The carp record has just been broken on the Main Lake with a mirror of 56-14. This despite it snowing at home just a couple of miles away! Leroy Swan was the only one fishing on the 40 acres and so a good reward for braving the cold weather.
This fish last came out 5 years ago at 45-08 so who knows what it'll weigh in another 5 years?
It was new member Leroy's first carp from Wingham and came on only his second trip. Those whose first Wingham carp is a 40 are known as Wingham Virgins and there are a lot of them. There's now 3 members of the Super Virgins club, those whose 1st Wingham carp is a 50.
Wouldn't it be great if a 50lber came out on a Fish-In? We almost had a 60 caught last year when Dan Taylor had a 60-08 from the Carp Lake just a few hours before the official start.
As the old saying goes, "You've got to be in it to win it!
