Old Lake in fine form at Bury Hill Fisheries

Anglers targeting the carp in Bury Hill Fisheries Old Lake have certainly been capitalising on the fishes autumn feed up with three different thirties reported in the space of a few days.

Wayne Davies decided to celebrate his thirty eighth birthday by fishing from peg 38 on the Surry day-ticket water and topped a six fish catch with a cracking 32lb 10oz common.

The Redhill-based rod also landed carp of 20lb 1oz, 18lb 6oz, 16lb 4oz, 14lb and 8lb using glugged 20mm Sticky Krill boilies tipped with a piece of Korda Pink Fruity Squid imitation maize cast towards a fallen tree at the side of an island.
Just days later, fishing at the opposite end of the lake, Colin Watson helped himself to a 32lb 2oz common.

The 21-year-old from Chessington put his faith in a trimmed down Mainline Cell boilie which he cast out in conjunction with a PVA bag of chopped freebies to a spot at 40 yards range. Over the course of his 24 hour session, he landed a further 21 carp between 12lb and 22lb.

The final angler to get in on the action was Malcom Bubb, who was rewarded for travelling all the way from Bournemouth with a 33lb common (pictured).

Fishing 12mm drilled halibut pellets over a bed of hemp and pellets he landed the impressive specimen along with five other fish to 20lb, from the margins of peg 75.
