Ken Townley warned of this pending disaster in Carp World at least 14 years ago (Is it that long ago Ken!)

Stop, Jim. You are making me feel old!

But yes, it was 17 years ago that we found our first confirmed otter kill on a local club lake. Sadly it was - as is often the case - the biggest fish in the lake, one I had caught in 1979 at a (then) PB weight.

As you say, you can lead a horse etc etc...

Today i visited a lake that has been smashed to bits by otters....it looked like Billingsgate fish market, i found 12 carp from 20 odd lb to a known common of 37lb and a mirror of 41lb

the owner was in tears, his 40 odd years of developing his small fishery wiped out in two wks

probably a bit of both mate...people are defo more aware of the disaster as it accelerates, I know of so many waters in the nene valley and surrounding areas including local canals that are getting hit almost daily.

we all have a responsibility to report these kills as if its brushed under the carpet, nothing will ever get done, at least by reporting and making people aware we might have a glimmer of a chance

I wish he had been wrong (I bet he did)

But I found out the hard way that he was 100% right in his prediction. I got Photo's of Otter Carnage from another local water just last night, as it had been found!
Think thats 13- 14 waters hit with Otters for the first time, that I've been told about in under 10 days!

I can't belive just how fast they are spreading! Or is it people are now starting to come clean and admit that Otters are attacking there waters?

If you are right then it sounds like any unfenced fishery will have to change to a boating lake in a couple of years.
Anyone fancy putting their name down for the 2020 british stickle back championships!
