Daniel Duncan, who is staying in Osprey Lodge on Cherry Lake, is on his first visit to Cherry Lake. He got off to a fast start by having a 25lb Mirror and has today (Wednesday) followed this up by becoming the 95th member of the Cherry Lake 30+ club.
We are getting increasingly excited ( I know this sounds a little sad and clearly reflects my age!) by the countdown to achieving the 100th member landmark.
Daniel landed this 33-08 Mirror around 11.00 following a good fight. This Carp was the same one as caught recently by Ken O’Connor at 32-08. This indicates to me that the Carp are now feeding to recover some of the weight lost by spawning despite the heat. It is funny how a Carp which goes uncaught for 9 months then gets caught twice in a relatively short period.
This Carp is not the only one feeding hard. In total we have had 12 Carp caught since Monday. I hope to get some photos and will include more information in my next updates.
