Mac’s huge cat­fish catches the eye

Float Fish Farm

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Sport -

Over the past few weeks I have been shown lit­er­ally hun­dreds of plea­sure catches, quite a few from an­glers get­ting back onto the River Nene. Some­big bream and carp have been taken from Ferry Mead­ows too.

But it was Mac John­son’s huge cat­fish weigh­ing over 60lb that re­ally caught my­eye.

The big fish came from the Sands Lake at Float Fish Farm Fish­ery on a 24-hour ses­sion.

I’ve caught carp to 20 lb and big fish abroad, but noth­ing any­thing like the size of Mac’s big catch which was a per­sonal best by some dis­tance.


An in­vite to fish with Fen­land rods saw me lin­ing the banks at Rook­ery Wa­ter son the usu­ally very pro­duc­tive Mag­pie pool.

But heavy rain all day Satur­day and a cold night meant we caught it all wrong.

So I was left to pick off a few fish with pel­let up in the wa­ter while watch­ing Dick War­ren er catch all day on cat meat.

He topped the field with 112 lb 10 oz from peg 11 and also scooped the Golden Peg en­ve­lope.

Run­ner-up from peg five was the con­sis­tent Kevin Lee, again all caught on meat for 76lb 3oz, then came Den­nis Sam­bridge with 72lb 13oz and Ty­rone Horn on 72lb 3oz.
