Lee Waring's fantastic weekend

He lands a 42-08 Mirror along with 4 other 30's
Friday 19 May 2023

Whilst the headline us about Lee Waring's amazing weekend, I thought I would start with Lee Rowe's capture of the impressive 36-10 Mirror pictured above. Lee did well to catch three Carp on what was generally a slowish few days across the fishery.

The interesting thing about this Carp, is that Lee caught the same fish in October 2020 at 28lb. I am not sure what the odds are of catching the same fish are, but it is remarkable nevertheless! A growth rate of 8lb over this period (albeit probably with a few pounds of spawn), seems a good steady growth rate.

I am not sure why, but the week of Monday 12 to Friday 16th June is empty across the fishery (except for Grebe Lodge). So if you fancy a visit at this time, we have some good deals on offer Please contact me on info@cherrylakes.co.uk or 01285 869887 if you are interested..

Lee Waring had a fabulous first visit to Cherry Lake last weekend and had a result which made the lake look easy. Fishing mainly to the far bank and fully utilising a bait boat, Lee caught 11 Carp, including four thirties ( 37lb Ghost Common, 35-05 Mirror, 33 and 31lb Commons) and our 6th different forty of the year. Wow! Needless to say Lee smashed his PB several times during his eventful weekend.

With 'the efforts of both 'The Lee's', our running total for the year is now 40 different Carp over 30lb from Cherry Lake. This includes 6 different carp over 40lb+. Interestingly, most of the really big Carp have yet to put in an appearance. Only 'The Scuff' at 45-06 has been caught this year.

We are still waiting to see 6 of the 40lb+ carp which were caught and recorded last year. The one's we are really looking forward to seeing are ......'Dick' (last out at 50-02). 'Ruby (last out at 47-04) and 'The Patch' (normally the biggest Common which goes 45lb+). The 'Pretty One' is also proving very hard to get and has not been out for 18 months. When she does she will be a stunning new 40+.

With the Carp approaching their heaviest weights of the year, we are hoping for some pleasant surprises over the next few weeks!

Well done to both the Lee's.
