FRYERNING FISHERY in Essex continues to be in red-hot form producing two stunning 50 lb carp in the space of a few days.

The venue’s big ‘un The Gurm (below) hit the mat yet again at 52 lb 12 oz and The Boss (above) has also come out at a new high at 50 lb 2 oz, a new 50 for the complex.

The monster mirrors fell to the rods of Ian Davis and Mark Shildrake respectively.

Ian a 25-year-old manager from Billericay in the same county fish at 100 yards with a Nash Baits Tangerine Dream on a size 6 Chod hook.

He scattered boilies over his three rod set-up during his five night stint.

Mark, 52, opted for shorter work where his monster mirror fell to DT Baits N-Blend pop-up fished over a gravel bar at 30 yards.

Once again a loose baiting-up tactic proved the profitable.

A spokesman for the fishery said: “It’s great to see another of the big ‘uns break the 50 lb barrier and they just seem to go from strength to strength. It’s actually Mark’s second 50 from the fishery.”
