Devin Whitwell with his fine 20lb 13oz carp.

We certainly have a good selection of waters on our doorstep and already Float Fish Farm Fishery is producing big catfish and some fine carp.

Local rod Devin Whitwell caught a fine looking specimen going to the scales at 20lb 13oz at the weekend.

He went several hours without a bite, but he was well rewarded for his patience.

Peterborough & DAA match organiser Mike Smith will be running a Charity Match on both lakes at Ferry Meadows in aid of Thorpe Hall, Peterborough.

The match is to be held on Saturday May 13 and will be a maximum 80 pegs. So you will need to get in touch with Mike as soon as possible as I am sure it’s going to be a sell-out event.

Closing date for entry is Saturday May 6, so to book your place email [email protected]
