Tony gets his lake record champagne

In the last 10 days we have seen a new Common record and then a new lake record for Heron Lake. First, regular visitor, Kevin Watts used his strong knowledge of Heron to tempt a 60lb 4oz common out of Gaz & Geezers swim using an 18mm garlic and liver boilie topped with a 12mm pop up of the same flavour. This fish is the first 60+ common at our venue!

On Sunday 19th July the Broomhall group joined us for their second trip and Tony did not wait long for his first fish – a massive 64lb 7oz mirror that easily broke our current lake record. The same snowman set up caught this beauty as well.

We have also had a new grass carp lake record of 45lbs 2oz, so the records are tumbling as we get back into the season. The fish have obviously been enjoying the large amounts of carpet feed, we have been putting in during lockdown!

Kevin’s new common record 60.04lbs


Its great to be back with our first post Covid 19 catch report!

Bit slow on Kingfisher which will need time to settle down after the works and a year of grass. Great news for Kevin who had never had a 50 at Puyravaud despite a double figure number of trips. Now he jumps straight into the 60’s club and gets his first 50 as well. Well done that man!!!!!!!!
