SEAN LOCKYER had to get in only his second session at Wintons Fishery before a major shoulder operation - and was pleased he did after landing this venue record 52 lb carp.
The 65-year-old landscaping boss from Tadworth, Surrey, offered a single 18 mm Mainline Cell boilie on a size 8 barbless hook at Kingfisher Lake.
Wintons Fishery is in Burgess Hill, West Sussex and is rated as a premier specimen carp and catfish venue, but also has some interesting specimens of other species too that rarely get fished for.
There are three lakes set in 33 acres of beautiful countryside with views reaching to the South Downs. The lakes are well matured and cared for, delivering countless numbers of personal bests to its members who pay £60 then a charge to fish starting at £20 for a day.
