12th December saw The Mead get netted by Mainstream Fisheries. The lads did a great job and along with the carp we took out rod and line over the past 12 months we removed 55 carp in total between 10-18lb. We also managed to remove around 800lb of smaller silver fish leaving plenty of specimen roach and perch which went 4lb+. The Mead is now producing specimen fish in every species which swim around the lake, 2lb roach can be found, 4lb+ perch, 20lb+ pike and 10lb+ Tench to mention just a few. 17th December December has so far thrown up some stunning carp going well in to the 30lb bracket but it’s the younger 20′s which are doing the business At the moment, namely our Lana Springs stockies, which have been putting in regular appearances and they are stunning looking specimens. Stewart, who has been visiting The Mead on a regular basis, has been having some great success landing plenty of 20lb+ mirrors and commons of the Lana strain and in there winter attire they look awesome. Clive and Andy have been having a go for the pike with great success I might add landing specimens well into double figures, no big girls yet but it won’t be long lads.
