BIG CARP OVER THE BOR­DER

WHITE SPRINGS FISHERY, SWANSEA, S WALES

Angling Times (UK) - - SOUTH -

AT SWANSEA’S White Springs Fishery, the aptly-named Spec­i­men Lake has seen a string of 20lb-plus fish hit­ting the bank, and An­thony Needs’ re­cent ses­sion saw three fish over the 30lb mark landed in 24 hours.

From peg 10, An­thony fished boilies for fish of 31lb 3oz, 33lb 10oz and 33lb 12oz, break­ing his per­sonal best twice. Pegs 6A and 6 have also shown plenty of form, with boilies and pop-ups on chod rigs tak­ing carp to 29lb 8oz.

From the Big Pit’s New Cabin, plenty of runs from fish from 15lb to 22lb have fallen to

White Springs’ own Squid and Oc­to­pus boilies.

On the Canal and Match Lakes, nets of carp and mixed fish be­tween 50lb and 80lb have been fea­tur­ing – with pel­let and caster fished shal­low work­ing the best for the bet­ter weights.
