Luton Angling Club report | Newsletter 24th April 2011


Luton Angling Club was founded in 1922 and offers a varied range of venues including several lakes, stretches of river and over 12 miles of the Grand Union Canal. This the the Luton Angling Club Weekly Newsletter - 24th April 2011.

Luton Angling Club Catch ReportsNorth House Lakes larger residents have been making an appearance this week. Chris Cole had a 30lb common and a mirror carp known as The Wanderer has been out twice at 30lb 7oz. Firstly Josh Hammersley from Sandy landed the well known mirror followed by Danny Smith from Henlow. Josh fished a home made pop up during a short session while Danny fished an A2D spicy crab & mussel bait. Danny who was fishing with his brother Michael also added commons of 18lb 14oz, 15lb 12oz and 13lb with Michael having one heavily scaled mirror of 15lb 10oz.

Ian Mortimer fished the Grand Union Canal on St Georges Day and was rewarded for his early start when he caught a 20lb 6oz mirror carp at 7.30am. Ian used a classic MKV split cane rod and a centrepin reel to subdue the specimen fish.

Brett Herdman fished for 3 hours at Slapton using waggler fished corn and had 8.5lb of roach, with 3 of 4 skimmers. In another short session in a different area of the canal Brett only managed a few roach, but also had a mirror carp of 9lb 11oz. A day ticket angler fishing from his boat landed the best fish of the year so far from the canal, with a mirror carp of just over 26lb using hair rigged pizza crust!

Lol Smith fished Grove Church using long pole tactics he had a great day out with a bite every put in using soft pellet. Roach and skimmers made up most of his catch.

Another member fished at Chelmscote on Saturday and caught an impressive haul of fish using pole tactics including a few bream of 3lb+.

The next work party is at Lavendon Mill on the 30th April start at 0930.
