Carp on the move..

With fish to over 30 lbs already being caught this year at Sharnbrook, congratulations go to Jason Fox for this never seen before fine common weighing in at 36 lbs 10 oz’s. Looking back at Steve Hulatt’s current record of 38 lbs 7 oz’s from 2015 we wonder if this year will see us with our first fish of over 40 lbs?

March Match and other news

The closing match of the season was fished on a wet and windy day at Tingrith Manor Lake on the 5th March.

Back towards full strength 18 of our regulars fished through the wind and rain to produce some excellent bags of fish for what were considered to be winter conditions.

1st           John Clennett     72 lbs 14ozs

2nd          Tony Kay              66 lbs

3rd          John Wilson        62 lbs 1oz

4th          Dave Askew        58 lbs 8ozs

5th          Trevor                  57 lbs 1oz

6th          Gary Page            52 lbs 8ozs

7th          Andy Boocock    41 lbs 3ozs

Fantastic weights all round with a total weigh in for the match of 540 lbs.

It has to be remembered that all three lakes at Tingrith fish well and Woodlands continues to produce pleasant surprises. Pictured below are Dave Maple with a fine example of a 2 lb Crucian Carp caught mid water with a banded pellet, Vinny Bunker with a lovely metallic 5 lb fish taken on a 10mm boilie. To add to the mix a fine perch of 3 lbs caught by William Savage.

Also everything went well for the last river match of the season fished on the River Great Ouse at Kempston on the 12th March.

16 match anglers took this last opportunity to fish this fine stretch of river and they were not disappointed. The winning weights were as follows:

1st          Terry Noble         31 lbs 6ozs

2nd          Mick Burrell        18 lbs 2ozs

3rd         Paul Caton          17 lb 10ozs

4th          Nigel Porter        14 lb 5ozs

5th          Neil Shern            11 lb 8ozs

6th          Alan Hobbs          9 lbs 3ozs

Whilst there were a number of DNW’s the chub shone through in the winning weights with Terry Noble weighing in specimen fish of 6lb 6ozs and two of 6 lbs 4ozs. Likewise Nigel Porter took fish up to 6lb 3ozs.

Not limited to match fishing this stretch offers superb sport for the leisure angler with earlier in the month Alan Hobbs taking 6 fish to 5 and 6 lb and Peter Munday taking two chub from a nearby swim earlier in the week the best weighing in at 5 lbs 9ozs (pictured below)IMG_4055 cropped

Record Book Re-written

A record breaking season for chub started for Vauxhall Angling Club on the Radwell and Sharnbrook sections with a fish of 7 lbs 8 oz’s caught by David Sansom. Just a few weeks after Gary Hickling took a fish of 7 lbs 10 oz’s. Now Gary has now raised the bar even higher with a fish of 8 lbs 8 oz’s.

There was a time not that far in the past when a 4 lb chub would have been considered a good fish. 3 years ago fish of 5 lb and 6 lb started to appear in numbers and this year we have had many over the 7 lb mark.

Chub Study Group Secretary, Iain Nairn, is quoted as saying “The fish in the Great Ouse seem to be growing bigger every season thanks to angler’s baits and the huge population of crayfish making them fatter. I wouldn’t be surprised if it produced a new record in the coming seasons”. Neither would we!

With the River Great Ouse fining down and just a hint of colour now is an excellent time to go on a barbel and chub hunt at either Sharnbrook or Radwell.
Pictured below is one of our veteran anglers, Alan Lawrence, with a fine specimen barbel weighing in at 16 lbs 2 ozs taken on a home made boilie wrapped in paste.
