Record numbers of thirties reported as spring arrives early at Bury Hill


With un-seasonally good weather for the time of year, carp anglers at Bury Hill Fisheries have been catching record numbers of thirties with over 20 thirties reported in just the past couple of weeks.

Bury Hill FisheriesFollowing a few weeks of reasonable weather, the past couple of weeks has seen a run of BIG fish reported from both Temple and the Old Lake which has included 20 or so thirties, many at record weights, which is excellent fishing for the time of year. Below are details and pictures of a few of the most recent thirties caught.
Whilst Temple takes most of the limelight owing to its huge head of thirties, the Old Lake also holds a good head of bigger fish and regularly produces the odd thirty. Fishing his first session ever on the Old Lake, Rohan Huth from London had a cracking session catching 7 carp which included the first thirty of the year, a stonking common weighing 30lb 6oz. Fishing Nash Scopex 20mm boilies and Strawberry pop ups, Rohan caught from the open water in front of peg 15.

Turning to Temple, Barry Mitchell bagged a terrific brace of BIG Temple thirties this week in the shape of two mirrors weighing 36lb 11oz, the largest of the year so far and 33lb together with a smaller mirror weighing 22lb 2oz. Barry fished peg 3, catching on a CC Moore’s Strawberry and Cream pop up which he fished over Mainline Cell free offerings close to the island margins with one of his big fish coming from the channel between the islands. Both thirties were a new PB for Barry.

Another angler to do well on Temple this week was Stuart Mountjoy who has a cracking session catching 7 fish which included a brace of BIG thirties, both mirrors weighing 36lb 6oz and 35lb 3oz. Fishing swim 10, Stuart fished Cell baits over a few free offerings close to the margins.

Catching his first ever fish from Temple, Mark Gibson bagged a a well deserved stunning big mirror weighing 35lb 8oz recently, which he followed with a smaller mirror weighing 22lb 4oz. Both fish came from the left hand side of swim 14 close to the channel on balanced Cell boilies.

Temple’s guru Sean Howard has now caught three thirties in just a couple of weeks weighing 35lb 1oz, 30lb 1oz and 30lb together with a run of twenties which included a stunning mirror just under thirty weighing 29lb 8oz. Catching from different swims, Sean caught all his fish on glugged cream pop ups fished to both the island margins and open water.

Fishing his first session on Temple this year, Adrian Trent was rewarded with a brace of thirties, a stonking mirror weighing 35lb 2oz and a lovely common weighing 34lb 4oz. Fishing peg 13, Adrian caught his common on a popped up boilie which he fished close to the island margins catching his big mirror on corn also from the island margins.
