Big Lancashire common keeps on growing

Big Lancashire common keeps on growing

Scott Green reacquainted himself with what could be the biggest common in Lancashire at 40lb 8oz.

The fish, which Scott has now caught in the 20lb, 30lb and 40lb brackets, is known as Blackeye and came from Keer Lake on the Clear Water complex in Carnforth.

Scott told Carpfeed: “I was fortunate to have the fish in May 2014 at 29lb 14oz, then six weeks later at 30lb 9oz, and now this capture at 40lb 8oz which is massive for this area of the country and the biggest common in Lancashire to my knowledge now.”

The 30-year-old recently returned to the venue after it was given a refresh.

He said: “The new owner Alex Mollart and team have transformed the place, stocking over 300 quality fish and making the lake six or seven acres bigger. Not only that but some of the original fish have put over 10lb due to the stock being thinned out.”

On just his second session back on the venue, Scott fished to a hard area at 52yds and banked the big common.

Blackeye was caught on a blowback rig from TTT rig bits and the firm’s Winter Wonder boilies. Scott fished over a total of about 6kg of boilies and Hull Particles Chilli Mix.
