Gary Hagues, co-owner of Castle Lake, has been busy preparing the new Angling Lines venue for next season. The first job was a lake netting. Martin and Shirley from the A.L team were present to film the occasion and are busy putting together a video documenting the day, but for the mean time here’s a note from Gary…
‘I’ve just returned from a very hard 3 days netting at Castle Lake. Between removing nuisance fish, we returned approximately 220 carp over 35lb. Included in this were an incredible 80 carp over 40lb and up to 54lb.’

Nets ready!

‘Below is a list of fish that were removed from the lake;
  • 2 tonnes of Bream
  • 1 tonne of Catfish
  • 1 tonne of Silver Fish
  • 200 carp below 24lb
Due to the nature of the netting, we missed at least 300-350 so the overall stock will be around 500-600 carp. With removing a lot of nuisance fish the carp will rocket next year with much less competition for the rich food sources within the lake. I would like to thank all my friends who gave up there own time and a lot of effort to help with such a massive task.
Gary, Castle Lake Owner’
