Forties galore at Wingham Lakes

The specimen carp in Wingham Lakes have been on the feed over the last week with four different 40lb-plus commons visiting the bank in the space of a few days.

One of the lucky anglers to cash in on the sport was Mark Vicary who landed his first ever forty in the shape of this 42lb 12oz fish from the 15-acre Kent venue.

The 47-year-old, Hastings-based builder fished towards the back of a weedbed in 6ft of water at 40yds range and offered a pop-up hookbait over 2kg of boilies.
