For the second time Wingham has produced a 50lb common and a 50lb mirror in the same session. Andy Matthews started his 3 day trip with a very long common of 55-08, and finished it with the rarely caught big plated mirror at 52-00. Both fish were at their heaviest ever weight.
The long common has got a lot of potential to grow very much bigger when she fills out and could well overtake the 59-08 common in due course.
I stocked the big plated at 8-08 as a 3 year (pic below as a 23lber) and this beautiful carp has long been the most sought after in the lake.
Meanwhile the carp record has been broken on the Main Lake with Nick Gent’s first carp from the water being a 52-10 mirror! Nick therefore becomes another member of the Super Virgins Club, those whose first fish is a 50lber.
