FISH OF THE WEEK WINNER 16TH SEPTEMBER IS...
Carol Pepper, 54 from Weston Super Mare, who fished the Koi Lake for the 1st time and caught a Personal Best 6lb 11oz Koi.
Carol’s Story –
“It was my first ever time on the Koi Lake, I took my brand New Rod and Bait Runner in the hope of catching one of these Beauties. I made sure I was loaded with the Paradise Pellet and was eager to get fishing!
All of a sudden, my bait runner screamed off so I struck, then the worst thing happened…all my line tangled like a bird’s nest! I managed to untangle it and luckily the fish was still on!! I fought the fish for about 5 minutes then safely netted my first ever Koi, and I was absolutely over the moon when I saw how big it was, my New PB 6lb 11oz Koi, I was so happy that I was shaking with all the adrenaline!!
WELL DONE CAROL, GREAT FISH!
