No massive fish for me, but two little 'uns in a couple of hours this evening. This is the better of the two and just scraped a doule. Bits box is just under 10 inches long. (Hopefully the linky thing works!)
Both on naked chods with pink squid wafters from the rather nice Handcraft range Cheers Gav!

I guess it depends on how the lakes ran, easier to justify I think on a day ticket rather than a syndicate. I should have a ticket coming up fairly soon in a lake where the owner is fastidious about an optimal ecosystem in the lakes, trying to get them big nautically and itís working well, unfortunately the tickets expensive because doing things properly isnít cheap, but the plus side of that is you see where the money goes, an extra 50 quid on a 50 man syndicate ticket is 2.5k which is a nice bit of supplementary food for em. And as you say there are certain times of the year those who own the lakes knows itís important to have food avaliable for them

Supplementary feeding is always important. I often wonder how big carp would get each year if they had a longer rest and they were fed in between! Itís something I have done for 15 years now, Iím adamant itís why the fish look so pristine and make good weights all year round. Especially for the month after spawning. Mine get double rations for 3/4 weeks 😉

They had a quarter of a ton of BP Milling Gold fed to them last year Gav, they were generally left unfished for until this April, we had a little dabble in the Christmas break to see if they had done anything which is when I caught the one common at 19.8, we have about a dozen or so of the 44 fish we put back in go from 6,7,8lb weights to 15lb and upwards now to 19.8 being the best, surprisingly it is the commons that have done the better weights rather than the mirrors although the mirrors have done 4/5ish pounds on average and only 25 of the 44 of the stock have been out so far so there may be a few more surprises, the futures certainly looking good, we will supplementary feed for this year until October and then its purely down to the anglers bait.

Nice Carp looks like an old Sutton strain.

One on a dark sting recently no great shakes but the fish has put on 8lb and 9 ounces since we put it back in the lake last May after all the work we've done.
