A commercial complex has shocked visitors by producing a raft of specimen bream in recent weeks.
The northern venue has been in great form all winter, with roach, carp and F1s providing plenty of action but these fish have been forced to play second fiddle since the mild weather arrived, with slabs up to 9lb dominating match and pleasure catches.
“We always knew these fish were here but they’d never shown in numbers but now they are coming out every day. In a recent match, one angler had three bream for over 20lb and won the event!” explained one local fisherman.
