Leacroft 27lb 8oz ‘The Baby Common’ Feb 2017

IMG_2405Well done to Phil locke for his recent capture of this stunning Common Carp from leacfoft Pool caught late Feb 2017.

The common is a well known fish that seems to have been given the name ‘The Baby Common’, although not so much of a baby now at its biggest weight of 27lb 8oz!

This particular fish has certainly packed on some size over the winter, it was caught early 2016 at 23lb 8oz which was its weight the day I electronically chipped it and the again at the end of the Summer at 25lb. Its great to see this stunning carp progress the way it is, but does prompt the question of how big could the big common be??

Phil caught the baby common fishing at fairly close range using a new bait soon to be released from Nash called ‘The Key Cray’, which will be available shops over the coming months so may be one to try!

Finally just like to say well done to Phil on his capture and ask that members continue to send in their pictures!
