Fish of the month winner for September is Jonathan Bacon, he has really progressed with his fishing, starting on the smaller lakes and with patience he has gained more experience with his catches.
He landed this personal best carp at 15lb 10 oz on Majors Lake
Well done Jonathan.
The 1st catfish of the year was caught on Wednesday 22nd Febuary 2017 by Dan Pearse. It was his first ever catfish and it weighed in at a massive 71lb. The previous catfish lake record for Tuscany Lake stood at 70lb 6oz so not only did Dan have his first ever catfish, he broke the lake record.
A very well done to Dan, he took all the advice given to him and because he was geared up correctly he banked a fish of a lifetime.
Luckily Ben and I were able to assist Dan in the weighing and photos.
Here are a few pictures.
Dan Pearse was back again and amazingly smashed the Tuscany Lake record again, this time landing...
Great News...Great News...Great News....
