BOTH Lakes at Town Parks Fishery produced some great sport for anglers enjoying the better-weather days,

The Specimen Lake saw catfish and carp taking baits from deep and shallow water pegs.

Matt Feakes enjoyed hectic sport from peg one, banking seven fish, six carp and a single cat.

All the fish were high teens or early 20s and fell to cell boilies.

Catfish of 25lbs 4oz and 21lbs 9oz fell to luncheon meat baits offered from peg 15 by visitor Brain Griffiths.

Gordon Batt took six fish, all carp, from peg six with baits offered under the overhanging trees.

Paul Baker fished peg 12 and netted a mirror of 17lbs 8oz on his first visit.

Jay Harper took a brace of carp to 17lbs 4oz form peg 10, Peter Hoare took a couple of carp to 17lbs from peg 9.

At the time of writing the carp have not yet spawned on this lake, so we are expecting some big fish to come to the net over the next few days.

The Match Lake also fished well with carp and silvers responding to baits offered at various depths.

Rod Metcalfe connected with plenty of fish from the dam wall pegs during several short visits.

Silvers fell to maggot and castor offered shallow with bags to the 60lbs mark reported.
