz.

The only known Greater Sleeper fish in Suffolk


Common carp banked this morning. I was after some of the better roach & had changed to a single piece of corn in an effort to get through the small fish. Needless to say, on a float set-up & centre pin loaded with 4lb line it gave a good account of itself! No idea what she weighed, I had scales with me that I use for chub fishing & they banged down at their limit of 12lbs. Looking at the scale pattern on its right shoulder & upper flank & comparing it to shots on your gallery, I believe it may be a mid-double thatís been banked before by Nigel Crowley & Dan Johnston. See what you think.

Pic 1 Had another good trip yesterday in very hot weather.
The fish came on the feed during the evening
which is when I got my first double out of the lake a cracking 10lb Ghost carp off the bottom on boilie.

Pic 2 Although having 1 eye, this was the best looking fish of my afternoon
 to late evening session, peg 12. Weighing 5lb. This was one of 5 carp and 1 tench caught.
All the same sort of weight biggest was 6lb. Great fishing!
