Furzebray Carp Lakes was in fine pre-Christmas form with two notable captures in particular.
Cornish angler Dave Page set a new lake record on the Island Carp Lake at the Devon venue with the capture of Charlotte at 41lb 14oz during a massively successful trip. The big mirror fell during a wet and windy 24-hour session that also yielded The Mint Common at 31lb 4oz and a 21lb mirror.
Elsewhere on the same lake, Leigh Short bagged the mirror known as Peanut at a new top weight of 35lb 6oz. The fish has put on 4lb since August and takes the likely tally of 35-pounders in the lake to five.
