Club lake produces 32lb 6oz mirror

BIGGLESWADE & Hitchin AA bailiff, Pete Housden enjoyed a superb post-Christmas session on the club’s Swan Lake at Sandy in Bedfordshire when he landed this fine 32lb 2oz mirror.

Having already taken two 20lb-plus fish from the venue during December, specialist carper, Housden landed the fish using an Innovate Baits Steamie boilie. As a former trout fishery, Swan Lake has become popular amongst specimen anglers, containing some huge pike as well as numerous carp over 30lb.

The venue is available to fish to all B&HAA members costing £60 a year for a senior ticket, although anyone wishing to night fish will have to obtain a separate permit from the club.
