Temple Lake Latest Catches week ending 14/10/18
Bury Hill has a new fishery record, in the form of Nemo at 46 lb 4 oz, which is up 2 lb 3 oz on the previous record, set in May this year.
Rob Winters, from Worthing, was the happy captor, and he was fishing peg 9 with an 18 mm Sticky Baits Manilla pop-up, on a day session.
The previous capture was three weeks ago by bailiff Tony Sawyers at 44 lb 1 oz, from peg 1, and prior to the latest capture, the record was held by Chris Spencer with the famous fish at 44 lb 11 oz in early May, from peg 1, beating Martin Goddard’s capture at 43 lb 3 oz, from peg 3, in December 2015.
This latest capture came on Wednesday of last week, a sunny day that set a new UK record for the warmest mid-October day for 17 years, at 26 degrees.
Also landed this week was The Ghost, which fell to Richard Daines, from Sutton, at 36 lb 2 oz.
Richard was on a 48-hour session at peg 4, and was using two home-made 16 mm Carp Company The Nut Mix boilies made by his 15-year-old son, fishing between the island over a scattering of freebies.
The last reported capture of The Ghost was four weeks ago at 35 lb 6 oz to Terry Baker, fishing peg 9, and its biggest recorded weight was 40 lb 10 oz in May last year to Terry Burns.
