As you all know already, our annual Netting revealed our biggest ever Catfish weighing in at a record weight of 90lbs 11oz, we also weighed in two 60’s to 68lbs and four 70’s to 78lbs from the Main Carp Lake, which is the largest of our holiday lakes and home to the biggest head of carp and the largest predators on the complex. The fish were safely re-located to stock ponds while works are carried out on the lake and will be re-homed following completion.
Zyggy Said – “The record for Wels Catfish was discontinued in the late eighties at 60lbs, this was due to fish being introduced at 100lbs or more from the Continent. It took me 4 years to get official planning permission from MAFF. I am particularly proud as our Catfish were introduced as small Catfish spawned in this country, the biggest about 10 inches, well under 1lb. We are the only venue with proper provenance to have stocked Catfish and also bred them on our fish farm.”
SO LADIES AND GENTS, IT WILL BE INTERESTING TO SEE WHO CATCHES IT FIRST!!
We’re off to the forest now for our Annual Treasure Hunt to find some bottles of Magic Wine!! Happy Friday All!
