Temple Lake Latest Catches week ending 30/7/17
One of Temple Lake’s biggest residents was landed last week, by Merstham angler Martin Plank.
The 38 lb 2 oz mirror carp (see photo) came from peg 2 on a Sticky Baits Buchu-Berry boilie over spod mix of corn and hemp.
In terms of numbers, Jon Botting had the best reported catch, with eight fish topped by the ‘other ghost’ at 31 lb over a weekend (see photos).
Jon, from Horsham, fished peg 9 with A2 Baits Creamy Toffee pop-ups over a bed of particles to the left-hand margin, also landing a 28 lb common, mirrors of 27 lb and 23 lb and a 21 lb common, with three stunning stockies.
The ‘other ghost’ was last reported at the end of March at 29 lb 8 oz to Steve Salvidge.
Also getting among the ‘thirties’, despite wet weather, was Mark Savage, who had a 34 lb common and a 22 lb mirror (see photos) from peg 9 on 10 mm pop-ups.
