Karen's Lake Catch Report

Just a polite reminder about fish care and the use of unhooking mats and cradles after landing fish for photo takes. This is important for welfare of the fish. This video is a good example.

Had a great spooky session on Karen's Saturday night with Hannah-joy. Shame no one wanted to join the seasonal fun. Hannah smashed her PB again with this 21lb 7oz Common so proud of how far she's coming along. Had a total of 7 Carp and one pesky annoying Tench. 29/10/2023.

Andrew Lamude fishing Karen's Lake.

Me and the father in law have been members for a couple of years now. We joined because I was looking for somewhere nice to take him, with good parking and toilets. He’s not good on his feet and can’t walk very far at all. The lakes are perfect for him, a good path all the way around, so he can use his scooter.

We mostly fish Karen’s, as carp fishing is easier for him, less tangles!! We share a peg and fish one rod each, so I can look after him!

He caught 3 carp pretty quickly after we set up, biggest 6lb 4, then it went quiet for a long time. I was packing up my rod first, then his rod went screaming off, and he was in for a bit of a battle, not a bad finish to the day, landing a 19lb 4. And I didn’t catch anything, but still really enjoyed watching and helping him.

Just want to say a thank you to everyone that helps look after the lakes, so I can take him fishing, well not sure I want to take him now after he out fished me!!  02/09/2023.
