Frank gets his best ever Christmas ‘Bonus’ in the shape of a new PB mirror of 49lb 2oz!
Frank Cunningham from the Croydon area realised a dream recently landing a new personal best in the shape of the “Scar” mirror at 49lb 2oz from the jewel in the crown of RK Leisure’s Kingsmead 1 on the famous Horton Complex.
Frank, also known as “Forest” to the regulars has fished K1 all year with some great success, after the capture he had this to say about his monster catch – “Working all week, I’ve been arriving late on a Friday evening and tending not to follow the crowd and doing my own thing. Last weekend was no different, the kennel end was quite busy so I decided to fish where the least angling pressure was, this just happened to be on the back of the wind.
After settling in I found a lovely silt spot at the back of a piece of gravel and was rewarded at 7:30am the next morning with the awesome “Scar” Mirror at a new PB of 49lb 2oz! What a fish! I must say a big thank you to Alistair and Jamie Gold for their help with the taking of the picture, as luck would have it my camera decided to pack up! I’ve been doing really well on the tactic of seeking out the quieter swims and areas and have also landed the “Moonscale” mirror at 43lb 12oz earlier in the year.”
What an amazing capture and an amazing lake RK Leisure’s K1 is evolving into, it must be one of the best “Big Fish” waters in the country and there’s definitely more to come in the future from this historic venue and complex!
