Batchworth lake regular Wayne got in touch early Sunday morning to say he had something very special in the net I may be interested in.
Bailiffs Al West and Jason Poolman met me there to witness the weighing, we ensured my fresh set of reubens scales were zeroed perfectly and officially weighed the queen at a new top weight of 40lb and 10 oz. Her last known capture was by bailiff Dan Squire on September 8th this year at 36lb 5oz, so shes been feeding a LOT!
Despite what some might say, Batchworth is a great winter water, this being the eleventh carp out in the last seven days.
Huge well done, and certainly well deserved capture for Wayne, the queen of the lake is now Wayne’s PB.
Despite the crap weather, Wayne still received a bucket of water over his head for the PB capture.
