During the late part of winter we had a small number of carp anglers fishing here at Freedom Lakes.
I couldn’t be sure but the carp these guys caught indicated that the carp had again enjoyed a very good Winter.
During April these early signs have been confirmed, particularly in the 6 acre lake (Sacha) and the 19 acre lake (Angele).
Lake Sacha was fished by 10 anglers in the 4 weeks of April and we have seen a lot of beautiful big carp get caught.
The total number of carp caught in lake Sacha for the month is 95 carp..
39 x 20lb-30lb
44 x 30lb-40lb
12 x 40lb-46.10lb (Congratulations to Mike Williams on the new lake record at 46.10lb)
We had 23 carp anglers visit lake Angele during April everyone apart from one caught carp above 30lb. Many of them caught carp above 40lb aswell.
The total number of Carp above 20lb caught during the 4 weeks is 167.
59 x 20lb-30lb
81 x 30lb-40lb
27 x 40lb-48.08lb (Congratulations to David Coates on the new lake record at 48.08lb)
The big lake has been slightly more challenging, as expected, with many of the known 45lb+ fish avoiding capture so far. Plenty of new 20kg fish have come through so we are quite excited about the weights of the bigger carp.
We’ve seen several huge fish during the month including a common that looks to be above 55lb and someone soon should get a big surprise!
19 anglers fished the lake during April and the total number of carp landed was 155.
19 x 20-30lb
81 x 30-40lb
55 x 40-49.08lb
The month of May has started and in the first 2 days we’ve seen 5 more 40′s and out of 25 fish only 3 under 30lb.. Watch this space.
